frequently asked questions

What is the CNHC and why is it important to be able to register with them?

CNHC was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. CNHC has been approved as an Accredited Voluntary Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

With this qualification you are able to register with them so employers, healthcare professionals and clients can have confidence in the level of training you have received to become a complimentary therapist.

Will I get a certificate at the end of the course?

For our diploma courses you will need to be assessed as competent on your final assessment day and if all work has been completed then your certificate will be issued.

If more practise is required then another assessment day will be arranged. This is free of charge. If another day is required after this then a cost of £100 will need to be paid beforehand.

Certificates for short courses will either be issued on the day or sent out on completion of case studies.

What should I wear?

For training ideally a tunic and black trousers but if you don' have one a dark short sleeved T shirt will be fine. We ask that you wear flat non slip shoes, long hair is tied back and your nails are short.

For retreat days wear comfy loose clothing maybe consider layering as your body temperature can change during the day. Also shoes are left at the door so some cosy socks please, no one likes cold feet!

Do I need to show you any pre requisite qualifications?

Yes once you have booked your course you will be required to email over copies of your A&P and Massage Qualifications. If these are not received before the start date of the course then you will lose your place on the course. Also if we do not recognise your qualifications you will not be able to attend the course and a refund will be given.

How can I pay for courses/retreat days ?

For diploma courses you can secure your booking with a deposit of £350 this can be paid online using PayPal or credit/ debit card. Or you can call us to arrange a BACS transfer.

Monthly instalments can then be arranged to help spread the cost. Short courses, workshops and retreats must be paid in full at the time of booking.

Will I be refunded if I have to cancel my course?

In accordance with The Consumer Contracts Regulation you are entitled to a 14 day cooling of period from the day of booking. If you choose to cancel please let us know in writing within this period for a full refund. Please see terms and conditions

Do I need to bring a model for training courses?

No you don't. In our experience students learn just as much being a model and having the treatment done on themselves. The groups are small and your tutor will make sure you work with all the group.

Can I park easily?

Yes there is ample free parking, so no more scrambling around looking for change to put in the meter and even better no need to rush off at the end of the day.

Ive never been on a retreat and am not sure what to expect.

Our one day retreats are perfect for people who are a little nervous about what to expect. Our retreats are non judgemental and have no religious slant. They are a time for you. They can help bring balance back into your life and help you focus on all that is important to you.
