We teach the complete Comprehensive and Professional Trainings in the Hakomi Method, offering the full spectrum of effective, applicable Hakomi Therapy skills for professionals, clinicians and graduate students in counseling, psychotherapy, social work, and related fields. Trainings include an integration of leading-edge discoveries in the psychotherapy field (including neuroscience, trauma and attachment research) to support professionals in their work.
