1. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Learn to identify and understand your patterns of thought

This is a professional training course suitable for students new to the field as well as existing therapists or coaches who wish to add CBT methods to their professional toolbox.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a form of talking therapy that focuses on how you think about the things happening in your life and how those thoughts affect your behaviour. A cognitive behavioural therapist helps you to identify and understand your patterns of thought, and to realise how you can alter those patterns of thought in order to change the way you feel.

Our Cognitive Behavioural Therapy training course includes comprehensive core counselling modules and is designed to enable the graduate to meet the National Occupational Standards for Counselling relevant to counselling work within the context of Cognitive Behavioural Training.

2. Psychology - Advanced: Gain an understanding of the approaches on human thought and behaviour

Have you ever wondered why you are afraid of spiders, and what you can do to cure yourself? Have you ever despaired over the prejudice and discrimination in the world and wondered what can be done about it?

Have you ever watched a week-old baby seemingly studying intently the people and objects around it and wondered what on earth it makes of its new world, and just what thoughts, if any, might be going through its mind?

If you have answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, then you'll find this distance learning psychology course a source of constant fascination as we examine a wide range of psychological topics and answer all of these questions.

Covering areas of psychology from child development to emotional disorders and social psychology, our online psychology course will give you an advanced understanding of the various approaches to this fascinating study of human thought and behaviour.

Child psychology is the study of the mental, social and emotional development of children from birth through to adolescence. It examines changes in motor skills, cognitive development, language acquisition, and identity formation.

6. Meditation: Explore the many meditation techniques that can be used to support the mind-body connection and promote healing and wellness

This program will guide you as you discover how the practice of meditation can be used to increase mindfulness, reduce stress, deal with pain and illness, and support overall well being.

7. Reflexology: Learn how to enable the body to function efficiently by Reflexology

Reflexology is one of the fastest growing holistic therapies now gaining worldwide acceptance. It is based on the scientific principle that every organ in the body is reflected in certain reflexes in the feet.

The feet are a microcosm of the human body. By manipulating the reflex areas on the feet, energy congestion in the body is released. Correct stimulation of the feet reflexes, while the client is relaxed, improves the energy flow and the blood supply.

This results in an overall feeling of well-being and this enables the body to function efficiently. Reflexology is a completely safe, natural aid to restoring the body's healthy balance.

For generations, families have relied on traditional herbal medicine, much of which is now recognized as scientifically correct.

This course provides the necessary knowledge and information for making and using herbal remedies at home. However, professional advice should always be sought if symptoms persist.

1. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Learn to identify and understand your patterns of thought

This is a professional training course suitable for students new to the field as well as existing therapists or coaches who wish to add CBT methods to their professional toolbox.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a form of talking therapy that focuses on how you think about the things happening in your life and how those thoughts affect your behaviour. A cognitive behavioural therapist helps you to identify and understand your patterns of thought, and to realise how you can alter those patterns of thought in order to change the way you feel.

Our Cognitive Behavioural Therapy training course includes comprehensive core counselling modules and is designed to enable the graduate to meet the National Occupational Standards for Counselling relevant to counselling work within the context of Cognitive Behavioural Training.

2. Psychology - Advanced: Gain an understanding of the approaches on human thought and behaviour

Have you ever wondered why you are afraid of spiders, and what you can do to cure yourself? Have you ever despaired over the prejudice and discrimination in the world and wondered what can be done about it?

Have you ever watched a week-old baby seemingly studying intently the people and objects around it and wondered what on earth it makes of its new world, and just what thoughts, if any, might be going through its mind?

If you have answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, then you'll find this distance learning psychology course a source of constant fascination as we examine a wide range of psychological topics and answer all of these questions.

Covering areas of psychology from child development to emotional disorders and social psychology, our online psychology course will give you an advanced understanding of the various approaches to this fascinating study of human thought and behaviour.

The course aims to enable the student to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to help the suffering individual and their family members into recovery.

6. Meditation: Explore the many meditation techniques that can be used to support the mind-body connection and promote healing and wellness

(8 contact hours) Although there are many ways to meditate and many different forms of meditation, they all share a unifying characteristic: Each focuses on intentionally training a person's attention and concentration. Meditation practices have been used by cultures around the world for thousands of years.

In this certificate program, you'll explore the many meditation techniques that can be used to support the mind-body connection and promote healing and wellness.

This program will guide you as you discover how the practice of meditation can be used to increase mindfulness, reduce stress, deal with pain and illness, and support overall well being.

7. Reflexology: Learn how to enable the body to function efficiently by Reflexology

Reflexology is one of the fastest growing holistic therapies now gaining worldwide acceptance. It is based on the scientific principle that every organ in the body is reflected in certain reflexes in the feet.

The feet are a microcosm of the human body. By manipulating the reflex areas on the feet, energy congestion in the body is released. Correct stimulation of the feet reflexes, while the client is relaxed, improves the energy flow and the blood supply.

This results in an overall feeling of well-being and this enables the body to function efficiently. Reflexology is a completely safe, natural aid to restoring the body's healthy balance.

8. Medicinal Herb: Gain information for making and using herbal remedies at home

For generations, families have relied on traditional herbal medicine, much of which is now recognized as scientifically correct. Too often in today's society we receive powerful drugs from our doctors for self-limiting ailments for which it may be more appropriate to call on herbal remedies and a balanced approach to living.

This course provides the necessary knowledge and information for making and using herbal remedies at home. However, professional advice should always be sought if symptoms persist.

9. Yoga Teacher: Learn the basic knowledge of teaching yoga

Teaching yoga has been a growing profession around the world for some time now. This course is designed to equip you with the basic knowledge of teaching yoga, building upon the foundation of your preferred yoga styles. It will also complement other natural healing and counselling courses.
