How I work with attachment

Do you have a strong need for confirmation through your relationships, or do you rather prefer to keep your distance? The various types of insecure attachment – anxious-avoidant, anxious-ambivalent or disorganized attachment – can have a strong influence on your emotional and relational development and cause problems also in adult life. For example, you might have experienced a need to be physically close to a partner and to be confirmed continuously – or you might alternately tend to avoid emotional intimacy to others.

Fortunately, it is possible to work with and change insecure attachment patterns also later in life. In my therapeutic work with attachment themes, I follow these universally recognized basic principles:

  • Experiences with insecure attachment are real events – not just memories from childhood.
  • The type of attachment which you have learned in early childhood will also shape your adult relationships.
  • For the therapy to have an effect on the old attachment patterns, it is crucial that I am able to relate to you not only on a cognitive level of understanding – but also on an intuitive, emotional level, both with and without words. The cognitive brain alone is not enough to influence the parts of your nervous system where your attachment patterns are stored.

The fundamental idea is that I can meet you with a stability and inner security which enables you to find your own resources to feel secure and understood – also on an emotional level. This obviously requires a high degree of clarity and integrity on my side, which I offer my clients on a daily basis.

If you feel like arranging a meeting where you can find out for yourself if my way of being a therapist will fit your needs, call me on +45 4033 4867 or send a mail to post@gestaltterapeut.dk.
