Detailed Overview of ICS-DP

ICS-DP is aimed at developing professionals in the field of mental health from a varied broad range of work in the field of counselling-psychology and therapy; including psychotherapy, assessment, supervision, and consultation, as well as integrative approaches to health, which are informed by the structure of Neuro-Linguisitc perspectives through a psycho-dynamic lens.

It is an innovative specialisation that re-imagines approaches to therapeutic practice, enhances and supports the intervention work of students, and integrates the essential perspectives of neuro-linguistics and Gestalt in the view of inclusive & integrated approaches.

This course will provide a theoretical foundation and practitioner training in the contemporary techniques of therapeutic intervention, which will enhance the students towards mastery of the subject. 

This course provides a seamless journey from beginner to qualified practitioner in experiential, theoretical and research based work in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice. 

At the end of the course, students will complete core modules in experiential theory and professional practice skills.

  • Learn systemic, structured and formula-based therapeutic skills of Neuroliguistics & Gestalt.

  • Learn tools to evaluate blocks in the clients preventing linguistic narratives.

  • Inventory through the concept to challenge the current model, discover resources and support growth & change.

  • learn frequency of physical, emotional, psychological function and somatic experiencing (body, breath, movement & stuckness

  • Explore the thin line between pathology and norm.

  • Learn tools to research and publish a paper.

This is an inclusive approach of bringing to the field the work I learnt from Richard (Dick) McHugh, Judith delozier, Robert Dilts and John Grinder. It is a conceptual, experiential and research based approach from contemporary psychology, that which has travelled over time from some classic approaches of gestalt therapy, the interplay of constellation roles, concepts of Transactional analysis, and deep alchemy of Jung through metaphors and archetypes
