"More empowered"

I’ve always been drawn to wearing black but since I began this course my world has become much more colourful and as a result so has my life!

I apply what I have learnt in this course every day and feel so much more empowered as a result of understanding the language of colour.

The majority of assigned work will be practical. You will need to practise your new skills on friends or family as well as engaging in self analysis and self healing activities.

Therefore whilst you are learning, you are also creating a happier, healthier life for yourself and your loved ones. By doing so, you also become a positive role model for your clients as well as developing an empathy towards the processes that you will be taking your clients through.
