Gentle Healing of Mind, Body and Spirit

The Gerda Boyesen International Institute of Biodynamic Psychology and Psychotherapy Ltd (GBII) and its clinical arm The Biodynamic Clinic, have transformed the lives of many people by helping them to restore their natural health, peace of mind and emotional well-being...

Clinical Psychologist Gerda Boyesen (1922-2005) established a new branch of knowledge known as biodynamic psychology and psychotherapy. This knowledge is not limited to these applications. It is increasingly being applied in the field of trauma recovery, energy medicine, conflict resoluton, pre and post operative and post diagnosis care. 

Her findings are confirmed by new research and discoveries in cell biology and neuro science. Her theories throw new light on the important concept of 'life energy' and how this is regulated organically in the body, enabling the mind, body, spirit and soul to be re-sourced and free. 

Many people contact us who are in pain or are stressed, under pressure and finding it hard to cope, challenged by a serious illness, or at a turning point in their work or life. Many people also come for simple quality relaxation, pleasure and flow, to maintain vital health and strength and to enhance the joy of living.

Whether you are interested in ongoing one-to-one sessions; or a biodynamic retreat - 'block therapy' (6 - 24 hours over 1 - 5 days - residential); or you simply want to experience this approach in one of our experiential 2 day Introductory Weekends, Theme Workshops, Spring, Autumn or Winter 5 day Seminars, or at our 10 day Annual International Biodynamic Summer School, we look forward to seeing and working with you.

We are especially committed to full post-graduate level training in this field, to qualifying biodynamic psychotherapists and practitioners; and to training health and other professionals who wish to incorporate the biodynamic approach and biodynamic skills into their current profession or practice.

Welcome from Mary Molloy, Principal

We hope that you find our website a useful introduction to the Institute and its activities, as well as providing a wealth of information about the field of biodynamic psychology and psychotherapy.

Gerda Boyesen was a remarkable and gifted woman who left a legacy of great importance for humanity. I am honoured to have known her for over 30 years and to have worked closely and extensively with her during some of this time.
GBII is now entering a new phase in its commitment to make biodynamic psychology and psychotherapy and the related treatments developed by Gerda Boyesen, plus all of her literary works, more available worldwide.

We invite you to join us in this vital and exciting endeavour.We welcome all enquiries about training, treatment, courses and membership. Thank you for visiting our web site. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Mary Molloy


"I was having difficulty in my life, communication and relationships. I have been attending biodynamic sessions for 1 -2 years and it has helped me come to terms with how my past relationships have affected my present life. It has helped the development of improved communication skills, and has helped me to understand my body to a greater degree."


"Mary then treated various areas of my body (neck, back and shoulders) with firm massage where I had suffered extreme pain and tension for many years and in fact also had surgery on one shoulder which resulted in ongoing pain for the last 4 years. All I can say is that since then the whole area is wonderfully relaxed and comfortable - I can't believe it - check back in 3 months time. Can you imagine, a wonderfully relaxed neck and back where for years all stress and tension had manifested - quite amazing"
