Who we are

We are WGI-UK – with the backing of an international community and the independence of a regional body, we’re the UK governing body for Choice Theory and Reality Therapy training and accreditation (CTRTC).

We’re also a hub for training, information, personal well-being, professional resources and excellence. We’re building a community of like-minded people.

Our ethos

Choice Theory and Reality Therapy guide and support our relationships both on a personal and professional basis. Reality Therapy should be taught with integrity and adherence to the concepts described by Dr. William Glasser.

Dr. William Glasser

Dr. Glasser is an internationally recognized psychiatrist who is best known as the founder and author of Reality Therapy®, a method of counselling and psychotherapy he created in 1965 and that is now taught all over the world. He will always be remembered for founding Reality Therapy®. His groundbreaking book Reality Therapy®, published in 1965, created quite a stir in the field of psychology.

For 50 years Dr. Glasser traveled throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia lecturing to large groups of professional therapists and others who wished to assist their clients more effectively or who wished to improve their own lives.

As time went by he added a theoretical basis to the practical delivery system. He called the theory “Choice Theory®” and described it as the train track for the train, Reality Therapy®. Choice Theory® provides the validation for the application of his ideas to education, parenting, corrections, addictions and all human relationships.

Dr Glasser died on August 23rd 2013, peacefully and at home in Los Angeles, USA.
