Part Three

Practitioner's Assessment:

In addition to the continuous assessment of students by the trainers during Part 2, a practical assessment is offered when the student is ready. This is the final requirement for becoming a fully-qualified human givens practitioner.

To complete Part 3 students are required to submit films of two counselling/therapy sessions with clients. These are then independently assessed for the quality of work.

PSA accredited Register of therapistsThe DVDs must be accompanied by clear case notes and a comprehensive written explanation of why students used the techniques they did. These combined elements are both assessed and marked. In addition, students are required to supply written professional references and undergo a minimum of three hours of supervision with an HGI-accredited HG supervisor.

Passing this qualification enables you to practise as a fully-qualified human givens (HG) psychotherapist or counsellor.

You are also then eligble to join the Human Givens Institute (HGI) as a Registered Member, which includes entry on the HGI's Professional Register of Human Givens Practitioners, which is independently accredited in the UK by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA).

Accreditation to Practice:

The college and Human Givens Institute continually receive enquiries, from all over the country and increasingly abroad, from people looking for fully-qualified, accredited psychotherapists and counsellors working from the human givens approach.

Anyone who has successfully completed and passed the post-graduate practitioner level Part 3 of the Human Givens Diploma (or the psychotherapeutic practice element of Module 4 of Nottingham Trent University's MA in Human Givens Psychotherapy) can be accredited to practice as a fully-qualified Human Givens Psychotherapist by fulfilling the requirements of Registered Membership of the Human Givens Institute.

Registered HGI Members are then entered onto its online register of human givens therapists to receive referrals. This professional register is independently accredited in the UK by the Professional Standards Authority.
