“We repeat what we don’t repair. This keeps us trapped in a cycle of conflict and mutual pain”


Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples is a therapeutic approach that works with couples to acknowledge their own individual experiences, attachment-oriented emotional responses along with the couple’s patterns and cycles of behaviours. Sessions begin with an intake assessment to help the therapist learn what goals the couple has for therapy and to watch the dynamic between the couple while in session. The following sessions will include two separate individual therapy sessions to better understand each partner’s history and goals for therapy, along with their individualized perspectives of the ongoing issues. After the assessment process is completed, all future sessions will include the therapist and the couple, working towards interventions that will help the couple reach their goals for therapy.

Our couple’s therapists at Exhale have completed EFT-C training and have experience working with a variety of issues including (but not limited to) loss of connection, infidelity, communication issues, frequent conflict or arguments, separation, stressors and differences of opinion.
