Attachment-base therapy Masterclass


Attachment—Based  counselling  and therapy  has  multiple  approaches. This workshop  explores how  to  conceptualise and  apply  a  range  of  evidenced Attachment-based  approaches in an integrated  manner.  The integrated manner utilises  a unique overlay  of  models  that  lay  the foundation  of  conceptualising  the  moment  of  interaction  in  an  attachment-based  framework to analyse  what  moment  is  this?  For  both  the  client and  the therapist.  Once  the moment  is understood,  the intervention  choice  and  action  steps  are  easier  to  apply. 

The neuroscience of care-giving and parenting is critical to responding to the needs of all children, especially those traumatised and at-risk children and young people. An in-depth understanding of attachment and the process of therapeutic engagement has been used as the basis for the development of integrated attachment-based counselling and therapy. It is also at the heart of family functioning and therapeutic relationships.  Our training aims to strengthen therapeutic relationships, client’s parenting capacity through enhancing reflective functioning, arousal and trauma response management as well as helping clinicians, clients, parents and children understand their survival strategies and provide extra tools for living and relational responding. 

The  workshop explores; 

Dynamic Maturational Model,

Circle  of Security, 


Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy,   

Neuroscience of development, 

Trauma informed approaches,  

Somatic and  body connections.
