All of our teaching is based on our philosophy of a grounded, functional and evidence-based humanism and free intellectual enquiry. What is unique about our educational programs and the way you will learn is that you will engage not just with the theory and knowledge related to your studies but you will also learn through personal experience – practicing clinical methodologies you will bring to your professional work following graduation. 

To support you in this, and your own personal journey that is an integral part of being an IKON student, we will ensure that your lecturers, tutors and other staff are readily available to you. You will also participate in counselling and therapy sessions as a client and as a student.

IKON’s unique teaching and learning approach aims to produce graduates who are enabled to continually develop their own potential, and whose skills, knowledge and therapeutic client-centered practice contribute to the creation of an international community of people and practitioners committed to social change, community building and individual healing.
