Jim Aberdein Human Givens Institute Registration

The human givens approach is a brief, solution-oriented, talking therapy that works by helping
people use their natural resources to get their needs met. In this way, people naturally resolve their emotional difficulties.

The human givens approach has inspired several ground-breaking discoveries including answers to questions such as the age-old conundrum of why we dream, what causes depression and, therefore, how to lift it quickly, how effective approaches to treating traumatic memories actually work and why people on the autistic spectrum find it hard to manage many aspects of everyday life as well as an innovative model that sheds new light on how we perceive the world around us.

Using these understandings and working with the givens of human nature, Jim is looking forward to continuing to help people heal the damaging after-effects of abuse and trauma, overcome addictions, cope with loss and bereavement, regain hope and move on with their lives with renewed purpose.

Jim would like to thank everyone at Ashlins, clients and staff who have helped him gain the practice he needed to achieve fully qualified practitioner status with the Human Givens Institute.
