The stages of qualification and registration as a human givens therapist
Part One of the HG Diploma
You can therefore attend one or more courses to make sure HG training is right for you before applying for the full Diploma course.
Part Two of the HG Diploma
For full details of the course requirements see: Part Two of the HG Diploma.
Once you have passed the examination at the end of the intensive two weeks' training you are permitted to use the title HG Dip.
However. please note: If you choose to practise privately in order to gain the experience needed for success at Part Three you must designate yourself as HG Dip. (Trainee).
This acts to inform clients that you have yet to demonstrate proficiency in the HG approach to the standard required by the Institute, but that you have demonstrated a good intellectual understanding of the approach. It also demonstrates that you are practising under supervision in accordance with the Institute’s supervision policy and that you are also subject to the HGI’s ethics code and complaints procedure.
Part Three of the HG Diploma
You must pass Part Two before taking Part Three of the HG Diploma. You have 24 months from the date you completed Part Two to make your submission for Part 3 (which consists of films of therapeutic practice, along with case notes etc) to the Human Givens College for assessment.
If you wish to take Part Three after the 24 months have passed, you will be required to either facilitate on the intensive two week diploma training or re-attend the following training days before being allowed to submit your films:
- Guided imagery & visualisation for therapeutic change
- The Fast Trauma (PTSD) and phobia cure
- The Therapeutic Power of Language – a practical brief therapy masterclass
Once you have passed Part Three you are permitted to use the title HG Dip P. This designates your competence to practise as an HG therapist. However, there remains a final stage (below) that is designed to provide the public with an assurance that you are also a person fit to practise.
Registration with the HGI
You can apply for registration with the Institute and appear on the public register of human givens therapists only when you have completed Part Three of the HG diploma.
Registration assesses applicants’ fitness to practise and requires a series of declarations that you meet the required standards. The register lists all HGI registrants. However, where registrants do not wish to take private clients or be otherwise available for public contact this can be stated on the website and contact details will be removed from their web page. This enables the HGI to display a complete record of registrants whilst respecting the wishes of therapists/practitioners to take indefinite time out for whatever reason.
