Debbie Austin

After a degree in Human Psychology, then a background in business and teaching. I realised there was more to life, more to the Universe and more to people. So I started exploring Spirituality, initially for my own personal interest and growth, however I loved it so much it soon turned into a career as a Metaphysician.


I trained with Christine King of the Metaphysical Society and qualified as an MSEC Metaphysical Practitioner in 1996. And have been offering counselling services to the public ever since. No two people are the same and the solutions for unfolding the life lessons within a situation and restoring peace, are different every time. It is particularly satisfying helping people discover for themselves, their connection to Life and their inner resourcefulness.


People often want to discover more and understand how and why Metaphysics works, so this naturally led me onto the MSEC Teacher Training courses and the founding of the School of Metaphysics in 1998. I have been offering MSEC Metaphysics Foundation and Practitioner training courses to enthusiastic students ever since. The aim has always been to help people empower themselves and find their own inner connection.


After qualifying as an online teacher trainer I started to adapt the MSEC courses into an online format, so that they could be enjoyed by students living near or far, who do not have access to one of the MSEC training facilities or who enjoy the convenience of online training.


The School of Metaphysics now offers a range of online and attendance based courses, taught by myself and fellow MSEC qualified Metaphysical Teachers


I also work as an MSEC supervisor and an active member of the MSEC committee. 

However having said all that I am still a student of Life and this wonderful Universe....

The Metaphysical Society (MSEC)

The MSEC was founded in 1993, by Christine King. Its aim was to advance Metaphysical and Spiritual studies and to develop a Holistic Counselling Therapy, based upon Spiritual Principles.
This pioneering therapy and its training route have since been recognised by the ICNM.
The MSEC serves as a training faculty and also as a network for qualified and registered Metaphysical Practitioners, Facilitators and Teachers.
The register is located on the MSEC website www.metaphysicalsociety.com along with a list of the MSEC core beliefs.
Debbie Austin, Elaine Tudor and Lynne Wilson are registered and qualified MSEC Practitioners and Teachers. They are authorised to teach the MSEC Foundation and Practitioner Courses and also to Supervise Practitioners after they have qualified. They are also active members of the MSEC committee, along with several colleagues.

The Institute of Complementary and Natural Medicine (ICNM)

The ICNM is a regulatory body which monitors training and standards of practice within the field of Complementary Medicine. 
Established in 1989, it also offers a register of practitioners in the UK, i.e. the British Register of Complementary Practitioners (BRCP).
The MSEC Practitioner and Facilitator Training routes have been recognised by the ICNM, these are the only ones in the UK to be accredited this way.
This means that upon successful completion of the MSEC Practitioner Course, qualified therapists can apply to join the BRCP. i.e. the British Register of Complimentary Practioners.
