  • “I think the group would be helpful to all parents, regardless of their children’s ages or needs or their specific life experiences. I went into the group thinking that I already understood attachment and had a positive relationship with my children and therefore probably wouldn’t benefit from the course, and have been blown away by how much I have learnt and the fundamental change in perspective that it has given me."
