It's been an exciting year for the human givens approach.
We have lots of things in store for 2015 but before we embark on the new year, let's look back on everything we have achieved in the last twelve months.
HG Online Courses
We will primarily remember 2014 as the year we began offering online psychotherapy teaching as well as face to face training.
The first of our new online courses launched in the Spring of 2014 was HG Delving Deeper: Exploring consiousness and your relationship to reality, a course designed for those who are intrigued by life's 'big questions', consciousness, pattern matching, self-development and meaning.
This course paved the way for the next two courses, How to break the cycle of depression and How to understand and treat all types of addictive behaviour - both of which count towards Part 1 of the Human Givens Diploma. We have already had people booking on from all over the world. Several more courses will be available to take online soon so stay tuned..
