One of the main reasons for setting up Connected Lives was so we could support other organisations as they train in and run the attachment-based approaches which are so helpful to parents and partners. 

Our goal is to help support the development of a nationwide network of organisations and individual practitioners delivering Circle of Security Parenting©, Hold Me Tight©, Created for Connection© and any other approaches which are effective in helping parents and partners nurture stronger, healthier connections. 

That's the good news, the bad news is that we're not there yet. There are over 500 COS-P facilitators and additionally 30 organisations who run Hold Me Tight or Created for Connection groups. If you would like to find out more about becoming a Connected Lives hub or want to know if there's one near you then please contact us and we keep you updated. 


Happiness is love. Full stop.
