This training is done on behalf of AMO (NPO) as using ART as modality is the most effective way to work inter-culturally and especially over language barriers and as their is no training in this field available; AMO requested us to start this training to enable the work they do and to reach their goals.

This training is open to AMO volunteers and to people that want to gain the knowledge to do Arts counselling as many counsellors work inter-cultural.


After completing all the required short courses for this course our students can possibly continue with a Masters degree through an American university. Our students can either go overseas and study through them. (More info is available on request) or alternatively we are in negotiations with the university to start an online Masters program in South Africa. This is however a timely process. A minimum of twenty-five students will be required for the program to continue.

Once our students (if from South Africa) have completed their Masters program in Expressive Art Therapy, they still are requird to apply for accreditation of their qualification from SAQA in South Africa and thereafter for registration as Art Therapist at the HPCSA, meeting all their requirements. As there is currently no Masters program in South Africa; there is no other alternative available. Students in other countries have to familiarize themselves with the requirements in the country they want to work in. We are available to advice on this. In the US non-licensed counsellors are allowed to practice and work at organizations for example schools as in South Africa.


In South Africa our training is an entry/mid level training (depending on how many short courses you complete) based on the completion of several short modules in Arts Counselling.

Our students register and -work as Holistic Counsellors- in South Africa at the CCSA/ASCHP. (The ASCHP is a board registered with SAQA with the right to register Holistic Counsellors in SA.)

We are currently working towards SETA and SAQA accreditation in SA.


(Counsellors in South Africa and all over the world work under the protection of the World Health Wellness law 22/2007

Our scope of practice according to this law is: diagnosis, treatment and prevention of physical and mental problems)


This course is done for the NPC (Non Profit Corporation) of the USA, AMO (NPO) in Southern Africa.

AMO is also registered as a NPO in South Africa.
