We all have profound needs for safety, belonging and to be accepted and valued by others. The patterns we establish to get these needs met begin to form as we are infants, in response to the interactions we have with our caregivers and the world around us. These patterns are played out over and over, again and again in our closest relationships, through childhood and into adulthood. Certain types of patterns bring a sense of safety, confidence and well being into our lives and relationships, while others can lead to pain, confusion, and unfulfilled needs and expectations.
We carry our own acquired attachment patterns with us into each of our relationships as adults. Nowhere is this more evident than in our relationships with our own children. Although attachment patterns are deeply rooted, they are not fixed attributes that we have no control over. With education, awareness, and appropriate intervention, you can choose to interact in more healthy and secure ways with your children than what may have been taught to you.
We work with parents, helping them become aware of their own attachment patterns and how these patterns show up in their parenting. We teach them how to recognize and meet the attachment needs of their children, and strengthen these relationships. In doing this, they become more empowered to build healthy secure foundations for and with their children.
