What are attachment therapies?
Attachment therapies are based upon psychological knowledge about the essential role played in our lives by relationships, particularly those with relatives and partners.  Attachment therapies is a general term used for several different types of attachment based therapy which support children, families and adults who experience attachment difficulties.

What do attachment therapies do?
Attachment therapies are supportive to children and adults who experience difficulties in forming trusting, emotionally healthy relationships with others as a consequence of maltreatment or other adverse psychological circumstances .  For example, long periods of hospitalization during early childhood.   We are able to provide face to face psychological therapy sessions and professional consultation regarding attachment based strategies which are fun and interactive that parents or primary caregivers can use to strengthen the parent-child bond.  We also provide attachment based face to face psychotherapy sessions to adolescents and adults with attachment problems.

What sort of problems can it be used on?
Attachment therapies can be used to help both children and adults who have suffered abuse, neglect or serious psychological trauma.  Attachment based therapeutic techniques can also be beneficial for young people with behaviour problems and for people with developmental difficulties including those on the autistic spectrum.   Attachment therapies have also been found to improve people’s self-esteem and promote emotional wellbeing.
