The Advanced 4 Year Training Course consists in 5 weekends (75 hrs) a year.

For who is interested in applying for I.P. Certification there are some additional requirements that can be found on the IIPA website:

The I.P. UK course, will be held by me, mostly in person, in East Sussex UK.

At the end of each training year each trainee can request a Certificate of Attendance (subject to hours of attendance).

The I.P. course in Serbia, will be held by me, mostly in person, within the I.P. Training establishment IRIPS in Belgrade.

4 year CPD Psychotherapy Training in UK:

Starting in January 2024

Advanced CPD Course, for experienced practitioners, in Richard Erskine’s model of Relational Integrative Psychotherapy as outlined in his books “Beyond Empathy” and “The Art and Science of Relationship”.

This 4 Year Training Course will provide a comprehensive understanding of the theory and practice of the Integrative Psychotherapy: Relationally Focused, Developmentally Based Model.

The course will be taught at masters level and is open in particular to experienced psychotherapists and counsellors.

The training will be delivered through Modules of lectures on specific topics, theoretical group discussions, experiential group exercises, presentation of clinical case discussions and therapeutic demonstrations of the I.P. Model in action. The participants will have the possibility to learn, personally experience and practice their understanding of the I.P. Model during the course modules.

This 4 year training is an essential part of the training requirements leading to certification as an Integrative Psychotherapist, for who wishes to continue, by the Commission of Standards and Certification (CSC) of the International Integrative Psychotherapy Association (IIPA).

Given the structure of the course this will be a closed group of no more than 15 people.

For this reason, ideally, you are asked to commit to the full 4 year course.

I offer a range of workshops on different topics in person and online. These workshops are recognised as CPD hours by all the associations of which I am a member. On completion I will issue a Certificate of Attendance for each participant.

I offer Relational Psychodrama Group Supervision Workshops which is a particular way of offering and involving the group within the supervision process. This is a creative supervisory model which integrates the I.P. Philosophy and Method with some of the concepts and methods used within the Psychodrama Theoretical Model . On completion I will issue a Certificate of Attendance for each participant.
