Postgraduate Training in Co-Creational Psychotherapy

Programme Aims

The purpose of the training is to engage participants in developing a core consciousness and practice of Co-Creational Psychotherapy which they can incorporate into their existing professional practice. A central aspect of the programme is the conscious integration of the principles of the approach into their own personal and interpersonal lives.

Programme Objectives

The programme is primarily about the participants’ own inner course and from that place of consciousness applying the course principles to their work with clients. Participants’ own individual stories, case studies and peer practice are central to the training process. Also a prime focus will be listening to the experiences of the training leader and programme participants and engaging in and witnessing the co-creational psychotherapeutic approach in action. The training will be specifically designed to match the professional practice requirements and clientelle of the participants. 

Who May Apply for the Programme

The training is open to Clinical Psychologists, Counselling Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Counsellors who are interested in exploring a different approach to human suffering – their own and those who seek out their help.
