On the occasion of the 25th anniversary the London Diploma in Psychosexual And Relationship Therapy, we are delighted to welcome these eminent scholars and pioneers in the field as honorary patrons of the course:

Rabbi Joseph Dweck


The London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy ensures that this most important field in mental health and well-being is supported and developed. The programme, led by Judi Keshet-Orr and Bernd Leygraf runs at the highest standards and professionalism. The more safe, professional, therapeutic and nurturing space that is afforded to us in order to learn to conduct healthy relationships and intimacy, the better it is for society. I am pleased to be a patron of the programme and wish it continued success.

Staying emotionally and mentally healthy is a cornerstone of modern life. Without relationships where would we be? No (wo)man is an island and I am honoured to be a patron of the London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy training course. Judi and Bernd have vast knowledge, experience and professionalism. Their approach is holistic and most importantly practical, actually putting theory into practice is their forte.

It is a pleasure to endorse The London Diploma in Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy. It is a professional and robust training, with an extremely high standard. It is deeply committed to the profession and offers an inclusive training which promotes psychological health and support. The faculty are of an enormously high calibre who work together collaboratively to support student learning. It was my pleasure to meet several of them.

I congratulate the London Diploma on its on-going success in the field of psychosexual and relationship therapy training. I am mindful of the vast achievements of Judi Keshet-Orr and Bernd Leygraf and faculty colleagues in establishing this training as the gold standard in the profession both in the UK and Europe; I am delighted that the London Diploma integrated some of my work into their curriculum and had the pleasure of working alongside the team in London.

We at the LDPRT would also like to acknowledge with gratitude the patronage of the late Yumi Schleifer.


We are both honoured and delighted to be Patrons of The London Diploma. Judi Keshet-Orr and Bernd Leygraf, with their immensely professional and competent team, continue to provide the highest standard of training in the field of relationship and psychosexual therapy.
We particularly appreciate their inclusiveness, not only in the student population, but also in their teaching, and with external colleagues such as we are. The LDPRT is a high quality institution and is integrative in the fullest sense of the word. They are without a doubt one of the greatest assets to the world of training and development in the UK.

Last year, I had the great privilege and pleasure of giving a talk to London Diploma students on issues that therapists might consider when helping transgender clients and was greatly impressed by their excellent, thought-provoking questions. I envy any student who benefits from the course, the course directors and faculty as a whole who have qualities of insight, experience and compassion and can think of no better teachers. And the more that people can be helped to understand themselves, their identity and their sexuality, the happier they and the world will become.
