At the Philadelphia Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), we are committed to helping people create healthy and resilient relationships. Our center has a dual purpose: to provide training and information to professionals wanting to learn and and grow their EFT expertise and to provide information, workshops and referrals for couples seeking help with their relationship.
EFT is a short-term, empirically valdiated therapy that helps couples get to the heart of their problems quickly, develop secure bonds over time and lasting positive changes in their relationship. Research shows us that 70 % of couples who receive Emotionally Focused Therapy not only improve, but state that their relationship feels better and they are closer in new and different ways. If you are experiencing conflict in your closest relationships, or are a therapist seeking to improve your skills in working with couples and families, we are here to help and serve as a resource for you.
We are a consortium of professionals dedicated to maintaining the highest professional standards in couple and family therapy. We provide individual, couple and family therapy throughout the greater Philadelphia area, and training and supervision to mental health professionals wishing to increase their effectiveness in working with couples and families. We are affiliated with the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy, directed by Susan Johnson, Ed.D.
Our mission is:
- To be a resource for individuals, couples and families seeking therapists qualified in the practice of EFT
- To offer training and supervision for professionals seeking excellence in EFT
- To expand public awareness of EFT through educational seminars and workshops
- To support therapists wishing to become certified in EFT
