A Certificate or Diploma in Practising Energy Psychotherapy 2021/2022
A clinical training for qualified counsellors, psychotherapists, clinical/counselling psychologists and psychiatrists
Saturday 24 July 2021 to Sunday 3 July 2022
After the success of the first Diploma in Practising Energy Psychotherapy (2020) we have decided to repeat this cutting-edge programme. The course provides in-depth online and in-person clinical training, inviting an open approach to integrating the myriad of contemporary energy psychologies into psychotherapy.
Working with the body alongside relational talking therapy is recognised as key when working with trauma and increasing understanding of the nervous system and advances in neurobiology support this.Read More...
The gentle methods of Energy Psychotherapy facilitate healing by releasing the stress of emotional and energetic residues of trauma at a deep bodily level. The work invites a collaborative approach which facilitates the client’s own healing process using empowering self-applied energy methods to help the client manage triggering, emotional self-regulation and calming of the nervous system. Energy psychotherapy works deeply, helping to address a wide range of conditions including P.T.S.D., patterns of transgenerational, attachment, in-utero, preverbal, developmental and complex trauma. The work ‘reprogrammes’ the neural pathways in life-affirming ways and preliminary evidence for clinical effectiveness treating PTSD with EFT, including with US war veterans, has shown good outcomes. EFT is mentioned in the updated NICE guidance on PTSD.
Practising Energy Psychotherapy offers a generic foundation in the principles of working with the body’s subtle energy systems, with incremental learning throughout the year. A clinical skills-based training, it provides a platform from which course participants can build as they learn, with plenty of opportunities for clinical practice and revision as participants learn experientially in pairs and trios by working on personal issues and triggers using energy psychotherapy methods. Through monthly small supervision groups (10 throughout the year), course participants present brief case presentations for reflection and discussion which aids learning and integration.

THE COURSE PHILOSOPHY
The origins of energy in healing – combining the old and the new
Central to the ethos of our approach is the convergence of many different streams of ideas and practical applications for working with energy. This course aims to present underlying principles creating a solid foundation for practising energy psychotherapy. The healing traditions of working with subtle energies – meridians and chakras (energy centres) – such as in China, India and other ancient cultures are at least 5000 years old. From these beginnings we see the flowering of numerous energy disciplines in our contemporary world, including Acupuncture, Qi-Gong, Reiki, Thought Field Therapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques, Tapas Acupressure Technique, Advanced Integrative Therapy, Ask and Receive, Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy, and many others.
Integrating the body and energy fields into psychotherapy
This course aims to teach clinicians to effectively and safely integrate energy psychology into their therapy practice. By including the body and energy field it is possible to work more easily with deep rooted issues, including developmental and preverbal trauma that “talking therapies” alone struggle to reach. T
