Human Givens Therapy

Dr Andrew Morrice

I have been a GP for 20 years, and for 15 of those years I have been incorporating the ideas and techniques from the Human Givens approach into my work with patients.  I am available for Human Givens therapy in Chilcompton Surgery, Somerset, BA3 4XH
(or in Wells if you cannot travel to Chilcompton).

This practical approach to therapy can help with:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety and Phobias
  • Depression
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Anger
  • Addictions and other unwanted habits

Drawing on my background in General Practice we can also address:

  • Lifestyle Change including Weight Loss
  • Pain
  • Medically Unexplained Symptoms

Most people prefer to feel better as quickly as possible, and find solutions that strengthen their own resources.  Human Givens (HG) therapy makes this possible in a wide range of situations without drugs or repeated appointments over months or years.  The HG approach has been designed to help you get on with leading a life that works for you, spending no more of your time being a patient or client than is really needed.  It is unusual for HG treatments for a specific mental health problem to take more than 6 sessions and many patients have made a recovery after 2 to 4 sessions.

To learn more about the HG approach please visit the HGI website.

Here you will find details of how HG therapy is regulated, standards of practice and conduct, along with a register of Human Givens Therapists in your area.

Scope of Treatment

It is important to appreciate that whilst drawing on my medical experience to help patients seeing me for Human Givens Therapy, these sessions are not medical consultations as such.  They cannot include new diagnosis of medical problems, or treatments that require a registration as a doctor, such as prescriptions. For these aspects of care of your GP or specialists are the appropriate people to speak to.
