Breathwork is a natural, simple and powerful tool that has the ability to transform your wellbeing. The breath is the only system in the body that we can control and learning to breathe to your fullest capacity can be life changing. What’s amazing about breathwork is that it can calm & soothe, energise and invigorate and generally help maintain homeostasis within the body’s systems. There is a breath for every need and because it’s a system we can control it is a truly empowering and rewarding discipline.
This 20 hour CPD will give you the confidence to bring a range of breathwork practices into your existing client work and own personal breathwork practice. You’ll learn a range of breathing exercises for:-
- Sleep disruption
- Vagal tone (supporting trauma recovery)
- Pain management
- Health and wellbeing
Breathwork can be truly transformative and even a few weeks of daily short practices can put your health and wellbeing onto a more positive path
The course comprises:-
- Why breathwork and it’s key benefits
- A range of breathing practices, their benefits and contra-indications

2 Study Options:-
Self-study is via our online portal where you can take your time to work through the modules so learning at your own pace. Self-study learning is ideal for dipping your toe in to see if counselling training might be for you. From here in-person training will then be necessary to progress through to become a counsellor. It includes video lectures, exercises, demo’s and ‘conversations with…’ to give you an all-round learning experience.
Face to face is ideal if you’d like to get a full experience of what counselling training can offer you. It involves theory lectures, discussions, small group exercises and skills practice sessions.
