Emotions are a vital part of wellbeing. The way we feel often times gives insight into how we experience life. On the other hand, being overwhelmed by emotions or ignoring them can lead to a certain disconnection with our inner selves.
Therefore, working through your feelings is as important as experiencing them. After all, you may not want to live a life dictated by your emotions.
Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) is a psychologic approach that addresses emotions in an insightful way. The practice of EFT evolves around identifying, exploring, accepting and transforming emotions.
