Attachment-based Therapy in London
What is Attachment-based Therapy?
Attachment-based Therapy is a considered a brief form of psychological counselling. The focus is on the expression of emotions while establishing and building trust in the relationship between clients and therapists. This approach examines the attachments and connections between infants and their caregivers and focuses on the infant’s ability to develop appropriately, resulting in the ability to form healthy emotional and physical connections in their adult life.
Attachment-based Therapy may be used in individual, family, couples, and group therapy and is appropriate for children and adults. The primary goal of Attachment-based Therapy is to help clients mend or recover from fractured family relationships. Attachment-based Therapy has been used to treat adolescents who are contemplating suicide or experiencing depression. The premise of Attachment-based Therapy is that a strong early attachment to a caregiver in infancy is necessary to instill a sense of security in the infant, allowing the infant to explore, learn from new experiences, and establish connections with others.
How does Attachment-based Therapy work?
- You and your therapist will work together to address the impact of the fractured familial relationship.
- You will be asked to participate in group sessions with your family members to rebuild and strengthen the relationships within the family unit.
- You will work with your therapist to address attachment issues and will strive to form a secure bond with your therapist.
