    This course opens doors in to a much broader understanding how we can support clients seeking for health, happiness and peace in their life. As it says holistic counselling, I haven’t been disappointed. The course delivers an understanding of who we really are and where we are coming from, to the understanding what happens during our childhood and how that creates not only psychological but also physical symptoms and further challenges in our lives. There is nothing a good counselor and therapist will miss to know and will be able to integrate in a holistic operating clinic.

    One of the most rewarding courses I have done. Originally choosing this course to accompany my Ayurveda Diploma, becoming a total package for nurturing body, mind and soul. I did not realise at the time how necessary and rewarding it would be for me personally. Suffering chronic fatigue for over 20 years, trying every treatment available, I finally found my answer as to not only why I got chronic fatigue, but also the cure. I don’t think there would be anyone who would not benefit from this course, for a rewarding career, to compliment your current business or for yourself personally. You will also be surrounded by beautiful like minded souls, establishing a special bond, nurturing, supporting and journeying with you while you learn and grow.

  3. Fumiko Sakai

    This course is unique and suits everyone who wants to explore a carrier as a counsellor or who wants to discover more about themselves. It could also benefit people already in familiar with other therapies by adding more skills and knowledge.
    This course let’s us nurture our inner growth while learning. It has become an amazing personal journey of all of us students.
    I prefer this type of learning in a real classroom rather than just online.
    This is the most rewarding investment of my life I have made. It is very challenging but I am committed and I am looking forward to the diploma course.

    This has been the best course I have ever undertaken both personally and professionally. The course has been way outside my comfort zone but so desperately needed in order to be able to change my life and certainly career direction. I have never known I needed to be doing something like I have this course. My intuition lead me here, and as they say, intuition will lead you to where you are meant to be! The course is a beautiful mix of mind, body and spirit and wonderfully supported. I have found answers to issues I have had all my life, when other professionals did not even touch the surface and told me I couldn’t rely on hope! It has been an amazing journey so far and so glad I took a leap of faith and followed my hearts calling.

    Reflecting on that first interview with Brenda, I can’t remember exactly what I said but I remember saying I wanted “the tools” to really understand what is happening within us and how to heal we can grow up through it .
    That could not have manifested in a more accurate and concise way.
    Everything else I have done in terms of study and personal development up until this point, has simply been concepts and nice ideas but this course has gone in deep, right to the core of us as beings on a neurobiological attachment level but also a deeply profoundly spiritual level. It has merged the world of science and spirituality in the most powerful way for healing .
    And it has unpacked me, every single layer, peel by peel.               
    It has unravelled me to my core.
    And there has been no where to hide.
    And even though what I have found has been incredibly overwhelming at times, I have been truly gifted with tools stay, not run, and to go in with compassion, curiosity, calmness and courage to all the parts that have felt so overwhelmed before and do it different this time .

    We have been taken on a journey within, to arrive back to the place we started and know ourselves, for the first time .(T S Elliot quote adapted)
    And from that place we have learned how to be in the World as friends, lovers, students and teachers and fellow travellers in a completely transformed way .
    There is no doubt that this will have a PROFOUND effect on you if you take this journey.
    And it will be the greatest gift you can give yourself, your family, your community and the World.

    I am so humbled and so grateful to have been given this gift. Thank you .

    I could give 10 stars to Brenda and this course if I could! I have absolutely loved the material, learning, growth and wisdom I have gained from attending the workshops and completing the assignments. Brenda, Catherine and Rosie have brought their wisdom over the last 30 years and created such a beautiful space for us to practice, be seen, heard and understood. I feel so much more competent as a Holistic Coach, who now uses Holistic Counselling therapies than I could have ever imagined! I highly recommend this course for personal and professional development. I’m so grateful that a course like this exists in Australia. It’s been truly life changing!

    Having done a few workshops with The Awakening Group before the Certificate course, I had no idea this course turns out to be the best training I have done so far. The amount of knowledge and content was taught is way beyond my expectation. This course has given me a chance for further healing in my journey and provides many insights of who I am that I wouldn’t have discovered on my own. My relationships with my partner and family also benefited from the training. Overall, this is a life-transforming experience that I will always be grateful to have. Thankful to all teachers for giving their best for this journey.

