I enrolled in both the Certificate in Colour Therapy and Certificate in Crystal Healing and found them to be an absolute delight to study. I now feel excited about how both modalities can be used in our daily practices to enhance happiness, wellbeing & health. The activities are sometimes challenging and all rewarding.
The support and guidance throughout the course was excellent. The healings are subtle, yet profound. Learning from Natural Energies College was a fabulous experience.

What type of assessment
activities do I need to complete with this course? Assessment
activities are designed to assist you in developing the necessary
skills of a healer. The majority of assigned work will be practical. Upon practising each activity, you will then type up a summary of the activity; your observations and the outcome and submit this to the college via email.
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.
How often do I need to submit work?
I have always loved colour, but using it to help people improve thier lives was very satisfying.
The case studies at the end of the course and the feedback from my tutor was a very valuable experience.
Assessment activities must be submitted monthly (at least). If you are unable to submit work for a particular month, that's fine as long as you notify the college via email prior to or during the month in question. The college will provide you with a recommended quota of activities to submit each month; however you can increase (up to 20) or decrease (down to 1) this quota to suit your lifestyle. If you submit less than the recommended monthly quota, then it is just a matter of catching up in other months.
Do I need to attend classes
on campus at any time during the course?
No, the entire colour therapy course is delivered via correspondence.
Tutorial assistance is available via email. Students will submit their work via email.
I do not live in Australia. Can I still
enrol in your courses?

Are there exams?
You will complete (in your home) an open book multiple choice exam for
each module at the end of your
course plus a clinical practice exam comprising of one case study.
What is involved in the
clinical practice exam?
The clinical practice exam requires you to take one volunteer client through weekly healing sessions for 7 to 10 weeks. You will
have supervision and guidance via email to assist you with
planning and facilitating your case study sessions. The aim of the
clinical practice exam is to provide you with experience in your chosen
field and to build your confidence in working as a holistic healer.
Your clinical practice exam is conducted in your own home or at a
wellbeing centre in your local area if this is available to you.
