The Prince Albert Depth Leadership School offers a range of courses as well as individual and group processes here in Prince Albert.
As captured in our motto of working beneath, between and beyond for a thriving psyche community and planet, our long term vision is twofold:
1. To develop the psychological literacy of the town of Prince Albert.
2. To raise awareness and offer education in the theory and practice of depth psychology throughout South Africa and beyond.
In the near future we would like to establish ourselves as a fully accredited depth psychology university and we are slowly but surely developing a range of courses and interventions that work towards this goal.
In order to meet local demand, we are launching a Parenting Course that will run on an ongoing basis in Prince Albert, on a paying it forward basis.
