Course Overview

The Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Therapy offers students an integrated psycho-spiritual approach to dealing with issues and matters that arise in a wide range of counselling settings. The course has a deep foundation in academic theory, as well as a strong emphasis on key themes of authenticity, self-realisation, possibility and meaning. At the same time as deepening theoretical knowledge and practical skills in counselling, students will develop an acute understanding of themselves and their relationship to others.

Ikon’s rigorous approach to the delivery of this course and it’s commitment to the personal growth of students makes this program highly sought after by those who have a passion for self-realisation and for helping others to maximise their potential.

Students in this course have the option to specialise in either Transpersonal Counselling, or Transpersonal Art Therapy, depending on their subject choice. In addition, students can opt to complete a double qualification by completing some additional units from the Diploma of Counselling, in turn graduating with a dual qualification.

The Diploma of Counselling at the Ikon Institute of Australia is designed to provide graduates with an applied knowledge and skill set for working in the counselling and helping professions.

The face to face component will provide students with a supportive environment to participate in classroom discussions, learn from a variety of specialist trainers (many of whom are current practicing therapists) and to practice your skills.

Delivery Format

Students are required to attend 2 days per week of classroom training. Modules are conducted predominantly in the classroom, with some required online content to be worked through each week.
