Welcome to the London Diploma in Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy

The London Diploma provides a first class, nationally accredited training, drawing on the contributions of a culturally diverse student group. We are underpinned by an integrative model, reflecting ongoing developments in contemporary lifestyles, sexuality and relationships.

Covid-19: Currently our courses are being run online and students are receiving further support via additional tutorials and one to one contact with their course directors and reflective group leaders. We intend to resume face to face teaching in September: LDPRT will review protocols on a regular basis in line with government direction and recommendation.

'In The Footsteps of the Fathers'

Book cover image

Co-authored by Course Director Judi Keshet-Orr

In the Footsteps of the Fathers: Psychosexual therapy with the Orthodox Jewish community - an overview from the therapist's chair...

"Judi Keshet-Orr is a renowned teacher and trainer of psychosexual therapy and has probably trained more psychosexual therapists from the U.K. and worldwide than anybody else in Britain. This book is for all therapists....... I found it a fascinating read.."

  - Margaret Ramage Fellow UKCP and COSRT

"....a book written with sensitivity....a long overdue book....we hope this book will become a textbook to which every psychosexual therapist will have easy access"

  - Rabbi Joel and Ruthie Portnoy Israel

"It is a truth increasingly (if not universally) acknowledged, that therapists need to take account of the historical, cultural, religious and contemporary worlds of their clients. Judi Keshet-Orr draws on her academic research and vast experience as a therapist and trainer to provide clear descriptions of Orthodox beliefs and practices. Especially illuminating are the sections on Orthodox law, including teachings on sex, morals and ethics."

  - Reviewed in Therapy Today 2019 by Roz D’Ombraine Hewitt, psychosexual therapist

"This is a sensitive, compassionate, and perceptively written book by two experienced psychosexual therapists and trainers, Judi Keshet Orr and Sarah Collings…………its clear language and accessibility mean it would be of relevance to anyone who has an interest in the field of sexuality and relationships."

New Course
Diploma In Psychosexual and Marriage Therapy

Photographs of LDPRT Alumni

For many years now the Orthodox communities in the UK and further afield have acknowledged the lack of marriage counsellors and therapistsfor the community and provided by observant counsellors within the community. Several years ago, a pilot programme was runsuccessfully at a Fertility Service for the community in London, with the support of its Dayan. Some of its graduates have become qualifiedmarriage counsellors with the inclusion of problems presented within marriage including those of an intimate nature.

We shall commence this dedicated training for the community in London, from October 2020.
The support of Rabbi Mordechai Nissim has been enlisted.
