Using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy to Help  Couples Remove the Blocks to Building Real Connection

     Dr. Campbell specializes in helping distressed couples explore and heal their relationship using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy in the Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco counties area.  

Dr. Campbell  specializes in  working with  couples  who  find  themselves  distressed  in their  relationships.  She  uses an  approach  known  as  Emotionally  Focused Therapy (EFT) in helping  these  couples  to  remove  the  blocks  to real connection. EFT is a  structured  approach  to couple’s  therapy  formulated in the 1980's and has  developed  alongside  the  science  on adult attachment  and bonding to expand  our understanding  about what is happening in couple relationships and to guide therapists in working more effectively with couples they see in their practices.  

    In the last fifteen years, Dr. Sue Johnson and her colleagues have further developed and refined the model and completed numerous studies.  A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.

     EFT is being used with many different kinds of couples in private practice, university training centers and hospital clinics and many different cultural groups throughout the world. 

Strengths of Emotionally Focused Therapy

EFT is based on clear, explicit conceptualizations of partner distress and adult love. These conceptualizations are supported by empirical research on the nature of partner distress and adult attachment.  EFT is collaborative and respectful of clients need to move toward change in a place that feels safe and encouraging, and at a pace that is comfortable for them. Change strategies and interventions are specified. Key moves and moments in the change process have been mapped into nine steps and three change events. EFT has been validated by over 20 years of empirical research. There is also research on the change processes and predictors of success. EFT has been applied to many different kinds of problems and populations.
