I took my first ITEC qualification in 1993 and quickly realised that I had a passion for this industry that led me to gaining a further 9 ITEC qualifications in Complementary Therapies over the next few years. I started my career as a therapist in a Hilton hotel and later took over the treatment room as my own business. I have also worked as a mobile and on site therapist and in an airline lounge spa. I am kind, patient and have a desire to help others and during my studies, my course tutor recommended that I consider becoming a massage tutor.
Prior to joining Gateway I have taught in further education colleges, a private beauty school and within adult education. I have taught ITEC, VTCT, NVQ qualifications and one day courses.
My other area of interest is in maternity and postnatal care and I have worked with pregnant and postnatal mums and babies for many years and have my own antenatal classes company.
I look forward to offering massage courses in London so you can begin your journey to a new career. Not many jobs offer a calm, relaxed, stress free working day and a thank you at the end of each treatment as well as a great hourly rate. Through the extensive choice of Gateway Workshops courses, you can enhance your therapy offering and continue your learning with like-minded individuals.
I look forward to seeing you on a Gateway course soon!
Alison was a wonderful, warm, welcoming tutor with a passion for her subject and a long- standing wealth of knowledge. She delivered a thorough, fun and informative day and is an asset to Gateway and the London based tutor group.
Superb! Very thorough and a joy to attend. I feel I have experienced mentoring as well as teaching with a very approachable and professional teacher,who is meticulous and clearly passionate about what she does. I now free ready to successfully build upon my massage experience thus far and am so glad I chose this course. Thank you so much Alison for your heartfelt teaching