    I am happy to review the certificate of holistic Counselling course. It has had a profound and very positive effect on me.
    I marvel at the depth and power of this course. Firstly the structure is so professional, from timetable to provision and delivery of material, to student support, mentoring and encouragement. I am so impressed. As a venue for self discovery, awareness and healing this course provides the necessary tools, instructors and material for a fellow student to begin or continue their own soulful awakening journey, Secondly, in addition to ones own journey the training provides a solid base for the individual to establish a platform as a holistic counsellor, whilst also providing the student with the opportunity to continue into the Diploma of Holistic Counselling as an immediate follow on. I have enjoyed the journey, thus far, I cherish the support, interaction and friendship gained from and with fellow students. My thanks to Brenda and her dedicated team for maintaining and delivering a very high standard, quality course.

    This course has truly exceeded all my expectations and taken me on a journey of self discovery. I have not only learnt incredibly valuable processes and tools but my awareness, understanding and compassion for myself has enhanced and strengthened my relationships with family, friends and colleagues. I have found a tribe of like minded, amazing souls who share the desire for personal growth and who support each other with love, compassion and vulnerability. So impressed with the content, I have upgraded to the Diploma in order to deepen the knowledge and cement the practices we have learnt so that I can take these insights and techniques out into the community and support others in their own healing process with absolute confidence. Our trainers have shared their wisdom and knowledge and inspired me every step of the way. They demonstrate that true healing and transformation is available to any one who seeks and is willing to explore their limiting beliefs and re-frame their stories. This course is unique and I am so grateful that I decided to study with The Awakening Group

    If you are drawn to this course, do it!

    I had wanted to become a counsellor for many years, but I never felt ‘ready’. A space opened up in my life, and, although I still wasn’t sure whether it was the right time, I followed my gut.

    Still, my sense of doubt said, “Maybe counsellors are born and not made – maybe you just ‘have it’ or you don’t. Maybe my lack of confidence and certainty means it won’t be the right path for me after all.”

    Now I believe: if you have the interest, the intention, the passion, and the compassion, this course will teach you the tools to bring those precious gifts to your clients. And it will start by transforming your own life in ways you could not have imagined and didn’t know you needed.

    Best of all, you will be accompanied by a beautiful group of like-minded fellow travellers. Our cosy weekend sessions together intensified the learning in such an embodied way, something you simply cannot experience through an online or distance-education course.

    Follow your heart, and dive in!

    Originally I enrolled for this course as a small adjunct to my profession as TCM practitioner…WOW! Little did I know what a profound experience it would become and how positively it would impact my life. The course is thorough, thought provoking and authentic. True to its name it is also incredibly holistic in nature and is delivered by extraordinary teachers. Thank you so much to the teachers for this wonderful course

    I absolutely loved this course. At times I couldn’t believe that I was “studying” — the content and teaching is so engaging and fascinating that school feels like a pleasure, an adventure. This beautiful course and it’s wonderful teachers will facilitate your journey within, to discover your true nature and highest potential. A truly remarkable school for awakening your highest self and enlightening you from the thinking, entanglements and heaviness that block your bliss, so you can help others do the same. Plus, you will connect with a tribe of beautiful fellow travellers (your fellow students) on a deep and meaningful level. There’s certainly a lot of “work” to do, and it’s extremely testing at times, but worth it. It’s hard to put into words how transformative and life-changing this study is. Can not recommend it highly enough. Thank you Brenda and The Awakening Group.

  13. Deanne Joy Morey

    This course is amazing and I definitely recommend it to anyone willing to take on, change, emerge and embrace the challenges, new learnings and connecting with beautiful like minded people.
    This course has taught me many things and has bought about an opening that has developed a great healing within my family. Without this I would not have been able to face personal demons that have been in the background for many years.
    Thankyou for the connection with my ‘tribe’…. my other family.
    Immense emotion and happiness have been felt throughout the entire course. The modules have been so very informative and deeply resonating.
    My expectation doing this course was to learn as much as I can to be of help to others….little did I know what a profoundly life changing experience this would be.
    Thankyou so much Brenda for your understanding and caring throughout this course. As they say, there are no coincidences, things happen for a reason and I am truly grateful for ‘stumbling’ into this course.
    Many, many, many thanks to Brenda and The Awakening Group.

    I have opened my heart and mind to new concepts and ideas and consequently have become more self aware and have
    experienced personal growth as a result. I look forward to continuing on with my studies next year with a clear vision of a career change in my 70’s. It is so wonderful to feel so excited about my future. Forever grateful to Brenda and her amazing team.

    I had been searching for many years for a counselling course that aligned with my beliefs and values. When I discovered this course online and read the content I was in tears, ‘Yes, finally a course that speaks deeply to my heart!’ This year has been transformational for me. I have loved learning the science behind the concepts and tools and practising in a safe environment with fellow travellers (my classmates), who I now feel deeply connected with. The facilitators have been both professional and personable, delivering the information in fun and interesting ways. I can’t wait to continue on next year with the amazing Brenda and facilitators at The Awakening Group and my beautiful classmates.

