Human Givens Diploma Course

The Human Givens approach to counseling and psychotherapy gives you a simple and powerful way to help people in a short space of time. The material in the course has a broad reach and is logical, straightforward and concurrent with modern neuroscience – making it easy to learn and use with clients from the very first seminar.”
— Thomas Lawrence, Graceful-Change.co.uk, Acupuncturist, Scotland
The Human Givens approach is based on sound principles of what is required for good mental functioning. It provides a sound structure for evaluating any presenting problem and doing good therapy. It has instilled a sense of confidence in me that I can build rapport quickly with any client, and that I have the tools to help them feel better from the very first session. Lastly, it makes the practice of doing therapy fun and rewarding.
— Martin Dunlea, Therapist, Ireland
The Human Givens is truly remarkable. It can do in one or two sessions what other therapies take months and even years to try to achieve. It aligns itself with Solution Focus Brief Therapy, but is so much more. As a practitioner of SFBT I was intrigued, so attended my first session in London on Depression.

I had always felt that SFBT could not be bettered for results, however, here was this therapy that not only included SFBT, but had other powerful elements such as Deep Relaxation, important information on sleep and dreaming and the all powerful Nine Emotional Needs information. Not to forget the Rewind Technique, capable of ridding people of the most awful traumas in one session.

I have been a California licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for 30 years. I have found Human Givens books, on-line courses, and in-person trainings to be extremely valuable; a seamless integration of best practices, current research, and creative thinking. Going through the Certification training has recharged my enthusiasm to practice and improved my mental health significantly.
