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!

Feedback from Robert W Davies
Excellent course that exceeded my expectations, a lot of effort put into this workshop and the supporting material. Tutor had an excellent teaching style, engaging and encouraging all her students. I didn't realise it would be possible to learn so much in one day! I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who either wishes to start learning the Tarot or wants too deepen their knowledge.
Feedback from Ester
Tutor feedback: What an amazing Tutor. I didn't want the day to finish, she shared and taught us according with her knowledge and experience and this made me feel like an experienced reader. By the end of the day I felt confidente and as I mentioned above don't want the day to finish. Thank you for such an amazing time and energy that was created. I felt and feel empowered in my journey.

Feedback from natasha mann
I have attended 3 courses with Maxine before so I knew that she offered a high standard of training. The course was fantastic! Maxine made us feel welcome from the minute we walked into the room. The atmosphere was calm, beautiful and a safe space for us to develop our Tarot reading skills. The pace was perfect so within a short time we were able to put our learning into practice with different spreads and types of reading. This helped to develop our confidence and improve our questions and interpretations of symbols or other images. I was amazed by how much we all improved before the end of the course. The manual is really comprehensive so it's been a fantastic resource to use whilst practising readings with friends and family. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn about Tarot whether it's for fun or to become a professional reader. Thanks so much for this amazing experience! Tasha x
Feedback from Sharon Beckham
What a fabulous day! I'm absolutely thrilled at how more easily my readings are flowing and how I'm meeting each character like old friends. It certainly was a magical journey and I'm so glad the process was led by you Maxine! Thank you so much for the warmest welcome, your enthusiasm and your passion for Tarot was evident. It has reignited my own!
