Object Relation Theory

I am also drawn to object-related theory in my client work, especially Bowlby’s Attachment Theory, as I find it useful in understanding personality development and relationship issues in client work, and it also helps me to understand the therapeutic relationship with my client.

Clients who have the experience of repeated difficulty in relating to others may benefit from this approach in counselling.  Also, clients who experience crisis at different life stages are also likely to be helped by me as their counsellor, by integrating this theoretical approach into client work.
