How to join
If you would like to become an Associate Member of the HGI, please call our office on +44 (0)1323 811662 (Mon-Fri 9.00am–5.30pm GMT) with your name, address and credit/debit card details.
Alternatively, you can print out and send us a completed Associate Members' Application Form, which allows you to pay by card, UK cheque or standing order. You can post the form to us at:
The Human Givens Institute
Or email it to: [email protected]
The annual fee for Associate Members (previously known as HGI Members) is £60.00 for UK residents and £68.00 for those living overseas (additional fee covers extra postage costs).
All successful graduates of the Human Givens Diploma are invited to join the Institute as a Graduate Member. For more information, including how to join, click here.
All HG.Dip. graduates who have then gone on to successfully pass the Post Graduate Practitioner's Assessment (Part III) of the Human Givens Diploma course (and are therefore fully-qualified human givens therapists) are invited to upgrade to, or join the Institute as, a Registered Member. For more information, including how to join, click here.
All applications received will be acknowledged and processed as soon as possible. Once your application has been processed you will receive your first copy of the Human Givens journal, your login details for the HGI members area, and your HGI and ETSI membership certificates.
If you have applied for membership before, or been elected and either resigned or allowed that membership to lapse, please let us know in a covering note when reapplying for membership. An earlier application/membership will not adversely affect a new application, but may enable the Institute to locate previous information and possibly speed up the processing of your new application.
Please also see: Renewing your membership
Change of Address
If you change your name or address please let the Institute know at once so that you will continue to receive your copies of the journal, newsletter and any other relevant information.
If you live outside the UK, £8 is added to your basic membership fee to cover additional postage costs.
If you would like any further information, please don't hesitate to contact the Institute on: Tel: +44 (0)1323 811662 or via email at: [email protected]
