Affinity Psychotherapy Academy

At Affinity, our mission is to offer the most up-to-date, relevant and innovative therapy training.

Our diverse curriculum will not only enable you to flourish in the real world of therapy today, it will also shape your own journey of self-discovery and transformative practice.

At the heart of Affinity is our Advanced Diploma in Contemporary Relationship Therapy. This COSRT Accredited training teaches you the fundamentals of relationship therapy, before taking you on a deep dive into working with diversity, difference and disruption in intimate partner relationships.

Our pioneering Advanced Diploma in Neurosomatic Therapy builds on cutting-edge neuroscience and neuropsychological principles and research, enabling you to align the emotional, psychological and the spiritual realms within your clients.

Our Diploma in Energy Therapy will teach you how to perceive and work therapeutically with energy, either to complement your existing practice or as a standalone modality.

We have a fantastic faculty – all experts in their fields, with proven track records as therapists and tutors.

And all our training programmes are accredited by the National Council of Integrative Psychotherapists.

We are delighted that our Patron, Dr Betty Martin, is also one of our tutors

Betty, and facilitators from the School of Consent, will lead our module on ‘Consent, boundaries and relationships, including working with the Wheel of Consent and Three-minute Game’ on 23-24 April 2022.

 

“As a trainer and consultant in the field of relationship and sex therapy for several decades, I strongly welcome this initiative. Within a field in which polarisations can prevail – from the ‘politically correct’ to the ‘one size fits all’ – I believe that Affinity will competently navigate a middle path. Affinity will attend to issues – some for personal development, some more professional – that often fall by the wayside in training, such as men’s issues, young people and mental health, cultural and religious differences, and neurodiversity. I am not surprised Betty Martin has agreed to be Affinity’s patron. I am happy to be associated with Affinity.”
