Reviews from our graduates

Since the first Human Givens Diploma course was run back in 2000, we’ve continually received great feedback from our students who appreciate the nurturing, supportive learning environment of the course. Here is just a sample:

“I am not exaggerating when I say that studying for the Human Givens Diploma remains the most significant piece of formal education I have ever undertaken, notwithstanding the fact that I hold a law degree and a Masters in social work”
Gavin Jinks, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, University of Derby

“It doesn’t feel like a course to train for ‘work’. It’s a blueprint for life, absolutely fascinating. HG has changed my life, given direction to my work and improved my effectiveness” 
Dawn Swan (Counsellor & Community Nutritionist)

“The best learning experience I have ever had – the two weeks of the HG Diploma course deepened and developed my understanding and appreciation of these profound concepts.” 
Adam Lake (GP)

“Amazing! The support, information, encouragement, practical skills and learning on Part 2 is outstanding. I can’t wait to start using the skills. ” 
Michelle Buckles

“This course was the most stimulating, thought-provoking and exciting learning experience I have ever had. As well as being continually stretching and enriching, it was always great fun. The teaching model of the diploma is rare in that it suits all different learning styles.” 
Dyslexia Consultant

“I learned more on this course than I did in 3 years training to become a mental health nurse”
Caroline Lee

“I can’t speak highly enough of the Human Givens Diploma course. It had all the elements to make it challenging, stretching, stimulating and, above all, thoroughly practical. I feel I have the skills to make a difference, whilst knowing I have the enjoyment to come of honing and developing them over time. An exciting prospect.”

“No other course of post-graduate training has influenced and changed my clinical practice more than studying for the Human Givens (HG) Diploma. It’s changed the way I think about, and approach, healthcare.”
Dr Grahame Brown

A truly enlightening experience and extremely well-taught course. It’s given me a wealth of ideas for useful applications of this knowledge as well as future career possibilities. Highly motivating!” 
Occupational Therapist

“A wonderful way of bringing together all the thinking and development around psychology and counselling over the past century into one practical, holistic approach.”
Career Guidance Counselling

“I have learnt more in ten days here, than two years of Higher Education. Pass or fail, I will take so much from this course, which is useful, practical, and understandable. The whole experience was very enjoyable.”
Senior Care Worker

“At a personal level, I gained much and I am aware that others on the course did too — this is in my experience, quite a unique benefit.”
Behaviour Consultant

“It’s been terrific — I feel privileged to have attended. The tutors are quite inspirational, both as speakers and therapists, and their level of knowledge and understanding is remarkable. The human givens approach is creative, eclectic, needs-led and applicable to a wide range of situations. It has inspired me to re-examine my own practice and, wherever possible, introduce it into my work.”
Educational Psychologist

“The most intensive, well-balanced, rewarding and enjoyable course structure I’ve attended in over 30 years of professional life. It is going to be immensely useful.”
Senior Police Officer

“As a practitioner psychologist and psychotherapist for 15 years I have attended a great deal of post-graduate training – rarely in that time have I encountered psychological theory or practice that has struck such a chord as these seminars and workshops have. I find this body of knowledge inspiring and am particularly impressed by the interweaving of good psychotherapeutic principles with underlying brain physiology and neuropsychology.”
Chartered Psychologist and Expert Witness

“Unquestionably the most enlightened way forward for all of us who want to contribute to helping improve the human condition.” 

“Excellent! Undoubtedly this course is an innovation in the stale field of therapy. Because of its emphasis on applying only what works, the human givens approach will remain at THE cutting edge.”
Registered Medical Nurse (Holder of the Queen’s Award for Nursing)

“After enduring insets and courses all my working life, doing the HG Diploma was amazing. The excellent balance of theory and practice, the sensitive and inspiring teaching and its structure combined to make it a truly memorable learning experience. If only more educators understood how to work in this way!”

“The impact on my work practice has been unbelievable — positive, safe and quick results which enable distressed people to engage in a good quality of life once again.”
Army Welfare Officer

“This has been an incredible journey — a thoroughly challenging but enjoyable one. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this motivated to learn and to apply my increasing knowledge and skills to my work.
