Want to understand yourself on a deeper level and discover if your attachment style is making or breaking your relationships?
What is attachment style?
Your attachment style forms early in life, and is based upon the feelings you experienced as a small child – namely, to what degree you felt safe, understood, seen, and loved. What many people don’t realise is that your Attachment Style is one of the most influential forces in a relationship. This means that the success - or failure - of a relationship is largely determined by your Attachment Style. Further, your Attachment Style also impacts your friendships, familial relationships and workplace dynamics. The first step towards applying attachment theory to your life is to get to know yourself and those around you from an attachment perspective. Knowing your attachment profile will help you understand yourself better and guide you with your interactions with others. Ideally this will lead to more happiness in your relationships.

Secure You are naturally warm and loving in relationships. You tend to be the ‘rock’ within a relationship. Generally self-aware and emotionally available, you are confident in your relationship abilities and are well grounded – you communicate your needs and feelings well. Avoidant
You will often want a relationship to work, but are unconsciously very fearful of being close. You may be prone to low self-esteem and lack of trust, therefore giving your partner less kudos or respect than they deserve. Others may describe you as being unpredictable or dramatic.
