“Psychophonetics in Medical Practice –Medical Psychophonetics After 20 years in general medical practice, I realized that the one thing my holistic approach lacked was the option of skillfully using a psychotherapeutic intervention. I discovered that the psychophonetic counselling modality fitted perfectly into my medical practice.
Patients consult me for a wide range of physical and psycho-emotional problems. In the course of the interview, attention is invariably drawn to psychosocial factors which may be connected with the clinical problem. Using simple preparatory psychophonetic techniques, the patient may be invited to experience his or her physical symptoms on a deeper level. For instance, if the complaint is abdominal pain, the patient is asked to focus on the bodily sensation of pain and then to gesture with the hands and then the whole body the character of the pain. The patient then steps away from the gesture and observes imaginatively the body form that was created by the gesture. This imaginative picture frequently unveils for the patient new and sometimes overwhelming insights into the nature of the illness which he will wish to explore in a follow up psychophonetic session.
Psychophonetics methodology provides a wide range of techniques which enables the practitioner to deepen the diagnostic and therapeutic picture. The specific process that emerges during each session through the dynamic interaction between client and counselor will determine which methodological utilities are used. ”

“Yehuda has developed an enlightened form of psychotherapy/counselling called Psychophonetics – it was created by him, in the 1980s, and is a holistic approach based on Rudolph Steiner’s Anthroposophy and Psychosophy – it is now taught all over the world.
With long unfamiliar names, it may all sound very inaccessible but simply put it is cutting edge psycho-development and coaching for self-mastery and leadership, in which the human being is seen as a living body, soul and spirit.
Added to which, it is a highly effective short-term intervention for long-term self-care and self-development. Consider it the ‘Psychology of Freedom’.
Two years on, I have realised what a profound impact Psychophonetics has had on my life, both personally and professionally, and feel committed to share what I have learnt with others. I have come across many influential teachers in my time, but none that have impressed me more than Yehuda – both with his integrity and fidelity to fundamental truths. I feel immensely grateful for what he has taught me and would like as many people to benefit his insights as possible – I cannot recommend his work highly enough.”

“For me, feeling that I was running on empty led me to do an introductory Psychosophy course and then a 10 day Psychophonetics workshop. These helped me begin to re-connect with myself, face my ‘demons’ … and find sources of inspiration and energy beyond hope.”

“Coming across Psychophonetics was a revelation, it took just a taster day for me to say this is what I need, even though the whole gesturing feelings felt really scary. I have found the course very rewarding and the friendships I have made though it have given me a great deal. It has been a fast track to getting to know myself and human nature much more profoundly”
“My family appreciate that I have done this course, they say I am much easier to get on with and listen to them better than before. I thought I might just do the first year of the course for my own development but found when the time of choice arrived that I wanted more and that it was showing that it could be useful for my work. I am glad I made the choice because I find the challenge of counselling very rewarding”
