We shall not have a new intake for training until autumn 2021. We have taken this decision so that we can give a clear message to potential applicants.

The centre offers:

  • Individual Body Psychotherapy
  • Post-Qualifying Diploma in Body Psychotherapy leading to UKCP registration

  • Continuing Professional Development Training e.g. Somatic Trauma Therapy Training with Babette Rothschild.
  • Short introductory courses
  • Supervision and Consultation

How Can Body Psychotherapy Help?

Most difficulties in relationships and personal problems can be helped by body psychotherapy. This includes stress, which is often experienced as irritability, weepiness, aches and pains, sleeplessness, exhaustion and lack of interest in life. Body psychotherapy can also be helpful for depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, loss (of a loved one, meaning and direction in life, spiritual connection), long term illness, lack of confidence, intimacy issues, unstable relationships, blocks to creativity and fuller enjoyment of life. Any difficulty will reveal itself physically as well as in feelings and ways of thinking.

We do not maintain a waiting list and you could expect to start psychotherapy within two weeks of contacting us. Until further notice this will be online. There is also ample free parking and a spacious garden creating a tranquil environment not far from the centre of Cambridge.
