Do you remember.....

What inspired you to learn about Spirituality / Metaphysics in the first place?

Did you see beneficial results in your life?

Do you think others would find that knowledge helpful too?


Learn how to share those insights, by empowering others and working professionally with clients as a Metaphysical Counsellor.

You have valuable knowledge that the world needs to hear

We only need to look around briefly at the world - to see people in pain, people living in conflict & drama, in their homes, families & workplaces - essentially people feeling disempowered, 'at odds with life' and not living their fullest potential.

These individuals need help - waking up from the unconscious patterns which hold them back.
They need help - learning how to transform the challenges before them - into soul lessons.
They need help - understanding how to use the Universal Laws & Principles constructively.
They need inspiration and empowering methods to stop recreating painful cycles and reclaim more inner peace.

In short everyone has the means within themselves to enjoy a happier life and feel more alligned to their True Self.
They just need encouragement and a little 'know-how'


In order for this to happen YOU can play a vital role in being a 'Catalyst for Transformation' or an 'Agent of Insight'.
To shed light on the areas where people feel caught and show them how to, transform the challenges they face and unlock the deeper lessons that life is trying to teach them.


Because without this knowledge and ability - they go round in circles and are unable to move forward or master life's journey.

(Which impacts not just their life experience but the lives of those around them, including their children too).



So where does Metaphysical Counsellor training come into this ?


How can Metaphysics help you - to help others?


Firstly this training is in 2 parts

Focusses on the fundamentals of Metaphysics and your personal growth, so you clear away blocks, understand how to APPLY the teachings to your own life and see results.
This is an important first step in deepening understanding and integrating with prior knowledge, so that when you become a Practitioner, you feel confident to speak from your own truth and experience, because you have 'first-hand' experience and understand how Metaphysics works.


  • Part 2. The MSEC Metaphysics Practitioner Training (starts September '23)
    Here we build on the understanding already gained in the Foundation Course and go much much deeper, learning effective new skills & techniques, developing your ability to analyse client case histories and bring the principles to life so you can see how to APPLY THEM to assist yourself and others.

  • Throughout the training we help you have greater integration within yourself, so that you gain insight & heal some of your own triggers, (which really helps us speak from experience when we start working with others).
  • You will learn listening & communication skills, so that you feel confident to explain the fundamental principles & laws to newcomers and understand how to work WITH a persons belief system to help them gain fresh insights (valuable skills for anyone)
  • You will have insight to assist people at different states & stages along their Spiritual path, people from different religions & those with no faith at all
  • You will develop the ability to be able to diagnose from a clients case history the areas where they feel caught and explore deeper to identify the underlying causations, the soul lessons and the hidden dynamics.
  • You will discover how to create a customised treatment plan adapted to a client's unique needs, their specific situation and level of awareness. So that they feel heard and together you work on the issues which trouble them most, and encourage them to look again at aspects of their lives and understand from a deeper perspective.


  • You will nurture & develop the skills & understanding to help people at different levels of upsetness, learn how to help them handle their emotions differently, without pulling away or resisting. Then when they are ready, help them see through the emotions and understand the key life lesson the upset was inviting them to learn.

  • You will be practiced with a range of effective tools & techniques to help the client unlock where they feel caught, gain breakthroughs, help them feel more empowered, find more inner peace, see results & changed effects.
  • All the whilst working on a Spiritual level too, to gently help the client wake up and gain new realisations about their True Nature.

As you can see its a comprehensive training programme which will provide you with valuable life skills, however you choose to use  this knowledge.
And of course if you choose to work professionally counselling clients, you have the potential to earn an additional income too!!


You will be trained how to conduct sessions in person and worldwide via phone/video calls.

This is an exclusive and UNIQUE training course, only open to students who have completed the full
MSEC Metaphysics Foundation Course.

More information about the Foundation course here


Part 2  - MSEC Metaphysical Practitioner Training Course

Only open to graduates of the MSEC Foundation course, here we take the principles and practice already learnt and transpose it to a Holistic Counselling setting, so you can assist others.
Metaphysical Counselling is an holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. When we are out of alignment with our True Self we experience conflict and difficulties.
Clients seek counselling when they feel stuck by a problem. Yet no two individuals are the same, they are all at different stages of understanding, all have different histories, different levels of distress, emotion & spiritual awareness.

What's different about the Metaphysical approach is that you are trained in a wide range of versatile methods and techniques, so you are able to be flexible and adapt the counselling sessions to the needs of each individual client.

