OUR 10594NAT DIPLOMA OF MIND BODY MEDICINE IS ALL ABOUT BALANCING HEAD AND HEART.

At CCM, we recognise that health and wellness depend on balancing head and heart – ensuring that our deeper values are expressed in our lives.

Many health approaches focus solely on the physical symptoms of illness, but Mind Body Medicine explores the relationship between the mind and the body simultaneously. Very often client problems stem from a common root – by using Mind Body Medicine you can learn how to discover these root drivers and encourage positive change.

With CCM’s 10594NAT Diploma of Mind-Body Medicine, you will graduate with the skills needed to become a practising Kinesiologist and Mind-Body Practitioner. What’s more, you will be ready to lead your new purpose-led life empowering your clients to own their health and wellbeing.

Why study a 10594NAT Diploma of Mind Body Medicine?

Our students choose CCM because we are driven by our desire to see them succeed in the community. Nothing satisfies us more than seeing our graduates thriving in growing practices.

Our 10594NAT Diploma of Mind Body Medicine course teaches a unique blend of mind and body skills that produces graduates who can start their own clinic as a Mind Body Practitioner. They are outstanding in their training and highly equipped at engaging a person’s mind, confident in using client-centred counselling techniques and body techniques such as acupressure, kinesiology and channel palpation to help clients connect, understand, embrace life and achieve wellbeing.

This course represents the culmination of 15 years of intense research into mind and body links. The unique body psychology approach uses a backbone of Chinese Medicine theory combined with Western Medicine understanding to codify the likely psychology related to specific symptoms and signs. Practitioners then use the unique body counselling approach to explore these connections with the client. The aim is to help the client discover the key driving force behind their behavioural patterns, and the connection between those patterns and their physical symptoms.

This is an extremely empowering approach to working with people with chronic illness. They go from seeing their condition as something out of their control to feeling empowered to take charge of their own health and wellbeing. The course is holistic, combining the key areas of Chinese Medicine: channel theory, 5 element and Ba Gua theory, and diagnosis; with nutrition and diet therapy, kinesiology, and counselling techniques such as felt sense and focusing.

Who is the course for?

Perhaps you recently completed either the CCM HLT52415 Diploma of Kinesiology with CCM or HLT42812 Certificate IV in Kinesiology and want to expand your modalities to include Mind Body elements. Without question you are looking to elevate your training and expand your practice and client offerings.Perhaps you are looking to start a brand new career into a field that makes a conscious and empowering difference to people’s lives. A career that offers financial security and lifestyle flexibility.

That is what a career as a Complementary Health Practitioner does – it enables you to led people on the path to healthier and happier lives, whilst giving yourself the life you want and deserve. This course is particularly relevant for people that want to work in health fields where an integrated mind body medicine approach is useful – such as working with long term chronic conditions, structural and pain related conditions, life change and psychological states. Our graduates often use their knowledge within their own practice or join an established clinic, focusing on specific areas such as chronic diseases, fertility enhancement, fatigue, recovery from traumatic events, anxiety depression, life purpose, relationships and back and shoulder pain. Practitioners of other modalities choose this course because they want elevate their training and expand their practice and client offerings.

SEE WHAT OUR GRADUATES SAY ABOUT THIS COURSE

Watch Emma Sternberg, a CCM graduate and successful practicing Kinesiologist on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, talks about her experience.

The college really is at the cutting edge area of health. It’s quiet frankly an education that is second to none.

NICK MOSS

I started studying with CCM when I was already working as a Psychotherapist when I realised I needed more than simply ‘Talk Therapy’ to support my clients needs. In my prior training we had not really explored Expressive Therapies or the power role of the Transpersonal but CCM offered the perfect integration of both.

LEONA DAWSON

The Transpersonal Counselling Advanced Diploma course has changed my lifestyle, my relationships and my personal and professional goals in life. I now teach Yoga with a different and improved perspective and hold space for my students to incorporate yogic techniques while maintaining a connection to their heart and embracing their own unique rhythm.

CATH BROWN

When I decided to study Kinesiology, it was important to me that I had the best education possible. I did a lot of research and decided that the College of Complementary Medicine was the only option.

LIESL FRANK

The incredible camaraderie and sense of community encouraged at CCM goes beyond the classroom to faculty management and administration. I haven’t experienced this sense of belonging at any other college and found that it made learning so much more enjoyable and valuable.
