WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This course has been created for those who experience anxious and/or avoidant attachment patterns and would like to create more safety, stability, consistency, emotional availability, reciprocity, trust, honesty, depth, love and security in their relationships (with friends, family or romantic partner/s); as well as more authenticity, confidence, trust, openness, receptivity and ease in their own being.
Check out the weekly topics below to see if you resonate with what we’re exploring!

WHAT IS ANXIOUS ATTACHMENT (AND CAN IT CHANGE TO SECURE)?
Anxious Attachment is a pattern of bonding or connecting with others where the person can feel very insecure, anxious, jealous, ‘clingy’, ‘needy’, distrustful or hyper-vigilant.
It is common with this attachment style to experience a desperate longing for closeness yet a strong anticipation of rejection or disappointment. It is also common to feel emotionally unmet by partners, needing a lot of reassurance and feeling a sense of abandonment at the simplest of things.
Those with a tendency for Anxious/Ambivalent Attachment can find relationships de-stabilising, turbulent, chaotic, drama-filled, unfulfilling, stressful and disappointing, and can struggle to find someone who can offer them consistency and emotional availability.
The security, commitment, stability, trust and consistency of a Securely Attached relationship can feel like an elusive experience that they’re constantly chasing. But I can assure you that it is possible to heal & transform your attachment style to Secure!!
WHAT IS AVOIDANT ATTACHMENT (AND CAN IT CHANGE TO SECURE)?
Avoidant Attachment shows up as a fear of intimacy, which compels the person to keep others at 'arms length', prioritise their independence and freedom, withdraw when others get to close, keep their heart guarded, avoid commitment and engage in behaviours that disrupt connection (like fantasising about exes, fixating on a partner's flaws, overly focusing on work/hobbies, not leaving much space in life for relationship time).
Someone with this attachment style tends to be drawn toward partners with anxious attachment (see above). They become irritated or overwhelmed by the anxious partner's 'neediness'. They are hyper-vigilant around perceived control, attempts to 'hook' them in to commitment or any loss of their freedom & autonomy. This causes them to push away from relationships as a form of self-preservation.
If this is you, it's absolutely possible to shift to Secure Attachment. This course will explore what is needed for this attachment style to feel safer to open to love, let down your walls and trust another person, without feeling like you're going to lose yourself!
HOW WILL THIS COURSE BENEFIT ME?
We are wired for secure, healthy attachment – sometimes we just need some guidance and support to get there, which is exactly what this 9-week course will focus on. Below are some of the important elements that will be most beneficial for you:
Each week we will cover a different core theme of healing & cultivating secure attachment. The sessions include a Teaching Component and an Experiential Component – so that you’re creating awareness AND embodying what you’ve learned.
The Teaching Component (discourse) will help you to gain a deep understanding of why you think, behave & feel the way you do with these patterns – as well as what else is possible in relationships!
The Experiential Component will include guidance through attachment healing and embodiment practices – either solo, in pairs or within small groups. This in itself creates a massive advantage over books/online courses or just teachings alone, because you’re not just learning concepts; you’re embodying, feeling, healing, integrating, and experiencing the teachings for much deeper growth! It is during these practices that your nervous system will receive a lot of re-wiring toward feeling the experience of Secure Attachment so that your attachment style begins to change from insecure to secure!
A trained and compassionate Emotional Support Team will also be there for you during the evenings, especially during the guided practices, which can be very emotionally evocative. As the saying goes “You’ve got to feel it to heal it.” This is the perfect place for it.
There will be heaps of support, encouragement & accountability available to you. You’re not alone in this! We’ve got your back and your heart!
You’ll gather with a group of like-minded people who really understand how challenging insecure attachment can be and are ready to grow and learn together! This makes for an incredibly validating, relatable and supportive environment to be in as you move through this complex, challenging AND highly rewarding journey. The connections that form during these courses are SO beautiful and such an important part of the experience.
You’ll also have access to a private online group (included) and (optional) private sessions with Georgia Rose to make sure you’ve got plenty of support!
It’s going to be incredible!
