The Philosophy Behind Attachment Therapy
Even before the moment of our birth, our developing being feels our mother's movements, hears hers and others' voices, feels her body responding to her joy, anger, fear, anxiety and the environment around her.
These early experiences we have during our conception, birth and in the first few years of our lives helps to determine how we cope with stress and how we relate to self and others. This crucial time has a major impact on our physical and mental health and the way we attach to our self and others. It sets up and shapes the way we perceive the world around us. Whether we feel safe in the world, whether we feel trusting of others, whether we feel we can get our true needs met and ask for support. It also creates the foundation for the way our physical body and nervous system develops.
How Attachment Therapy Works
Attachment Therapy explores your early imprints and patterns (your Pre and Perinatal Psychology). Exploring these early physical and emotional patterns and thus better understanding your attachment style, gives you a chance to re-pattern healthy relationships with yourself and your primary relationships.
