Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) is invaluable for helping people understand and manage the attachment styles that shape their relationships.
It is a powerful way to explore the underlying emotions and assumptions that inform how we interact with others. At its core, EFT creates a safe, non-judgmental space for individuals to identify and help them to accept and recognise the impact of their attachment styles on their relationships and to work through any associated feelings of hurt, fear, or confusion.
EFT also allows individuals to gain insight into forming and maintaining relationships. Through this process, they can learn how to better recognize and respond to their own and others’ emotional needs. This understanding can help them to build healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
With her expertise, Ayana helps her clients look inwardly and work introspectively to bring about a positive shift in their lives. She guides them in illuminating the parts kept in the dark, allowing them to shine.
