Karen Fisher Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist UKCP Registered

A warm welcome

About me. Karen FisherThank you for visiting my website. I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist based in Hastings & St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex; and I am currently working online by Zoom.

My four year professional psychotherapy training at the Bowlby Centre in London was in the attachment-based approach pioneered by John Bowlby. It emphasises our need for others and the impact on us when early relationships are insecure, dangerous or abandoning.

'…the human psyche, like human bones, is strongly inclined towards self-healing. The psychotherapist’s job, like that of the orthopaedic surgeon, is to provide the conditions in which self-healing can best take place.'

I am an Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and I'm committed to providing psychotherapy in a warm, empathic and non-judgemental environment. By providing this secure base, clients have the opportunity to share experiences and feelings they may not have been able to talk about before. A secure, therapeutic relationship makes it possible for people to explore the impact of important relationships and mourn past losses - so that healing of early experiences of misattunement, separation and trauma can take place.

Attachment-based psychotherapy has at its core an understanding of the importance of relationships to human development and growth throughout life. When we feel alone - or relationships go wrong in childhood or adulthood - our ability to manage may be disrupted, or we may be thrown into crisis. Supportive relationships enable usto develop a sense of who we are; attachment-based psychotherapy offers a secure base from which to explore and heal.
