It was twenty years ago in 1997 that the psychologist Joe Griffin and the psychotherapist Ivan Tyrrell coined the term “Human Givens” to describe those aspects of human nature that are at the heart of their holistic approach to well-being. Since then literally 10,000s of people worldwide have been helped by the approach.
And it was 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 and has a well-documented evidence base.
