Attachment theory is focused on the relationships and bonds between people, particularly long-term relationships, including those between a parent and child and between romantic partners. Our earliest bonds built as children have a significant impact on our patterns in adult relationships. Attachment wounds, or unmet emotional needs, create a push or pull in relationships. When we understand our attachment, we are better able to engage in changing behavior.
This approach is built on the understanding that emotion underlies all of our thoughts and behavior. When our underlying emotions are identified and attended to, we are able to calm both physiologically, as well as create lasting change. Emotionally Focused Therapy helps clients to better understand the "why" of what we do in a compassionate and non-judgmental way.
