The Human Givens Institute (HGI) has been added to RedArc’s curated panel of nearly 30 professional bodies, which is used by RedArc’s nurses to select therapies for individuals where external specialist support is needed. HGI’s problem-solving approach aimed at working with the ‘here and now’ is an effective brief therapy and will be suitable for individuals who have anxiety and anger disorders, depression, stress, phobias, addiction, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and relationship problems.
About the Human Givens Institute
The Human Givens Institute (HGI) is the professional body representing the interests of those who work in alignment with the givens of human nature.
The human givens method – which was developed 20 years ago – uses a practical, fluid approach, which centres on the understanding that, when essential emotional needs are met and our innate mental resources are used correctly, a human being will be emotionally and mentally healthy.
Any specialist third parties that RedArc utilises, must meet strict criteria. In the UK, the Human Givens Institute’s professional register is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care an independent statutory body accountable to parliament, which demonstrates that its therapists have appropriate governance, training, qualifications and evidence of ongoing Continual Professional Development.
Seeking the best possible outcome for an individual, RedArc nurses make a clinical assessment to determine the most appropriate therapy. The nurse will then select a therapist who they feel is best for the individual’s presenting circumstances and who may have the specific skills or expertise in dealing with certain situations, for example trauma, bereavement, relationship problems amongst others.
The types of specialist therapies used by RedArc are very wide ranging and include neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), hypnotherapy, art therapy, drama therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen, Cognitive Analytical Therapy, Reflexology and Reiki.
Christine Husbands, managing director for RedArc said: “Many people initially think they know what sort of therapy they need but without a professional understanding of different approaches, it’s impossible to judge what it going to be most beneficial. Because our nurses have a huge wealth of knowledge about the variety of therapies available, when an individual undertakes a clinical assessment with us, we are able to get them on the road to recovery extremely quickly with a course of therapy or therapies best suited to their individual needs.
“Being able to refer individuals to HGI-approved therapists gives us an additional option for clients where we feel a forward-thinking type of approach is most suitable. We know that for the right individual, human givens therapy can achieve significant improvements within a very short time frame.”
