Why people choose us for their Transpersonal Therapy Counselling training:

Only Counselling course in NSW with a Transpersonal focus

Ours is the only Counselling course whose prime focus is transpersonal. Transpersonal work is based on a psychological-spiritual model which looks ‘behind the mask’ toward greater authenticity and creativity in life. 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 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.

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

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.


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.


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


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.
