As some of you are interested in MA, we would like to use this opportunity to let you know that anyone who has trained with us and is UKCP registered, after an appropriate process od accreditation of prior learning through Cambridge Body Psychotherapy Centre can apply to the Post Qualification MA (PQMA) at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge (usually one year more).

Course Structure

Year 1 consists of course in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology and 2 modules:  

Basic Certificate Course in Biodynamic Massage and Basic Principles in Biodynamic Psychotherapy

Advance Course in Biodynamic Massage  & Basic Skills in Biodynamic Psychotherapy

From Year 2 onwards the part-time program is strongly experiential and students find this a challenging and enriching process of personal growth. Our objective is to develop the personal qualities, theoretical understanding and practical skills of a wise and compassionate psychotherapist.

There are eleven 3-Day workshops in London plus a week-long residential workshop

The aim of the training is to ground students in a deeply embodied understanding of the biodynamic view of the human individual as a unity of mind-body-spirit.

Dedication to one's own personal growth, fulfilment and well-being is seen as a prerequisite for offering help to another. Students are encouraged to develop a reflective and exploratory approach to what is presented and to value and trust their own findings.

Teaching is given in a spirit of interchange and sharing. The trainers are all psychotherapists with many years clinical experience. Groups are small, allowing plenty of individual consideration and group interaction.

Theory and practice are constantly interrelated in the workshops; students develop an embodied understanding of the biodynamic concepts and principles and have ample practical experience in working with the various biodynamic techniques. They gain a profound insight into the processes influencing a person's capacity to make satisfying relationships and to live a productive and enjoyable life.

Biodynamic Psychotherapy helps people recognize and value the workings of their individual life-force and therapists need to know this depth in themselves in order to reach their clients at the most fruitful levels. Therefore, students are required to take weekly biodynamic psychotherapy throughout the years of training, as the students personal development is the basis of their training.

This course is approved by the UKCP and leads to the LSBP Diploma in Biodynamic Psychotherapy, certifying that the student is now fully competent to practice as an independent biodynamic psychotherapist. People holding the LSBP Diploma are therefore eligible for registration with UKCP, that is, their names are added to the UKCP Public Register of Psychotherapists.
