About the college 2

Human Givens College has been providing training in the best ways to treat mental health and behavioural problems for over twenty years…

As well as giving you essential, up-to-date psychological knowledge and proven practical skills, our down-to-earth training has introduced new research and insights into the causes and drivers of common conditions such as depression, addiction, anxiety disorders, trauma and psychosis which, when combined with the human givens framework for mental health and wellbeing, are revolutionising effective treatment.

A brilliant, pragmatic approach which has made an enormous difference in my ability to help people.

As well as giving you essential psychological knowledge and proven practical skills, our down-to-earth training has introduced new research and insights into the causes and drivers of common conditions such as depression, addiction, anxiety disorders, trauma and psychosis which, when combined with the human givens framework for mental health and wellbeing, are revolutionising effective treatment.

Cost-effective, evidence-based training

Over 20,000 people (including, psychologists, psychotherapists, doctors, counsellors, social workers, teachers, police, clergy, youth workers, life coaches, HR managers and interested members of the public) have attended our seminars and workshops around the UK and in Ireland, and more recently in the USA, or trained with us online.

As a result of their human givens psychotherapy training, they now help people overcome addiction, depression, anxiety, PTSD, phobias, OCD, anger, stress and even psychosis much more easily and effectively – reducing suffering and costs.

Suitable for all

We deliberately present all the information in our courses in clear, jargon free language so as many people can benefit as possible.

So as well as providing perfect CPD training for a wide range of professions (you receive a CPD certificate for each course completed) – they are just as suitable for the interested general public or anyone wishing to embark on a career in psychotherapy or counselling.

Thoroughly worthwhile, so much was covered.

Now you can benefit too

Our online courses give you the opportunity to ‘attend’ our ground-breaking training from anywhere in the world, at any time – saving you money and helping make your work easier and more effective.

Our intention is to make available online as many of our seminars and workshops as possible. These won’t replace our directly taught courses, but it means more people can benefit from our clear no-nonsense training and gain access to the high quality, practical information it provides.

Diploma-linked courses

7 of our online courses count towards Part I of the highly regarded Human Givens Diploma – so by taking one of these, you could be on your way to gaining this qualification. In fact, we often recommend to people interested in taking the Diploma that they start with one or two of the Diploma-linked online courses to see if our training is for them.

The psychological knowledge and therapeutic skills taught on the Diploma are suitable for a wide range of applications and students go on to use them in lots of different fields, not only psychotherapy and counselling.
