About the Register
The psychotherapists and counsellors listed on the HGI's official register are all Registered Members of the Institute who have successfully passed the Human Givens Diploma at practitioner level (HG.Dip.P.).
They are therefore trained in dealing effectively, and as quickly as possible, with all major forms of distress, including anxiety and anger disorders, depression, stress, phobias, addiction, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and relationship problems.
The register has been accredited in the UK by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA), which also accredits BACP, the National Counselling Society, UKCP. and others.
This mark of quality assures the general public, service commissioners and employers that human givens practitioners belong to a register vetted and approved by an independent statutory body. (Read more)
The complete register list shows all fully-qualified HG therapists and counsellors who are, or have been, in practice and/or Registered Members of the HGI during the last 2 years, with details of their current status.

The HGI requires that all trainee HG therapists and counsellors make their status clear and always use the designatory letters and description: "HG.Dip.P (Trainee)" after their name.
When human givens therapists are working towards full qualification (HG.Dip.P.), on successful completion of the HG Diploma, they become Graduate Members of the HGI. This means that they can practise as a Trainee Status therapist (or counsellor) under supervision, in accordance with the Institute’s supervision policy, and are subject to the HGI’s ethics code and complaints procedure. They are not, however, yet eligible to appear on the HGI's official register of fully-qualified HG practitioners.
Graduate Members in private practice must always make it clear that they are working towards their final Practitioner Qualification (which must be completed within two years of when they were awarded the HG Diploma) and always describe themselves as a Trainee HG therapist, practitioner or counsellor.
Please Note: some of our Registered Members also appear on additional psychotherapy or counselling registers.
The NHS has recently updated their employment information, and now seeks counsellors who are on an Accredited Register, such as the HGI's.
NHS Choices states that "reputable therapists will be registered with a professional organisation that's been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) – this means they have met the PSA's required professional standards to practice" and NHS Employers lists the Human Givens Institute (HGI) as a provider of counselling services under details of the use and benefits of Accredited Registers, view here.
Health Education England, on the NHS Health Careers website, also highlights the importance of Accredited Registers under 'Entry Requirements and Training' and lists the Human Givens Institute.
