Feedback from Linda Saunders
Tutor: Beth Cook
Course: Aromatherapy for Beginners Online Course
This is my second online course with Beth, she responds very quickly, is very friendly and helpful. Her courses are straight to the point and its always a pleasure to work with her.
I am using this area to say 'why' the course met with my expectations. I was hesitant at first due the cost of a non accredited course but it gave me a very thorough, detailed and informative picture, of what Aromatherapy is all about and how it works. I really enjoyed the course and found it to be fun, I particularly valued the sections on hair care and massage. I now have the correct information to use Aromatherapy on myself in a safe way and know that I wouldn't want to pursue a fully qualified version, which saves my time and any financial commitment. There is so much information available online, face to face, in books etc etc but I felt I believed and trusted the information I would get from this course and I was more than happy with the results. I would recommend anyone who is interested to book as its brilliant and you wont be disappointed. Thank you
