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

Course overview 

Our 10701NAT Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Therapy (Art Therapy) (TAT) course is unique in its approach to health and well being. The course unites ancient and modern wisdom. The course is based on a shamanic model and is underpinned with the scientific theory and insights of both mainstream and transpersonal psychology as our students learn the therapeutic qualities of drawing, clay work, sculpture, painting, pastels and collage creation. It’s a journey of individual discovery that empowers you with the skills to guide others on their quests to take control of their own health and well being.  This is a highly experiential and practical course that is incredibly valuable for people who want to work in mapping and navigating life crises and transitions. The depth of knowledge you’ll gain also enables you to work effectively with both mental health issues and spiritual crises as well as how to differentiate between the two.
The focus of our 10701NAT Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Therapy (Art Therapy) is on individual therapy, but it also equips you with skills for group work. You’ll leave us with a profound understanding of the psyche and a range of techniques to explore it, which opens up a wide range of career options in both clinic and organisational work.

Double Diploma Option

With our new offering you can graduate with two Diplomas. You can complete the 10701NAT Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Therapy (Art Therapy) and the CHC51015 Diploma of Counselling.  We are delivering the CHC51015 Diploma of Counselling  in partnership with the Ikon Institute. This course is on the Priority Qualifications List and Eligible for Vocational Student Loans.

  • Add to your skill set by graduating with two Diplomas.
  • Student loan available up to $10,000
  • Nationally accredited qualification
  • Graduates of the CHC51015 Diploma of Counselling can get membership with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA). Membership with ACA opens up a lot of employment opportunities.

Who is the course for?

This course appeals to a wide range of people, from all walks of life. Some students come with a love of art and a desire to help others, or have an interest in combining art with the spiritual aspect of life. Others already have some training in areas such as psychology but realise they lack the right counselling skills or want to expand their knowledge. For many though, art therapy offers a new career direction when their current job no longer offers any satisfaction.

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.

Course Suitability

As part of the enrolment process, each student is also interviewed to ascertain their individual interests in undertaking the course, to ensure it is suitable for both their personal and career aspirations.
