About us

Welcome. We offer Body Psychotherapy. This assumes that mind and body function together: a psychological difficulty is also a physical difficulty. Being worried about a relative, a friend or a work colleague may affect sleep and be accompanied by tiredness, aches and pains and irritability. Body psychotherapy pays attention to these physical signs. We work with them through "listening" non verbally to these communications alongside talking through difficulties. We take a whole view of someone and tackle problems from different angles. We aim to get to the source of difficulties, which often lies in the past in our childhood relationships.

We think firstly of you as a human being and can work with a wide range of difficulties and issues. We do not think of you just as your problem such as depression. We like to get to know your experience of your problem and what seems to help you and what worsens things. In this way, we hope to mobilise your own capacities to heal yourself within a therapeutic relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

We are an experienced group of body psychotherapists and the centre was we have been in Cambridge since 1986. We are UKCP registered as individuals, and the centre is an organisational member of UKCP. Some of us are also members of the European Association for Body Psychotherapy.

Body psychotherapy is well equipped to work with trauma and some of us have completed additional training with Babette Rothschild in Somatic Trauma Therapy, and Somatic Experiencing (Peter Levine). Some of us are also trained in meditation, including mindfulness.

We also have advanced students available for lower cost psychotherapy - when applicable.

Our training programme in body psychotherapy leads to a future career as a body psychotherapist. It is also possible to take this further with our collaborative partner, Anglia Ruskin University and study for an MA Body Psychotherapy.  A key textbook is "Verbal and Non-Verbal Communication in Psychotherapy" by Gill Westland (2015).
