These questions and answers all relate to course 3.

To study the Dream Therapy Professional Level 1 course, you need to first complete Course 1 How to interpret your dreams step-by-step and Course 2 Dream alchemy.

This is a practical, people-focussed course: you will practise different techniques with volunteer clients (people you choose), and have your ten Zoom or Phone mentoring sessions with Jane Teresa along the way.

The focus is on training you to work with clients to assist their healing and transformation using dream therapy techniques. During the course you’ll work with two or three volunteer clients (people you choose) and record your experiences and results in your Course Diary which you’ll submit to Jane Teresa when you complete the course. The Course Diary gives you clear instructions on what written information to record for each of the modules. You’ll also have TEN 60-minute one:one mentoring sessions by Zoom or Phone with Jane Teresa.

The purpose of this course

  • Learn how to work with clients and assist their healing and transformation using dream therapy techniques.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of dream analysis, dream interpretation, and dream alchemy.
  • Learn key dream therapy skills.
  • Practise these dream therapy skills with your volunteer clients.
  • Gain your certificate by submitting your Course Diary to Jane Teresa.

During the course you’ll work with two or three volunteer clients (people you choose) either face-to-face, or by Zoom (or similar), or by phone, or by a mix of these (you choose). If you prefer, you can work with your clients using chat or email, though this will be a slower process. Your volunteer clients – friends or friends of friends – will receive the benefits of dream therapy through working with you as you practise the techniques, and will most likely be very happy to give you testimonials and talk up your services through word of mouth when you are ready to work with paying clients.

The Course Diary gives you clear instructions on what written information to record for each of the 13 modules. (The 14th module does not require a record.) It also gives word-length guidelines. Mostly your written entry for each module will be somewhere between 500 and 1,200 words, some are much less. You will not be required to write out your clients’ dreams in detail. 

Your certificate is awarded by Jane Teresa Anderson on successful completion, as evaluated by your Course Diary. The Course Diary gives you clear instructions on what written information to record for each of the modules. If there are any sections of your Course Diary that Jane Teresa feels need more work, or more details, she’ll outline what you need to do to successfully resubmit.

The Dream Therapy Professional Level 1 certificate confirms that you have successfully completed the coursework and gained the skills to use Jane Teresa’s professional dream therapy methods in your therapy work. It entitles you to state (and market) that you have successfully trained with Jane Teresa Anderson to use her methods in your work. 

You’ll probably need about 125 hours in total. This includes watching the videos, reading the manual, studying the theory, contemplation, preparation time for working with your volunteer clients, time spent working with your clients, record keeping after your client sessions, your ten 60-minute mentoring sessions with Jane Teresa, and writing up your Course Diary. You may find it takes a little less than 125 hours, you may need a little more, and you may wish to add in more time to contemplate and practise with your own dreams or with additional volunteer clients.

Aside from the feeling of personal contact through watching Jane Teresa’s videos and hearing her voice, you will have TEN 60-minute confidential one:one mentoring sessions with Jane Teresa by Zoom or Phone. You will also submit your Course Diary to Jane Teresa on completion of your course. She will then either award your certificate after personally reading your Course Diary, or, if there are any sections of your Course Diary that she feels need more work or more details, she’ll outline what you need to do to successfully resubmit. She’ll work with you to make sure you successfully complete.

To gain access to this course you need to complete Course 1 (AUD $39) and Course 2 (AUD $39). There are no other additional costs.

These questions and answers all relate to course 4.

You need to complete the Dream Therapy Professional Level 1 certificate.

In this course you deepen your professional practise and advance your skills through practicing full dream therapy (fieldwork) with new volunteer clients, writing and submitting five assignments largely based on your fieldwork, and having FIVE 60-minute one:one mentoring Zoom or Phone sessions with Jane Teresa.

The course includes a special interest assignment.  You choose the subject: it might be a special interest in one form of dream alchemy, or in a defined client base (recovering addicts, teenagers, recently bereaved, cancer patients), or another area of your choice. There is no additional formal theory in this course.

Your certificate is awarded by Jane Teresa on successful completion, as evaluated by your assignments and Zoom or Phone sessions. If she feels your assignments (or practise) need more work or detail, she’ll guide you, during the Zoom or Phone sessions, toward what you need to do to resubmit to be awarded your certificate.

Your certificate confirms that you have successfully graduated from the Dream Therapy Professional Level 2 course, and you can promote your advanced skills and services as certified by Jane Teresa Anderson.

You’ll need to allow the time for your practice (at least three volunteer client sessions per week for 6-12 weeks), allowing for the actual session times plus prep and post (record taking) for each session. You may need two or three hours to write each assignment, or you may need, or prefer to take, much longer. You need to set aside five hours for your five Zoom or Phone mentoring sessions with Jane Teresa, and you may wish to allow some time for prep and post (summarising your notes or doing follow up work) around each session. In addition to these hours, you’ll probably want to set aside time, during this course, for deeper contemplation and, perhaps, revisiting some of the theory you covered in earlier courses. You know yourself and your approach to study and practise very well, so you’ll be able to calculate a rough idea of the number of hours you’ll need to set aside for this course, as well as to take it at a relaxed, enjoyable, nourishing, and enriching pace.

Yes. There are FIVE 60-minute Zoom or Phone one:one mentoring sessions with Jane Teresa Anderson, each session designed to talk about an assignment (after Jane Teresa has had time to read and review it), or anything else you’d like to discuss or explore. These are arranged at a pace to suit you, in keeping with the ‘work at your own pace’ intention behind all the courses. There’s no time limit on this course.
