Earn Your Integrative Psychotherapist Certification

As a student of the SOPHIA school, you have lifetime access to ALL of our specialty certification courses (but only ONE specialty stream is required for your completion of the Integrative Psychotherapist certification).

Students graduate with an Integrative Psychotherapist certification AND at least one Medial Specialization certificate in either Sound Healing & Energy Medicine In Psychotherapy; Yoga & Somatic Healing In Psychotherapy; or Plant Medicine & Sacred Ceremony in Psychotherapy.

Lightworkers come in many forms. Psychotherapist is one of them.

Length of Program / ONLINE FORMAT

This program is designed as a 3-year part-time studies program (or 2-year fast track for those with pre-existing clinical hours).  However, accommodations for five-year completions and longer are provided, if needed.  Most students will complete the program in the following format:

  • 3 semesters per year (summer off) with 10-12 week online semesters.  The third year of studies is a designated clinical practicum year 


  • Self-paced completion of online hours, ranging from an average of 4-8 hours per week (with options for more or less hours per week, depending on pacing preferences). There are also frequent opportunities provided for in-person healing intensives and in-person placement immersion weeks through partner clinics and SOPHIA retreat centres located in Costa Rica, Mexico, and Canada 


As a FOUNDERS TEAM MEMBER, you have lifetime access to all courses and specialty certifications to enjoy at your leisure.  You can be involved in as little or as much of the program studies as you wish.

Love is the most powerful medicine on the planet.  Love has to lead the Psychotherapy process for a true shift in consciousness.
