Colour therapist jobs can be a rewarding and enjoyable career. Colour therapists believe that when the body absorbs light it is interpreted by the brain as colour. These colours affect our mental, emotional and physical state. Colour therapist jobs involve using a variety of techniques including breathing exercises, and the use of light and colour in various ways.
There is no regulations governing becoming a colour therapist. As such, there are no set entry requirements for colour therapy courses. Previous experience in counselling, anatomy and physiology can be useful, and are essential when studying at higher levels.
There are number of training courses available, including short introductory courses. The Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) and International Institute of Health and Holistic Therapists (IIHHT) both award certificates and diplomas in colour therapy, as does the International Association of Colour (IAC).
The IAC recognizes several Colour Training Centres (CTCs) which offer a range of certificate and diploma courses. Diplomas typically take two years to complete, and are likely to include the following areas of study:
Colour treatment techniques
Consultation and counselling procedures
In the second year of the course there will be extensive practical work under the supervision of a tutor. It is also possible to take a diploma course by distance learning.
Once qualified, you can register with the Institute for Complementary Medicine (ICM), who maintain a professional register of skilled practitioners. Membership is available for therapists, practitioners and advanced practitioners. The ICM also has information on which training courses which meet their standards. Details of all this is available on the ICM website.
