ROll with the punches

Creating Secure Relationships (Attachment Theory)

1 in 2 humans have a ‘secure attachment style’. The remaining 1 in 2 humans are either ‘anxious’, ‘avoidant’ or ‘disorganized’… Fumbling through life, attracting the equal and opposite trait to potentially feed those differing levels of dysfunction and chaos. Fascinating, I know… So there’s a 50% chance your date or potential partner (or hubby/wife) has some ‘issues’ to address. AND here’s the fun part.. that leaves a 50% chance that YOU have some ‘issues’ to work through yourself! (Don’t worry, I myself fall very much into that undesirable second category).

So here’s a conversation around all things understanding your attachment style and creating healthy relationships with one of the world’s top relationship therapists who specialises in just that… With just shy of a million Instagram followers it’s fair to say she’s one of the best in the business and we talk about some brilliant stuff.
