Roderick trained for five years at the York Gestalt Psychotherapy Training Institute followed by a year at Metanoia in London before developing a keen interest in the Somatic side of Psychotherapy.

He trained with Michael Clemmens at the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute exploring the Embodied Relational side of Gestalt before completing the Diploma in Somatic Developmental Psychotherapy with Ruella Frank at the Center for Somatic Studies in New York. He has also completed trainings with Nick Totton’s Embodied Relational Therapy in Sheffield.

Rod’s approach is relational and embodied, combining the relational, dialogic elements of Gestalt with the attunement, resonance and attention to bodily sensation of a Somatic approach.

Roderick is currently an associate member of UKAHPP and subscribes to their ethical codes and procedures.

Roderick has appointments on Thursdays at York Natural Health.
