A deeply experiential Humanistic Psychotherapy Training Programme

The Homa humanistic training programme is a diploma course offering a deeply experiential approach to psychotherapy training. Join us and you will experience an enriching and demanding training which will take you to the edges of yourself and beyond, as a person and as a psychotherapist.

We cannot be fully human, living meaningful and empowered lives, without being intimately connected to ourselves and our bodies, to each other and to the other-than-human. At Homa, self-awareness, embodiment, social justice and eco-therapy are fundamental aspects of a training programme which is rooted in traditional theories of humanistic psychotherapy.

 

Train at Homa and you will become the barometers of our age, embracing a powerful role in being the active listeners of human experience and reactions to a changing world.

TRAINING AT HOMA

THE FOUNDATION YEAR

Year 1

The Foundation Year is an experiential psychotherapy programme offering you a powerful year of personal and professional exploration, enquiry and growth. 

This is the ideal way to start the process of becoming a psychotherapist. You can dip your toe in the water before you decide if you want to go on to complete the full training programme and qualify as a practitioner.

 

In the Foundation Year you will explore all that it means to be you and how you are in relationships, through the lens of humanistic theoretical traditions.

 

The Homa Training Programme (years 2-4) is open to anyone who has successfully completed the The Foundation Year.

THE TRAINING PROGRAMME

Years 2 - 4

The Homa Diploma Training Programme is both broad and deep. With over 740 tutor-taught hours and residential modules, it is one of the most substantial trainings available in London today, offering significantly more hours than are required to qualify as a psychotherapist. We believe that this is how long it takes for you to develop your unique qualities, skills and confidence as a practitioner.

You will learn about and practise therapeutic models such as Gestalt, Existential, Formative and Person-Centred Therapy. The training programme includes modules on sexuality, diversity and cultural competence, eco-therapy, movement and embodiment. These themes are woven into the fabric of the training as well as having their own distinct, in-depth modules.

ONE STEP AT A TIME

You may be reading this already knowing that you definitely want to train as a psychotherapist. If that's the case, the Homa four-year training programme will provide the theory and experience you need to qualify as a practitioner. 

But what if you're not sure yet? We offer a limited number of places for the Foundation Year only. If you're interested in the possibility of being a psychotherapist but you're not certain, the Foundation Year means that you can experience a powerful and transformative year which will set you on a new path in your life, whatever you do next.

 

By the end of the year you will know whether the training is the next step for you. Whichever direction you choose, you will have developed significant skills, understanding and experience that will benefit and enrich your life, both personally and professionally.
