The Tidal Architects
In developing the philosophical and practice base of the
Tidal Model Poppy Buchanan-Barker
and Phil Barker have
upon their extensive experience of health and social care;
psychotherapy and counselling.
They have had the opportunity to work with many
people from different societies and cultures around the
world. What have they learned?
"Almost everyone we have met appear to have the same
worries, joys, hopes and dreams in their lives. They might
express them differently and use different words but, boil
it down, and it is just the same".
"Almost everyone wants
someone to listen to them. Everybody wants a 'good hearing'".
"There is nothing new in human caring.
Being human is age-old. Sitting down with someone, talking
and listening, are the starting points of any relationship.
There are no new ways to do this - only different ways".
