Learn How to Transform Life's Challenges
into Opportunities for Awakening...
Imagine for a moment, how life would be different if
Now isn't that worth learning about?
Have you ever felt frustrated and overwhelmed by all the information that's out there and you're still not sure where to start...
Have you spent thousands on workshops, books, courses and therapies and still don't experience consistent results?
Have you ever spent countless hours affirming, reading, meditating, chanting, praying etc. but still aren't feeling as consistently peaceful as you know is possible, because your energy level flip/flops between highs & lows?
Or have you done all this good work and still feel troubled by doubt or find some people have the ability to press your buttons!!!
And make you feel back at square one :(
We hear from sincere spiritual seekers everyday who feel frustrated about their lack of progress,
people who don't understand why despite their insights & efforts, they still sometimes feel stuck or confused.
It usually boils down to four main obstacles that are stop indiciduals from reaching their potential:
You buy every self-help book/course/workshop that you find, or eagerly watch video after video on YouTube, and then feel overwhelmed by what you need to do first. And
because the training's not personalised, its unclear how to apply these ideas to your life, your problems, your relationships etc. So you end up feeling worse or suffering from
analysis paralysis & procrastination, then the whole cycle repeats again.
You've probably had wonderful spiritual insights and realisations along the way, and maybe you have 'pieces of the jigsaw' from lots of different spiritual teachers, different disciplines and gurus, but no complete roadmap. So you're not quite sure how they all fit together, which areas are most important to focus on, at which time, and where gaps in understanding lie
Unless the process of Spiritual Awakening is fully understood, you don't have the overall roadmap, so don't know which stage you are at, what you need, which skills to develop, what to let go of, what to do first and then what to do next etc. So its easy to get lost & discouraged if you don't have a step by step system to guide you, which builds on what you already know & helps identify where you're currently caught, explains how to uncover & unravel some of the limiting beliefs holding you back. And (most importantly) a process which helps you build trust & clarity, as you get more in touch with your inner wisdom and authentic self.
Especially if you've studied alone, you've probably not had sufficient support, encouragement and training around you, or opportunities to ask questions, or share these ideas with like-minded individuals. People who understand the challenge of balancing spiritual understanding, with grounded, practical action in your everyday life.
These 4 obstacles can be incredibly frustrating, we've seen good people with sincere hearts, courageous people who are 'transformation agents' within their families, friendships, workplace & communities, struggling and finding this process harder than it needs be, simply because they don't have the bigger picture or fully understand the process.
Thats why we are making these teachings available again, because we all need a helping hand along the way.

“One of the most transformational courses you can come across.... you will never see life or others from the same perspective you had before...things that used to upset you now don't.... This course is the best gift you can give to yourself."
Hello there, my name is Debbie Austin.
I'm the founder of the School of Metaphysics and along with my colleagues we teach the fundamental principles which help people unravel conflicts, dissolve limiting
beliefs and find ways of feeling more peaceful, connected and empowered in their life.
No matter whether you choose to take this training for your own personal growth or to later become a Metaphysical Counsellor, you will find these principles are both satisfying and rewarding to learn, because once you understand and know how to apply these principles, you can use them over and over again, to cope better with relationship issues, health problems, disagreements at work, abundance challenges, self esteem issues, in fact with any and every area of your life.
This course is NOT JUST theory or "spiritual loveliness", it is "no-nonsense" training GROUNDED IN DAY-TO-DAY LIFE and day-to-day experiences. We help you see yourself and your life experiences from a fresh perspective.
I first started studying Metaphysics because I knew there was more to life than just this physical realm, I wanted to understand how the Universe works & how to
feel more peaceful within myself. I also wanted to know -
Why I still felt caught in repeating patterns?
Why some people still ‘pressed my buttons’ and had the power to upset me?
Why I kept 'tripping myself up' - despite my understanding and efforts?
To me the Metaphysical Foundation & Counsellor training was a revelation, because it helped me find ways to unravel my stressful thoughts and start loving life again....even when I'm not perfect.
I set up the School of Metaphysics back in 1998, shortly after qualifying as an MSEC Metaphysics Teacher because I knew other people would find this information useful
in their lives too. It was the best decision I ever made.
Fast-forward to today, the school has grown and we've had the privilege of assisting thousands of counselling clients find more inner peace & helped thousands of
students discover for themselves their connection to life and their inner resourcefulness, and those who felt inspired, have even gone on to set up in practice as Metaphysical
So we speak from experience - we've been there, we've done it, we've seen these principles & techniques in action - we know they work.
PLUS we are not some large impersonal training organisation, where no one even knows your name, we treat everyone as individuals and as tutors we gain satisfaction from helping you 'get it' too and start seeing tangible results in your life.
