An in-depth look at CiMFT

Our CiMFT blended learning format provides you with so much more theoretical information that can be reviewed at your leisure. This results in our in-person attendance workshops remaining practically focused, giving you more time to experience, practise and perfect MFR. This combined format provides a comprehensive, flexible but fully supported learning environment, equipping you with a variety of new techniques that will enhance your therapeutic effectiveness and improve treatment outcomes.

This course can be completed in as little as 5-6 months. However, you must have attended the practical workshops, completed the entire course content including unit quizzes, submission of 3 case studies (two treatments each case study) and one reflective assignment paper to gain your qualification. Full support is provided for these theoretical elements. You can however take longer and study at your own pace, taking a maximum of 18 months to complete it. Access to course content is restricted to 18 months however, extensions for extenuating circumstances will be considered on an individual basis.
