“The goal of autogenic psychotherapy is that the patient acquires the necessary skill as far as possible uninfluenced by the therapist and is in this way able to form his own auto rhythm. …. Schultz emphasised that trance effectuated with our method is a safe way to the altered state of consciousness.” From Professor Heinrich Wallnöfer’s Schultz Lecture, British Autogenic Society Seminar 2000

“Only he who lets himself be can be himself”  (ascribed to Dr Johannes Schultz)

Therapist Experience

I have had the opportunity to introduce many hundreds of patients to Autogenic Training. It never ceases to amaze and delight me to hear of the treasures they find within themselves by using this simple meditative practice. Dr Ann Bowden

I have worked with children who find learning difficult since 1994. I have found AT helps them enormously and about 80% of them find it a useful tool. I use a modified version with children as young as 5 (with parental help). Children from nine years old can use it on their own. Izzy Harrap

Autogenics provides the very best training in embodied mindfulness that I have ever come across. Teaching autogenics, showing patients how to profoundly relax and manage stress has been one of the most enjoyable and effective tools of my medical practice in helping people to help themselves. Dr Alice Greene, 2009

AT means to me: daily pain comforted; daily exhaustion reduced; daily enjoyment increased. Plus, AT is a skill I can pass on to others. Judith Wren
