Human Givens & Mental Health – Ivan Tyrrell

Ivan Tyrrell worked for many years as a psychotherapist specialising in brief therapy for depression and anxiety. and now spends most of his time lecturing and writing.

In 1997, he co-founded the Human Givens approach and has co-authored numerous best-selling books on mental health and wellbeing, counselling, dreaming, depression, and the origins of creativity and consciousness.

In this interview, we discuss:

  • How and why the Human Givens approach was created
  • The relationship between dreams, REM sleep and mental health
  • How to help a close friend or family member suffering with depression
  • The brain’s ‘big bang’ 40,000 years ago and how this affects us today
  • Why attention is the key to good emotional health

And a whole lot more.
