Human Givens Model

The model I use or keep in mind when I am doing hypnotherapy sessions is the RIGAAR model by Joe Griffin and Ivan Tyrrell within Human Givens Therapy,

Rapport: Build rapport quickly, start getting a ‘yes set’

Information gathering: On basic needs, interests, relationships, etc

Goal setting: Establish what the desired goal is

Agree strategy: What we are going to do is … in steps or stages

Access resources: Utilise a relaxation state, a motivation state, etc … then anchor them

Rehearse: Future pace, vividly build an experience in their mind
