Secure Base Philosophy

Doug Osborne and Tony Evans set up Secure Base to deliver Emotional Self-Regulation training to the Fire and Rescue Service who work with adults and young people who set fires.

Emotional Self- Regulation (ESR) means being properly able to regulate ones’ emotions – turn them up or down and express them in a socially appropriate way
