Certificate in embodied therapeutic practice
This post-qualifying course is designed for experienced counsellors and psychotherapists (as well as the recently qualified practitioner) who are interested in developing their knowledge and skills in working with the body in the counselling and psychotherapeutic relationship.
This course will be an opportunity to develop your understanding and clinical practice with regard to the body and its place and potential within the therapeutic relationship.
The course will consist of experiential exercises, theoretical input and exploration, skills practice, self study and play – there is no learning unless there is play (and some pain of course).
The course will be experiential and touch on your own process and history. Self-care practices will be explored. It will also be a place for exploration and integration of the theoretical underpinnings of working with embodiment.
Course duration and dates:
10 days over five months (one weekend per month) commencing September 2019.
Course dates: (10:00am – 5:00pm each day)
- Saturday 21 Sept / Sunday 22 September 2019

The course is designed to broaden your awareness and engagement with embodiment to enhance your way of working within your therapeutic approach and modality.
Experientially – our own experience is the main teacher so there will be personal explorations of your experience of embodiment. Doing this in a learning community extends the learning considerably as we learn from and sensitise to the diversity of experiences of embodiment. This resources our work.
Theoretically – we will explore some of the key ideas and theories that underpin embodied therapeutic practice in a variety of ways to support embodied integration – the theory is best integrated through experience.
