This course is an initiative of a group of experienced Process Workers from Portland and Australia.
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.
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.
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.
[Christina was] such a lovely mentor for me...I have learned a lot of theories in Psychology before, in college, but I have never experienced anything like this before...Hopefully I can help other people to find the meaning of their life with your approach. I can hardly wait to see you again next year.From Singapore
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
I felt like this person in a strange land, like I didn't fit, I came from a completely different world... and now, sitting here, that's just so foreign. I have difficulty relating to that feeling that I had. It's not with me at all. I'm just far more accepting of all the parts of myself that lived in the shadows, that I kept at bay. It's like somehow there's just more space and tolerance in me. I started a relationship which I never would have allowed in my life before. It's been a beautiful relationship, deeply honest.A 2 Year Student
