Although most therapies contain an emotional component, Emotion Focused Therapy puts one’s emotions front and center. In Emotion Focused Therapy, the focus is on not only becoming aware of one’s emotions, but understanding those emotions, accepting them, expressing them constructively, and ultimately moving past them. Instead of viewing emotions as unwanted and unhelpful, Emotion Focused Therapy allows someone to learn that their emotions are actually helpful in providing information on one’s current state and can be useful in choosing a path forward. There is a strong emphasis on experiencing, rather than pushing away, emotions in the context of a trusting and caring therapeutic relationship. Through this process, people can reclaim disowned emotions and empower themselves to live in harmony with their emotions, rather than fighting against them.
