Melbourne Community of Emotionally Focused Therapy write:

EFT helps you strengthen and deepen your relationship in a caring and supportive context generating greater closeness, connection and intimacy.

An EFT Therapist can help you create closeness and security in your relationship, help you tune into your feelings and needs, and help you share them with your partner.

You will understand more about your needs for safety and connection and find ways to encourage your partner to help meet those needs.

As your emotions and needs are understood and responded to, your relationship changes, moving toward greater closeness and appreciation of each other.
