Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy

A Somatic Psychotherapy Training Program

Incorporating the work of Wilhelm Reich and Core Energetics with contemporary therapies and indigenous practices, students of SSBP's integrative certification program gain a strong foundation from which to organize their approach to clients. The result is as spiritual as it is psychological, opening the client's perception to the greater world around them as well as to their own unique offering which I call "Referencing From the Self".


Nestled within a large Medicinal Herb Garden, classes meet at Body-Psychotherapy of Seattle in North Seattle.  We will convene:

  • three times a year for
  • five days at a time
  • for three years

Additional electives will be offered on select weekends during the three-year time period.

In order to enter the program you must be willing to commit to a minimum of one current year.
