Most graduates are accredited members of COSRT &/or BACP & some have UKCP registration. Many have gained positions within COSRT & the other accrediting bodies. Several have been kind enough to share their stories...
Our Approach & Accreditation
The LDPRT is underpinned by an integrative model, reflecting ongoing developments and research in contemporary lifestyles, sexualities and relationships.
Our two-year part time, modular training programme is approved by and leads to accreditation with the College for Sexual & Relationship Therapy, Middlesex University, the National Council for Integrative Psychotherapists and the National Counselling Society and provides a potential pathway into the Accredited Register of the Professional Standards Board. Graduates may apply for registration or accreditation with these bodies having completed the London Diploma.
Our Curriculum in 2022
We continue to be the "leading training provider" in the field, having pioneered since our earliest incarnation in 1990 support for a wide range of expressions of human sexuality. We continue to challenge a one size fits all approach to working with relationships, and welcome all student population groups - worldwide - into our programme. Our faculty couldn't be more diverse and are only matched by our student body representing to date 40 different cultural identities.
From 2022 we are, in addition to our annual research days for current and past students, adding two further days to our timetable bringing the total number of teaching days to 38+ days. These two days are given over to the particular contributions and challenges "trans" and non-binary gender identities may offer, as well as alternative models for sex and relationships. We will critically examine heteronormativity, hetero, bi and homosexualities and kink. GSRD and cultural inclusivity are fully integrated into our curriculum.
LDPRT Online Worldwide Training - from 2023
From 2023 we are offering additional Zoom-only training for those unable to attend in the UK, scheduled for June each year.
