Course Aims

Hope College of Crystal Healing provides a high standard of training and is dedicated to the study of crystal energy and its influence on the human body. Through research and experimentation this course encourages students to explore their own relationship with crystals in order to truly appreciate the healing potential of the mineral kingdom. By tapping into each of their senses and developing their awareness, the aim is that learners will gain the skills, knowledge and insight to guide and support their physical, emotional, spiritual and professional development as fully qualified Crystal Practitioners. Individual needs of all students are fully supported and lessons aim to be friendly and enjoyable for everyone.

 Student Feedback


"I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone, I have enjoyed every
second of it!! Personally I want to do it all again, as I really don’t want it
to end!! For me it has been not only life changing but also has given my life
new meaning, purpose and zest! The course has been a saving grace for me and I
am eternally grateful to Sandra, my fellow students and the crystals for the journey
I have shared!!"


"I am half way through my second year at Hope College. It has been a life-changing experience. Its hard to explain but I know crystals have enhanced my life, I am happier, less stressed and seem to take everything in my stride!! Sandra is an amazing teacher and explains things in an easy to understand way. I am a VERY mature student and was initially worried if I could learn and retain information but it has been so good. I cannot recommend the college enough so if you are thinking of studying crystals you will not find a better teacher!"


"Sandra is probably the most amazing teacher I have ever had the privilege of knowing, her teaching style is truly unique, flexible and keeps your attention and interest throughout. If you like or have an interest in crystals, this course is perfect in every way! You will go on such a personal journey of transformation with crystals, something that would undoubtedly be missing from an online course. I cannot recommend this course more highly. The two years have helped raise my own energy vibration and supported my own healing journey. I personally feel blessed and grateful to of met Sandra and had this experience in my life!!! All I can say is this is more than just a Diploma course in Crystal Therapy, you will gain so much along the way!!"


"The Crystal Therapy Diploma course has been a wonderful experience, the two years has gone so quickly, each lesson has been well planned and structured. I have learnt both the practical and theoretical side which is recorded in my portfolio. As I checked through my portfolio I was amazed at the wide range of subjects and areas covered that related to crystal therapy. Thank you for your help in teaching and introducing me to the powerful vibrational energies within crystals."


"Thank you for the best two years of my life! The Crystal Therapy Diploma has changed my life beyond anything I could ever have imagined. You are without doubt the best mentor and teacher I have ever had the pleasure to work with - you have taught me things about myself and what I want for my future that will stay with me forever."
