‘Brilliant course! I enjoy Kerrie’s teaching and guidance, I liked the friendly close group approach. I felt very welcomed and comfortable from day one. This relaxed approached helped my learning and gave me time to take in new information. I felt confident to ask questions and get guidiance where needed from my tutors – who responded back extremely quickly.’ 

Course snapshot:


‘Just got back from London – my sister has just had a baby and I have been using her as a case study, she was really impressed with the initial consultation that you taught us at college, she has had reflexology many times and said it was never that thorough. She also said it filled her with confidence and she also said she liked the structure of the treatment:  relaxation, pressure points then the massage at the end.  Just wanted to thank you for teaching me reflexology really :0).  What makes all the difference is that you are very supportive (think i’ve mentioned that before to you in class) but to someone like me it keeps me going and I can’t thank you enough.‘Love Diane x

Further Information

You will learn:

  • The consultation process and introduction to counselling skills
  • Client care.
  • Adapting your treatments for individuals: e.g. young, elderly, those in palliative care, pregnancy
  • Contra-indications and reactions to treatment
  • The holistic approach to health and treatment

    You will need at least 8 hours of study time each week in order to complete assignments and case studies

    Before the course starts:
    You will be sent pre course work which includes a Business Project, Principles Project (writing about 4 other therapies), History of Reflexology Essay and also the Anatomy & Physiology course which is done first of all as a home study course before being backed up and re-enforced in the classroom.

    This is a great way to spread the workload and really get you into the coursework before you even enter the classroom- there is so much to learn that getting some of the basic information done early means there is time to go over important information and deliver the new information without overloading you.

    ASSESSMENT

  • Assessment is by project work, case studies, internal theory exams on Reflexology and ITEC Anatomy and Physiology theory exam and practical exam with ITEC examiner at the end assessing the whole class

    Here are the details:
    • Projects on Business & Principles of Practice – sent in advance of the course
    • Case Studies: 100 treatments, broken up into 40 treatments and written up (example supplied) plus 60 extra treatments
    • Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 ITEC Exam – 50 question multiple choice
    • Practical Exam with ITEC examiner

    Project work sent before the course starts so that you have plenty of time to get them completed beforehand.  This means you can concentrate on reflexology and your case studies, perfecting your treatments etc during the 9 months you are with us.

    Our Anatomy & Physiology course can also be started ahead of the actual Reflexology course starting so that you have time to assimilate the information and then it is re-enforced in the classroom with your tutor.
