Human Givens Therapy

Human Givens is a mental health therapy technique based on the philosophy that everyone needs something, both physically and emotionally – it is hardwired into our biology. Often, our physical needs for air, food and sleep can become intimately tied with our emotional needs, which can become just as intense and instinctive. Addressing our clients’ natural needs for love, attention and human connection is the focus of our counselling service.
