Formalized in 2013 by Dr. Tapo Chimbganda, Privileged Space Principle is a relationship building model that promotes ideas and concepts from marriage and family counselling, psychotherapy, religion, philosophy, and contemporary social theory. The privileged space principle evolved from almost 2 decades of working with families, couples, and individuals who were struggling with personal and intimate relationships.

The privileged space principle is basically a way of creating a space of growth and development that is resilient and can overcome the barriers and challenges that usually result in breakdowns in relationships, conflict, and trauma. Through the privileged space principle people from all walks of life can build lasting and meaningful connections that advantage and advance all parties towards achieving their desired outcomes.
