Intuitive Counselling/Coaching professional training

 This diploma course is available at the SevaLight Retreat Centre for Self-Realization, Pure Meditation Healing & Counselling, Waiwera, Auckland and via zoom.


This training gives the opportunity to take Counselling/Coaching and Self Development to a highly advanced level. It is for those who wish to help themselves and others effect positive and life enhancing changes: to assist their individual growth and personal development in every way. Students may develop an Intuitive Counselling/Coaching practice, take the Intuitive Counselling/Coaching skills and way of life into their work (e.g. teaching, therapy, personnel, business management or health care) or take the Course as part of a personal Self Development programme. We see Intuitive Counselling/Coaching as an intuitive art, requiring a great depth of wisdom, understanding and unconditional love.

Emphasis will first be placed on deepening the intuitive awareness of students, on learning ways of identifying the subtle ego and its reactions, and on releasing conditioning and emotional preferences. Only those who desire progress within themselves will be able to assist with Intuitive Counselling/Coaching in others; for this counselling is healing in a very deep and real sense, touching the spiritual as well as the physical, emotional and mental levels.

Intuitive Counselling/Coaching helps to put both practitioner and client/patient/colleague in touch with their own uniqueness. It goes beyond format, rules and designated stages, to freedom, self-discipline, self responsibility and universal truths. It is a profound way to connect with inner direction, choice, and unconditional acceptance of self/others.

Training will be carefully paced and monitored by the Tutors, with the individual’s progress very much in mind. The Course will consist of seven intensive training models of 5 days per module: three modules in the first year, three modules in the second year, with a final Assessment module in the third year. Assignments, both written and practical, will be set in the intervening periods. Ongoing support from the Tutors will be available during the Course and afterwards, as necessary.
