Human Givens Therapy

Dr Andrew Morrice

I have been a GP for 22 years, and for 17 of those years I have been using the Human Givens approach every day in my work with patients. 
I now offer Human Givens therapy in Chilcompton Surgery, Somerset, BA3 4XH
(or in Wells if you cannot travel to Chilcompton).

This practical approach to therapy can provide effective help for:

  • 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

The Human Givens Approach

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.  

Human Givens Therapy typically takes between 2 and 6 sessions to provide effective help, though occasionally very complex problems may take longer.  The average number of sessions for a course of treatment in my practice is 3.8.  Improvements are such that at completion of the therapy 80% of clients rate themselves within the normal range for mental and emotional wellbeing.  

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

Whilst I often draw on my medical experience to help people in Human Givens therapy sessions, these sessions are not medical consultations.  In practice this means that during therapy I cannot make a new diagnosis of medical problems, undertake physical examinations, or provide treatments such as prescriptions, neither can I order tests.   For these aspects of care of your GP or specialists are the appropriate people to speak to.
