Directors Chris and Pauline Andrew celebrating 20 years of Deep Release at the Principles and Practice of Deep Release Level 4 weekend in November 2014, with around 30 of our senior counsellors

Founded in 1994 with a basis of Christian faith and spirituality by Dr Chris & Pauline Andrew, Deep Release offers some of the most innovative and exciting counselling training courses currently available in the UK.

We train counsellors in the use of many different creative approaches, including the release of blocked emotions, Gestalt interventions, creative tools and pre- and perinatal psychotherapy (in-womb and very early trauma). We place strong emphasis on research, particularly in the areas of neuroscience, body work and trauma.  A high priority is given to continuous professional development.

Our training courses are interactive, highly visual, lively and challenging. 
One day and weekend seminars are held in Brentwood, Essex, on a wide variety of topics relevant to both counsellors and clients.  Presenters include Pauline and Dr Chris Andrew and the Deep Release Training Team, as well as special workshops by outside speakers.
