More and more people are taking responsibility for their own health and need support to know how to do that. We are entering a time where consciousness about food and health is rising and becoming mainstream; where people are questioning how they can heal themselves from their physical pain and illness. People are becoming increasingly aware of Natural and Organic foods. Alternative medicine is not so alternative today as more people look into natural cures through herbs and other natural remedies. Holistic Health Counseling is becoming main stream and is increasingly in demand. We have developed a unique, comprehensive Certificate Program to support the movement into Holistic Health & Wellness.
The Foundation of the Program
Our Holistic Health Training Program is founded on the experiential and didactic work that is distilled from Body-Centered Psychotherapy and Subtle Energy Healing. The length of the program is two years. Each year consists of 27 Wednesday evening sessions between 6:00 P.M. and 9:30 P.M., an opening weekend and a five-day residential program held in the beginning of June. In addition, there will be several weekend workshops each year that will focus on the essential elements of Holistic Health Counseling.
Our teaching is inspired by our dedication to helping students master an understanding of the holistic connection between emotional, spiritual and physical health, not only for their clients but for themselves as well.
Our desire is to help each student develop the art of healing from both right and left brain; that is, from both embodied intuition and intellect. This integration of the student’s personal growth and professional skills is necessary to become a highly trained and successful practitioner. We teach through demonstration, guided experience and skilled feedback. Our 22 month program allows the time necessary for the student to blossom in the safe environment of mindful relationships with trainers and fellow students.
In our Holistic Health Counseling Program we want to assist students in working from their spirit – integrating theory, skill, self awareness and integrity. Excellence is much more than knowing information and techniques. It has to do with remaining alive, centered and grounded as a healer. In the process of discovering our own aliveness, we become more aware of the various energies that live in our clients. As practitioners, having a deep commitment to our own health provides an energetic invitation for clients to develop a foundation that supports the path to their well being.

Hartford Family Institute’s Mission
Hartford Family Institute is about aliveness, joy and holding each client’s pain in the energy of compassion. We help build emotional supports that enhance aliveness and feelings of confidence. We make room for power, clarity of vision, and passion. We create a space to support dreams allowing us to reach beyond what we thought was possible. We believe that wounds created by childhood trauma impacts the way we eat and take care of ourselves.
Hartford Family Institute, founded in 1969, has been helping psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, nurses and energy healers to learn the art and craft of a psychotherapy and energy healing that allows transformation to occur at the core of our being since 1976. Although based in Hartford, CT., there are or have been training sites in New York City, Kansas City and Germany. “We practice and teach that transformation of body structure, chronic tension, self destructive beliefs, addictions, depression and anxiety, physical pain and illness, all physical, emotional and relational issues, can be effectively treated.”
