About this event

ERT: Two-year Modular Advanced Body Psychotherapy Training

(Updated 22nd April 2021)
PLEASE NOTE: We have decided to postpone the start of the 2021 training until late Spring 2022. Year 1 of the training will be led by Allison Priestman and Stephen Tame, and we are aiming to settle on dates reasonably soon, with a format of an initial 5 night residential, followed by four 4 night residentials, either in Derbyshire or Devon. We will be updating the website in due course.

ERT 2021 Training – Covid, Residentials and Weekends

We attract participants looking for a robust training in working with embodiment and relationship, and are passionate about supporting you to become more deeply the therapist you already are.
ERT encourages spontaneity, creativity, and deep trust of our own inherent competence, and the trustworthiness of our clients and their unfolding process. A central theme is working with our embodied relationship with our clients.
We will nurture a collective learning community of trainees, enabling a depth of trust and learning.

If you want an experiential and theoretical model to support and develop your work as a body psychotherapist, then ERT could be for you.

  • We will support you to be courageous, heartfelt and passionate therapists.
  • We will encourage you to learn how to consult and trust your own body in the work; to inhabit your body in relation to your clients, to be willing to move towards, away, to be available, to be pushed, touched, to hold and be held.
  • We will explore, through our bodies, the marginal, the excluded, and the wild parts of ourselves and our clients, waiting to be seen, heard and expressed.
  • You will need a degree of robustness and self-awareness to embark on this journey, although the rewards will be great, for yourself, your clients and for the wider world.
    Starting in June 2021 we invite you to come and join others in a diverse community of human and other-than-human, that will examine itself, the world of therapy, and the wider world. Many people join us who are looking for a home, a place to belong for their work.
    Graduates of the training are eligible to join the Embodied-Relational Therapy Association – a ‘tribe’ for people working in innovative, integrative and courageous ways.
