The Institute of Spiritual Healing & Aromatherapy expanded the Aromatherapy program to Australia in 2011. We continue to offer classes online and in-person when possible.


We have a great network of Australian students currently in the program and also ISHA graduates there to support each other. Of course, our American ISHA Community is great to interact with as well. We are all very grateful to be able to interact with the many mentors, instructors, graduates, and students working through the program.

Our Founder, Linda Smith, created such a phenomenal program and it's been a rewarding experience to watch it expand in Australia over the past 10 years.

Meet Karen Bysouth, CCA

Karen is the Australian Facilitator of ISHA's Aromatherapy program and is also a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist (CCA) and ISHA Instructor. Her background is corporate; however, her heart always had an interest and love of essential oils which soon led to a desire to want to know more. She discovered that appropriate education in Australia in Aromatherapy was difficult to find. In 2011 Karen was introduced to and became a student of the ISHA program. Her teacher was the founder of the ISHA Certification Program, Linda Smith. She found she loved the "hands on" classes and the ability to study whilst still working full time was an added bonus. Students now work through the program wihich includes online homework.

Before graduating in 2014, Karen took over the role as the Australian Facilitator for the ISHA Aromatherapy Program. She is grateful for the guidance and assistance from the first Australian Facilitator, Catherine Garro.

Recently Karen stepped up her role, commencing as an Instructor with ISHA. She looks forward to finding others to co-ordinate the program - one in each state of Australia.   She is also currently an Apprentice in the Healing Touch Program.

"I am honoured and humbled by what I have learnt of the healing aspects of therapeutic grade essential oils and aromatherapy. I find the spiritual energy techniques inspiring on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. I love to support students, no matter what State or Territory they live, through this process and to encourage further education."
