Do you find it hard to control your emotions? Do your emotions often dictate your response? Do you wish you had the techniques to harness your emotions and move forward with your life?
If you answered yes to any of the above, I encourage you to explore Emotion-Focused Therapy or EFT.
EFT is an approach to therapy treatment based on the premise that our emotions are a key to our identity and a guide for decision making. When we lack awareness of our emotions or avoid unpleasant emotions, we are unable to use the information provided by these emotions.
EFT helps individuals to:
- Become more aware of their emotions
- Welcome, allow and regulate emotions
- Describe emotions clearly and in detail
- Evaluate whether the emotions are helpful or hurtful
- Identify the source of unhelpful emotions
- Develop alternative, healthy ways of coping with situations that often elicit hurtful emotions
Unlike other therapeutic approaches, EFT assumes that emotion can be a source of healing and works with specific emotions to increase adaptation.
If you are seeking help identifying, utilizing, and processing your emotions, I encourage you to contact me today. Together, we’ll work on increasing awareness of emotions, separating useful from hurtful emotions, and using healthy emotions to guide action.
Contact me today. I look forward to speaking with you about how I can help.
Are you a parent of teenagers, struggling to maintain peace in your home?
Do you have a hard time addressing disagreements with your boss or co-workers?
Do you and your partner have arguments that never seem to get resolved?
Conflict resolution therapy can teach you how to cope in challenging situations by helping you focus on finding solutions as you navigate conflict. In any type of relationship, be it personal or professional, conflict is bound to happen. It's not reasonable or realistic to expect two people to always agree on everything. Even though conflict is a normal, healthy part of any relationship, trying to deal with it when it comes up can feel anything but healthy or normal. Since disagreements are an expected part of life, learning to handle them in a positive and meaningful way is crucial.
After an argument with a friend, romantic partner, or co-worker, you may avoid them in an attempt to "keep the peace." You may hope that over time, the issue will resolve itself. By avoiding conflict or pretending nothing happened, you'll create additional tension as this unspoken problem remains between you and the other person.
The next time you have a disagreement, one or both of you will be angry or resentful from the previous disagreement that was never resolved. Conflict resolution therapy will help you see conflict as an opportunity to develop your character and improve your relationships. You'll learn to successfully manage stress, control emotions, and focus on resolving the issue at hand.
So if you…
- Have a co-worker you struggle to get along with
- Can't seem to come to an agreement with your spouse on important issues
- Have an argumentative friend or family member
- Want to learn how to "fight fair" with your spouse or partner
- Need help managing your emotions during an argument
- Want to find healthier, more effective ways of communicating your needs
…then Conflict Resolution Therapy can help.
We can show you how to find the source of conflict so you can work quickly towards a resolution. We'll teach you how to focus on a solution instead of shutting down, blaming, or resenting the other person.
Conflict resolution therapy will help you learn that while you can't control the other person, you can control how you respond.
If you're having difficulties in the workplace or at home and need support, conflict resolution therapy can teach you conflict resolution skills so you can handle any situation. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
