Viewing attachment ideas as familial, instead of as a dyadic process, Attachment Narrative Therapy (ANT) brings together systemic therapy and Attachment Theory, to provide a clear framework for therapeutic action that:

  • Helps our clients to name and regulate emotions
  • Allows us as therapists, as well as our clients to view emotional states and actions from relational perspectives
  • Increases understanding and tolerance for negative emotional states in intimate relationships
  • Specifically focuses on patterns of comforting and self-soothing
  • Enables the processing of emotional experience with a view to steering ourselves towards resilience and not distress
  • Promotes an understanding of trans-generational patterns of attachment seeking and caring
