          IMT Training criteria

          Training in IMT consists of three stages – basic, intermediate and diploma. Receiving a practitioner diploma takes at least three years to complete. The training is modular, and students accumulate training hours, theoretical, experiential and personal work and are expected to integrate IMT within their clinical practice under supervision.

          The training is geared for counsellors and psychotherapists (or trainees in their final stages) and for practitioners of adjacent fields. Bodyworkers, coaches, group facilitators and people who work with people are also welcome to join, but would have to complete basic therapeutic training elsewhere while doing the IMT training. For specific details please contact me.
