Facilitation Course Link

Facilitation for a Flourishing Future

Four-Part Series Facilitation

In this training we will be exploring the applications of facilitation in a variety of settings such as clinical work with groups, working with teams and professionals, and facilitating networks for the collaboration needed for sustainable futures.

The Metavision holistic model holds inner development as a premise for the work.  The cultivation of our own awareness and emotional intelligence is a foundational part of facilitation.

This certificate builds well on the holistic training at Metavision and other diverse backgrounds.


Our counselling courses provide a clear pathway for anyone wanting to gain a recognised qualification and practise counselling as a professional.

While these courses are specifically designed to train counsellors, the skills we teach are suitable for everyday use and enrich daily life: relationships, inner harmony and self awareness and are ideal for any profession where people are central to success. 

Holistic Approach

Our holistic focus puts the human back at the center of clinical practise and helps the practitioner (or individual) become the rock that they need to be when dealing with complex issues and adversity.

Today, people want a more holistic approach to their wellbeing. If a person has a crisis, they know it’s not just a problem that’s affecting their mind, but one that involves their heart, body, soul and spirit. Counselling and psychotherapy are most effective when conducted in the context of the whole persona's health and wellbeing, not just in their mental health.

Why Metavision?

If you choose to study with us you will

  • benefit from our individualised and experiential approach to education.
  • make important connections and meet like minded people.
  • gain a useful and valuable qualification.

and above all you will:

  • know yourself better,
  • find true direction, and
  • improve your self-awareness, confidence and communication skills.

What sets our approach apart is our unifying holistic philosophy that brings together Process Oriented Psychology, studies in consciousness, the Spiritual Science of Rudolf Steiner, and aspects of Chinese Medicine.

Our students say they are deeply inspired by the depth and breadth of their learning, their own personal growth, and the strength of the skills they learn to offer humanity.

Our graduate practitioners are educated and trained to address a growing need: people wanting to understand themselves and heal on all levels. The human values of connection, communication, imagination and inspiration are central to our work.

    Hear from some of our former students, as they explain what they learned while at Metavision, and how they were transformed personally as well as professionally.

    The 5-day intensive course on Creativity and Holistic Psychotherapy by the Metavision Institute taught me meta-skills, structure, and modalities that I could immediately apply to clients seeking help or guidance on issues in their lives. The instruction was clear and interactive, providing an experiential environment that simultaneously helped me to learn the methods and grow my awareness of myself. The training helps good therapists to become better and helps non-therapists improve multiple aspects of their lives.

    Wes Heiser

    The skills I learnt reinforced and ... richly enhanced my capacity to work deeply with others ... I cannot begin to state how many aspects of the course sharpened my existing skills or gave me knew skills. It was revitalising.

    A Graduate

    Supervision with Metavision has allowed me to analyse my own reactions to encounters with a patient, a relative or a staff member. I am now able to assess my own performance on a daily basis with a more skilful eye. My personal satisfaction with the job has greatly improved and I have decided to stay working at Palliative Care after all.
