Attachment Based Therapy

Attachment Based Therapy

Many adults have come to realize that they have difficulty feeling belonging & safety in their close relationships.  Attachment theory research holds that the emotional bonds formed early in life are responsible for the bonds that develops between adults in emotionally intimate relationships.

How Attachment Based Therapy Works:

By working with the present moment experience of the relationship with the therapist clients have an opportunity to better understand their relational templates that arise unconsciously.  Specifically noticing what arises that blocks out a sense of safety & belonging and also learn & strengthen their pathways for fully feeling and taking in present moment goodness. 

With attachment-based therapy, the therapist sits in a state of attuned presence that allows them to fully experience the client's feelings, no matter what comes up for them. In other words, the therapist isn't just an observer of the client's emotional journey or even a disinterested guide, but a fellow traveler, resonating with the client's sadness, anger, and anxiety, and openness.  Through this attuned relationship the counselor and client create the conditions needed for healing earlier attachment wounding.
