Your Therapist

Kevan Owen HGdipP

A fully qualified Human Givens Practitioner with a Higher Diploma in Psychotherapy from Nottingham Trent University.

Effective, fast and practical help.

As a human givens therapist I will work with you by helping you to identify any unmet emotional needs and empower you to meet them by creatively activating your own natural resources in new ways.

Using a wide variety of up-to-date, proven psychological methods and techniques focused on problem solving and developing new life skills you will soon start to see beneficial changes.

My aim is to help you move on with your life as quickly as possible.

I also work in a client-directed outcome informed way which means that I measure progress at every session and tailor the therapy to the unique needs and characteristics of each individual.

The Human Givens approach represents a toolbox of skills and resources for helping anyone to live a more fulfilled life.

“I am still amazed at how I feel!  I am taking on tasks that previously would have put me into a scared state – and I have no problem completing them. I feel happy, lighthearted and carefree!  How about that?  First time in years.  I didn’t think it possible. I’ve valued your gentle approach, being listened too on such deep topics and your way of ‘being’ in a session. I am eternally grateful”. (Client who had suffered from lifelong feelings of low self-worth).
