    Testimonials

    Andrew definitely has a gift, to see to the core of issues and then very quickly put a plan into place in order to resolve them promptly and without the usual reliving of events.   Robert

     

    What a gift Andrew has.  Sure, Human Givens is the wrapper around his service, but it is he that makes the difference.  Dylan

     

     

    He explained that Human Givens was effective and usually four sessions was all that was required. Yeah right I thought. Well, Andrew was right.  Corrie

      Evidence for my Human Givens approach

      In 2011 The British Psychological Society’s leading peer-reviewed journal, Psychology and Psychotherapy: Theory, Research and Practice published a 12-month evaluation of the Human Givens approach in primary care at a general medical practice.
      The result showed that more than three out of four patients were either symptom-free or reliably changed result of HG therapy*. This was accomplished in an average of only 3.6 sessions, significantly all the recovery rate published for the UK government’s flagship IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) programme, which uses therapists trained in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

      My NINE COUNSELLING PRINCIPLES OF HUMAN GIVENS

      1. Meeting essential needs is a prerequisite for emotional health. We will normally undertake a needs audit – how well are your needs being met now?

      2. Human beings are problem solving creatures. Achievable, concrete and relevant goal setting is an essential prerequisite for you to change.

      3. High emotional arousal makes us all stupid and learning takes place when calm. We will work to enhance emotional intelligence – to increase your awareness and to communicate understanding of the sources of stress. To learn tools and methods for stress alleviation and to work with you when you are relaxed.

      4. Often trauma or trauma like symptoms will be at the root of emotional distress. Human Givens practitioners are trained in the Rewind technique which quickly removes most traumatic experiences from the emotional brain.

      5. Imagination is the main engine for improved performance. Guided imagery and visualisation will be a powerful aid to motivate and rehearse helpful change.

      6. Creativity is accessed in a relaxed state of flow. You can respond well to tailor made methods that allow access to your creative right brain so that it will work harmoniously with the logical and ordered left brain.

      7. The brain understands and communicates by patterns (metaphors) and seeks to complete these in the environment. Our conversations are built around metaphor/story identification and construction that will make sense on all levels.

      8. Our capacities and resources are always greater than we think. We will work at all times to identify and refocus or to restore and amplify your resources, which in most cases will be accessible from your past memories and experiences.

      9. For all of us, emotions precede and drive thoughts and actions. There are a range of methods that can be used and which have as their objective the creation of appropriate emotional tags to the events and circumstances that you are likely to be experiencing.
