All professional members of the HGI are subject to the Institute's Complaints Procedure.
If any member of the public or the Institute has a complaint, concern or grievance, they should follow the Institute's Complaints Procedure as laid out in our downloadable document, How the HGI deals with complaints.
Any complaint will be considered and assessed by by the HGI Registration and Complaints Committee (RPSC). The complainant and the HGI member concerned will be informed of the progress of the complaint and of the outcome. Please view our flow diagram which shows an overview of the full process.
If you wish to raise a complaint or register a concern about the service, practice or behaviour of the Human Givens Institute itself (as opposed to an individual human givens therapist), please notify the External Oversight Committee for Human Givens Therapy (EOCHGT), which oversees the activities of the HGI, supporting the good governance of the organisation.
You can contact them via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or send a letter to the following address:
FAO External Oversight Committee
Human Givens Institute
Please mark the envelope ‘Private and Confidential’.
To view the full EOCHGT's complaints procedure, please download the flow diagram here.
