It’s critical to learn your attachment style if you want to drastically improve yourself and your relationships. We’ve covered attachment styles in past episodes and will continue to do so because it can be such a powerful tool to understand dynamics and thus help improve your life. Individuals who display anxious attachment styles can sometimes have a lot more to navigate in life than those who are securely attached. Listen to today’s show to learn more about anxious attachment and how to heal and thrive with it.

In this episode with Jessica Baum, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • What anxious attachment is and how it forms
  • How someone who is anxiously attached can heal and move toward secure attachment
  • How to tune into your body to help heal
  • The negative dance between anxious and avoidant partners, and how to stop it
  • How to hold more space for the wounded parts of yourself
  • How you can heal in the container of a safe relationship
  • And much more!
