From time to time concerns about aspects of registered therapist’s practice may come to the attention of the Registration and Professional Standards Committee in such a way that the normal complaints process is not appropriate. For example, a client may initiate a complaint and subsequently withdraw it for personal reasons, whilst having raised a concern that merits further investigation. The Human Givens Institute may also receive an anonymous but credible notification of concern about some aspect of a therapist’s practice or their dealings with the public.
In such cases the RPSC may decide that the concern is serious enough to warrant some investigation. The investigation will be carried out by one of the Co-chairs and will typically involve contacting the therapist in question and discussing the concern. If sufficient grounds are established to substantiate the concern about the professional conduct of the therapist, the Co-chair may, for example, require the therapist to address learning points through supervision and provide written evidence of this in the form of a supervision record. The Co-chairs will reserve the power to take more stringent action if there is a credible risk of harm to the public or to the registered therapist themselves.
