How can I make IMT mine? (Minimum 2000 words)
Integrative-Mindbody-Therapy greatly emphasises the responsibility for the integrity of the therapist, as much as of the client. Therefore, you are not expected to become a clone therapist, but instead to develop your own, unique voice in conducting therapeutic dialogues through IMT.

Each piece of knowledge has contributed to your making, and to your individual way of thinking, being and doing.
This essay gives you this very opportunity to map your expertise and consider how you would like to make IMT yours. What kind of a therapist are you envisaging yourself to be (or already are).