“Since I embarked in the study of Metaphysics, I could have never imagined that I was starting one of the most exciting journeys of my life...the journey back to
myself. I came to Metaphysics as a deeply resentful, angry, frustrated person that had no friends and a marriage that was going to sink. Today, after the Foundation Course and the Practitioner
course, I am a person with new and restored relationships, I have friends, I have a lovely marriage, I know my children love me and I have a new career. I am less reactive, less judgmental, more
loving and forgiving. Today, I have found the purpose of my life. And all that has been thank you to this course. There are no words to express my gratitude.”
“The foundation course is a lot of fun and will truly help anyone that seeks a better way in life to finally understand the true cause of all their upsets
and the true solution to undoing them. This isn’t about giving away your control, it’s about reclaiming it and recognising that you are the author of your own script and that you get to
choose your experience no matter what may appear to be occurring on the ‘outside’."
“Metaphysics was like a light had been shone on my very muddled and hectic life.
Very quickly I felt like a weight was being lifted and by the end I felt I had a far better understanding of my own self and
how my reactions to certain issues in my life had help to create my muddle.”
"The online course is wonderful, packed full with meaningful and helpful content and delivered in a manageable way to fit around your schedule. The highlight for me is the camaraderie that is developed amongst your fellow course mates that is something to be cherished as we witness each other’s subtle and profound changes over the course timeline. You will learn new tools and techniques that will give you plenty of “aha” moments.
Keep an open mind, be willing to question everything you thought was ‘true’ about you, be willing to be ‘wrong’ and be willing to believe you're worth it and that
you deserve to be happy!
Go for it!”
“I would recommend every bit of the School of Metaphysics….”
"The structure of the course has been well organised, each topic following on nicely from the previous one.
Useful exercises, meditations, videos and articles. Tutor support all the way."
This course focuses on your personal journey and deepening your own understanding of the spiritual awakening process, unhooking some of the areas where you still feel caught and clarifying the
It is studied fully online usually in 24 weeks over 8 months, because it takes time & regular attention to integrate this understanding & really 'get it', so you feel confident in what you know. Participants who successfully complete the full 24 week training and associated homestudy, gain an MSEC certificate of completion, in recognition of their efforts.
If you wished to continue your studies with us, so that you could work professionally with others, completion of this Foundation course is required inorder to progress to Metaphysical Counsellor or Facilitator qualifications next year.
However at this stage we just recommend starting with the Foundation course and see how it resonates for you....
Now is the time to get started.
Learn from the comfort of your home or work space - our online learning system is easy...
|COURSE OUTLINE - TOPICS WE COVER & SO MUCH MORE|
How the course works
The Foundation course is fully online and hosted on an easy-to-navigate private learning system.
The course content is split into manageable segments, with each class focussing on a different topic each week.
We designed the training so that you can conveniently fit learning these wonderful topics around your weekly schedule. The course site is open 24/7 so you can watch, read or listen to the content
and participate in class discussions at times that suit you during the week.
NB. This is not one of those large, impersonal, online courses - your understanding matters to us.
So you will get individual attention from a course mentor and within the course there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions, gain feedback and explore these principles in depth. We encourage a friendly, supportive atmosphere so you build rapport with your fellow classmates.
If for any reason you are unable to attend a Q&A session, you can submit your question beforehand and the recordings will be posted in the online classroom, so you can watch later or study
from wherever you are in the world
Please be aware that this is a pro-active training programme, not just a course to download & stay on your hard drive. In order to
experience transformation in some of the key areas that matter to you, you need to be willing to participate on a regular basis and we will support you in that journey.
To ensure that the training is 'bite sized' & achievable for most people, the information is paced, so you don't get overwhemed and its easy to keep up. This also means that you have the time
& opportunities to apply this new knowledge to your life and start seeing results.
The course is split into 24 weeks training spread over 8 months
January - July 2020
If you are away or unable to attend training for a particular week, just inform your course mentor and they will make arrangements to assist you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Exactly What Is
Why is it so useful to understand?
At the back of all creation there is one Universal Power, which is our True Nature. This energy works through set laws and principles. When we are at one with this power, life flows, we are
supported by the Universe, there is ease, harmony, love and a sense of wellbeing. We feel 'at home' within ourself, engaged WITH life and its easier to interact more confidently with others.
Happiness, inner peace and joy are the natural side effects of this connection.
However when we feel out of allign with this power, we feel separate, alone, conflicted within ourself and disconnected from others. Life feels against us. When this happens we unwittingly create further conflict, drama, confusion and struggle, relationships become more challenging and life feels an uphill struggle.
Metaphysically we work on 3 levels
1. Deepening your sense of connection with that one Universal Power, so you learn how to stay connected for longer.
2. We explain the laws and principles, so you have a clear understanding of the hidden dynamics and how it works.
3. We show you how to unhook from patterns, unravel false beliefs and conflicts which have held you back and keep pulling you away from your True Nature.
i.e. we empower you, to empower yourself
What is different about your approach?
It's not just theory and it's not just "spiritual loveliness" at the mind and spirit level.
This training is GROUNDED IN DAY TO DAY LIFE and day to day experiences. We help you see yourself and your life experiences from a fresh perspective.
