NHS Practice Research Project
A partially HGF-funded study of HG efficacy within an NHS practice in Luton was carried out by Dr Gina Johnson, with the help of three HG therapists. The findings from this study were written up by an international research team and published in the British Psychological Society journal, ‘Psychology and Psychotherapy, Theory, Research and Practice’.
This robust example of a study using highest quality practice based evidence suggested that the HG therapy was very effective and very well accepted by the majority of clients. Furthermore, the results compared very favourably with the results from the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies pilot site data.
