Frequently Asked Questions

We like to say that Art Therapy is like a doorway into your inner world.

Art therapy is a type of therapy that uses creative media such as paint, crayon, collage, textas, clay and pastels to express and explore your emotion and experience. Transpersonal Art Therapy which means ‘beyond the mask’, is a path to self-realisation, which unites ancient and modern wisdom and offers a range of tools and techniques to explore the many aspects of our being. It is a psychological-spiritual model, which focuses on encouraging authenticity and creativity in one’s life.

Transpersonal Counselling is a holistic approach to addressing client issues in a wide range of counselling settings. Transpersonal work is based on a psychological spiritual model which looks behind the mask’s engaging the journey towards authenticity and self-realisation. It combines mainstream counselling techniques and altered states of consciousness in processes such as dream work, focusing, process meditation and other guided induction methods, helping clients to explore issues and bring balance and wellness back to their lives. Our counselling course teaches transpersonal counselling.
Transpersonal which literally means ‘beyond the personal’ marries psychology and spirituality. It unites ancient and modern wisdom and offers a range of tools and techniques to explore the many aspects of our existence.The Transpersonal Therapists role is to build a bridge between their world and the world of the client so that they can facilitate the client to discover their own innate potentials and healing. The therapist assists the client to understand, amplify and develop their inner symbolic language. It can be said that a symbol has a universal meaning. However, it also has a meaning that is personal and will be different for every person.
Transpersonal therapy is a type of therapy that uses creative media such as paint, crayon, collage, textas, clay and pastels to express and explore your emotion and experience. It can also include other modalities such as music, dance, drama, movement, photography, digital media, psychodrama and sand play. These visual, physical, tactile and auditory media are a form of non-verbal expression that help you externalise your internal experience.
Our Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Counselling equips students with the skills, knowledge and experience to work with individuals as part of a professional private practice, as well as within an organisation. Many of our graduates go on to use what they’ve learnt in their own practices, with others working in areas such as mental health, women’s health centres and refugees, residential services, youth centres, schools, hospitals and various government projects.
Transpersonal Counselling is a fast growing field in Australia. Becoming more recognised and in demand across a wide range of organisations.The need for well trained practitioners has never been greater. A Transpersonal Counsellor falls under the complementary medicine banner. Complementary medicine has widespread acceptance in the community with recent studies showing more than 50% of Australians use it. Australians spend more on it out of their pockets than they do on Western medicine. More people go to see a complementary medicine practitioner first, than a GP.

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