What is family therapy?

Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) aims to repair and strengthen family bonds by cultivating safe patterns of interaction in which there is effective attachment, emotional response and connectedness. It uncovers and restructures negative patterns of parent-child relationships by creating new patterns of secure connectedness. Helps family members recognize unconscious emotions and attachment needs, supporting both their relationships and each person's personal growth and well-being.

How does family therapy work?

Family therapy usually involves all or part of the family members living together in the sessions, depending on the specific problem. Often, however, individual family members may do individual therapy.

Working with the family therapist, family members explore their ability to share thoughts and express emotions. They become aware of certain rules that operate in the family, understand the roles they occupy and the patterns of behavior in the family context. Discover their individual and family strengths as well as their weaknesses. They learn new and better ways of communicating and dealing with certain conflicts.

At our center, we use a systems approach and an emotionally focused approach to family therapy. We embrace the unique needs of each client and work with all configurations and origins in which the modern family exists.
