  1. :

    I thoroughly enjoyed completing the Aromatherapy Diploma. Jean Pinion , Galina and Rachael were very professional, approachable and extremely helpful when I had queries during the course, whilst completing my home studies and final assessments. I wish I had completed this course years ago as it has helped me on a personal relaxation journey as well as opening up potential employment opportunities for the future! Would recommend this course to anyone. Karen Hopes
