Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy (Nafsiyat)

Entry Requirements

Before embarking on the Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy (Nafsiyat), you are required to attend Stages 1 and 2 of the Foundation in Natural Health Programme.  Then, we may consider your application for this Diploma programme.

Aim of this Diploma Programme

For the graduate to be able to run a safe, effective, legal, financially sustainable and professional counselling and psychotherapy practice based on Ilm-un-Nafsiyat within the Tibb tradition, incorporating useful knowledge and skills from contemporary research and practices from diverse disciplines.

Learners who begin this journey will examine contemporary confusions about the nature of knowledge, existence and reality.  The solution to this labyrinth is the paradigm of Hikmah, holistic cosmology and life affiming solutions.

Stage 3 – Counselling & Psychotherapy Training

Aim & Objectives

Students in this stage begin to develop their consciousness, approach and skills as future counsellors and psychotherapists.  They continue to develop the knowledge and skills they began to develop in Stage 2, with their now client-centred approach.

In this stage, students learn and develop the skills to conduct a client interview and take relevant case notes, as well as to professionally assess a client.  The training delivered in this stage emphasises professional considerations such as health and safety, confidentiality, record keeping and data protection.

Students gain a basic understanding of psychological faculties and energies, and learn about causes of the diseases of the self.  They begin to develop the essential qualities of a successful counsellor and psychotherapist.

They begin to transform their own inner dimensions and learn how these qualities and processes can facilitate their clients’ psychological health and wellbeing (the inner alchemy).
