Following an introduction to the course, the 1st module informs students about the history of the practice and brings them up-to-date with recent developments in this constantly evolving field. Here you will also learn just how popular colour therapy is, and explore how to use it to heal.

The 2nd module of the Colour Therapy Diploma Course looks further into the nature of colour itself, as it delves into the seven coloured cosmic rays, the nature and electromagnetic properties of light, and how we perceive colours. Here students will also learn about the seven colour levels, the metaphysical ascension of the mind, other physical and etheric planes, and the subtle body.

Module 3 looks briefly into the anatomy and physiology of colour therapy, as well as how colour therapy can be used to in day-to-day life. The course then looks at a range of specific colours, one-by-one, providing information on the physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and symbolism of each.

The Colour Therapy Diploma Course's 4th module provides students with information on the effects of colour on our health; physical, emotional, and mental, and how different colours can alter our wellbeing.

Module 5 expands further on the physical and emotional effects of colours by looking at how warm and cool colours affect us differently, as well as looking at the symbolism of colours within society. This module also looks at how colour is used throughout our lives and how to discover your colour season, to use when selecting clothing.

Although many of us have heard of auras and chakras, not all of us have a full understanding of what these are. Module 6 explains what and where your aura is, as well as how to interpret its colours. Likewise, the seven chakras are discussed, teaching students about the structure, location and function of each. With this underlying knowledge in place, the course talks about their links with colour therapy, as well as exploring the meridians of the body and their meanings.

Module 7 talks about how you can enhance your mood by careful selection of the colour of the clothes you wear, the module continues to talk about which colours should be used in certain rooms in the house, to improve the activities normally associated with each area.

The 8th module of the Colour Therapy Diploma Course talks about the different ways that rays of light can affect our bodies and how this knowledge can be used in colour therapy. This discusses how natural light affects us, as well as the importance of the direction of light, and different colours of light.

As a Colour Therapist, you will need at least basic counselling skills to empathise with and understand your clients. Module 9 teaches this, along with various methods of using colour to reflect the energy, health, life, and even body you (or your client) want. You will also learn about aura soma and colour therapy cards.

Colour Therapy and Art Therapy can be used hand-in-hand to the benefit of both adult and child clients. The 10th module of the Colour Therapy Diploma Course teaches students how to interpret the art created by clients, and read the hidden messages in the colours and placement of objects within. You will also learn how to use colour as a diagnostic tool, based on colour psychology.

Although not immediately obvious, Aromatherapy also works well with Colour Therapy, as each stimulate a different sense, making a powerful combination than either alone could. Module 11 discuss how to use this relationship to aid your clients. You will learn about some of the scents used in Aromatherapy and how these can be combined with Colour Therapy, to provide a synergistic and holistic session.

Module 12 discusses specific colour healing techniques used within Colour Therapy; teaching students how and why to use each, both for themselves and clients. The module covers: colour breathing, colour meditation and colour visualisations.

Students who are taking the Colour Therapy Diploma Course with the intention of starting their own business later, will enjoy module 13, which talks about what you would need to do to set up a colour therapy practice. This includes information on the different types of colour healing practice you could provide, and how to set up your space, brand your business, and attract clients.

Module 14 talks specifically about the career paths that can be taken as a Colour Therapist, as well as discussing what you can offer and how to use colour therapy with your clients. Students will also learn how to organise multiple sessions that build on each other.

Continuing to imbue students with knowledge of how to build a business in Colour Therapy, the 15th module talks about how to prepare and conduct 3 different colour therapy sessions, these being: chakra clearing, art therapy, and a session to alleviate pain. Also covered are: how your workspace and you should be presented, and ways to grow your business.

The final module of the Colour Therapy Diploma Course looks at how to bring colour therapy into your life more fully. This includes: choosing foods by their colour, how to choose clothes for work, as well as to compile a good colour wardrobe that suits you and your lifestyle, and how to bring colour into your home in subtle ways.
