Somatic Movement Therapy and Education

Integrative Bodywork & Movement Therapy is a holistic approach to Somatic Movement Therapy and Education based on principles of Body-Mind Centering®, Authentic Movement and Somatic Psychology.

The Institute currently offers training and professional development in the UK, Lithuania and Russia.

In 2015 we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the training programme, founded in 1990 by Linda Hartley, with a new 3-year IBMT Diploma Programme in the UK. It will run from September 2015–June 2018. The Institute has also been in discussion with the University of Chichester, and initiated a new Masters Programme for Somatic Practitioners. Beginning in September 2015, IBMT Graduates will be able to undertake Masters-level study.
