Training

Amethyst Holistic Therapy Training offers fast track training to practitioner level in a wide range of holistic and beauty therapies. We train small groups and individuals so training is highly personalised ensuring one to one attention not found in large classes in a college situation. Training is aimed at both students who are new to therapies and experienced therapists wishing to expand their range. The professional but friendly, informal setting and individual tuition ensures a high standard of training delivery. All courses are accredited by the Professional Beauty Guild and Guild of Holistic Therapists so are fully insurable.

Most courses start at 10.30 am, please refer to your confirmation email. Please arrive by 10;15 but no earlier to allow time for room preparation. Course finish time is usually around 4.30 but may vary. If you are the only student on the course we will finish earlier because you are practising on your model, but not practicing and swapping with another student. If there is an odd number of students in the class we may run over time. Some courses are run over half a day eg Lash & Brow Treatments. These start at 10:30 am and finish at 1:30 pm.

Everything is provided for your course – towels, oils etc. You will receive a comprehensive manual containing all the theory and routine for the treatment you are learning. For Lash Perm and Lash & Brow Treatment courses you will need to bring your kit if you have done your patch test at home and are using a different kit to the one provided by your tutor. Please check with your tutor before attending the course. If you are studying Swedish Massage, Holistic Massage, Aromatherapy or Reflexology you will need to bring your certificate in Anatomy & Physiology (or equivalent). If you are studying Hot Stone Massage you will need to bring your certificate in massage. Please bring a packed lunch unless your tutor has told you that lunch can be bought nearby to the venue. Tea and coffee are provided.

If you have a salon uniform you can wear that, lots of students prefer to. If not, please wear comfortable clothing that allows ease of movement for giving treatments. If you have long hair this needs to be tied up. Nails should be clean, short and free of polish or extensions. Jewellery should be restricted to small stud earrings and a wedding band.

It is normal to feel a little anxious before we do something completely new to us. However, our tutors are all qualified teachers and are experts in their field. They will put you at your ease and ensure that you feel comfortable in your learning. Relax and enjoy your course.

Please read Terms & Conditions on Amethyst Holistic Training. All payments are non-refundable. If you have to postpone your attendance you will be transferred to the next available course.

Amethyst courses are designed so that you learn essential theory including Health & Safety relevant to the subject and how to carry out a consultation. This part of the day usually takes 45 minutes – 1 hour. The remainder of the day/s is practical so that you can learn your routine – this involves practising giving a treatment and unless it is a one to one you will also receive a treatment while your partner practises on you.

Your tutor will be available by email or phone if you have any questions after you have done the course.

The vast majority of students will pass their course. Successful students will be sent their certificate by Head Office a few days after their course. Occasionally a student may not pass. In this situation, case studies will be set and re-assessment arranged. There may be an extra charge for this.

Amethyst tutors will travel to do in house training in your salon or therapy room. Travel time and fuel costs will be incurred; please discuss this with your tutor.
