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. The IBMT Diploma Programme was founded in 1990 by Linda Hartley, and is now taught by Linda and an international faculty of IBMT trainers.

The Institute has been in discussion with the University of Chichester, and initiated a new Masters Programme for Somatic Practitioners. IBMT Graduates can now undertake Masters-level study.
