ERT: Two-year Modular Advanced Body Psychotherapy Training 2022

Allison and Stephen are excited to be leading the 2022 Embodied-Relational Therapy Training at Eden Rise, and enjoying the conversations we’re having with potential trainees.

This is an ideal course for counselling and psychotherapy and allied practitioners to develop and deepen your work into relational body psychotherapy.

This 15th year of the training brings together the core of the ERT tradition, embodying the 4 stage approach, Reichian character structure and ERT metaskills, and incorporating our passion for connection, movement and stillness, spontaneity, working with the embodied experience of social injustice, psychotherapy theory, wild therapy, and the impossibly complex & simple task of being human alongside other humans.

This year we will be basing the first year of the training at Eden Rise Retreat Venue  – the Network of Wellbeing’s beautiful retreat centre near Totnes.

We attract participants looking for a robust training in working with embodiment and relationship. ERT encourages spontaneity, creativity, and deep trust of your own inherent competence, and of your clients and their unfolding process.
A central theme is working with your embodied relationship with our clients. We will nurture a collective learning community of trainees, developing a depth of trust and learning.


Quotes from previous trainees:

“I love the invitation to ‘be the therapist you are’ and explore what that can mean…. To get braver in our vulnerability and find a deeper trust in our innate ways of being to unfold.”

“I have finally found in ERT a training that will see my weaknesses as strength…”

“…ERT has completed a cycle for me … ERT training has helped with the ground of my being, and with the relational aspects of my life.”
