#71 Attachment Theory – Where is My Mind?

Welcome to The Therapy Room series, where Niall is joined by psychologists Dr. Tony Bates and Louize Carroll to discuss approaches to a variety of different themes that come up in the therapy setting.

In this episode, Tony and Louize discuss attachment theory, stripping it back to the basics, explaining attachment styles and discussing how having a better understanding of our attachment to childhood caregivers can help us to approach our adult relationships in a healthier way.

Dr Tony Bates was Head of Psychology for 30 years in St James’s Hospital Dublin, he established and directed the MSc Cognitive Psychotherapy in TCD, he also founded Jigsaw (The National Centre for Youth Mental Health) in 2006 to meet the mental health needs young people.
Louize Carroll, a consultant psychologist, was part of the implementation and establishment of Jigsaw across Ireland, she is co-founder of a new online therapy platform called PRISM Therapy Online, provides direct therapy, works on prolific child protection cases and delivers leadership development training.

Both are two of the most compelling and illuminating speakers on the human condition, on suffering and on the therapeutic process. Together in the Therapy Room episodes each month, we will be discussing approaches to a variety of different problems that are encountered in the therapy setting. Tony and Louize will talk about what they’ve learned being in the privileged position of being let into people’s innermost worlds, and we invite suggestions from our listeners on any specific mental health or general life struggle themes or topics you might want to know more about.
