This course is open to anyone, but will be of particular importance and relevance to professional practitioners and therapists already working in alternative medicine or the beauty field.
Most of you will have experienced clients sharing their problems and life issues with you during sessions, so by adding Remedies/Essences to your repertoire you can introduce these non-invasive tools to your clients to manage change and transition, or just to help them through a stressful or difficult situation.
We will explore the philosophy and origin of Bach Flower Remedies together with accompanying vibrational Essence ranges.
It will enable students to have a clear understanding of Remedies/Essences and their use as a practical non-invasive tool, exploring the opportunity they present for positive emotional change.
The course will identify and raise awareness of our emotional states through knowledge, demonstration and use of the Bach Flower Remedies/Essences, showcasing their ability to restore balance, harmony and well being when using for self or with clients.
Students will receive a comprehensive reference Manual to support the course.
Students will be awarded a Certificate at the end of the day on demonstrating their understanding of, and competence in recommending, a suitable Remedy/essence for their clients.

If you do not wish to be worked on, you can take a model with you or sometimes the tutor can provide one if advised beforehand.

Our certification is not brand specific. In some cases you insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. However training with us this allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.
The tutor will be happy to discuss products, prices and how much you can charge for the therapy on your training day. The tutor will also cover the insurance information for you too, we receive a discount with a large insurance company covering our training for those of you new to this field or wanting to change to a new and more affordable cover.
For many of our massage courses we offer a useful DVD for just £10 (which is available on the day) this is an excellent visual aid and covers the complete massage course technique.
Our tutors are so confident that one day is adequate for our one Diploma courses, due to the small numbers they teach. If they or you feel you need to come back to repeat the course, you can do this free of charge when they have a place available.
Many other companies offering similar courses but have much larger classes thus it has to be taught over a longer period of time. You may be asked to come back a second day to go over what you have learnt as the tutor does not have time to get around the class due to the large numbers.
Some other schools offer their courses over 2 days, sometimes it is a good way to get you to pay more but very often you will learn the same routines so what is the difference? They will often have much larger classes so they will have to spread their training over a longer period of time however we believe in small numbers so you receive one to one tuition.
We also send a you a fantastic Anatomy and Physiology manual before you attend our courses as another reason why some training classes elsewhere are over 2 days.
This will be due to the fact the tutor will spend a lot of the time reading about the A & P on the day which we feel you should not pay for, so we give you a free manual so you can to do this in your own time. Relevant anatomy and physiology will of course be covered on the day.
Please however remember this manual is a extra freebie from us, your course training manual is included in the cost of the course and you will receive this fully bound hard copy on the day of your training.

YES! Our philosophy is to keep classes small and give more attention to each student, thus cutting down on class hours. You will learn the same technique offered by other companies however we pride ourselves on one to one tuition in smaller classes.
You may see other companies offering similar courses over two or three days, the difference can be that they take much larger classes and need to be able to get around to all students. This takes them a longer time (due to the large numbers of students in the class) to make sure they are overseeing what the students are doing.
We often offer the same training techniques but as we only take very small numbers and thus are able to teach the course in one day.
We ask our students to fill out a feedback form after their training and often the comments are that they were surprised and pleased how much they learnt in one day. They tell us they would take another course with us due to the high standard we offer both with our tutors and the course material given on the day.
Sometimes students tell us they have learnt more on a one day course with us than on a 2 or 3 day course with another company due to the one to one tuition we offer.
Certificates are only given once students have demonstrated that they have absorbed the information presented during the day and after applying a satisfactory treatment observed by the tutor. To ensure that we act responsibly and carry out good practice, should the tutor feel that you would benefit from further training, certification may/will be held back.
You will offered the opportunity/be asked to attend the next available course that has a space, which is offered free of charge. This is rare but we would not be responsible if we sent out students, when the tutor felt they were unsafe in any way, as a day to learn a therapy is only a short time and the standard must be high enough to enable them to issue you with a certificate.
Our tutors are there to help, with small classes it is easy to absorb the techniques you are taught. There are no exams to sit for our 1 day courses only a practical assessment.
The prerequisite for attending this course (we are guided by what the professional bodies and insurance companies ask for)
This course is ideal for a beginner with no previous experience or for an experienced therapist to add this training to what they already offer.
They are so confident that one day is adequate for many of our courses (due to the small numbers they teach) that if they feel you need to come back to repeat the course, you can do this free of charge.
8 CPD course points has been awarded for this course by the beauty guild - please check with who you registered with for their guidelines on how many points they award for one day courses as they all differ.
Course accreditation and certificates awarded can be found on the course structure page.
