Joy's background is in community development and she has worked with individuals and groups all her adult life. Over the years she has become fascinated with brain development and how our minds work - particularly how people can recover from trauma. When she came across the Human Givens approach some years ago she found it to be a powerful way of working that could help people overcome all sorts of barriers in their lives, take back control and move towards a life that works. This led to her training as a Human Givens therapist. Since completing her Human Givens Diploma she has seen first-hand how quick and effective this approach can be.
