Practitioner Level Diploma

Sound Therapy Training (Practitioner Level Diploma) – Distance Learning

A Practitioner helps their clients to discover how their current life/health situation impacts their wellbeing in a deeper and focused way.

Learn how to help your clients to discover how their current life/health situation impacts their wellbeing in a deeper and focused way using a client centred reflective process. You will also learn to help your clients to reframe life-limiting beliefs and develop new and positive strategies for finding balance and flow in life.

On this course you will learn how to choose the best instruments and techniques to support your clients and how to apply those techniques to suit their individual needs. You can also apply the techniques to groups. As well as having specific techniques, there is room for professional judgment and creativity – it is rare that any two treatments are exactly the same.

This course is perfect if you want an in-depth look in 1-2-1 sound therapy, a variety of instrument choices and to also be able to give group sound sessions.

A blended learning option is also available for this course.
