In this book, Deirdre introduces a unique exploration of attachment-based approaches, integrating yogic psychology to bring relief and ease in treating trauma.
From the Introduction:
“Every child should have had the gift of safety from birth onwards. In that state of grace, a child flourishes, steps beyond their comfort zone, makes mistakes, reaches for reassurance, learns and grows from mistakes without shame.
Returning to a safe haven after stretching out into the world, the child finds out from others that they’ll be okay despite anything untoward that happened.
In this cocoon of care, a child naturally develops psychological safety (Bowlby, 1988; Holmes, 2001) with a native impulse to explore themselves and the world.”
