Dyadic Developmental Therapy

Dyadic Developmental Therapy (DDT) is an evidence-based approach rooted in attachment theory, which focuses on the crucial relationships between caregivers and their children. It recognises the impact of early experiences on emotional and relational development and seeks to create a secure and nurturing environment for healing. Our experienced therapists and psychologists at Bridges Therapy Centre offer DDT in London, designed to strengthen the bonds between caregivers and their children, helping them navigate the challenges of life together.

At its core, Dyadic Developmental Therapy aims to enhance the quality of the parent-child relationship by promoting attunement, empathy, and secure attachment. Our therapists utilise a combination of play therapy, reflective dialogue, and behaviour management techniques to address emotional and behavioural challenges.

By creating a safe and supportive space, we guide caregivers in understanding and responding to their child’s needs effectively.

Who Can Benefit from DDT?

DDT is particularly effective for individuals who have experienced past trauma, neglect, or other adverse early life experiences that may have disrupted the formation of secure attachments. Through DDT, families can learn to strengthen their communication, build trust, and foster emotional regulation. The therapy process encourages caregivers to explore their own attachment history, helping them break generational patterns and create a more secure foundation for their children.
