  • Agree to uphold the HGI's ethical standards

Lapsed Members

For the benefit of the public, our Complete Register listing also allows you to view Registered HGI Members from the last two years who are no longer in private practice, for whatever reason, or whose membership has been cancelled or has lapsed.

Trainee therapists

When human givens therapists are working towards full qualification (HG.Dip.P.) they can, on successful completion of the HG Diploma, become Graduate Members of the HGI. This means that they can practise as a Trainee Status therapist (or counsellor) under supervision, in accordance with the Institute’s supervision policy, and are subject to the HGI’s ethics code and complaints procedure. They are not, however, yet eligible to appear on the HGI's official register of fully-qualified HG practioners.

Graduate Members in private practice must always make it clear that they are working towards their final Practitioner Qualification (which must be completed within two years of when they were awarded the HG Diploma).

The HGI requests that all trainee HG therapists and counsellors make their status clear and always use the designatory letters and description: "HG.Dip.P (Trainee)" after their name.
