About Me

As well as my Human Givens Diploma, and practitioners certificate I have a Certificate and Diploma in General Counselling, but as I have found Human Givens therapy to be so fast and effective, I have been practising this exclusively since 2002. I can help you quickly reduce all forms of emotional distress.

You will not leave wondering whether I have been able to help you or not, you will already know.

Hugh Macnab, Human Givens Practitioner

In each of your visits, we focus on the real issues in your life and do not spend unnecessary time trawling through your past.

I will explain to you, in clear, easy-to-understand ways, reasons why you feel and behave the way you do and you will leave understanding what you need to do to feel better still. If you can understand what is wrong, then maybe you can fix it quicker?

You will also learn new skills and techniques to help you to do so, and to better manage your feelings so that you can take back control of your life. I also have specific experience of working with sexual abuse survivors.


Evening and weekend appointments, as well as normal working hours are available. Home visits can be arranged where people are suffering severe agoraphobia.


I practice at my home at the following address. There is an excellent coffee shop in Hartford (Chimes - a 5 minute walk) where anyone who accompanies you can wait.

Note : This is a NEW BUILD and may not show up in a sat nav system.

4 Halifax Row,

NB : To find this in a sat nav system, search for Walnut Lane, Hartford. Enter and immediately turn right into the new Redrow estate. Follow the road a few hundred yards until the first opening on the left. I am the second house on the left.

Travel times as follows:

  • Greater Manchester is 45 minutes by car from the Town Hall, or by train from Manchester Piccadilly with collection by myself.
  • Wilmslow, Hale, Sale, Altrincham, Urmston are all within 20-30 minutes by car.
  • Liverpool is 45 minutes by car or 20 minutes by train, with collection by myself.
  • Chester is 25 minutes by car or 10 minutes by train, with collection by myself.

You can also check out the register of approved Human Givens therapists and counsellors here to find a therapist in your local area.


Research now shows that if therapy is to succeed, it will already being doing so after the first couple of sessions.

Furthermore, if someone makes more than five visits, they are likely to begin to deteriorate.

I work in an unhurried way, preferring to take as long with each person as is required at each visit. The charge is seventy-five pounds per visit regardless of duration (please allow an hour and a half initially).
