Part 1 – 17 courses and home study

If you’ve done some of our training already, you could be on your way to completing the first part of the Human Givens Diploma…

The first stage of the Human Givens Diploma is made up of 8 online courses and 9 attended workshops, plus some additional home study.

You can start Part 1 whenever you like – there is no application process for this stage of the Diploma, which has been designed to be as flexible as possible so you can fit it in around your other commitments and progress at a pace that suits you.

Part 1 Diploma-linked Courses

We recommend you take at least a couple of the following courses, including 1 in-person workshop, before committing to the whole Diploma, to make sure our training is right for you.  They are all stand-alone accredited CPD courses, taught by highly experienced tutors – you will learn plenty on each one that you can use immediately in your work, or will find personally beneficial.

To build on the information and skills covered, it is helpful to start in the order shown on ‘Your Diploma Journey’ – but we appreciate this isn’t always possible. Please do contact us if you’d like any advice.

The Diploma-linked workshops are held throughout the year in London, Bristol and Leeds – you can complete several at once as they are run in blocks of training days.  There is no need to apply to take Part 1, but you must have completed all of the online and attended courses by the time you attend Part 2.

Please note: it is essential to attend the Guided Imagery and Visualisation workshop (and ideally Therapeutic Language too) before you attend the Rewind Technique workshop.

Our Part 1 attended courses are run throughout the year in London, Bristol and Leeds in blocks of training days, so you can attend several workshops at once.  You then have time to absorb the knowledge, do additional background reading and practice the skills before attending your next block of training.

Check out our Fast Track page to view the blocks of courses and easily add several workshops to your basket at once.

Alternatively, use the drop down and date filters on the courses page to plan your Part 1, or call our friendly team on +44 (0)1323 811690 – they will be happy to talk through your Diploma journey with you.

Please note:  Some courses fill up quickly, so it’s a good idea to book as soon as you can to get all the dates together that you’d like.

Home study

There is a Reading List for the Diploma which you will need to read and absorb before attending Part 2. It is a good idea to start this while you work your way through Part 1 to help you absorb the information.  (Before you attend Part 2, you will also be sent the Diploma Manual to read.)

You are also encouraged to practice the various new skills you are learning on Part 1 as often as possible so you can derive the most benefit from Part 2.


The cost of Part 1 of the Human Givens Diploma is the total price paid for taking the above 17 diploma-linked courses (8 online and 9 attended).

The final amount you pay, however, will depend on how you work through the course and whether you take advantage of our various special offers – the maximum amount you will pay for the courses on Part 1 is £3,384.

Don’t forget: you can save money by taking advantage of our multiple bookings discount – Save 10% when you book 5 or more attended courses at once – and 25% off in our Flash Sale on the online courses when you buy all 8 together!
