Over the last year I have had the pleasure to study online with Natural Energies College, doing a certificate in colour therapy. 

I was surprised how in-depth the course was which gave me a far better base of knowledge than I had anticipated. 

The response to any queries I had was prompt and the tutor very supportive. 

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend studying with this college as they were very professional in all aspects of what they provide.

"Happy tp Recommend"

(Completed Cert. Crystal Healing & Colour Therapy)

I am happy to recommend both courses. They have an excellent blend of theory and activities.The manuals were comprehensive and a useful guide for practice. 

The case study exam provided me with an opportunity to practise new skills and be provided with consistent feedback from the client and my supervisor.

"Loved learning"

I have enjoyed doing the Colour Therapy course and loved learning how different colours can heal different issues; and the many ways to use colour.

I have certainly started incorporating colour into my life and look forward to continuing to use it to help my family and others.

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?
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 7) 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) online, open book multiple choice exam for each module plus a clinical practice exam comprising of one case study towards the end of your course.

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 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.

"Valuable Experience"

I had wanted to complete this course for a while and was tentative; then I took the plunge and enrolled. 

The course content grabbed me from the start. 

It was easy to understand, and the practical activities were a good experience in building up to the final case study. 

All through the course I was supported and given valuable feedback after every assessment. 

The final case study was a valuable experience. Having to submit my notes after the sessions gave me confidence to think more and work with my client.

Getting to the end of my case study has really given me the confidence to move forward in my new career.
