'Ask The Expert' Podcast
Welcome to the human givens ‘Ask The Expert’ podcast series! Our new podcasts give you the opportunity to hear human givens professionals talking about mental health and emotional wellbeing from the point of view of their particular area of expertise.
Each podcast will discuss a different important mental health topic, both ones we feel should be openly discussed, and those in which our listeners have expressed an interest, in an effort to share and promote more widely effective tips and knowledge about emotional health and wellbeing.
