  1. 2019 FHT Conference ‘an inspiring and rewarding day’ – Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT)

  2. I’m so pleased that Carole won Tutor of the Year, having attended her workshop in June this year I was overwhelmed by the content she included in the 2 day course. Her teaching methods, patience to ensure we understood, along the course content that included amazing diagrams, videos to reference etc, She’s a super Tutor!
