A journey of growth

The Humanist Approach

Humanistic psychology offers a way of understanding human development that is concerned with the realisation of individual and community potential.

At its base, humanistic psychology views human beings as fundamentally well and the process of living as fundamentally creative. The deepest truth within us, through which we can live fulfilling and socially nourishing lives, is masked by behaviours, thoughts and feelings which have unconsciously developed as a response to painful experiences. The humanistic approach invites people to step into their own potential, through active engagement with their own journey of growth.

A humanistic approach is holistic. It recognises the spiritual nature of human beings, and works to help people integrate all levels of their experience: body, thoughts, feelings, spirit and soul.
