EMDR for Attachment

Attachment Therapy

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) can be adapted for attachment-focused therapy, such as the Parnell Attachment-Focused EMDR protocol.

Integrating attachment theory principles, this approach targets relational trauma to develop attachment security.

Therapy works on early attachment experiences, identifying disruptions impacting present relationships. Through bilateral stimulation like eye movements, clients process attachment-related memories, emotions, and beliefs.

The goal is to heal attachment wounds, restructure maladaptive relational patterns, and cultivate greater trust and security in relationships. By addressing attachment trauma, clients gain self-awareness, improve interpersonal functioning and reclaim areas of their life.

Attachment-focused EMDR offers a holistic approach for supporting people to heal from early attachment experiences and reclaim ownership of current relational challenges, to develope more fulfilling relationships.
