Training and online courses
All human givens therapists and practitioners completed their training with Human Givens College (or its forerunner MindFields College), who have been providing training in the best ways to treat mental health and behavioural problems for over twenty years.
As well as giving you essential psychological knowledge and proven practical skills, the College's down-to-earth UK-based courses and online courses on a wide range of subjects has introduced new research and insights into the causes and drivers of common conditions such as depression, addiction, anxiety disorders, trauma and psychosis which, when combined with the human givens framework for mental health, are revolutionising effective treatment.
Cost-effective, evidence-based training
Over 12,000 people (including, psychologists, psychotherapists, doctors, counsellors, social workers, teachers, police, clergy, youth workers and interested members of the public) have attended HG courses, seminars and workshops around the UK – and many people travel from overseas to attend.
As a result of their human givens psychotherapy training, HG graduates can help people overcome addiction, depression, anxiety, PTSD, phobias, OCD, anger, stress and even psychosis much more easily and effectively – reducing suffering and costs.
Online training – now even more people can benefit
With the launch of the College's online training programme, you can 'attend' ground-breaking HG courses – such as Joe Griffin's seminal How to make counselling more effective or Ivan Tyrrell's From Stress to Psychosis: How to prevent mental illness – from anywhere in the world, at any time – saving you money and helping make your work easier and more effective.

Suitable for all
All of the HG courses are presented in clear language (English) without jargon, so as well as being perfect for CPD training (people receive a certificate on successful completion of each course) for a wide range of professions, they are just as suitable for the interested general public or anyone wishing to embark on a career in psychotherapy or counselling.
