Choosing a school is not always easy so we’ve included answers to the most important questions you should ask in order to be an informed student.



Be a transformational agent in your own life and in the lives of others. Our therapeutic counselling training program is called Practitioners Training (PRAC) and provides you with the knowledge, skills and ability to be an effective therapeutic counsellor for individuals and groups.

Our Transpersonal Psychology program gives you an experience of the emotional territory that you would have your future clients experience by using your life as the curriculum in the first year. Many schools do not use this framework.

In addition to teaching mainstream psychology, we have integrated spiritual and metaphysical perspectives to fully understand the dimensions and the potential of the human condition. Students grow on a personal level and increase self-awareness while learning academically.

Upon completion of Clearmind’s requirements, students qualify to apply for registration in Canada and the United Kingdom (including Ireland). In Canada, graduates can apply with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists (ACCT) or the Canadian Professional Counsellor’s Association (CPCA) as ‘Registered Professional or Therapeutic Counsellors’ and will receive a Diploma in ’Transpersonal Counselling Psychology’. UK graduates can apply to the National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP).
