Postgraduate Certificate in Autonomic Nervous System Realignment Therapy

 

The Autonomic Nervous System is responsible for determining which neurochemicals and what amounts are released into our bodies; these chemicals create the physical environment our cells form and live in. This course explores the link between the way we chose to think (our perception), the neurochemicals those mental states determines and how chemical imbalances cause disease. Based on clinical evidence, ANSR investigates how and why, what we think influences our level of physical wellbeing and explains, in practical terms, how changing our thinking process will dramatically improve our physical health.

Postgraduate Certificate in Holistic Grief and Loss Counselling

 

Grief and Loss counselling becomes necessary when a person is so disabled by their grief; and, so overwhelmed by their loss, that their normal coping processes are disabled or shut down.
People may require Grief and Loss Counselling after the death of a loved one, after a long term relationship ends or even after losing their job. All people experience grief and loss differently. Grief counselling facilitates expression of emotion and thought about the loss, including their feeling sad, anxious, angry, lonely, guilty, relieved, isolated, confused, or numb.

It includes thinking creatively about the challenges that follow loss and coping with concurrent changes in their lives. Often people feel disorganized, tired, have trouble concentrating, sleep poorly and have vivid dreams. They may experience change in appetite or in their own health.
Grief counselling may be called upon when a person suffers anticipatory grief, for example an intrusive and frequent worry about a loved one whose death is not imminent. Anticipatory mourning also occurs when a loved one has a terminal illness. This can handicap that person’s ability to stay present whilst simultaneously holding onto, letting go of, and drawing closer to the dying person.

Holistic Grief and Loss Counsellors are able to provide clients with coping skills, emotional support and resources (and sometimes referrals) to help support them through the normal grieving process and also through what is known as ‘complicated grief’ (which occurs when the client gets stuck in, or does not progress through, the natural stages of grief on their own.

Postgraduate Certificate in Holistic Trauma and Abuse Counselling

 

Trauma and Abuse Counselling works to assist people whose lives have been adversely effected through being abused or traumatized either physically and/or psychologically. This may include sexual abuse, violent physical attack, bullying at home and school or in the work place, domestic violence, witnessing or being involved in a traumatic incident or accident.

The Trauma and Abuse Counsellors provides support, guidance and resources for the client to overcome the trauma and begin to implement strategies and positive life habits that allow them to live a normal, balanced life again.

Trauma and Abuse Counsellors must also have a thorough understanding of referral networks and the cycle of domestic violence as some of their clients may still be experiencing abuse and require guidance in removing themselves from danger.

Why do I need to study Meditation to become a qualified Holistic Counsellor with the Mind Body Education?

The brain and the body’s response to stress can be paralysing! When our clients are suffering from stress (which they usually will be) there is little anyone can do to assist them in finding better health, peace and happiness, until the stress and the effects of the stress on their physical and mental health has been addressed.

There are many wonderful therapies available that can truly bring about miraculous healing but while the client remains unable to manage the stress in their lives any healing will quickly be undone and illness will reappear.

When people learn how to connect with that part of themselves that is peaceful, calm and in control, they can reduce the effects of stress and trauma. When the mind is calm and peaceful, the body’s own (very powerful) healing ability is activated.

Meditation is scientifically proven to be the fastest and most effective way to reduce stress and to increase an individual’s capacity to manage stress. Over the past decade, many studies have shown how the regular practice of Meditation changes the chemical environment in the body and can repair damaged cells, reduce high blood pressure and much more.

Through the IMTTA training course, students will learn how to select the correct Meditation styles for their client’s individual learning style. They will also develop teaching skills and come to understand Meditation for the powerful, natural healing therapy it has long been known for and has now been clinically proven to be. – Isabelle Cunningham.

I have loved the learnings and personal growth in doing this Certificate in Meditation Teaching and Holistic Human Development. Understanding how the stress response impacts the body, mind, spirit and using meditation as a healing tool has been something that I have implemented in my daily life. From the beginning of the course to now….I have noticed and the people around me have noticed how much more calm and centred I am. The tools and teachings for the Holistic Counsellor/ Meditation Teacher/ Corporate Stress have provided me with much knowledge and the information in running classes and workshops that have me feeling confident and ready to practice.

– Simone Woodhead

I feel by doing this course I have gained a thorough understanding of the many different meditation styles and how when incorporated into our daily lives, meditation really does heal the mind, body and spirit. I had always heard the term flight or fight and I now have an understanding of how being in this state for prolonged periods of time can damage our minds and bodies causing serious illness and disease. I didn't know what a holistic counsellor was before doing this course, I have always wanted to do a counselling course to compliment my psychic/healing business as many clients are often fragmented emotionally and spiritually. They come for a reading to get the answers, when the answers are inside them, don't get me wrong the Tarot and my connection to spirits messages are always clear. I now have a greater knowledge of human behaviour and an understanding of the layers needing to be peeled back to get to the core of a perceived problem. Enabling clients to open up and do the work of discovering their full potential and their authentic self.
