Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor: Professional Training Programme in Finland

Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (PBSP) is a body-based therapy, and an approach to human psychological development.

It represents the coming together of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural and system-oriented principles, along with client-centred attitudes, in one integrated philosophy. Body-based information and experiences are utilised, applying well defined principles and techniques which are offered to participants in a way that empowers them to stay in charge of their own therapeutic process. This unified method is supported by the latest research on cognition, emotion, memory systems and brain functions.

THE TRAINING PROGRAMME - IN SHORT:

Pesso Boyden therapy training programmes are part-time and last at minimum three years. Each year consists of 8 days (4+4) of formal training. The teaching is interactive and engaging, featuring skills practice from the outset.  It includess ‘live supervision’ and demonstrations,  which are interspersed with formal lectures.  Participants learn how to incorporate using the body in their therapeutic practice.

Participants undertake their own individual study and practice throughout the programme. They are also expected to experience Pesso Boyden structures as clients, as part of their personal therapy outside the programme. 

IS THE TRAINING PROGRAMME SUITABLE FOR ME? WHAT DOES IT OFFER?

The Pesso Boyden Training Programme is for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who wish to develop and practice as a Pesso Boyden therapist or to integrate the Pesso Boyden method into their therapeutic approach when working one-to-one or in group therapy sessions.

Training is also open to those in other ‘people’ professions, such as bodywork practitioners, teachers or coaches who, while not therapeutically trained, might find that the Pesso Boyden approach will enhance their attunement skills, which are central to successful outcomes with students and clients.

The training programme offers also powerful tools to your own personal development - inner healing and growth. It enables you to step into a new level of fulfilling your dreams and showing and enjoying your unique human potential. 

It is important that as a trainee you can follow the teaching in English.
