What is ReAttach?


ReAttach is developed and pioneered by Drs. Paula Weerkamp as a multi-modal intervention to support patients in dealing with complexities such as autism, trauma, and non-congenital brain damage.


Nowadays, ReAttach is used worldwide by a diversity of therapists for children and adults with central neurological problems, functional neurological disorders, oncological problems, psychosomatic complaints, (psycho) geriatric problems, language and speech disorders, and post-traumatic and acute stress complaints.


The power of ReAttach is that you do not have to talk about what you have experienced, what is bothering you, what you want to change, what you have to process. ReAttach uses voice, thinking tasks, and light rhythmic touch on the hands. It ensures that you can retrieve, register, and (re) place the correct information. The exercises create new brain connections that provide different insights and replace old patterns. ReAttach provides relaxation, overview, and a new perspective for growth.

ReAttach helps professionals to support their clients to:

Overcome developmental arrests in mental health problems 

Provides clinicians with a new technique that effectively helps clients with trauma and self-limiting beliefs 

Treat most emotional, psychological, developmental, behavioural and even physical challenges, optimize personal growth. Become the best version of themselves. 

Process information coherently with optimal mindset for learning 

Strengthen and enrich other therapeutic approaches including Non-Violent Resistance
