Feel Resourced.
Feel Fulfilled.
Simply Thrive.

Do you have that niggling feeling that something is missing?

Most people today have a niggling feeling deep within them. A feeling that this isn’t ‘enough,’ a feeling of emptiness, of exhaustion, the feeling that something is missing, that there must be more to life than this.

Most of us believe that if we work hard, if we can just get the next…promotion, house, car, bonus, relationship, vacation…we’ll finally get ‘there.’

The place we’ve been striving for. The place that feels ‘enough,’ ‘resourced,’ ‘happy,’ or ‘fulfilling.’

The problem is that what we’re seeking doesn’t exist ‘there.

But it does exist.

And the path to discovering it lies understanding the 12 simple needs that each and every person has, and learning how to simply, quickly and easily meet them for yourself in ways that nourish and support your being, feed your heart and fill your soul.

How can The Universal Needs help?


When we learn how to meet our own needs fully, we get to finally experience life from a place of feeling resourced and fulfilled, rather than from the constant, empty, desperate search for something to fill the void. Learning how to meet your own needs is like learning how to stoke the fire of your own soul.


Need always trumps love, and unmet needs are the source of the vast majority of relationship problems. By learning how to fulfil our own needs we can come to our relationships fully resourced and full of love, passion and desire to connect, share and experience the richness of life with the one we love.


By meeting our own needs we tap into an energy source which helps us to become more productive and effective at everything we do. When we apply these techniques in the workplace we are able to create teams that are more resourced and work better together, to serve clients at a deeper level and to achieve more without burning out.

Creator and Founder

Claire Brummell has spent years helping clients all over the world to create the outcomes they both want AND need in Life, Love and Business.

Claire is an internationally acclaimed coach, mentor, trainer and public speaker who combines her skills in a diverse range of disciplines with unique and powerful processes that she has personally created and developed to help her clients to design and create the outcomes they are looking for.

Claire understands that most people seem to be searching for something; How to feel more of this, or less of that. Through her own unique transformational methodology she helps you to put the power to create a deeply fulfilling life right back into the palm of your hands.

So what are The Universal Needs?

The Universal Needs Program is a process and practice through which you can become aware of exactly what you need to feel resourced and fulfilled in your life. The program also helps you discover why you have not previously had your needs met in ways that effectively and consistently support you and fill you up, and most importantly provides you with the understanding of how to simply, quickly and easily meet these needs for yourself. This helps you empower yourself to come to everything in your life from a place of feeling more resourced, more emotionally supported, more whole, more energised & more alive.

This program is incredibly powerful for people who are struggling to create a life that meets their needs and fills them up. It has also been designed to provide answers for the person who on paper has everything they’ve always thought they wanted and believed would make them happy. The person who has the career/business, money, relationship, house, car, family, lifestyle or ’success’ etc., and yet still find themselves feeling a sense of emptiness and that something is missing in their lives, with no idea what that might be.

No longer will you need to search for the something or someone who ‘completes you.’ You’ll discover that you already have access to what you need to feel resourced, whole and fulfilled, so life instead becomes about sharing the joy, love, passion, contentment and fulfilment you already feel with others.

Our clients have found that through using the program they have been able to create significant shifts for themselves in every area of life including self-confidence & self worth, relationships, business and career.

This program provides a new, innovative and powerful process to help individuals to support, develop, enhance and improve their own lives in simple, quick, easy, sustainable ways.

The benefits of this transformational process are wide and far-reaching, from creating confidence, empowerment and fulfilment for you personally, on to practical applications in learning, education and business. It can also be used powerfully in relationship transformation, healing family dynamics and parenting, as well support with specific circumstances like stress, depression and addictive tendencies.

It is a simple process that can be implemented with ease to provide shifts that are both rapid and lasting.

We have had clients share with us that in decades of personal growth and development they have never experienced anything remotely like this that has provided the profound levels of transformation they have experienced in such simple and easy ways in a short space of time.

What are people saying about the Universal Needs?

I work in personal development and I have never come across something this comprehensive, this deep, that can have the ongoing impact it does.

It is the easy habit that can make you less anxious, more energised, have better relationships, the list goes on.

Understanding your needs and knowing how to meet them can create a fundamentally richer life.

I don't know how she did it, but I'm still doing the needs practice after 2 months, I have not skipped a day!

I cannot recall another habit which I have stuck with for two months straight, so it's really working!

It's giving me more peace of mind, more focus, more freedom and more self-confidence.


What Claire does is really REALLY simple, but super powerful, as it how she does it.

She provides really practical guidance that you can take to every part of your life. I feel like I've stepped back into my power.

I've learned that there is a different way - it IS possible to have it all.

Going through The Universal Needs Process is like peeling an onion. You get through one layer, to the next, to the next, until you get to the heart and the root cause. It’s only when you get to the root cause that you can fix all the other layers. This program gives you the understanding, coping skills and tools to get to the root of what’s going on, and to be able to address it in a healthy way.

The experience was enlightening. This is a positive way to introspect and think about where we are and how we live, I really enjoyed the process and would highly recommend it.

Claire, I think you’re awesome. I love the passion you have, how it comes through and how you interact with the people on the program. I really enjoyed working with you!

The Universal Needs Process is just amazing, I feel an amazing shift.

Having the practice as a base as you go through your day, knowing that it’s there makes such a difference.

Especially being at work and being in situations that are challenging, the process has acted like a little guidepost along the way, it’s so empowering.

Thank you so much Claire!


I have been working with The Universal Needs practice for a few months now and am delighted with the results that I am getting.

By focusing on recognising what my own needs are and by finding ways to consistently meet those by myself and for myself each day has provided me with an inner calm and strength that I haven’t felt for some years, perhaps even ever.

Claire, thank you for putting the course together and sharing it with the world. I hope that everyone who has the slightest sense of being drawn to exploring this work just jumps on board and gives themselves this gift. Trust me, in my opinion, it’s well worth the investment.


Integrating this process into my life changed every part of it, especially the quality of people I attracted into my life.

When we walk about being 'whole' before getting into a relationship, this is the secret.

This program is a must.

I've taken this course and highly recommend it!

Potent, deceptively simple and incredibly powerful.

My life has changed. AMAZING things have been happening with my relationships.

For two years I've been separated from my ex, and he's no longer my ex anymore! Because I actually understand him and his needs, and now our relationship is incredible.

I'm calmer, more at peace, everything is just simple and easier. I cannot recommend this program highly enough.

Why we need more than Maslow in a global crisis…

A week or two ago, a friend of mine shared this annotated version of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs in the free ’Nourish Your Needs’ Facebook group and asked me what I thought about it. My first response was that, yes, on a VERY superficial level, I did agree with annotations on the image. My second […]
