New mental health podcast series - coming soon
We’re excited to announce that we’re about to start recording a brand-new series of our mental health podcast, Ask the Expert - and our first guest will be HG co-founder, Joe Griffin. Joe will be exploring sleep and dreaming – the profound effects they have on our mental health and wellbeing, how the HG approach works with them, and how he came to develop his ground-breaking insights. We’ll let you know as soon as the podcast is available.
Please do get involved. We'll be inviting questions as each new topic is announced - and if there is a particular subject you’d like to see covered in this series, or you would like to share details of an inspirational speaker in our field (from a human givens background or otherwise) who you feel others would find interesting too, please do get in touch and let us know.
You can listen to the first Ask the Expert series here. Each podcast gives you the opportunity to hear a human givens professional sharing fascinating insights and effective strategies from the point of view of their particular area of expertise. Topics include self-care, domestic violence, antidepressants, the mind-body connection, children's behaviour, using the HG approach in the classroom, self-harm, social isolation and more.
