Human Givens Therapy

Posted by kevanowen on November 21, 2017 at 6:40 PM

Human Givens * Therapy is a form of Brief Solution-Oriented Counselling and Psychotherapy focusing on the human needs and resources that form the basis of emotional health and clear thinking. At its heart is the recognition that emotional health is dependent upon the ability to meet basic emotional needs which act as nutrition for the mind.

​Originally developed by psychologist Joe Griffin and psychotherapist Ivan Tyrrell in the 1990's, the Human Givens Approach has a well-documented evidence base. The Human Givens Institute Register is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

​The Human Givens approach to counselling emphasis the importance of the therapist - client relationship and of identifying clear therapeutic objectives which can then be addressed pragmatically. It combines psychological knowledge with proven therapeutic techniques to relieve emotional distress quickly. It also utilities relaxation and guided imagery.

It was over ten years ago in 2007 that I began to use these principles in my private therapy practice in Chorlton, having in the previous three years undertaken the rigorous training and completed the Human Givens Diploma. The knowledge and experience gained has been invaluable. Combining sound psychological principles with proven therapeutic techniques the Human Givens approach relieves emotional distress quickly.
