The Masters in Holistic Counselling

 

The Masters Pathway is a set course of study comprised of the Advanced Certificate in Meditation Therapy & Holistic Counselling plus the following courses and research units.
Students can choose to enrol in the Masters Pathway from the outset or enrol in, and complete the Advanced Certificate in Meditation Therapy & Holistic Counselling and then complete the required Postgraduate courses one by one.

 

Level Two: Certificate in Autonomic Nervous System Realignment Therapy (ANSR)

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 are formed in and live inside. This course explores the link between the way we chose to think (our perception), the neurochemicals those mental states determine 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.

Level Three: Certificate in Brain-Body Medicine

This course explores why people can find themselves ‘trapped’ in old belief systems, negative thinking and habitual ideas that do not contribute to living happy or healthy lives. It provides a deeper understanding of the simple and practical tools we can use to help adopt a more positive and healthier thinking process. It includes an in-depth exploration of how and why particular thinking patterns manifest into specific physical illness. Based on scientific research and humanistic psychology, this course takes the mystery out of ‘mind-body medicine’ and brings a popular theory into a new light as a comprehensive healing modality.

Level Four: Certificate in Advanced Holistic Counselling

This course delves deeper into the practicalities of holistic counselling therapy. You will study communication skills (verbal and nonverbal), building counsellor/client relationships, relationship counselling, the holistic counselling process, mental and emotional wellbeing, counselling parents, counselling teenagers and releasing past trauma. This course also looks at the important ethical aspects of holistic counselling and will guide you in developing a completely professional practice.

Level Five: Certificate in Holistic Trauma and Abuse Counselling

Trauma and Abuse Counselling works to assist people whose lives have been adversely affected 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 workplace, 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.

Level Six: Certificate in Holistic Grief and Loss Counselling

Grief and Loss counselling become 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 the expression of emotion and thoughts about the loss, including their feeling sad, anxious, angry, lonely, guilty, relieved, isolated, confused, or numb.
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.

Level Seven: Certificate in Holistic Telephone Counselling

This course prepares students to offer telephone and online counselling therapy for clients who are unable to attend in person for various reasons. These reasons may include family or work commitments, disability, location, lack of transport or isolation.
Telephone counsellors need special skills to ensure the client experiences as close as possible, the safe and nurturing environment the counsellor would provide in a face-to-face consultation.

Level Eight: Certificate in Holistic Marriage and Relationship Counselling

This course provides students with the skills and information required to counsel married couples, unmarried couples, families, siblings and others involved in close relationships who are seeking assistance to overcome difficulties within the relationship.
In this role the Marriage and Relationship Counsellor will often act as a mediator and will provide the couple (or family) with positive communication skills and life tools to assist them in expressing their emotions in a positive and non-blameful manner, taking responsibility for their part in the relationship breakdown, setting goals and identifying desired outcomes for themselves and the relationship.

Level Nine: Certificate in Corporate Stress Management

Stress can have a major effect on work performance. Some of the consequences include absenteeism, diminished performance, negative attitude and cynicism, decline in commitment and creativity, and a decreased ability to concentrate, learn and interact with other employees.
