Course Aims

Many students enrol in order to help with personal health issues or as part of their spiritual journey, whilst others just wish to expand their knowledge and understanding of crystals. Some are holistic therapists already and wish to add crystal healing to their skills, and others use the course as a stepping-stone onto the more advanced Diploma course. We aim to support all of our students and encourage them to explore and experiment with a large variety of crystals in order to truly discover and appreciate the healing potential of the mineral kingdom. Lessons are friendly and enjoyable with hands on practical exercises and group discussions where everyone’s opinions are valued and respected.
