"Highly Recommend"

I had always wanted to learn more about Metaphysics and this course gave me a thorough overview of topics related to spiritual healing and well being.

Given the correspondence format, I thought that I would need to muster motivation to keep going; but quite the contrary. 

I was excited and enthusiastic about all topics, largely due to the course structure and support.

I highly recommend this course and I have gained much from it that I can actually use on a day to day basis.

"Amazing Knowledge"

I have really gained a lot from doing this certificate in Metaphysical Studies. 

I can now combine it with my other studies of Naturopathy.

I loved the flexibility and applying the practical activities on myself and others. 

It helped to really understand the information on a different level.

Thank you for your guidance and inspiration. 

You really have opened up another door for me and I can't wait to touch people's lives and share this amazing knowledge.

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 metaphysical studies course is delivered via correspondence. Tutorial assistance is available via email. Students will submit their work via email.

Are there exams?

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.

Who is this course suitable for?


I enjoyed this course very much as it was extremely informative and the activities were good for practising and healing of one's self (which as a healer, we don't do as often as we should).

Would definitely recommend :)
