Distance Learning Crystal Therapy Diploma Course Validated by IPTI
Cost: £140 (by email) or £160 (by post)
Also available as a Workshop for Interest course, at £80 (by email only)
Crystals are of interest to so many people, and can be so helpful as a therapy modality, that I have wanted to write a crystal course for some time, and thanks to the extra time I have had during lockdown, here it is!
The course is intended as introductory, affordable training, for therapists in Reiki, massage or other modalities who wish to incorporate crystals into their existing repertoire of treatments, for meditation, yoga or t’ai chi teachers who would like to use crystals in their classes, or for complete beginners who would like to offer crystal treatments as a new career. It provides a solid background and foundation for this purpose, and for students who wish to proceed with more advanced courses, will give them a good initial grounding in the subject.
The course consists of 9 modules with a short assessment on each, a final exam, and 15 case studies (5 clients x 3 treatments each). It includes modules on the practicalities of setting up and running a holistic therapy business, the origins of crystals, why and how they can be used as a healing tool, crystal forms, the quartz family, how to choose and care for crystals, the roles of crystals within life and treatments, including grids, and a focus on 20 crystals which are used in the course. Once the theory is passed, the student MUST have insurance for their case studies, available from IPTI, our validator, (who offers a free upgrade from student to professional insurance once you have qualified) and other providers. Please check that your provider will cover you before booking on the course!
Students will require a copy of the course textbook, The Crystal Bible (Judy Hall), ISBN: 978-1841813615 as this provides background information for use with the course.
It is not essential to have all the 20 crystals mentioned, but it is a good idea to have at least a dozen, plus a wand and some quartz points, to use in your case studies. A kit is available from Earthereal (sourced ethically) containing one each of the 20 crystals featured in the course, a crystal wand (various types) and 6 small needle quartz points, for £45 including second class signed for postage. Students are welcome to buy their own crystals (although they are politely requested to ensure they purchase from an ethical supplier) and if they are just missing one or two, to ask about purchasing these.
Cost: £80 (by email)
If you are simply interested in crystals and wish to find out more, a shorter version of the course, omitting the professional practice module, the final exam and the case studies, is available for a lower price. It is still recommended to use a copy of “The Crystal Bible” alongside the course. Students can choose whether or not to complete the assessment questions.
With this workshop, there is the option to upgrade to the professional qualification within 12 months of completion, on payment of the difference (£60) and successful completion of the above sections of the course. Students choosing to upgrade must have passed the individual module assessments. They are also eligible to buy the kit.
