Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy has several positive outcomes.

Six positive outcomes from successful EFT include:

  1. Partners are emotionally engaged.
  2. Partners experience improved power in the relationship.
  3. Partners have improved self-awareness and awareness of the other.
  4. Partners are able to take the focus off of the other’s flaws and begin to understand more about their own fears and longings.
  5. Partners increase their self-worth which stimulates an appetite for additional connection.
