Emotion-focused therapy (EFT) is a therapeutic approach based on the premise that emotions are key to identity. According to EFT, emotions are also a guide for individual choice and decision making. This type of therapy assumes that lacking emotional awareness or avoiding unpleasant emotions can cause harm. It may render us unable to use the important information emotions provide. Through EFT you learn to: Become more aware of emotions; Learn to welcome, allow, and regulate emotions; Learn to describe emotions clearly and in detail; Increase awareness of the multiple layers of emotional experiences and learn to identify the most direct reaction and increase mental health and wellbeing.
