Hello Team,

Many thanks for sending news of my grade A pass in Nutrition.  I have really enjoyed the course, and learned a great deal about the human digestion and its requirements. Mr Tony Edwards (course writer and Tutor) certainly delivers a good course and a really good challenge.

I’ve loved it. I will be taking the advanced course now!

thank you.

Dear Julia,

I’m delighted with this award in CBT and looking forward to framing my certificate. It will be very positive to focus upon whilst studying for other diplomas that I have started with you at SNHS.

My intention is to begin by attending the Samaritans open morning on July 8th, and gain, after their training, some useful practices, by volunteering as a Listener.

Eventually, I aim to set up as a part time practitioner in CBT, and also complete my diploma in Meridian Psychotherapy to compliment the CBT.

Many thanks to you and the staff at SNHS.

Thank you so much for your email and kind words about my ‘Distinction award’ in Psychotherapy and Counselling.

I will certainly be continuing my studies with you, George my Tutor has suggested Mindfulness and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), as they complement Psychotherapy and Counselling.

I have really enjoyed my courses with you, both George and Margaret have been fantastic tutors, they both gave me so much support which enabled me to finish each course.

Please give a special thanks to George, I couldn’t have completed without his support and kind words of encouragement, he has been more help to me then he will ever know.

Kind regards,

Hello Julia,

I am happy to share my experience studying for Aromatherapy course with the School of Natural Health Sciences.

The course was a good introduction into the subject with well structured handouts that gave me guidance while making me look for more information independently.

The flexibility of learning new holistic skills in my own time suits me well. The School has an extensive program for anyone wishing to learn holistic healing craft. Your feedback on my papers was always prompt and brief and I also appreciate your availability on the phone.

I look forward to continuing my collaboration with the School.

Many thanks for your support so far,

Kind Regards

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, Professional Relaxation Therapy, 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 were 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
