Essential Solutions School of Complementary Therapy NottinghamWelcome To Essential Solutions School of Complementary Therapies

Caroline teaches Body Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology Diploma level qualifications to practitioner level, accredited by specialist awarding organisation VTCT (Vocational Training Charitable Trust). VTCT qualifications are mapped to National Occupational Standards and are highly recognised within the  complementary and beauty therapy industry.

Alongside the diplomas, Caroline runs Certificates in Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Thermal Auricular Therapy, all of which will gain you a qualification to enable you to obtain insurance and practice as a qualified therapist and also to become a member of a recognised professional body such as the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT).  Established in 2014, Essential Solutions has gone from strength to strength and we now run more courses than ever before.

These accredited courses are held at our centre in Kimberley, Nottingham, just five minutes from J26 of the M1. We also run regular taster and refresher courses, so whether you are new to holistic therapy, or familiar with the concept and want to develop your training further, we are sure that Essential Solutions has something for you.

“I’m really enjoying the course….. fascinating stuff to learn, lovely people, lots of laughs and the best selection of herbal teas in Kimberley!!” – Suzanne – February 2019

“I thought it was a wonderful balance of information, discussion and visual aids.  A lovely course and I wouldn’t have changed a thing!  Caroline is a wonderful teacher with a great depth of knowledge on the subject.  Even though I’ve been a nurse for 27 years, the course has taught me loads.  I love the emphasis on the body as a whole, it makes so much sense.  Thank you for the course and for you, Caroline, with your humour, wisdom and knowledge.”  Claire – December 2018

“Just to say a big thank you!  Without the flexibility Caroline offers, I would not have been able to consider a course like this around work and childcare commitments.  She has been there for me every step of the way with any help or support needed.” Julie October 2018

“I’ve been taking a VTCT Massage course with Caroline and it’s been a great experience so far. Caroline offers an in-depth program that is conducted in small groups making the learning experience more interactive. She is also very flexible and will do her best to work around your schedule and the other students as much as she can, making it a stress-free environment. I highly recommend Caroline and her school Essential Solutions if you want to ensure you are getting the best complementary therapy program that will enable you to work anywhere once your diplomas are complete.” Student Review – January 2018
