What our students say

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,

Hi Julia,

Loved the course(s) on Nutrition, and in fact loving all the courses I have done and am currently doing.  Excellent instruction at an unbeatable price, and all at a time and pace that suits me personally.  With sincerest thanks for this amazing opportunity to study and become accredited, to put learned skills to use.

I have looked at a lot of study stuff  ‘out there’, and have wholeheartedly promoted your school, as you actually give students something to take forward. Both in knowledge, accreditation, and application. Not all other courses offer that, and as I said, at an incredibly competitive price.

I like the fact that the courses are set out in a particular format, so the student, once familiar with it, knows exactly what to expect, and how to plan their studies and chart their course by answering very relevant questions before taking the exams

All the courses I have chosen to take have been supportive of each other, with subjects crossing over, and consequently, providing a much bigger picture, and with a fuller understanding, the penny has dropped a lot faster!

I am a mature student, having reached 68 years last month,  but I don’t feel in any way excluded, or unable to achieve these qualifications because of my age. I have always believed in alternative therapies as a solution to the level of dis-ease in the western world, and it is a delight to be able to back those beliefs with sound knowledge, understanding and now, application.

Blessings, more success, and thank you again.

Hi Julia,

I must tell you the real difference your Nutrition course made to my diabetic husband who was struggling to keep his blood sugar levels in an acceptable range.

The clinic advised he would need to increase his insulin units and the number of injections to two a day. He had already seen his insulin units go from 28 up to 49 units over a period of time. His activity levels were very poor also and he was becoming depressed.

After studying your nutrition course and making alterations to his diet, his blood sugar levels came down from 20 gradually to 5 and 6.  It was amazing to watch and I even doubted it as I thought maybe his monitor was faulty.

A new monitor gave me the same lower readings and so I began to lower his insulin units and his level is now 30. That is a decrease of 19 units of insulin a day , almost 140 units per week.

When he attended the clinic I went in with him and the doctor could not believe her eyes. She did her own test and was amazed at the results. She checked his monitor and could see for herself the gradual decrease from the last clinic. We told her of course that it was all down to your course and gave her the referral for other diabetics and family members who might want to study the same course.

So, Julia, a huge big thank you, because it has changed his life. He is happier, healthier, much more active than he ever was and really enjoying his life now. Huge big hugs from us here in Ireland.

Kindest regards,

Hi,

I would like to thank you all so much for producing such an amazing course that not only is a brilliant ‘stand alone’ course for therapists, it can also be incorporated into every other holistic/complementary therapy both in a formal and informal way – to suit the individual needs of the client.

Mindfulness is about acknowledging what is happening in the present moment; focussing and embracing on the moment/s without fear, pain, anxiety, judgement and without listening to the ‘negative chatter’ of our mind which can cause much of the pain that we suffer.   It also helps us to understand that our subconscious mind occupies 90% of our mind, meaning that our conscious mind occupies only 10% of our mind.

Mindfulness impacts on the personal aspects of my life in many ways and what is interesting is that it was not until I began to study Mindfulness I realised I was already learning how to use some of these techniques as part of an evolutionary process in the healing of my own body and mind in my recovery from breast cancer.  As such, the study of Mindfulness has been and continues to be an amazing personal, therapeutic, intelligent, healing process for me that makes so much sense, as well as being integral to everything that I will be doing as a therapist/practitioner.

Thank you for the help and support and for awarding me a ‘A grade with distinction’ for this course.  I loved studying it so much and it is now included into my daily life as well as being incorporated into all my therapies – either formally or informally dependent upon each individual client’s needs.

Hi to you all,

The School of Natural Sciences has provided knowledge for many learners around the world and keeps up with this incredible work. Each Course is different from the others and with many variants. There are specific offers for each month which give the chance to many people worldwide to learn more and more, according to their interests. All offers are in logical and reasonably priced, without any fruitless promises. Even the Self-Studied Programmes are guided through the kind, polite and genial staff without strict deadlines and pressure, a major factor for people who are busy. The Principal always contacts the learners – something I hadn’t seen in any College before.

I now have my own office through the specializations I took from the S.N.H.S. and I collaborate with an Institution practising with people who suffer from financial problems in Greece. I am going to keep having the amazing experience of this kind of learning, as knowledge never stops. I became aware of how to keep records and feedback from my clients and through the assignments, I immersed in the Professional meaning of working. I name this School “the School of Knowledge and Politeness”. Each activity teaches you something specific and – as we might know – we always have to keep up to date with Science and Education in general. I would like to continue with my Studies here and I am proud of choosing them. Based in Athens, Greece, sometimes it is difficult to find such an opportunity to learn and have your own office, as well.

Hope more people will have this experience. It is in your hands.

As William Shakespeare once said: “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves”.

Hi Julia,

Many, many thanks for offering such great courses!  I have thoroughly enjoyed the Life Coaching course, so pleased to have passed with a Grade A. I will probably wish to pursue the advanced course too. I am also qualified in Indian Head Massage from you. Been using it in my practice for a few years now!

It took me a little longer than planned with this course but I got there!

Hello Julia,

Thank you so much for your email, Diploma and Letter. Achieving a ‘Distinction’ award for Business & Marketing for Holistic Therapists has brought tears of joy today  … I am so pleased beyond words.

Please thank my Tutor Margaret as well for all her time with me.  She has been such a pleasure to study with.

I am almost finished the Aromatherapy and close to the end of the Holistic Skincare Products courses as well. Then I have another 4 courses to choose once I finish these.

I thought I was crazy, juggling the kids, the household, business and the studies altogether, pushing myself and dedicating hours per day to get through it – But it can be done with hard work.

Thank you again for making my day!

Kind Regards

Dear Julia,

Thank you very much for your email and the results of my Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) exam.  I am over the moon and thrilled that I achieved a grade A.  It is all down to your wonderful courses and how they are presented.  They are so enjoyable to read and I have learnt a lot from them.

The courses I am currently working on are so inspiring and informative.  I am so pleased I made the choice to study with you.

Thank you so much.
