What our students say

20th Anniversary Congratulations from Tony Edwards! Course-writer and Tutor

I became involved with the School of Natural Health Sciences 15 years ago.  Subsequently, I have written many courses for them and Tutor those students studying my subjects. I joined forces because the School was maintaining a very high professional standard; I was impressed with their image and dedication.

Mind you, in those days the school was providing fewer courses but the students were just as dedicated as were the School’s very ‘professional staff’. Since those days the School has continuously revised and improved its courses as well as adding many new ones. The standards of the School today remain very high. They have over 60 distance learning subjects.

As The School of Natural Health Sciences now has 20 years of experience in teaching natural health subjects, this in no way means that we can rest on our laurels. In fact, our ever increasing student body makes the work even more challenging and motivating.

Another thing that also springs to my mind is the way in which the School’s website has undergone such an amazing transformation. In the early days it was a relatively simple affair whereas to day it is very polished and provides excellent explanation of all the School’s study procedures and courses. Furthermore, through the website, the potential student is made aware of a whole range of special multiple course offers enabling a complete programme of study to be undertaken – Course Packs  It is because of these course combinations, that the intending student can take advantage of ‘major cost savings’. Also through the website, the student can read about the achievements of others on our Graduates Page

It gives me a buzz to tell you that I have tutored and interacted with many, many of our students from all walks of life, all over the world. I find this a most rewarding experience as the students are all, without exception, keen to learn.

Discussion with students, and obtaining feedback from them, is a vital part of providing ‘distance learning education’. It is this interaction that enables us to design and write courses that are suitable for distance learning. One must always keep in mind that a distance learning student works alone at home, with only the course material. Occasionally, this can mean that what is very obvious to the course writer may not be immediately obvious to the student. Consequently, the course writer has to think very hard about the very nature of the material that is being provided and its ability to convey the correct teaching in the distance learning environment.

To conclude, I must say that nothing gives me greater pleasure than working with the School and hearing from students who tell me how much they have enjoyed their courses. I also like to hear of their future plans and to hear their success stories.

Congratulations to everyone at the School on this 20th Anniversary. We all aim for even greater things during the next 20 years.

Hello Julia,

I have just completed the Aromatherapy and Professional Relaxation Therapy. Now I am working on Advanced Aromatherapy and Reflexology courses with the School of Natural Health Sciences.

If you are in any doubt that an online course is in anyway less informative or not as good as face to face attendance I would say think again, these courses are so in depth and the knowledge you gain is effective as you are taking your own time to absorb it.

The practicals are where you do your own learning and any questions I had where answered promptly.

I am running an 8 week relaxation course in my local family resource centre starting at the end of the month- thanks to the course! It was so informative and I’ll be passing on the information and guiding the group with all the skills I’ve learned, guiding me into a new line of work!

I have also got a job in the spa of a local hotel! I am still developing my business as well – however the hotel are delighted by my holistic therapy skills and I will be using them in the spa. I am so excited about this.

It has boosted my own personal confidence after a difficult few years of health issues that I have not only helped myself but can study and achieve something in my life again.

Thank you again to the School of Natural Health Sciences.

Dear Julia

A very happy and prosperous New Year to you – and congratulations on your Schools’ 20th birthday … testament to all your hard work over the years and a very good reason to celebrate – here’s to the next 20 years J!

As ever, a heart-felt thank you for your continued support over time.  Looking at the website, I appreciate I’m not the only one who has benefitted so much from your input but, again, testament that you’re doing something right!  When I consider just how many lives you have touched over the years and how much ‘good’ you are doing, it is very heart-warming … and long may it continue!

I hope you had a very pleasant Festive Season and a well-deserved break (?!), and that all is well in your world …

With my very best and warmest wishes for 2017, to your brilliant staff as well as yourself, and thanks again as always …

Kind regards
Julia xx

Hi Helen,

Thank you again for your all your help and professionalism finding and duplicating my damaged certificate, so promptly and so effortlessly.
I hadn’t realised it was 20 years ago since I was first introduced to “The School of Natural Health Sciences.”
I would like to take this opportunity to thank “SNHS ” for the courses which fired my interest all those years ago (1997) in how the mind works. It started me off on a long and exciting journey in psychotherapy and metaphysics, and a career which never ceases to amaze me.
Your courses have expanded over the years and your new website is easy to navigate. I will certainly continue to recommend you to my friends and colleagues .

Congratulations and best wishes to all your team on your 20th anniversary.

Kind Regards,

Good Morning Ms Julia

Many, many thanks for sending to me the certificate and the letter of congratulations on my final exam in Advanced Nutrition, delighted to have achieved a Distinction award. Wow I can’t believe my results. I have received the highest achieved results from The School. Thank you so much.

I thank the entire team of School of Natural Health Sciences for assisting and guiding me to get through the course. My tutor Dr Tony Edwards is a brilliant tutor and I have received tremendous information from him. Ms Lynn has been excellent at guiding me through Administration and has always helped and replied quickly to any of my queries. Ms Julia you have a ‘excellent team’ and thank you for creating an online learning foundation which has given people like me, the opportunity to study from overseas and start a new ‘career path’. I am looking forward to signing up for the natural “Herbalism ” course.

Once again thanking the entire team at the School of Natural Health Sciences.

Kind Regards

Hi Julia:

Thank you for the notification regarding my Grade A pass for the final exam in Homoeopathy. I wanted to let you know that I plan on continuing studies with SNHS once I complete coursework in Osteopathy.

I have truly enjoyed the two courses taken through SNHS (Herbalism and Homoeopathy) and look forward to completing more. I found both courses to be very well written and well organized. As indicated in my recent final exam, my Homoeopathy first aid kit contains 19 homoeopathic remedies and Bach’s Rescue Remedy. Interestingly, I have used several remedies for family members, mostly grandchildren, with outstanding results (bee stings, bruises, respiratory aliments, nose bleeds, etc.). Without a doubt, SNHS courses coupled with my prior training have prepared me to be a much better holistic health provider.

Again, I thank you and your staff for offering high quality courses in natural medicine, modalities and health.

Best wishes,
