IoPT offers the experiential Intention Method as a way of exploring the unconscious stored memories of emotional and physical trauma.  This method will enable you to access these implicit, often pre-verbal memories which are held in the body and are commonly at the root of mental and physical health difficulties.

This integrative method can benefit anyone wishing to improve:
  • relationships, both personal and professional
  • emotional and psychological health
  • physical symptoms 
  • self-understanding

The workshop provides a safe, supportive environment in which to identify your 'trauma-survival strategies',
increase your sense of ‘healthy self’ and step by step integrate early trauma experiences which have been split off. 


In this group setting, we will explore the 'Trauma of Identity' and 'Trauma of Love through practice, theory and discussion to discover how emotional trauma informs all our relational difficulties.


Venue: Arc Hall, Hoathly Hill, West Hoathly, East Grinstead, West Sussex RH19 4SJ
Time: 10am to 6pm

A working place guarantees an opportunity to work on your own process. A participant place is a chance to observe and to participate in others' processes. If time allows it may be possible to 'upgrade' to a working place on the day.
A shared lunch of soup, bread and salad is included (you are also welcome to bring your own food to share).
Tea, coffee and fruit is provided throughout the day.

Individual Sessions

Although the group therapy environment is very safely held, for some people working in a group feels frightening or intimidating and individual sessions are advised.  Maria offers one-to-one sessions via Skype, and Lucy offers one-to-one sessions in person. For more information please contact us.
