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 upgradeCourse dates

Mentoring services also available – further information on request.

Reflexology £45

Our Reflexology Practical Workshop will teach you a complete reflexology routine.
Reflexology is an extremely effective therapy based on the principle that reflex points on the feet correspond to each organ and structure in the body and are linked to those organs by energy channels. When illness or imbalance occurs in the body, the corresponding energy channels become blocked, and Reflexology Massage is aimed to destroy these blocks, allowing the energy to flow freely again, so restoring the body’s natural balance, and hence – good health. Cut off dates for booking 10/03/20, 14/04/20 & 19/05/20.

10am – 4pm

I am fully ITEC qualified & fully insured to teach 16+ and perform all the therapies I offer.

Having said that I love teaching people from all walks of life and meeting new students is one of the things I love most about my job.

I also offer value for money Complementary Therapies & Beauty Therapies from my studio in Torquay, Devon.

I am passionate about the benefits of Complementary Therapy for all types of body & mind pain relief, from helping to alleviate back pain to combating stress and depression, & everything in between.

I offer bespoke treatments to my clients and will assess what your individual needs are at your first session so that your treatment is tailor made for you.

About Me

In a former life I have been a fitness instructor (as well as a myriad of other jobs!) and indeed fitness is where my passion started some 30 years ago.  I have always been fascinated with the human body and people.

After having my two children I chose to diversify into complementary health and wellbeing.  I first qualified as an Aromatherapist in 2008 and went on to study ITEC Body Massage, Lymphatic Drainage Massage and Sports Massage, before continuing learning into many other therapies.

I have been interested in exercise, health & wellbeing for as long as I can remember, but more recently have become much more interested in mental health.

All of the body’s systems work in harmony together and links are to be found in our mental wellbeing, physical wellbeing and emotional states which is why I am so passionate about working with my clients on a more spiritual and holistic level.  I believe it is important to find the root cause of an issue in order to be able to treat it effectively.

I am qualified and experienced in nutrition, exercise, lifestyle assessments, many complementary therapy modalities, beauty therapy and all round health & wellbeing.  I have also attended level 2 & 3 safeguarding training.

My business is the culmination of my passion, learning, experience & knowledge and desire to help others to feel well and be the person that they want to become.  I continue to learn and develop my own skills and knowledge to improve myself and the services I can offer my clients and students.

My goal is to bring the life changing benefits of complementary health (Physically, Mentally & Emotionally) to as many people as I can.

I studied and passed my Certificate in Education & Training at South Devon College in 2014 and I was lucky enough to be able to start working with Karen Ashton at Holistic Therapies Training shortly after.

I also have previous experience in writing and running my own workshops.
