Attachment Trauma

When our parents were unable to meet out emotional or physical needs in childhood, we do not securely attach to adult figures, and our trust in others, ourselves, and the world is disrupted. We become anxious or avoidant in the ways we handle relationships with others, either needing constant reassurance the person is there for us or feeling engulfed when people get too close to us. By working through these issues, we can change our attachment style to a more secure style and have healthier relationships and learn to trust ourselves and others.
