Diploma in Practical Spirituality and Wellness

This trains you to become a Spiritual Companion - facilitating spiritual health in a person centred and holistic way. Great for personal growth, setting up an individual practice or adding on to your existing ‘helping’ vocation. I love this program, created by the Spiritual Companions Trust pioneered by Dr William Bloom and now accredited by Crossfields. I have been teaching it for the last 10 years in its pre-accredited form. As a wholesome course covering authentic spiritual development and psychological growth, I find it like no other - and now it also leads to a professional qualification.

Learn about the health benefits of spirituality, develop your own spiritual health practice and help others.

Picture of Naomi Duffield

It’s rare for anyone to find time to explore their health and wellness issues with a trained professional...

As a Whole Health Coach, Transpersonal Counsellor and Spiritual Companion I have a unique and comprehensive training that enables me to support you in all aspects of wellness - body, mind, heart and soul.

Most approaches work with the individual in dissected parts, eg. either physical health or psychological health. I am able to work with you as an integrated whole, helping you holistically as you grow into the person you long to be - and witnessing you flourish. My clients have found that this approach creates a much larger impact than they originally anticipated