For example
  • If a person has no spiritual beliefs and feels stuck in life - there are methods which can help bring more ease and flow
  • If the individual feels unable to get past grief or loss - there are various approaches which can assist when coping with change.
  • If the client is open to spiritual ideas, yet feels frustrated by a repeating pattern - there are tools to unlock the pattern.
  • If someone is struggling with a conflict at work or with a family member - there are techniques to uncover the root causes, reveal the life lessons and also tools to assist in bringing about a more peaceful resolution

Metaphysical Counselling is a very versatile approach, it can be used to re-empower a client on a wide range of issues and steadily guide them  (at their own pace) back towards their True Self.

The result is - they have deeper understanding of life's ups and downs, they feel more aligned within themselves and with life, thereby experiencing a greater sense of wholeness and peace
The course is recognised and approved by the Metaphysical Society for the Expansion of Consciousness (MSEC) and the BRCP (British Register of Complementary Practitioners).

Successful Practitioners are able to set up in private practice and offer Holistic Counselling services to the public and apply to join both the MSEC and BRCP (British Register of Complementary Practitioners).


Recent participants, even those who have completed other training, have been amazed at how much they have learnt, how the courses exceeded their expectations and how many new insights they gained.

Who Are We? And Why Listen To Us?

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 become a Metaphysical Counsellor, you will find these principles are both satisfying and rewarding to learn, because once you understand them and know how to apply these principles, you can use them over and over again, to cope with relationship issues, health problems, disagreements at work, self esteem issues, in fact with any and every area of your life.

This training is not just theory or "spiritual loveliness" it 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.


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 Counsellor training was a revelation, because it helped me find ways to unravel my stressful thoughts and start loving my 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 so 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 counsellors.


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



Quotes from a previous participants


“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 Metaphysical counselling sessions were like a light had been shone on my very muddled and hectic life.
After the first session 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 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’.

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….”

General Information


This is a pro-active training
In order to complete the Part 2 Practitioner course, students are required to take out student insurance, complete reading assignments and regular homework, to complete practice client case histories, to receive personal Metaphysical Counselling and take an exam at the end of the course.


With regards to homework - for the Part 1 Foundation course, you will probably need to set aside approx 3-4 hours per week for the course content and to take part in Q&A webinar, and complete the reflective assignment for the week.

For the Part 2 Practitioner course, you will probably need to invest approx. 5-6 hours per week to course work, background reading etc. in addition to class time. Towards the end of the course, this will increase if you are completing case studies and revising. The work load is significant but not excessive, especially if it is completed regularly and at a steady pace.
The Foundation Course is usually completed within 6 -8 months, and the follow on Practitioner course usually takes 12 - 14 months The whole training is spread over time to enable students to complete the required assignments, integrate the new understanding and undergo further personal growth.

The Practitioner training is scheduled to follow on September 2023, after successful completion of the Foundation training which starts in January



For now we recommend starting with the Foundation course and seeing if it resonates for you.

Once you see how it works in your own life, you will then feel more confident in sharing it with others...

"The Course material has been put together very well, each topic following on nicely from the previous one. Useful exercises, meditations and articles. Tutor support all the way."

"So glad I have taken this course. The subjects were in-depth and thought provoking. Each topic has been an eye-opener and has changed my understanding in a positive and beautiful way of who we really are. At times I have had to adjust my original way of thinking and this has been challenging but it all makes sense to me and I now understand what it is I have been searching for all my life; I now feel I am truly on the right spiritual path."


"This course has been a journey, the most important journey that I have ever taken, the journey to My Self. It has been done in such a subtle and gentle way that I am still amazed."

Frequently Asked Questions...

Exactly What Is Metaphysics?
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.
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" RL. London


The 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 courses are mostly complete within themselves and full course notes are provided. There are course books which accompany both courses, which you would need to purchase approx £30 - £50 (full details are given, once the course starts)
Apart from that there is nothing else you need to purchase for the Foundation training.

We recognise 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 optional in Foundation training, 6 sessions are required for Counsellor training, along with Student Insurance (usually £20 or less). 


What if I decide this is not for me?
We offer a 14 day money back guarantee. After that we don't offer refunds. However if you actively participate in the course for 30 days and decide its not for you, 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, please free to reach out to us either email 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 training?
Certainly not, if we all waited for that, nothing would ever happen and we certainly wouldn't be practicing. No the challenges you 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.   S
o don't hesitate sign up!"
