A CCM Expressive Arts qualification can lead to a rewarding career as an Art Therapist and Counsellor.

Course overview

There are many counselling diplomas available to students throughout NSW and CCM is the only college whose prime focus is transpersonal. Our course provides essential skills for successful counselling, including working with clients, life transformation, grief and loss, networking, risk management, occupational health and safety, as well as matters specific to case management.  This course is highly experiential, life changing and centres on the ‘whole person’ in counselling and therapeutic practice. Our students learn not just how to work with clients but are themselves guided through a powerful process of self -awareness and reflection that facilitates a humanistic and holistic approach to counselling and therapy.
At CCM we understand that traditional counselling skills can be benefited greatly by the addition of transpersonal knowledge and application. Transpersonal work is based on a psychological-spiritual model which looks ‘behind the mask’ toward greater authenticity and creativity in life.

The college really is at the cutting edge area of health. It’s quiet frankly an education that is second to none.

NICK MOSS

I started studying with CCM when I was already working as a Psychotherapist when I realised I needed more than simply ‘Talk Therapy’ to support my clients needs. In my prior training we had not really explored Expressive Therapies or the power role of the Transpersonal but CCM offered the perfect integration of both.

LEONA DAWSON

The Transpersonal Counselling Advanced Diploma course has changed my lifestyle, my relationships and my personal and professional goals in life. I now teach Yoga with a different and improved perspective and hold space for my students to incorporate yogic techniques while maintaining a connection to their heart and embracing their own unique rhythm.

CATH BROWN

When I decided to study Kinesiology, it was important to me that I had the best education possible. I did a lot of research and decided that the College of Complementary Medicine was the only option.

LIESL FRANK

The incredible camaraderie and sense of community encouraged at CCM goes beyond the classroom to faculty management and administration. I haven’t experienced this sense of belonging at any other college and found that it made learning so much more enjoyable and valuable.
