Emotion-Focused Therapy is an effective transdiagnostic treatment for the common symptoms that underlie depression, anxiety, and other related disorders.

Given the high comorbidity of mental health symptoms and our growing understanding of psychopathology, transdiagnostic treatments are becoming more and more common. This book conceptualizes Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) as a transdiagnostic approach for treating a variety of mental health problems by accessing and transforming the underlying vulnerability of the core emotional pain and, in light of this, examining clusters of symptoms such as anxiety.

The authors use elements of a modular approach that is the culmination of a decade-long research program. They target some symptom-level presentations, as well as the underlying emotional vulnerability that manifests in depression, anxiety, and other related disorders.

This approach integrates a range of symptom-level EFT tasks, including tasks aimed at facilitating regulation of emotional distress, as well as tasks that specifically target self-worrying, rumination, perfectionism, and other discrete symptoms. Strategies that target clusters of symptoms, such as two-chair dialogues and self-interruption, are illustrated through richly detailed session transcripts.

This book helps mental health professionals enable their clients to access emotional vulnerability, facilitate emotional regulation, guide emotional transformation processes, and engage in healthy interpersonal experiences.


Drawing on extensive research and clinical experience, this book teaches EFT concisely and movingly. I recommend it for every therapist who wants to maximize their therapeutic effectiveness by capitalizing on the transforming power of emotion.
Shigeru Iwakabe, PhD, Professor, Ochanomizu University, Tokyo, Japan, July 2021

This scholarly and innovative book makes a valuable contribution to clinical theory and treatment by establishing core emotional vulnerability as a common factor underlying mental health issues, and making that the main target of treatment. Its detailed clinical examples of how to conceptualize, work with, and transform core painful emotions will be useful to any clinician.
Serine Warwar, PhD, Founder and Director, Centre for Psychology and Emotional Health, and Director, Emotion-Focused Therapy Clinic, York University, Toronto, ON, Canada, July 2021

Timulak and Keogh bring EFT into the 2020s with clear, straightforward writing and logical development of ideas; compelling clinical examples; and the latest thinking about EFT theory and practice. This essential book delineates appropriate roles for symptom-level versus core-pain-related work, and offers a groundbreaking application of EFT with obsessive-compulsive disorder, integration of EFT homework/self-reflection work, and practical information about brief and long-term versions of EFT.
Robert Elliott, PhD, Professor of Counselling, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, July 2021

An inspirational book! This volume is a major contribution to EFT and the treatment of the most prevalent mental health problems. It addresses a major shift in the practice of psychotherapy, leading clinicians away from disorder-specific treatment models and guiding them to target and promote enduring, deeper emotional change, which is crucial for the treatment of a wide scope of emotional disorders.
Carla Cunha, PhD, Associate Professor, University of Maia – ISMAI, Maia, Portugal, and coordinator of the Erasmus+ project [email protected], involving five European countries, July 2021
