With my exquisite friends Bryan & Jennifer, we explore the topic of avoidance in relationships through the lens of Attachment Theory.
For the partner of an avoidant attacher, we'll cover:
★ How to bring the avoidant attacher out of their funk
★ How to detect the edge of an avoidant’s intimacy comfort zone, and avoid pushing them out of it (hint: it’s not with your mind)
★ How to create a deep fulfilling intimate relationship that is also safer for avoidant attachers
For the avoidant partner, we'll explore
★ How to safely communicate to your partner that you’re in a funk and need space (without making them worry)
★ How to share with your partner how they can safely connect with you
★ How to take your space so you can fully show up in the relationship
★ How your need for space is can be a need for time to be with yourself (and how to use this time effectively)
★ Discovering your emotional pace so you can share about it without shame and your partner can be with you on the journey.
For both partners, we'll look at:
★ The (sometimes slow and courageous) journey to a secure attachment style
★ The emotional and somatic dance of attachment styles
★ The true gift of each attachment style
