It’s now possible for Geelong and Surf Coast residents interested in high standard personal development to undertake training to become a psychotherapist or a meditation and mindfulness teacher close to home.
Wayne Linton is helping people learn and train to a professional level in something they’re interested in or may even have a passion for.
While teaching psychology at Colac High School 20 years ago, Wayne became interested in meditation, hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, travelling every month to Melbourne since then for extensive training.
His clients began asking for training locally so Wayne created the College of Soul Focused Psychotherapy in 2011, with many graduates enjoying the different diplomas and workshops on offer.
Students learn to deepen their own process and knowledge base or start a new career.
Wayne’s college and work has been recognised internationally.
In 2017, Steve Tappin, chief executive officer of English company Xinfu, had some private sessions with Wayne.
Steve and his team work in partnership with some of the world’s top Fortune 100 companies to build inspiring and purposeful companies that generate super returns. Steve is recognised as a world leader in transforming these companies.
Wayne was asked to be Steve’s Psychotherapist and Qi Gong trainer, to bring the SFP College way of working with individuals and groups to a wider world community.
Wayne is now responsible in Australia and around the world for assisting each company’s chief executive officer and executive team to reach their highest individual potential and facilitate workshops to create a “fellowship” approach in business.
With easy access via FaceTime and Skype, Wayne is now bringing SFP College practices to clients in Africa, America, Asia and across Europe.
The college is the first of its kind to combine psychological training with a focus on identifying where personality issues come from and how to transcend the issue to operate from a higher (soul) self.
Students watch live client sessions with Wayne as they’re happening, which is a huge benefit compared to the usual theory only classes.
Students can choose to do full diplomas or select workshops that they find interesting.
All courses offered by Wayne are approved through the International Institute of Complimentary Therapies which can provide full insurance upon completion.
