Sweet Track Counselling

starlingsOur vision is to create a centre for psycho-spiritual education. Drawing upon many traditions rather than subscribing to any one path, our core ethos is to respect and encompass each other’s differences.

The centre’s courses aim to empower people’s spiritual identity and expression.

Sweet Track offers quality professional training to counsellors and healers, with a nationally recognised accredited qualification.

As the centre evolves and expands, different teachers and students will offer their talents and skills in response to the spiritual needs of the time.
