What our students say

I can’t say enough how much I enjoy studying with The School of Natural Health Sciences. Having gained my Diploma in Reflexology, I am now around half way through Advanced Reflexology.

The courses are very well structured, filled with information and the questions are challenging but so enjoyable to work through. I have found my studies with the School to be absolutely fascinating so far and I really do look forward to sitting down to continue my course at the end of each day. Of course, any distance learning is only as effective as the people who provide it and the School of Natural Health Sciences deliver help and support by the bucket load!

My tutor, Jayne, has been fantastic, providing constructive, helpful and kind guidance throughout and any questions or additional help I have required have always been answered quickly and clearly. It really has been like having a tutor in the room with me! Many thanks for everything so far Jayne!

In conclusion I honestly can’t praise the School enough. The courses are brilliant and they really do make distance learning so easy and enjoyable. Many institutions would do well to learn from their example! I started studying with the school because at the age of 30 I was looking for a new direction in life.

Many distance learning courses promise this but fail to deliver. However, because of the wonderful courses I have undertaken so far and with the support of my tutor and the staff at the School, I feel I am genuinely learning the skills to start a new life. I look forward to continuing studying now and hopefully long into the future.

My name is Kathy Allen; I am British, but currently living in Brittany, France. I have had an interest in natural complimentary therapies for many years and discovered an aptitude for crystal healing.  I became fascinated by the healing energy of crystals and their incredible ability to bring balance, energy and healing, not only to humans but to animals too. My interest increased when I realised that crystals can have a positive impact, not only on the physical body but also on a person’s emotional and spiritual state too, bringing relief to those who feel stress, anxiety and depression, as well as alleviating physical illnesses.

I made the decision to undertake an accredited and recognized course in order to be able to practice legitimately and with the security of having a recognized qualification. I can’t wait to share the wonder of crystals with other people (and their pets!). I am greatly looking forward to starting my new practice in my specially designated Gîte (Annex) here in Brittany.

I am absolutely thrilled to bits to have achieved a grade ‘A’ pass with distinction for the Crystal Healing Course. I would like to thank my tutor, Tony Edwards, for his support and guidance throughout the entirety of the course. The course was informative, well written and sufficiently challenging without being too complex or out of reach.

I would recommend the School of Natural Health Sciences to anyone who seriously wants to learn more about Holistic Therapies.

Thank you School of Natural Health Sciences. I am now looking forwards to beginning my Aura and Chakra Energy Healing course and hope I can attain the same result.

Kind thanks,

Dear Julia,

Many thanks for your kind email. I am absolutely delighted with my Grade A pass with Distinction in Advanced Reflexology. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and have found it absolutely fascinating throughout.

Once again, thank you so much for such a wonderful course. Studying Reflexology with yourselves has given me the confidence and opportunity to get out of a bit of a career rut and start a new life as a holistic practitioner. I now plan to start operating as a mobile therapist in the new year. I also look forward to studying further with yourselves. Please pass my thanks and best wishes for Christmas on to Jayne who has been a fantastic tutor throughout.

Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year

SNHS provided excellent courses of study in the areas I was interested in: Herbology/Phytotherapy, Aromatherapy, and Flower Remedies. The courses are thorough and covered aspects I have found lacking in my previous studies. While they are not easy, with a little effort and time, I got through the courses I needed in less than a year while at the same time continuing with my other responsibilities. I am very happy with my choice to study with SNHS.

Thank you Julia for my final exam grade ‘A’ in Life Coaching. As usual it has been a delight doing your course and it’s been a couple of years since I completed other courses with your School.

I must say Julia that since starting my courses with you my life could not be better, we made the move to Ireland, we are opening a retreat and our quality of life could not be better.

At present I am using CBT on a client who suffers from extreme anxiety, from the offset I knew this was a difficult case however, results from this therapy are amazing. She has transformed from someone with zero confidence, low self-esteem, after 10 sessions her confidence is back, she is in control again and she has found her wings. She was being controlled by others around her who felt she was not capable and now she is well able to assert herself in a positive manner.

