"Building knowledge"

As a Reiki practitioner, I enrolled in this course thinking it would be mainly revision for me. 

Instead I found myself learning and building on my knowledge of energy healing and discovering techniques that have truly enhanced my Reiki sessions. 

My clients are delighted and so am I. 

I have walked away from this course with so much more than what I expected. 

Thank you.

General Information

Manuals: The manuals are very comprehensive, have a flexible weekly study schedule and are comprised of a balance of theory and practical activities. 

Meditations are delivered on sound files within the manuals so that you are able to take yourself through each meditation. Activities are delivered in a step by step process and where relevant are accompanied by video clips making them easy to follow for students of all levels. 

Tutorial Assistance: Written feedback and guidance, as relevant, is provided to students each time they submit their assessment activities and any time they have questions pertaining to their course.  

Supplements:  The supplement module 5.1 Clinical Practice is a study partner for all Natural Energies College certificate courses. It provides  students with professional practice foundations that are relevant to certificate level. (Please note that the supplement modules are subsidised by the college to maintain cost effectiveness for certificate students)


This course contains some activities that require the use of the following crystal implements - a quartz pendulum, amethyst druze and satin spar. These implements may be bought from a crystal or new age store. With the exception of the quartz pendulum, the remaining implements are optional as the activities may be conducted without them. 

Currency/Payments: All course fees are in Australian dollars and inclusive of GST. Payment options (without GST) are available to students living outside of Australia. 

All payments are strictly non refundable.

Please note: Government funding such as Austudy, VET fee help and Centre Link study allowance are not available with this course.

 There are no prerequisites for the certificate courses. However Reiki, or a similar hands on healing workshop may be helpful for students that have no experience in energy healing.

 Students that successfully complete this certificate will receive credit for the Metaphysical Studies module should they wish to continue their studies with the Diploma in Holistic Counselling, Diploma in Complementary Therapies, Diploma in Spiritual Counselling or the Dual or triple diploma.

A credit is also available for modules 2.1 and 5.1 if students wish to continue their studies with another NEC certificate course.


I found the college to be very supportive and enjoyed my studies. 

The modules are very easy to follow and the knowledge gained from the course can be integrated in your practice with confidence.

What type of homework do we receive?
Homework 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 brief 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.

Note: Due to the Covid 19, we are asking those students that are in lockdown, are self isolating or limiting their social contact - for the time being - to only practise techniques on those people that they live with. Relevant activities can also be adapted so that they are conducted via Skype/phone or conducted on self instead of a volunteer.  We will be making allowances and exercising flexibility in study for the duration of social distancing. 

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.  Students will submit their work via email.
