Complementary therapies are more widely known and accepted throughout the UK than ever before. Many hospitals, hospices and GP practices, now offer patients access to some services, and the general population are increasingly seeking skilled practitioners to support their wellbeing.
Our diplomas are for anyone with a desire to use complementary therapies in a safe, skilled and competent way in order to support clients and/or patients.
Designed to meet the needs of learners with no previous experience, we also welcome qualified therapists who would like to refresh or upgrade their skills. Those already working in a related profession may be eligible for accreditation of prior learning so may be exempt from some modules.
Ideally you will have the equivalent of five GCSEs at grades A-C. However, we see maturity as an asset too and the right personal qualities are just as important. So if you are seeking to develop a new career don’t let a lack of formal qualifications put you off. Come and speak to us and we will see how we can help you.
