Student Testimonials

I have just completed an Aromatherapy Diploma with Christine and have to say she is extremely knowledgeable in everything she teaches.  This is my second course with Christine.  She is very supportive of her students.  Absolutely would recommend Christine to anyone looking at doing any holistic training. 


I had training with Gill for Hand, Foot & Shoulder Massage. Gill is very experienced and the 121 training really helped develop the massage techniques. Very professional, a high standard of care and her kind, gentle passionate nature for her knowledge and skill is excellent value for money. 

I would highly recommend. 



I would like to thank Lorraine (Nottingham) for the course I attended yesterday.  The course was well led and very organised and Lorraine was very professional with her delivery of the subject matter. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend the course and Lorraine.


What a brilliant course. Christine (North Yorkshire) is a fantastic teacher. She has such a calming nature and you can tell how passionate she is about holistic treatments. I came away feeling confident, inspired and raring to go with my new treatment (Indian Head Massage)

Thank you very much. 


I just wanted to provide feedback for Lorraine. Myself and my sister Shamaila throughly enjoyed our courses. We both recently completed the Swedish Massage and Hot Stone Massage courses with our lovely tutor Lorraine in Nottingham. Lorraine had a wonderful wealth of knowledge, great teaching style and was very inspiring. She was very thorough in her teaching and had a friendly approach. She had a warm personality and made us both feel at ease. We gained more confidence by learning and applying these skills. Thank you once again for teaching us and a plethora of new skills.

Sharon (Glasgow venue) did a great job in making use of the Google Meet facility. She employed 2 cameras which gave me a very good view on all the techniques that she demonstrated. In return she observed my practice on my partner in real time. She was therefore able to correct any movements that were not flawless and give a lot of valuable tips regarding stance, movement and positioning. Sharon was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of extra information. I enjoyed my course with her and would highly recommend the remote version of the massage course as great alternative in these COVID19 restricted times.


Good evening Sharon

I just want to say that i thoroughly enjoyed today's Google Meet Paraffin Wax training session. The whole day was delivered in a very friendly and professional manner. I left today's training feeling very confident and part of a friendly caring team. Thankyou very much. I will probably look to doing more training with you.

Take Care, loved meeting you


Excellent and comprehensive training with Louise Liddle in West Sussex. Thorough and detailed course materials- with online support and printable manuals. Superb ‘live’ teaching and practical sessions. Hugely supportive, with wonderful communication throughout. Lots of demonstrations with models, which puts all of the learning into action. Flexible enough to fit in around full time work and a busy family life. Very rewarding. Cannot recommend highly enough.


I did my Crystal Healing with Gill in Doncaster. it was a lovely course. I really enjoyed the day and doing the treatment. I’ve remembered a couple Of questions since doing the course and Gill has got back to me very quickly and answered everything for me which means a lot as it’s all about good student aftercare too, which is something I also look for in Teachers, their support after the training too. I’ve already recommended this course and Gill to a friend and will definitely do more courses with Gill in the future. Thank you 😊💫


Just wanted to say that I absolutely loved my Indian Head Massage course today with Pauline in Dunfermline

My model loved it too, so much so she wished she could have done it with me! Gutted we missed out on the friends deal. Many thanks for running courses with wonderful tutor. Highly recommend.

Sharon Flockhart

I'm over the moon with this course (Aromatherapy) thanks again Catherine (Newcastle Holistics).

Lyn Maines

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Jane (Essex venue) for all her support today with my Holistic Facial Massage course today. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, very clear with her training today. Found it really rewarding.

Sharon Topple

I wanted to write to say a thank you for your course. I'm nearly 2 years qualified now in Reflexology, having completed my course with Sharon Cronnelly at Beauty Necessities Retreat on the Isle of Wight. The course, combined with Sharon's training, has really changed my life. I've built up a really lovely client base, I regularly work the healing areas at festivals, retreats abroad, and for a sailing team during Cowes week. I'm sure my passion shows through, I even have experienced therapists come to me for their treatments! 

None of this would be happening if I hadn't enrolled on your course, and if Sharon hadn't been so professional in her teachings. So thank you, thanks a million!

Cliff Dutton Reflexologist

Fantastic day's training in Indian Head Massage from Sue Appleton in Thornaby. Nice pace, clear instruction, good documentation and warm welcome. Really enjoyed it and already got clients lined up to experience it. Thank you Sue for making it such a good experience. I would certainly be happy to train with you again.


I have done my Lash/brow tint and shape course with Tina (Bolton venue) today. I've done a few training courses now and have to say this is one of the best ones I have been on! She is so thorough, personal and professional! Gives great advice and guidance to your training! LOVED IT! xxx 


The course was brilliant and 1-1 excellent. I felt very confident with the course expectations, Sharon was brilliant and I would recommend to everyone. I would recommend this training instead of a college environment as i did choose formerly. A fantastic trainer and training; the venue is excellent and relaxing. Sharon (Isle of Wight) has given me a great deal of knowledge and confidence to go out and go for it.


I wanted to say I am currently undertaking my Reflexology and Aromatherapy training with Catherine Phillipson (Newcastle/Tyne & Wear venue) and she has been fantastic so far, very supportive, informative and a pleasure to learn with. I would highly recommend both Amethyst training and Catherine.

Suzanne Morley

A huge thank you for the Indian Head Massage and Thai Hand and Foot massage courses. Enjoyed every minute of them. Pauline (Fife venue) is an amazing tutor taking students through the course. She has proved to be very professional at what she is doing, great supervision with guiding and correcting where necessary. So gentle, open, friendly, supportive, also shared her knowledge of profession and gave some much valuable advice. 

A huge thank to you, Rachel again for being very supportive and encouraging through my Anatomy course. That was a great experience for me.

Wishing all of you the very best!



I attended Indian Head Massage training with Lorraine (Lincoln venue) on 9th July, she made us feel comfortable and offered a space to learn which was peaceful and relaxing. Lorraine offered a balance between theory and practice, enabling me to leave the course feeling confident to deliver independently.  As a result of my training with Lorraine I will be identifying other courses which appeal to me and booking it with her in the future.

 Thanks Lorraine for a wonderful experience, Jo, Scunthorpe July 2017

The ability to practice with guidance and clear instructions with the following guide to refer back, having found the course being taught, expectations, professional and supportive in my training and recommending the courses - all excellent. (Sharon IOW venue)

Sharon (IOW venue) is worth her weight in gold.  I went out today, did 3 manicures and it looked stunning. The clients were so happy. Sharon gave me a lot of additional advice and I have learnt so much.

Thanks once again. Lynn

Can I just add that Roselyn (Barnsley) was wonderful, very thorough snd personable. I have spoken to her about further courses i am interested in and will definitely be booking more courses with you in the future.  Thank you very much

Helen Johnson 

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the two day facial course with Jane (Essex venue), she was beyond helpful and so full of helpful knowledge. She could not do enough for me including managing to get a model for me to practice on the first day.  Fab course and so glad that I attended with your company. 


Thank you for such an amazing course loved it so much. (Hopi Ear Candling with Roselyn in Barnsley).  I really was impressed by the professionalism and teaching on the the course.
