In 1968 Gerda Boyesen moved to London, where she found acceptance and interest in
her new research and its results. She established a private practice and embarked on
teaching her methods.
Among her first students were her daughters (Ebba & Mona-Lisa) and her son (Paul),
which continued to develop their own work.
In 1976 she opened The Gerda Boyesen International Institute for biodynamic psychology
and psychotherapy in London, England. For 32 years she trained hundreds of therapists
from all over the world in her methods.
Gerda Boyesen opened training centers in other countries like France, Germany, Switzerland,
Holland, Brazil and Australia among others.
Today there are Biodynamic Psychotherapy schools in various countries around the world.
