Phoebe Weiland, Human Givens Psychotherapist

I use a range of tried and tested counselling and meditative techniques to help you feel more balanced and happy as quickly as possible. I work with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, trauma and physical symptoms driven by emotions.

Human Givens therapy helps you to meet your emotional and practical needs

We often have competing voices in our heads – some led by our rational, thinking self and others by powerful emotions. When life gets difficult, emotion can overwhelm us and block our ability to problem solve. When we can’t find a way out of our problems, we can feel unable to meet our own needs and live a healthy, balanced life. Our work together will help you identify which voice you want to listen to, the resources you already have to draw on and what new skills you might develop in order to meet your needs.

Talk first, then relax and meditate..

Human Givens is a highly practical, solution focussed therapy which combines tried and tested counselling techniques with guided meditation. This approach helps to:

  • defuse difficult memories and experiences
  • overcome depression and anxiety
  • manage compulsions or break a habit
  • alleviate pain or other physical symptoms
  • Face a challenge
  • eat or sleep better

Feel better fast..

My aim is to make you feel more balanced and resilient after every appointment. Although I will need to know something about your past to understand your present, our work together will always be about the future and how to get you up and running again as quickly as possible. Research published by the British Psychological Society found  that three out of four Human Givens clients were either symptom free or reliably changed after an average of 3.6 sessions, concluding that this type of therapy is ‘highly effective’. 

How sessions work..

Each session begins with a focussed and practical discussion to help you work out what makes you feel better and create a road map to reach this. We will identify the personal resources and skills you already have to do so, as well as those we can develop.

This is then followed by a relaxing few moments of guided meditation to reflect on the ideas you have generated and imagine putting them into practice. This communication with the ‘emotional brain’ strengthens the bond between rational thought and instinctive behaviours, to get them working together again.

Learning skills and strategies..

Much of what we do together will be highly practical. You may learn how to manage your time better, or sleep more easily. Or you might discover how to feel more relaxed in social situations or to quickly defuse stress or panic. 

Our body often reflects our emotional state..

Many of us have physical symptoms which are fuelled by our thoughts and feelings. This may be anything from a ‘nervous tummy’ (IBS) to joint or muscle pain and feelings of exhaustion.  Sometimes our body is telling us something our mind finds hard to face. When the two are helped to connect and communicate with each other properly, solutions are found and symptoms often disappear.

Pain is primarily driven by stress, tension and anxiety. Learning to manage these feelings can have a huge impact on helping you feel more comfortable, so you can return to your normal activities.