All I can say is I am so happy to have found your courses and taken the plunge to transform my life which in turn helps others.

My name is Daragh Browne and I am an Irish national living in Germany. I have been working as a self-employed language trainer for about 10 years in Germany. Before that I worked as a therapeutic assistant in a drug rehabilitation center.

After toying with the idea for a while, I decided to train as a coach and chose “The School of Natural Health Sciences” as a provider. I was and am very impressed with the effectiveness of C.B.T coaching and Life-Coaching. I am very interested in psychology and consider myself well-read on the topic, but I found that psychology provides a lot of diagnostic information though not enough solutions.

Due to my prior experience in the therapeutic field, I firstly thought it was a matter of going “through the motions” so to say. However, I was very wrong. My tutor opened my eyes to a ‘new horizon’ and showed me that some things take time. It dawned on me that coaching was a different “ballgame” to what I had been used to and I needed to rethink how I see situations in connection to coaching and positive results.

I found the interaction with my tutor to be very informative, efficient and gave me a chance to reflect on my work. It enabled me to learn new things, question old beliefs and move forward. I thought the course would be a lot easier than it was. I now feel equipped and ready to approach the world of coaching due to my courses.

Studying coaching was like a “eureka effect”. I thought to myself, this all makes sense and is pretty easy to apply. I could compare coaching to “positive psychology” and training your brain to be your friend. I was extremely impressed with the chapter on the Greek philosopher “Epictetus” and his way of coping with difficulties and his work as a teacher of mankind.

I will continue to learn with “The School of Natural Health Sciences” as I have been working in education for the last 10 years and education standards very much vary, I can recommend taking these courses.

I feel that this school has helped me further myself professionally and given me what I needed at a ‘fraction of the price in comparison to other providers’.

Dear Julia,

Thank you so much for such ‘great news’ and thank you for my ‘Distinction award’ in Sports Psychology and Dynamics!

I must say as a Kung Fu Elite coach that your Sports Psychology Diploma is a must and an invaluable tool to be used with my students. I am so proud to have enrolled this course.

Now I will focus on finishing Sports Nutrition (which I have to say; it is also a must for training) and start preparing my next courses.

All the best, and thanks so much for the teachings!

Hi Julia

May I say how much I have LOVED my course in Nutrition, delighted to have received a ‘distinction’ award – learning so much more about what I already love has only evoked deeper love and appreciation for my body and taking care of it. I hope to grow further and develop my business well so as to help as many people as I can!!

Thank you for taking the time to mark my papers and assignments and for this journey!

Hi Julia

Oh my goodness! – I’m so pleased to receive your lovely message and to hear that I passed with a Grade A, Distinction, I am chuffed to bits. This is a similar feeling that I had in 2002 when I sneaked a 2.1 in my 3 years BA Hons degree in Politics and French!

The Nutrition 50+ course was brilliant, so well written, and just suited the way I like to work. My little hobby for the last 45 years has been modelling and I belong to 9 model agencies throughout the UK, and so have always wanted to take reasonable care of my health, to scrub up well for the location shoots.  It is crazy how obese the country is becoming, so I’m hoping to combine modelling advice/deportment/presentation etc. with nutritional therapy.  Not quite sure how it will take place, but now I have more confidence to include Susie Godwin Nutrition on the Services page of my website – http://susiegodwin.com/ Clearly I must make a start on the 2nd course first 3 lessons in Business and Marketing which was kindly sent to me…!

Hi Julia,

I hope this email finds you well and having a great day.

Thank you so much for my grade that’s fantastic news I’m so happy.

I found this course so easy to follow, packed with information and really interesting. I have to say that my tutor Jayne is exceptional, her comments in every lesson were clear and added that extra information that I found so very helpful and very encouraging.

I intend to teach Mindfulness, to help others learn its calming techniques, so it can help them in the same way it’s helping me.

I am looking forward to my next course CBT and I hope to do just as well.

Thank you so much again and hope you have a wonderful weekend.
