This course is suitable for psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, and people that are interested in understanding the importance of the connection between body, spirit and mind and how emotions and cognition manifest themselves in the body. In addition to detailed understanding about the anatomy, physiology and basic pathophysiology of the human body, we will explore how subjective experience and objective manifestation are two sides of the same coin.  


The Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology course comprises 9 Fridays a year (48 hours in total).


This course will run during the day, usually starting at 10:00 am with 1 – 2 hours lunch break (exact time to be confirmed).



The price of this course is £800.




The course will be given by Dr Elya Steinberg. Dr Elya Steinberg, MD, is Co-Director of the Centre for Biodynamic Psychotherapy (London School of Biodynamic Psychotherapy). She is a medical doctor, teacher and biodynamic psychotherapist. She is integrating body-psychotherapy, Gerda Boyesen methods and Bioenergy with conventional allopathic medicine and complementary medicine.
