Our Approach



The basis of our work draws from the Human Givens approach to therapy and counseling. Whatever our cultural background, we are all born with essential physical and emotional needs and the innate resources (tools, or guidance systems) to meet these needs. It is because these needs and resources are incorporated into our very biology that they have become known as the human “givens”.
When our innate emotional needs are not being met, or when our resources are misused, or not used at all, we suffer considerable distress, and so can those around us.

Fundamental Emotional Needs:
Resources Nature Give Us To Meet This Needs:

Our fundamental emotional needs are:

  • Security – safe territory and an environment, which allows us to develop fully.
  • Attention (to give and receive it) – a form of nutrition.
  • Sense of autonomy and control – having the volition to make responsible choices.
  • Being emotionally connected to others.
  • Feeling part of a wider community.
  • Friendship, intimacy – to know that at least one other person accepts us totally for who we are.
  • Privacy- opportunity to reflect and consolidate our experiences.
  • Sense of status within social groupings.
  • Sense of competence and achievement (from which comes self-esteem)
  • Meaning and purpose – which come from being stretched in what we do and think.

The resources nature gives us to help us meet these needs include:

  • The ability to develop complex, long term-memory, which enables us to add to our innate knowledge and learn.
  • The ability to build rapport, empathize and connect with others.
  • Imagination, which enables us to focus our attention away from our emotions, use language and problem solve more creatively and objectively.
  • Conscious, rational minds that can check out emotions, question, analyze and plan.
  • The ability to “know” – that is, understand the world unconsciously through metaphorical pattern matching.
  • An observing self – that part of us that can step back, be more objective and be aware of itself as a unique centre of awareness, apart from intellect, emotion and conditioning.
  • A dreaming brain that preserves the integrity of our genetic inheritance every night by metaphorically defusing expectations held in the autonomic arousal system because they haven’t been acted out.
