"We aim to cultivate a climate of inclusion, an environment where all can feel safe, valued, cared for, and given an opportunity to form meaningful connections with each other. In all facets of our work we strive to embody what we hope for the world - a just, loving humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully - where people can embrace their own basic universal attachment needs without fear of persecution as a result of religion, ethic or national origin, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, class, mental health, physical character or disability. These values are inherent in the attachment science and humanistic approach to intervention that all our work is based on.
Specifically, humanistic approaches such as EFT are collaborative and respectful. We create a safe place for people and treat them as persons not problems or types. Our approach is non-pathologizing in practice. Our values are inclusive and egalitarian while viewing human connection as sacred - something to be honored and cultivated. Our scientific and theoretical base outlines key universal emotions, emotional and attachment, while respecting individual differences."
