On the occasion of the 25th anniversary the London Diploma in Psychosexual And Relationship Therapy, we are delighted to welcome these eminent scholars and pioneers in the field as honorary patrons of the course:

Prof. Claire Rabin

It is a pleasure to endorse The London Diploma in Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy. It is a professional and robust training, with an extremely high standard. It is deeply committed to the profession and offers an inclusive training which promotes psychological health and support. The faculty are of an enormously high calibre who work together collaboratively to support student learning. It was my pleasure to meet several of them.

I congratulate the London Diploma on its on-going success in the field of psychosexual and relationship therapy training. I am mindful of the vast achievements of Judi Keshet-Orr and Bernd Leygraf and faculty colleagues in establishing this training as the gold standard in the profession both in the UK and Europe; I am delighted that the London Diploma integrated some of my work into their curriculum and had the pleasure of working alongside the team in London.

Hedy and Yumi Schleifer

We are both honoured and delighted to be Patrons of The London Diploma. Judi Keshet-Orr and Bernd Leygraf, with their immensely professional and competent team, continue to provide the highest standard of training in the field of relationship and psychosexual therapy.
We particularly appreciate their inclusiveness, not only in the student population, but also in their teaching, and with external colleagues such as we are. The LDPRT is a high quality institution and is integrative in the fullest sense of the word. They are without a doubt one of the greatest assets to the world of training and development in the UK.

Sarah Collings - In Memoriam

A patron of LDPRT since 2019, Sarah sadly died in January 2022.

Sarah was an avid and wholehearted supporter of LDPRT. She and her contributions will be missed. We are truly grateful for her support, kindness and wisdom over the last 30 years.

She was co-author with Judi Keshet-Orr of 'In the Footsteps of the Fathers: Psychosexual Therapy With The Orthodox Jewish Community - An Overview From The Therapist's Chair'.

The London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy is a longstanding training programme continuously evolving embracing change and innovation within the professional field.
This ability to fuse robustness with fluidity has resulted in a programme that combines an underpinning in Humanistic values, whilst including the more behavioural, cognitive and prescriptive approaches of sex therapy. Ethics, as well as including and integrating diversity in all its presentations is part of the course ethos and history. Having been involved in many ways over a long time being asked to be a Patron feels a real accolade.
