Independent Counselling T​raining

Childhood Attachments and Adult Relationships 

with Kathy Mitchell

Saturday 26th February 9.30am to 4.30pm

This practical and interactive workshop will be of interest to counsellors working with individuals as well as those beginning to work with couples. It provides a foundation for understanding the development and dynamics underlying our intimate relationships and an introduction to the application of attachment theory to couples counselling.

This workshop is intended to be accessible to therapists at all levels of training and experience and will therefore involve an introduction to the principles of attachment theory.

The day will be facilitated by Kathy Mitchell and invites you to reflect upon the implications of childhood attachments on adult relationships. Specifically the focus will be on introducing the theory and application of Sue Johnson's model of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) which combines theories of attachment with a structured systemic approach and a person centred way of being. Alongside the presentation of theory there will be opportunity for practical demonstration and exercises to enable identification of attachment styles within ourselves and in relation to our clients.

Kathy Mitchell MSc, BACP (Accred) has a background in psychology and 20 years experience as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer. Kathy's thriving practice is based in Cambridge and she can be found at
