Our licensed counselors at Thrive Counseling in Federal Way practice various approaches to therapy, including attachment-focused therapy.
Developed by British psychologist John Bowlby in the 1960s, attachment-based therapy focuses on building or rebuilding a supportive, trusting relationship to prevent or treat depression or anxiety.
Attachment-Focused Therapy Explained
Essentially, an attachment-based approach explores the link between a child's early attachment experiences with a primary caregiver—or primary caregivers—and the child’s ability to create emotionally and physically healthy relationships.
A primary caregiver is necessary for a child’s life. It provides the support and security a child needs to explore, learn from new experiences, interact with their environment, and connect with others. Forming a trusting relationship with a parental figure or therapist can help a client form strong bonds in other relationships in their life. Attachment-focused therapy can be used in combination with other forms of counseling.
