Dance of Soma & Psyche:

CPD in Integrative Embodied Psychotherapy IEP

Dance of Soma & Psyche, our CPD training, is for qualified psychotherapists, counsellors and clinical psychologists who wish to work with their clients in a more embodied way and gain confidence in utilising somatic approaches in their practice.


These experiential CPD courses bring together a number of therapeutic methods, to craft an integrative embodied framework that can be used by both ‘talking’ and body-oriented therapists. 


Integrative Embodied Psychotherapy IEP is a therapeutic model developed by Katarina Gadjanski and Tasha Colbert, the co-founders of the Institute of Embodied Psychotherapy. IEP draws on a wide range of techniques from the practices of body-oriented psychotherapy, dance movement psychotherapy, somatic experiencing, somatic trauma therapy, IFS, neuroscience, creative arts therapies, transpersonal psychotherapy and mindfulness. This integrative approach will help you enhance the repertoire of interventions you can apply in your psychotherapeutic work.
