"Profound"

When I decided to enrol in the Dual Diploma, without knowing it, I gave myself the opportunity to start an incredible journey.

The course in itself was beyond my expectations; due to the number and variety of topics covered. But more than that, I found that the combination of theory and practice - through learning a technique first and then applying it on myself & others - gave me not only a deeper understanding and precious hands on experience, but also took me through a journey of self discovery and profound healing.

I am truly grateful for all the kind support I received along the way; and I am very pleased for each hour of my time I invested in this study.

FAQ

Is this course suitable for beginners or advanced students? 
Modules are presented with methods that accommodate and support all levels from beginners to intermediate and advanced. A varied structure of topics, theory and activities allow beginners to adjust at a gradual and comfortable pace whilst providing advanced students with innovative, stimulating activities, thought provoking discussion and the support and guidance to fine tune areas of previous study whilst gaining new skills.

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.


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 9) 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.

Are there exams? 
You will complete an online open book multiple choice exam (in your home) for each module plus a clinical practice case study exam.

What is involved in the clinical practice case study 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. The case study sessions are conducted in your own home or in your work place, if you are an existing practitioner.