    The Certificate in Holistic Counselling, has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding learning/life experiences for me. Brenda created a safe space where I was given the time and space to grow at my own pace, and discover where my passion lives. I feel greatful for the support to discover my passion for Sound Healing and EFT and to have been encouraged to incorporate it into my tool kit and actually do work that I am passionate about.

    The Certificate in Holistic Counselling has been a very enlightening and fascinating experience. The holistic approach is refreshing, uplifting and inspiring to the soul. Theories, skills and modalities that are covered are helpful personally and professionally. The journey of self-development that Brenda takes you on so supportively and lovingly is truly an awakening of mind, body and soul.

    This course has provided a wealth of resources and tools for personal healing as well as for use with clients. I can truly recommend this course, not only for the depth of knowledge gained – but the safe, supportive and healing environment in which it is delivered. Brenda and the other teachers have a truly amazing energy, and put so much into the course. You will work alongside such amazing humans, and form deep connections. I have learnt so much over the months, and I’m so grateful I signed up. I remember reading these reviews when I was thinking about signing up – and they helped guide me to make the bold jump to sign up… maybe this is the sign that someone else will see that helps them take that next step! 🙂

    I am grateful for the decision I made to enroll in this course and for the people I had the opportunity to connect with along the way. There is a wealth of knowledge in the classroom and in all the teachers you interact with that will undoubtedly widen the lens through which you view yourself and the world. If you intend to take this course for your own personal journey, it is absolutely suitable. If you are already a counsellor, it will without a doubt add more tools to your tool kit. I am excited to see what doors will open because of what I learned during this course.
    Thank you Brenda and the rest of the team at The Awakening Group!

    I start this review with word of caution – this course may change how you see your self, life, family, relationships, and friendships forever, as it has done so for me, in the most deeply satisfying way.

    A door was opened to invaluable knowledge and tools that I not only utilise on a daily basis, but can already see the immediate effects it has had on how I move through both my personal and professional life.

    I would venture to say this course would suit any curious and open-minded individual from all walks of life, whether it be for professional or personal development.

    I gained a deeper understanding of human behaviour, trauma, relationships, family, communication, and the respective simple yet profound modalities and tools to awaken myself, and perhaps future clients, to the truths of those topics.

    This course gave me access to the decades of wisdom offered by an impressive suite of accomplished trainers, as well as tried and tested modalities from a wide range of internationally renowned industry leaders. The effort, time and energy Brenda and the trainers put into the course is second to none, especially felt during this challenging time during COVID-19.

    It was a joy to connect, learn, practice and share with like-minded students in a well facilitated, safe container. These heart-felt connections I’m certain will continue for years to come.

    Without a shadow of a doubt, I am deeply grateful that I happened upon this course and to Brenda for founding it – it is incredible value for the life-long skills it imparts, and the ripples will surely be felt not only in your own life, but to all lives touched by your own.

    Join the next cohort – you won’t regret it.

    This course was recommended to me by a friend and practitioner. I have been astounded at the amount of knowledge I have built throughout the course. This being a new field to me, I have learned so much. All the trainers were amazing with such incredible energy to pass on their own learnings. The tools I have been taught will be a part of my life. Not only has it opened me up to myself but also to those around me.

    I felt called to this course after my own life crisis in my physical health, and I was searching for something to give meaning and hope, and this course certainly did that. The in person classes were profoundly powerful and emotional, and I had so many “ah-ha” moments throughout. It was such a shame that COVID stopped us from experiencing more in person, but the online classes were also well taught. The trainers were all so experienced, and had so much knowledge to give. I’ve learnt so much about how to navigate my life and listen with more empathy, and to truly understand other’s and myself so much more deeply.

    If you’re looking for something incredibly empowering and touching, then look no further. You won’t be disappointed!

    I found the course interesting, challenging, and rewarding. I learnt a lot and it gave me a good grounding in the basics. It really made me think, and I liked how it enabled me to interact with people through the practical work, even though the majority has been online this year, due to COVID. Brenda is an excellent teacher, facilitator and counsellor and it’s been invaluable watching how she works.

    This course has brought me tremendous personal growth and an in-depth discovery of human behaviour, trauma, relationships, family, communication and much more. I have always been very drawn to self improvement and and human behaviour but never thought it was possible to learn such a vast amount of information in such a short amount of time. I could not recommend this course enough for anyone who wants to embark on this beautiful journey. Brenda is an incredible facilitator and I am extremely grateful to have learnt so much from her. An extremely powerful course. I look forward to continuing on to the Diploma.

