Ideal for career development, our diploma course is made up of three stages.
You can apply for the Diploma whenever you feel ready, but we always recommend you take several of the short courses that make up Part 1 before doing so, to make sure that our training is right for you.
Passing the course at Practitioner Level (Part 3), enables you to practice as a fully-qualified human givens practitioner and be included on the HGI’s Professional Register of HG therapists, which is accredited in the UK by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA).

Part 2 allows students to gain further in-depth knowledge about the human givens approach and how best to subtly combine the knowledge and range of skills taught on our diploma-linked online courses and in-person workshops. During these two weeks, observation skills, clinical understanding and therapeutic ability are also tested for.
How long will it take?
Completing the full diploma programme to practitioner level typically takes up to two years. People with natural ability and aptitude often find they progress quickly through the course, but anyone who feels they need more time and experience can move through the course at a speed that suits them.
Who is it suitable for?
Because of the thorough grounding the diploma provides in essential psychological knowledge and therapeutic skills (always presented in clear, non-jargonistic language) it is suitable for anyone wishing to make a career change as well as those who want to increase and develop further the skills and knowledge they already have.
Students often find the course hugely helpful personally, as well as professionally, and thoroughly enjoy networking with the many like-minded people they meet during their training.
