FACILITATOR TRAINING PROGRAM
The Facilitators Training Program is a very exciting project for
the Institute and the potential trainee. This program will suit
both the student who wishes to acquire the required hours for the
Transpersonal Counselling Course and also for the individual who
wishes to continue their own self-development and healing. It is
very experiential in content and thus offers many avenues of self-discovery,
growth and options for further advancement within the healing and
counselling fields. The rewards will be greater spiritual growth
and awakened insights regarding the individual’s own goals
and self-development. This course if undertaken for the right reasons
can develop within an individual deeper qualities of unconditional
love and abundance. The real and hands-on experience a trainee facilitator
will receive while participating on this program can not be underestimated.
Getting a qualification is one thing, having the experience and
skill and confidence behind that qualification is quite another.
Each facilitator will sponsor clients during each course. They will
monitor the client thus:
a) Case Assessment
b) Attendance at classes and weekends
A journal must be kept by each trainee facilitator about the emotions
and feelings that arise for them during the program. This is a vital
part of the program as an individual must be self-aware in order
to help others to become self-aware. Openness and integrity in a
counselling environment/group such as this is very important.
It is essential that the trainee facilitator be aware at all times
of their motivation and intention when interacting with clients.
Boundaries are an essential part of the Facilitator Training Program.
Tasks are given to trainee facilitators on the nights and weekends
such as leading visualizations. There will be at least two/three
one-day workshops (per course) as part of this program that each
facilitator must attend. Also, there will be a fortnightly support
group set up which is also part of the program. This program is
designed to support each individual during this intensive training.
It may be required that trainee facilitators attend additional open
The Facilitator Program trainees will be assessed on a continuous
basis. Each trainee facilitator will be monitored individually and
assessed by the Director. Assessment will be extensive, for instance,
written reports on the progress of facilitators will be submitted
by co-facilitators and the individuals themselves. Also written
feedback will be obtained from the clients. It is the Institutes
intention to give a fair and objective overall assessment to each
A trainee facilitator can reach a certain level of competence before
completing the required hours for the Transpersonal Counselling
Course. They will be informed as such by the Director if that should
be the case. The Director of the Institute has sole discretion in
regard to the trainee facilitator fulfilling the requirements laid
out for the course.
Benefits and Accreditation
A trainee facilitator using this Program to gain counselling hours
as part of the Transpersonal Counselling Course will be required
to complete fully at least two Intermediate Courses and two Advanced
Stage 1’s and one Advanced Stage 2 courses. This amount of
