|Choosing a psychotherapist|
There are hundreds of different counselling and psychotherapy models that people use and this is confusing, especially for vulnerable people seeking help. And it is no less confusing for GPs wishing to refer patients to an expert in dealing with emotional problems.
It has only recently been realised that effective counselling always depends on how attuned the counsellor is to the givens of human nature so, although most counsellors and psychotherapists are accredited by their various professional bodies, this is no guarantee of their effectiveness. By contrast human givens practitioners have been rigorously assessed for their effectiveness.
Human givens practitioners do not waste time just endlessly listening to you or attempting to dredge up real or imagined miserable memories from the past, since research shows this tends to confuse and upset vulnerable people.
Nor do they deal in time-wasting, prolonged voyages of 'self-discovery'. Instead they offer practical help that deals with mental and emotional distress in the here and now.
They are trained by Human Givens College whose practical, down-to-earth brief psychotherapy training courses give an essential knowledge base, whilst shining new light on key problem areas and teaching students the most effective therapeutic techniques for resolving emotional distress (drawn from a wide range of proven approaches, including CBT and others approved by NICE).
This ensures that all qualified HG practitioners have a sound body of knowledge and the skills necessary to help people quickly with a wide variety of emotional and behavioural difficulties.
HG practitioners on the official HGI register are also fully accredited members of the Human Givens Institute, which means the Institute monitors their professional conduct and continuing personal development, that they have agreed to abide by its ethics policy, its complaints procedure and that they have full public liability insurance.
