SPI’s advisory board is made up of individuals that bring unique knowledge and skills which augment that of faculty and staff in order to more effectively guide the institute. The advisory board plays an important public relations role as well as providing SPI faculty and staff with a fresh perspective on topics and issues surrounding somatic psychotherapy.


SPI has over 20 faculty members and growing that train all over the world. SPI Trainers are diverse in their orientations and specialties, which include adult, child and adolescent psychotherapy, couple therapy, dissociative disorders, group therapy, and many more. 


Certification Coaches are trained SPI staff who support students in the SP Certification Training with skill acquisition. Certification Coaches participate in a training program with supervision by SPI faculty members. Certification Coaches may be contacted by students of the SP Certification Training for extra help at a cost negotiated directly with the Certification Coach.