This training deals with the ways we interact with life, not just about developing more peace within ourself, the Universe and with those nearest and dearest to us,
but also about learning lessons from
- The people who ‘press our buttons’
- The issues that still frustrate us
- The people who still have the power to upset us
- The patterns we can't get beyond
- And the areas where we keep tripping ourself up - despite our understanding and efforts.
It really is about re-awakening our ability to Love Life again… even if we’re not perfect :)
This is also an eclectic approach, so you are introduced to many different teachings and philospohies, each with their own merit. Also as wonderful as some Spiritual teachings are, they don't always help us make that leap and explain how we can apply THEIR principles to OUR life, with OUR past, OUR situation and OUR struggles. This is where Metaphysics training can be a great help (especially if you have been studying alone for a while). And where support from a group and individual attention from course mentors and an experienced tutor can help fill in any gaps in understanding.
Also the Metaphysics we teach here, is a unique Holistic Counselling therapy, with a psychological/spiritual approach to problems. It helps people understand and unravel the false beliefs which block their inner peace. And shows empowering ways to meet and resolve challenges. (We cover this in the year 2 Practitioner course)
Plus this is not a large impersonal online training course, we deliberately keep classes to a manageable size, so you get to know your classmates, you can develop friendships
within the group and you get personal attention from the tutor & support team.
To us you are an individual and your progress matters - this style of approach is becoming extremely rare.
How can it help me? Will Metaphysics Change my Life?
Some people find their lives are fundamentally changed by studying these courses. However for most people the biggest gift they gain, is that it transforms the way they view life. Issues which previously would have affected them, they are now at peace with. They feel less fearful and experience a quiet inner confidence in the way they approach life.
A Recent Practitioner Student said
"I can't find anything in the world that can be so down to earth as the study of Metaphysics.
There is no other subject that teaches you-
why you feel stuck in life,
why you keep repeating the same patterns,
why you keep attracting the same relationships,
why your life is a mess!
But, not only explains why...but most importantly....
HOW to solve these issues so you can become a more fulfilled, happy and joyous person. If only Metaphysics was taught in schools from elementary all the way to College. AF, Cork, Ireland
Who are these courses ideal for?
The Foundation course is suitable
for anyone keen to understand the hidden dynamics behind life and relationships. Especially if you are fed up with dramas and struggles, and want to transform the way you feel about yourself, your
relationship to others, life, love and the Universe.
A Past Practitioner said
"Its a great grounding for life and I can't imagine how I would've coped with all the recent challenges I've faced, without this understanding"
The optional Practitioner Training, is particularly suited to therapists or complementary practitioners, wishing to expand the range of therapies they offer to their clients. However that course is only open to people who have first completed this Foundation training. Some people continue on to this 2nd year course for their own personal growth and understanding, others use the skills they gain in their current work role and some use this training and the qualification as a stepping stone to a new career, offering Holistic Counselling services to the general public. The choice is yours and there is no need to make up your mind until the end of the Foundation course.
Is the course complete or do I need anything more?
The course is complete within itself and full course notes are provided. There are 3 course books which accompany the training, which you would need to purchase (full details will be given, once the course starts)
Apart from that there is nothing else you need to purchase, however we understand that some people may want to deepen their experience and use the course as a framework to help them work through some personal issues and so additional private counselling sessions are available (if required).
What if I decide this is not for
We don't offer refunds, however if you actively participate in the course for 60 days and it is still not for you. Let us know, speak with your course mentor and we will cancel any future installments or return the unused proportion if you took advantage of the early bird rate. We want you to be happy with the training and get the most from it, so if you have any questions about whether it would be a good fit for you, feel free to reach out to us either email firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the link at the bottom of the page to schedule a time to talk with one of our team.
Do I need to be sorted in my life before I start this
Certainly not, if we all waited for that, nothing would ever happen and we certainly wouldn't be practicing. No the challenges we currently face, are good fuel for the course, bring them along, we can work with them. This is how everyone learns the techniques and what works best for certain situations. Also you will soon discover that you are not alone with these challenges, everyone has some too.
However what we do suggest is that you are in a relatively settled phase in your life e.g. you're not deeply affected by major trauma or life changes. It is simply because these are
training courses, where we need to cover the curriculum and meet the needs of the whole class. So if you personally felt in a very unsettled space, it might be wisest to get your needs met first with
some individual attention, such as Metaphysical counselling before you study the course.
A Recent Foundation Student said
"I would recommend every bit of the School of Metaphysics.
I really did not know what to expect when I started the Modules but nothing could have prepared me for the most positive life changing event.
If you want to go on and practice professionally as the old saying goes 'A Healer can't be a Healer until they have Healed themselves'.
If you are already looking at the course that means its your path and you are ready. Even if you don't go on and practice, your life, inner peace and all your relationships will be so much more positive. The course tutors are wonderfully supportive and nothing is too much trouble. So don't hesitate sign up!"
