Event description


SWITCH ON SECURITY is a series of 4 transformational weekend workshops over several months facilitated by Monique Rutherford, a psychotherapist and trainer with over 20 years experience.

Have you ever noticed that some adults have happy and enriching relationships that nourish their sense of self in the world while others are on a roller coaster of emotions, in and out of relationship or have simply just given up on ever getting the love they long for?

Psychologists and researchers have been studying love relationships through the lens of attachment theory for many decades and can determine if you either have a secure relational style or an insecure one. Those with secure attachment have been shown to live more whole-hearted, happier and healthier lives.

Luckily, regardless of our relational wounding in the past, our brains are wired to move toward security and this program is designed to do just that!!

Based on leading-edge neuroscience, attachment research and trauma informed principles, Monique weaves together elements of mindful emotional regulation processes, self compassion exercises, body & breathe awareness, movement, journaling and creativity processes in each workshop to:

• Help you understand your attachment style, where it came from and how it plays out in your everyday relationships
• Explore any adaptations you’ve developed that constrict what’s possible in experiencing love
• Empower you to make any behavioural changes that increase the flow of love
• Discover the advantages and disadvantages of your attachment style and that of your loved ones
• Discover and express your unique attachment needs
• Learn to identify the attachment style of others & what to look for and what to walk away from when dating
• Let go of any resentment you may be holding onto, past or present and learn the importance of repair
• Uncover any heart wounds you carry gently and compassionately and discover the gifts they have to offer
• Experience security in a safe group setting
• Embody a felt sense of emotional security, which is wired into each and every one of us.

This series of workshops over several months is for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of the application of Attachment principles. It is for folks who are curious about their part in their relationship dynamics and who want to understand themselves, their loved ones, their clients or colleagues with more empathy & compassion in order to experience more authentic relating.

These workshops are essential for understanding all human dynamics and interactions and how to bring about less conflict and greater contact. It is for anyone interested in the application of Attachment Theory principles both personally and/or professionally, in healing attachment wounds.
