What our Great Graduates are saying:
I have always been passionate about psychology and human development. Obtaining a degree in mind-body transformational psychology has only deepened my passion for it. I truly feel that I am blessed to have the knowledge that I do. I have so many different modalities in my bag. I feel like I am prepared for anything that might occur in a session. Preparedness. That is the gift that SWIHA gave me. My short term memory might kick in at times, but I know that my knowledge rests inside me…unwavering and ready to be called upon. Once I found SWIHA, I quickly discovered a majority of the work done would be on myself. Where I was at the beginning of my journey is almost completely different to where I am now. My compassion and humor is what most helps to put clients at ease, making the scarier parts of life a little less scary. How awesome is it to be a vehicle for people to find their path and to discover their light? Seriously! Could it get any better?Christa Rimmer
