Psychosomatic Therapy Training

Empower Your Life!

A 10-day course for you to receive this profoundly transformative therapy – and to learn to provide it for others. Now offered in two levels – see below!

Do you feel ready for a transition in your life?
Do you sense there’s more to your potential?
Would you like to live with more purpose, connection and empowerment?

Psychosomatic Therapy is the most effective way to realise these changes, and many more.

About This Course

Psychosomatic Therapy brings your conscious awareness to the relationship between your psyche (conscious and unconscious mind) and soma (body). It shows you why you are the way you are, highlighting your unique natural qualities, as well as anything that may be hindering your full and free expression.

This course is about remembering who you really are, free of the layerings of your personality, habitual attitudes, outdated beliefs and unconscious feelings. It is an opportunity to deeply release that which no longer serves you, and allow your true nature to shine once again.

This training is excellent for those who wish to develop themselves personally and/or professionally. The 10-day learning process takes you on a journey of self-transformation, in a space that is safe, open and held in the highest integrity. Upon completion of the course requirements, you will be fully qualified to start practicing this therapy in its own right, or to integrate it into your current work. Psychosomatic Therapy is highly complimentary with many natural therapies. It’s also invaluable for any profession that depends on quality personal interactions.

I look forward to leading you through this extraordinary journey, and truly seeing YOU at the end!

Course Content

Level 1 of the training focuses on personal development, while Level 2 delves into providing the therapy at a professional level. If you’re mainly interested in this course for personal development, you can now simply attend Level 1. If you find you’re inspired to learn more, you can go on to Level 2. Many people attend the whole 10 days just for their own benefit and find it richly rewarding.
