Attachment Theory in counselling

Presenter: Kathleen Brown

Kathleen will look at how early attachment to the primary caregiver effects development of the child and how that manifests in behaviour in the child and adult client.

All participants will gain some skills and understanding of their clients and may look at themselves and how their background moulds their thinking.

Kathleen is a Registered Counsellor with the Australian Counsellors Association and has a Graduate Certificate in Counselling and Family Therapy. She has worked in the area of counselling of adult survivors of child abuse for many years. She has experience in tutoring and mentoring counselling students for the Australian Institute Family Counselling. 

Kathleen works with individuals as she counsels a variety of issues including abuse, relationships, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, eating disorders and grief and loss. 

Previous experiences in a range of occupations helps give a broad understanding of client backgrounds. Kathleen has stretched her talents with extended periods in teaching, real estate, road safety, office management, strata management and marketing. 

As a counsellor, she enjoys helping clients find freedom from their false beliefs. Kathleen understands that our past has influenced our present but it need not dictate our future. Our life experience, positive or negative, make us who we are today and can be effective tools in creating who we aspire to be tomorrow. She believes that with the right tools and support, everyone can live life with peace and joy.
