Tarot level 1 diploma course will guide you through the world of the Tarot, introducing you to hidden doors and keys so that it becomes effortlessly alive in your life.
You will learn how to read the tarot without having to refer or memorize that not so little book of meanings!
In fact you’ll learn that the Tarot is FAR bigger than any book of meanings could possibly convey and HOW to approach it in a way where it will open up to you and speak to you directly.
Through different exercises employed throughout the day you will realise the language of the Tarot is the same as the language of your subconscious and you hold all the knowledge within already.
The morning is dedicated to exercises that unlock your ability to connect with the Tarot in this powerfully natural way.
In the afternoon we will be learning about the mythology, astrological and numerological make up of each card, this is key to being a good reader, learning the symbolism rather than the meaning. We will also be doing group readings for each other, it’s a huge amount of liberating fun!
Please note - This is a specialist course and ONLY offered as an attendance course at our central London Victoria venue we are not able to offer this at our other venues.
However if you are unable to attend in London we are also soon going to be offering something similar as an online course, if you wish to be added to the waiting list for the online version please email us so we can contact you once this is available:
This is an insurable course allowing you to use this therapy with the general public and charge for it.
Just 10 students for individual attention
If you are attending our one day courses the times are as follows:
10.00am - 4.30pm Weekdays
or 10.30am - 5pm if you choose to attend on a weekend date.
For our one day courses, you will receive a 45 min lunch break and a short afternoon break also.
No case studies are required - no written exams.
Certificates are given on the day on the completion of a successful practical assessment with your tutor.
We love what we do and have passionate knowledgeable tutors who very much look forward to welcoming you on a course with them soon.
If you feel one day is not enough training, you are able to come back to repeat the course again free of charge within 6 months when spaces are available with the same tutor.
However, due to small classes and the 1-1 attention you receive this is rare but for your piece of mind available if required.
We begin with a quick, simple and yet very powerful key that you can take with you and incorporate easily in your daily life for the power of the Tarot to continue teaching you every day, long after the course has finished.
We then move into an hour long guided meditation where you become The Fool and meet every card in The Major Arcana, this will leave you with the feeling that you are beginning to know and understand each card in itself - as a person in it’s own right.
After which we will be practicing the most important art as a reader - storytelling. You cannot be a reader if you can’t read a story - it’s not the spreads that are the most important thing to learn, it’s the art of storytelling.
The afternoon is dedicated to learning the symbology in the cards, in a really fun and truly enlightening way.
You will get a chance to read for a variety of people under Tiffany's coaching. One problem people who are learning Tarot find, is that it's hard to find people to read for, either you are too close or you don't have anybody in your circle open to it.
People often come to Tarot the hard way - reading for themselves first, then friends and family. The hardest readings to do are readings for the self (no objectivity) or readings for friends and family (little objectivity) it is actually far easier to read for a stranger. Yet often there is a fear of doing so, however if you are ever going to progress in this art you will need to become confident in reading for strangers. The afternoon gives you a chance to do this.
1) You have an interest in Tarot or you have developed your connection with the Tarot to a point where you feel ready to practice reading for others - in fact, with Tarot you can never know enough, and the exercises I bring here are unique, and would also serve as CPD for professionals.
2) All the people around you either don't want their cards read or they are friends and family you know too well. You really need a platform where you can practice with others you don't know.
By the end of the day you will see how easy it is to read tarot in a really fun, amazing and “super- natural” way that comes from within and liberates you from trying to understand or learn or remember it. for others will grow to a whole new level of understanding and confidence.

Why is our course so popular?
This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.
Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.
This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.
This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!

"Thanks so much for last Friday's course, that and the tarot day have got to be two of the most amazing days I have ever experienced. The past life experience has explained so many things that I have been scared of in my life and shone a light on all my recurring nightmares and dreams. I already feel like a big weight has been lifted from my shoulders".
"I am still working my way through the tarot pack and keeping a card at a time under my pillow and the dreams and events that I'm experiencing are amazingly apt to the card I'm carrying at that time. You are right when you describe this as a magical journey I feel like I'm in one of the most peaceful and yet exhilerating times of my life. Thank you so much I can't tell you how much this has all helped me refocus on what is important in life, I don't think you could have come along at a better time."
