For Professionals

Education for Life

It is the mission of Life Design Centre to change the way psychotherapy is practiced and understood. Our educational outreach will attempt to inspire clinicians to move beyond limited conventions and to see their work in an expanded light. Central to these initiatives will be the promotion of psychotherapeutic integration, an emphasis on the personal development of psychotherapist, as well as a push for the full-bodied incorporation of spiritual understandings into the field. We see the future of psychotherapy as holistic in scope and cosmopolitan in sensibility. It will be both deeply ancient and fully modern at once.

Life Design Centre is pleased to offer training courses as well as ongoing consultation, educational, and
practice groups. Our courses and trainings are expansive emotionally and challenging intellectually. Participants will be encouraged to think in more subtle and complex ways as well as to deepen their intuitive skills and healing presence.
