did my aromatherapy training with Catherine in Newcastle. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience in aromatherapy, which she shares with such passion. I’ve learned so much from her, feel inspired and know that she will continue to help me in the future. Her approach is so supportive, she’s encouraging and such a lovely energy to be around. Thank you Catherine I’ll see you again soon!
