Holistic Therapy Training Courses key to success
Are you attending a course of study leading to a recognised professional certificate or diploma in a complementary therapy?

Are you planning to set up and run you own therapy business?

Do you already operate as a therapist and recognise that you need to ‘up your game’ to make a success of this during the ‘credit crunch’.

People often set out on a career as a therapist in search of a less stressful and more fulfilling way of earning a living.  In today’s complex and competitive world it’s unfortunately generally not enough to be a brilliant therapist, we also need to be astute business people; able to navigate our way through issues such as:

  • business planning,
  • financial management
  • health and safety
  • company law


These two courses are designed to provide the Complementary Therapist with the basic knowledge and skills required to help them plan for business success and then run a successful small business.


The Professional Conduct and Business Awareness Distance Learning courses are designed for you to complete in the comfort of your own home.  They give you the flexibility to study at a time to suit you.
