“The Transpersonal Counseling course was the most profound course I’ve done. You not only experience a true journey to the soul yourself, but you learn how to hold space and apply a series of transpersonal processes that can help your clients to find their wisdom and resources for their own healing journey. You learn a client centered therapy that works with the soul, mind, body and spirit. It is an incredible experience of self-discovery, connection, support and wisdom to become a therapist.”

Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Counselling Graduate
“I completed a double dip in Transpersonal Art therapy and Counselling at CCM. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience there which very much taught me so much about myself and also how I can be of service. I also found the teachers to be wonderful, kind and very experienced. I now run my own private practice 3 days a week, online and in person. I run bi-annual Art Therapy & meditation workshops and annual retreats with other facilitators. I supervise and support students studying with CCM”