    Such a comprehensive course! I searched for a while to find a course that teaches with a holistic approach, and I have learnt so many useful tools that have supported me in the journey of life. Brenda teaches passionately and supportively, demonstrating in real time the techniques she is teaching. The material in both the online classroom and manuals is comprehensive and something I will continue to refer back to over time. There is something about the people this course attracts – I have met many beautiful like minded fellow students and always look forwards to catching up in class. I’m so glad I courageously dived into enrolling – it was a last minute decision and it has definitely altered my life direction in a positive way.

    No words will or could describe the journey I have been on with this course this year. It has opened my eyes and heart to more and more of myself, my behaviours, my patterns and my beliefs. I cannot recommend this course enough. It is passionately and lovingly lead by the incredible Brenda and her team. With the course being holistic in nature it attracts likeminded individuals who are willing to go within to find the authenticity of their humanness so you also get the opportunity to make wonderful friendships. I’m so looking forward to the diploma next year and continuing to learn more and more. So GO! GO!! on an inward journey that will change your life for you and your loved ones.

    This course has provided me not only with counselling tools, but with tools for LIFE! What an incredible, and life changing journey. Thank you Brenda for providing this essential wisdom in such a brilliant course.

    This course has helped me become a deeper listener. I have learnt more about the power of a quiet confident presence for myself and my clients. I have gained great insights in the depth of human behaviour that impacts decision and choices made both in the now and in the past. I have understood that there are many deeper aspects of human existence that drives us and keeps us alive. Becoming aware of human feeling and needs has given me an understanding of what we are motivated by. Overall I have understood, that our lives are layered into events and generations that make us who we are today and we are never alone but part of the great circle of life.

    It is a great course. It not only teaches you what you need to know to be a counsellor, it also guides you through the process of becoming that person. It enables a lot of personal growth.

    This course is life-changing. I have leant so much throughout this course already and it has made me understand myself a whole lot deeper which is then rippling out into my personal and professional relationships and strengthening these. Even if you aren’t wanting to be a counsellor/therapist, this course is highly recommended for your own self-development.
    I am excited about what is yet to come in the Diploma course

    So amazing!!! I was drawn to this course a few years ago but I think a part of me knew that it wasn’t time and I wasn’t quite ready to delve into some of my deeper issues and trauma. I am so glad that I decided to revisit this training a few years down the track and actually commit to it. I did this course to be of greater service to others, but more importantly, to learn more about myself. I’ve laughed, cried, been triggered and had mini-breakdowns over this time and it’s all been so uncomfortable yet so worthwhile. I know thanks to this course I’m a changed person and it has definitely brought so much growth, healing and loving awareness back into my life and my relationships. I will forever be grateful to Brenda for sharing her genius with the world and for lighting the way for so many of us.

    This course is definitely exceeding my expectations. The holistic embodied approach has allowed me to really integrate and embody the techniques and practices and I have found that the results are really showing in my daily life, in my relationships and how I relate to my emotions, patterns and belief systems. I love Brenda’s teaching style as she weaves her therapeutic approach throughout delivering the content, displaying the work in action. I am very happy I chose the course, I feel the changes and shifts have been life changing as well as learning so much knowledge and skills. I am excited to see how the journey unfolds for the diploma to come.

    Words cannot ever describe what this course truly provides and empowers within you.

    I was searching for the right course for me and not just another course driven by a purely academic mindset or approach.
    From the very first class I’ve learnt more about myself than any course I’ve previously attended. (And there’s been a few). Sure, you learn techniques and theory, but this course isn’t just about that. It provides many ways and opportunities to not only work with what you know, but more importantly, to discover aspects of Self you didn’t even know existed. Hello Family Constellations!

    Brenda is an amazing, funny, down to earth person, highly skilled and knowledgeable and has assembled an all star cast of facilitators well versed in their area of expertise. They walk their talk!

    You’ll also develop beautiful relationships with diverse, like-minded colleagues who you’ll look forward to seeing every class to laugh, share, practice and listen to their unique journey. TAG provides the perfect ecosystem to become the counsellor you wish to be 😊

    The only question to ask yourself is: Are you ready to discover who you truly are?

    This course has benefitted me in all areas of my life. I had no idea going in how life changing it would be for me. The tools provided throughout the course have and will continue to serve and support me throughout my journey. This has been one of the most challenging and rewarding things I have ever done and I am forever grateful to have experienced such fruitful learning.
