One Day Workshop with Dr Claudius van Wyk

An introduction to applied psychosomatic medicine – exploring the science of


On Saturday 27th September at The Heartwood Centre, Dartington Space

From 10.00am - 4.30pm, Cost £50 


What is actually going on with psychosomatic diseases where people get sick because of stress? More importantly - what is going on in spontaneous remission - where people suddenly get better without medical intervention from life-threatening illness?

And amazingly - what is going on with the placebo effect when people get medically validated beneficial effects from for example taking sugar tablets when they believe they are taking the real thing?


All of this points to a huge field of possibility for therapists. Claudius van Wyk offers an introduction to psycho- neuroimmunology (PNI) - the scientific study into the phenomenon of the effect of thoughts and feelings on the effective functioning of the immune system. He'll deal with how thoughts and feelings compromise the immune system thus affecting our physical health. He'll work with the question of how a counselor can help enable the client to apply them. He'll explore how a therapist can identify what kind of thoughts and feeling can boost the immune system - thus promoting health and healing.

Throughout Claudius will offer the empirically validated theoretical framework and offer the appropriate NLP tools to be employed.
