ABOUT THE BIODYNAMIC CLINIC
The Biodynamic Clinic is the Clinical arm of IOBM.
Since 1989 it has provided the supervised clinical training framework for all IOBM Apprentices up to qualification and beyond.
It offers professional services and IOBM registered premises for all biodynamic practitioners by agreement.
The Biodynamic Clinic provides a recognisable biodynamic professional service and liaises with many other organisations in offering choices for health.
We offer the full range of biodynamic psychology and psychotherapy methods and the related treatments developed by clinical psychologist, Gerda Boyesen (1922-2005).
Licensed Biodynamic Practitioners in all Registered Biodynamic Clinics agree to contribute to a confidential (anonymous) database of clients, in order to develop clinical evidence for the effectiveness and application of biodynamic work for all modalities to access, via our clinical research database and library under the evolving IOBM Biodynamic Medicine Research Council.
The confidential medical and other research information that is collated is valuable not only to all biodynamic practitioners, but also to any student or practitioner interested in the origin and treatment of disease.
Within this framework, treatment protocols are discussed, shared and developed; standards of practice are constantly updated and improved and through life-long learning, peer-group review and sharing.
Clinic Director and Deputies, Biodynamic Supervisors and the IOBM Professional Standards Committee and IOBM Biodynamic Practitioners can evolve and also keep abreast of current developments and standards in the field.
Many people who have benefited from the biodynamic approach experienced in The Biodynamic Clinic become interested in learning how it works, and commence training as biodynamic psychotherapists themselves.
The main Biodynamic Clinics are in Bristol, Lewes, Feltham and London in the UK as well as in Killala, Co. Mayo, Strandhill, Sligo and Ballintrillick, Co Sligo and Dublin in Ireland.
By agreement with the Biodynamic Clinic Founder Mary Molloy – each IOBM Licensed Biodynamic Psychotherapist or other Biodynamic Practitioner eg Biodynamic Massage Therapist, Biodynamic Group Leader, Biodynamic Supervisor can apply to have the full legal right, administered and monitored by IOBM Ltd, to use the Registered Business Name “The Biodynamic Clinic” in accordance with clear Terms and Conditions.
