Introductory Certificate in Embodied Counselling
The training provides an introduction to somatic psychology and bodymind therapy for body-based practitioners, including massage therapists, kahuna bodyworkers, somatic sex educators, and yoga teachers.
The course provides practitioners with practice in effective embodied skills, a broad understanding of psychotherapeutic theory leading to the development of body-based approaches, and practice in conducting embodied counselling sessions.
The course enhances body-based practitioners’ capacity to work with the emotional and psychological content that arises during bodywork sessions. Building on what you do well, the course provides you with greater confidence to work with your clients’ emotional and psychological selves, expanding and developing your skill set in this direction, and enhancing your capacity to articulate the complex systems in process for human beings.

- Engage in regular self practice of body awareness exercises

- Study the development of somatic psychology and bodymind therapy
- Study and develop qualities that support practitioners in working effectively with clients
- Practice embodied counselling skills
- Study the connection of the body’s systems and consciousness
