[huge_it_slider id=”3″]

The educational programme has a duration of 5 years.

It is oriented towards psychotherapy and personal development, which are approached via the body. In this method, the body is regarded as a unified psychosomatic whole which contains all the information that someone has to become aware of, in order to be healed and to develop. This method combines the Non-Directive approach with the craniosacral therapy. The result of this combination is the comprehensive Non-Directive Somatic Psychotherapy – N.D.S.E.R. (Non-Directive Somato-Emotional Release):


  • Introduction to the basic principles of Non-directiveness

  • Experiential understanding of the method


  • Function of the groups within the framework of the Non-Directive Intervention approach

  • The suggestions

  • Experiential practice


  • Training in craniosacral balance

  • Personal growth


  • Comprehensive study of the methods

  • Experiential practice in the combination of the methods

Additional practical training and supervision are required for the completion of the studies.

After the completion of the educational programme, a certificate of studies is provided by the Institute of Therapy & Education ‘Chrysallida’.
