Counselling and Psychotherapy Training

The Australian College of Contemporary Somatic Psychotherapy will no longer be offering its training in counselling and psychotherapy. There will be no intake for 2014. We are however, continuing our work in the area of body-inclusive psychotherapy and are currently developing other offerings. If you are interested in finding out more, please use the details on the contact us page and we will keep you informed of future developments.


The Australian College of Contemporary Somatic Psychotherapy (ACCSP) is at the cutting edge of counselling and psychotherapy training. In line with the latest developments in psychotherapeutic thinking and practice worldwide, we offer a ground-breaking educational experience that sets our graduates apart.

Contemporary somatic (or body-oriented) psychotherapy is rapidly gaining an international reputation for the way it encompasses all aspects of human experience. This integrated approach to psychotherapy reflects the emerging scientific consensus that all facets of our selves - verbal, emotional, physical, social and spiritual - are inextricably linked.

Based on this understanding, our students learn how to experience, and help others to experience themselves as whole and integrated beings - rather than a set of unrelated ailments or problems. This leads to a unique form of healing, transformation and deep personal awareness.

 

Our Training Team

Under the guidance of pioneering psychotherapist and college Director Jeff Barlow, the ACCSP training brings together and clearly presents to you the latest insights in areas such as neurobiology, developmental theories, touch therapies and contemporary relational therapy models, to deliver a truly holistic learning experience.

Our diverse team of highly qualified, experienced and engaging teachers ensures a high standard of personal and professional development. As an independent training and research institute, we use contemporary adult education methods in a learning environment that supports both your individual process and the group experience.

 

Your Journey

Training at our college is as much a personal journey as an academic one. Through personal therapy, hands-on practice sessions, group processes and theoretical rigor, an ACCSP training promises an embodied learning experience that will powerfully transform your understanding - of yourself, of others and what it means to be human.
