Student Testimonials

I will always be grateful for the opportunity to study at IPSA. The team has been supportive, motivating, and informative throughout my training in order for me and the rest of the students at IPSA, to become the best Psychotherapists that we can be. When it comes to personal development, practical skills, and knowledge of Depth Psychology, I already learned more than I could have imagined before the start of my training. The self-development that we undergo, and skills which we use, such as self-hypnosis, have improved relating to myself and others. I respect and wholeheartedly support IPSA and the team. They have and continue to do an excellent job in helping people follow their calling as Depth Psychologists."

" IPSA has been life-changing for me. The fact that we’re taught such a comprehensive model of psychotherapy, that includes hypnotherapy, depth psychology and clinical physiology, is absolutely amazing. I was looking forward to joining a Jungian institute, but I’m so grateful that fate introduced me to IPSA first. I’m close to Jungian theory, but not blinded by it… Thank you!"

This has been without a doubt the best investment of time and energy I could have made. Simply through the perspective of personal development, studying with IPSA, alongside a cadre of people also engaged in the process, has been more effective for genuine personal development than any of the self help ideologies I had attempted to follow over the previous 5 years.

From the standpoint of clinical practice, I have seen IPSA help both myself and others quickly, and with lasting long term results. Simply put, the method works.The focus early in the course on hypnosis, compassion & rapport and personal development sets IPSA apart from many of the more academic courses, and instead focuses on something that creates far more effective therapists; learning to look at the patient for who they are.

I can’t recommend IPSA highly enough and I truly believe this to be the best possible future of mental healthcare. I’d recommend anyone with the character and calling toward depth psychology to join. The experience isn’t always easy, but it’s definitely worth it."

I joined this course because JTLB helped me and excited me. It inspired me to become a depth psychologist, but I wasn't certain. I learned, gained experience, and discovered a whole new world. I met amazing people and grown as a person in ways I simply wouldn't have otherwise. I'm happier and more fulfilled than I've ever dreamed of (literally). There's no doubt anymore. I will reach apex level, alongside my cadre. We will tend to the flame of this great tradition and pass on the torch. We will heal people yet to be born. I've done and seen people do the 'impossible' regularly. The IPSA model works, well. There's nothing else like it and it's delivered here. If you have the character and calling, I simply must recommend this course. Looking forward to talking with you."

In my short experience on the IPSA course, I've learned that it is a great place for personal and professional development. It has a high level of professionalism and focuses on creative expression. Also, it's a great place to meet very interesting people."

IPSA has had a huge impact on my personal development in this short period of time. It has changed the course of my professional development as well. It is an ideal place to acquire knowledge that is applicable in real life. It is an extraordinary modality that has the capacity to help so many people and I am grateful to be a part of it."

As its in the nature of depth psychology and its related fields, the course attracts students with a calling for the matter and therefore an ideal environments for professional and personal growth. The IPSA Team has put a lot of thought into the design of the course and the distillation of over 40 years of clinical experience. It is very clear from the start of the course that a lot of passion and mental processing has flow into it. It's a privilege to be part of the course. Every new module and every module on its own is layered with nuanced perspective, approaches and the according theory underpinning it."

Studying here at IPSA is, singlehandedly, the most challenging, but deeply transformative journey I have embarked upon in my life yet. Being amongst students who are genuinely enthusiastic about their work is inspiring, and I am honoured to be amongst the members of the Cadres. The mentors at IPSA truly believe in the potential of their students to become the best that they can be, in their art of healing, and in all facets of personal development, which is frequently communicated amongst the members here. The material we are learning, coupled with an ongoing dialectical process with mentors in seminar, and between students in cotherapy, creates a potent environment for learning and growth.

It's safe to say that this is far more than just a course in therapy."

" There is a a lot I could say and variations of expressions I could choose from to describe IPSA and its curriculum. As every human being has different genes activated due their very own context and their genetic prepositions, it would not give justice to your experience as such.

 

First and foremost, IPSA following the humanistic tradition -  which includes the Hippocratic oath  -  does put a lot of emphasis on respecting the individual human experience. In that sense you are invited to make your own experience and pressure-test what we as students learn and hopefully you are going to learn.

 

That being said, IPSA has put a lot of thought into the design of the course and the distillation of over 40 years of clinical experience. It is very clear from the start of the course that a lot of passion and mental processing has flow into it. The compositions of the modules and every module on its own is layered with nuanced perspective, approaches and the according theory underpinning it.

 

As its in the nature of depth psychology and its related fields, the course attracts students with a calling for the matter and therefore an ideal environments for professional and personal growth. So, you can expect eager fellow students to accompany you on your journey as you develop professionally and individually. "

" I can't put into words how much this course means to me but here it goes. This course has challenged my growth as a coach, and as an individual in a truly profound way. I've learned more about healthy personal development, fulfilling my potential, and how to relate to others, in just my 1st year with IPSA which is a short period compared to the 13 years I've spent reading many books, following gurus, investing in dozens of personal development courses... only to realize I was spinning my wheels in circles. I'm in my second year with IPSA and it seems to get better. The material isn't repetitive. There are new and ground breaking theories I haven't learned anywhere else. However, you also get access to the Personal Myth Guide and training which is personalized to you. I can't thank Steve and Pauline enough for putting this AMAZING program together. And special thanks to James if it wasn't for your content on Youtube I wouldn't have discovered this community. Lastly, a massive thanks to the rest of the IPSA team for your hard work. The future is certainly bright and I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it. Thank you all! "
