VTCT Upscale Path

As you will see above there is an upscale path option for some of the courses. This means, once you have completed the accredited course, if you wish to take your studies further and upgrade to our VTCT course, then the option is there for you.

How does this work?

You attend the required number of days for the accredited course with our tutor at this venue, then if you wish to upscale to VTCT:

  • Training Days – You deduct the number of days you have already attended from the VTCT days and the remaining days will be attended with our assessors at our VTCT assessment centre, in Bideford, Devon. (days can be grouped together to reduce travel time, if required.).
  • Payment – You deduct what you have already paid for your accredited course, and pay the difference + £50 admin fee.


Massage 2 day accredited course – £395

Upscale to

VTCT Level 3 Swedish Massage (4 days) – £550

Training days – 2 days attended at your chosen venue, further 2 days attend at our VTCT centre in Bideford, Devon

Payment – £550 (VTCT) – £395 (pd for accredited) = £155 balance to pay + £50 admin fee = £205 amount payable for upgrade

Karen Trim

Karen has had a long standing interest in all things holistic since her early 20’s. She first studied reflexology at the Bayly School of Reflexology in central London in 1995. Her career took her down a more corporate path for many years, working in London, Bristol & Plymouth in HR, training & recruitment. More laterally, she worked in the weight loss industry. After feeling frustrated at not being able to help clients, she recognised that stress was a major contributor to their weight issues. At that point, she made the decision to return to her main interest, holistic therapies. Karen retrained and set up her own business in Plymouth ‘Freedom Therapeutics’ and offers a wide range of treatments. It was only natural with her training background to progress to teaching therapies. Karen now tutors under the name Plymouth Holistic Therapies.