SECURE IN LOVE COURSE OUTLINE:
WEEK ONE: Understanding Attachment & Welcome to the Course!

*Teachings: You'll receive an overview of Anxious, Avoidant & Secure Attachment styles, meet the group and get clear on your intentions for the course.
*Experiential component: Welcome to the group, Beginning a New Chapter of Self-Discovery & Healing
WEEK TWO: Connection to Self and Re-Parenting the Inner Child
*Teaching component: Our attachment styles and relationship patterns primarily form during our younger years and continue to repeat into adulthood. This week you'll learn how to cultivate secure attachment and safety from within, how to soothe relational fears and open to love. Understanding the inner child, self-healing, emotional regulation and how to show up for yourself with courage and consistency.
*Experiential component: Self-regulation, re-parenting and somatic emotional processing
WEEK THREE: Healing the Father Wound
*Teaching component: Our parents form our primary imprints of relationships and our own identity. This week we'll explore the 'father wound' and its impact on attachment/relationships/self-worth. We'll also explore healthy "masculine" energy to support self-love and relationships.
* Experiential component: Guided healing process around the Father Wound and embodiment practices to reclaim the qualities of healthy inner masculine energy - presence, guidance, support, protection, stability, safety, awareness, consistency
WEEK FOUR: Healing the Mother Wound
* Teaching component: Our parents form our primary imprints of relationship and our own identity - especially our Mother. This week you'll learn about the 'mother wound' and its impact on attachment/relationships/self-worth. We'll also explore healthy feminine energy to support self-love and relationships.
* Experiential component: Guided healing process. Embodiment practices to reclaim the qualities of healthy inner feminine energy - nurture, acceptance, love, compassion, vulnerability, softness, boundaries
WEEK FIVE: Shadow Work in Relationships
*Teaching component: Our Shadows are the unconscious aspects of self that often wreak havoc in relationships and sabotage the intimacy we desire! We'll explore the foundations of shadow work and understand how your relationships are mirrors of your own unconscious (shadows). When triggered, people will often revert to being 'adult-children', project their shit onto one another and stay stuck in exhausting, dysfunctional cycles. Tonight will support you to own your shit and grow up (release childhood patterns) so that you feel empowered, authentic and mature in your relationships.
* Experiential component: Shadow Work Practices to take back projections and integrate your shadows into wholeness, maturity and genuine personal power.
WEEK SIX: Embracing Healthy Boundaries for Authentic Relationships
* Teaching component: We will cover the importance of boundaries in secure relating and how lack of boundaries actually inhibits true intimacy. You'll learn how to identify, build and maintain boundaries – emotional, physical, energetic & sexual boundaries.
* Experiential component: finding your healthy boundaries, embodying them and expressing them with confidence.
WEEK SEVEN: Getting Your Needs Met and Owning Your Worth
*Teaching component: We'll cover the importance of knowing and owning your needs and worth in a relationship. Explore what blocks you from embracing both of these essential components of secure attachment. Breaking the patterns of undervaluing yourself and over-giving in relationships, or pulling right back and isolating yourself from the world.
* Experiential component: practices to get clear on your needs in a relationship (sexually, emotionally, mentally, physically) and shift barriers to your needs being met.
WEEK EIGHT: Communication
*Teaching component: Important foundations of healthy communication, how to express yourself authentically and ask for what you need, and set boundaries with clarity.
What doesn't work and what to do instead? Tips for communicating with an avoidant or an anxious partner. How to listen (this is often as big a challenge as communication for people).
* Experiential component: communicating from a space of empowerment, vulnerability and authenticity
WEEK NINE: Receptivity and Openness to Love
*Teaching component: Understand what blocks you from a receptive, open heart. Navigating a closed/guarded heart. Move beyond the patterns of emotional unavailability into opening your heart to loving others and letting yourself be loved.
* Experiential component: Learn to receive and be open to reciprocity, love, support, consistency and emotional availability in relationships. Stepping towards the kind of relationship you deeply desire - whether it's here already and needs a little TLC & transformation, or you're ready to call it in!
