The Spiritual Companions Trust is an educational charity. We develop resources and programmes at the interface of health, wellbeing and spirituality.
We celebrate diversity and welcome people from all spiritual traditions and none at all.
Our emblem is a feather on water as our approach requires care and sensitive awareness — a light touch.
Our First Diploma Course Launches this Autumn
Developed over a decade this is the first UK course integrating spirituality and healthcare to be fully accredited by Ofqual. It is also the gateway to becoming a Spiritual Companion.

We develop and provide resources and training for organisations and communities.
We support people in developing their own mature and autonomous approach to spirituality and self-development. We deliver a UK/EU recognised qualification, the Diploma in Practical Spirituality and Wellness. We support organisations develop good practice in spirituality and wellbeing.
As individuals and as a community we believe in the profound benefits of spirituality for personal and social wellbeing. We therefore support people informally and formally on their spiritual journeys in one-to-one and group situations; and we also provide organisational support and trainings.
Our First Diploma Course is Fully Subscribed
With hardly any marketing we are proud to announce that our first diploma course became fully described within two weeks of being announced. We are now planning to deliver it in 2017 in London, York and Norwich.
Ofqual Says YES to New SC Course

“When I was ready to take my next steps as an educator, I searched to develop in an environment that felt intellectually sound, emotionally literate, psychologically safe and spiritually inspiring. Spiritual Companion training is all of that: practical, mindful, expansive, inclusive, supportive and rigorous. It continues to inform how I am in my work and in my life generally.” — Martine Moorby, Spiritual Companions Educator
