Fully recognised Clinical Reflexology Diploma (blended learning)
What you will get:
You will achieve a full practitioners' diploma in clinical reflexology that is recognised by the CNHC. It complies with both the National Occupational Standards and the Reflexology Forum's Core Curriculum. Therefore, once qualified you will be able to practise, gain insurance and register with the CNHC as well as becoming a full member of Complementary Health Professionals and all the benefits this affords you as a therapist. You will be a sought after reflexologist who can work in any clinical setting.
What is better about blended learning and attending face to face training v. online only?
There are many courses available that are cheap and do not involve a great deal of effort or to attend any face to face training in a workshop - or perhaps just one day's training. You are given a video to learn a routine from. It is true that you can get insurance to practice from these courses but you are in no way considered a professional reflexologist in the eyes of the profession and would not be able to register with the regulatory body or join a recognised professional association like ourselves. However, the main point is that you cannot develop clinical skills from watching a video. You also should not just repeat the same routine on every client. You need to develop the skills that will allow you to become a thinking therapist who can treat each person individually and adapt their treatment for their needs and be able to recognise and treat pathological issues. You would not even think about going to a hairdresser who has learnt their trade by video let alone a therapist. So our course will give you the skills to become a trusted recognised therapist who will succeed in business.
Your Reflexology tutor is at the very top of her profession with over 20 years experience of professional practice and teaching as well as being involved in the writing of the standards mentioned above. Julie Quinn (pictured aside) will be your mentor and Personal Tutor all the way through you training and she was taught by the esteemed Renee Tanner and has worked with Renee for many years. Julie has set on the Reflexology Forum for the past 16 years and has contributed to shaping the UK Reflexology profession. She will mark and give full and detailed feedback on all of your coursework, as well as support you through your practical development of your skills at the workshops.
Workshops and training:
You will need to undertake 5 workshops in order to comply with the Reflexology Forum's Core Curriculum. Although you can complete this diploma within 10 months, you have two years from starting this course to completion so that you can work at your own pace. Regular workshops will be available and Julie will organise this with you direct. You will also have to book onto and pay for the examinations. You will normally book a separate A&P exam before you have completed your therapy studies. Once you have completed all of the modules and practical weekends, including all of the coursework and case studies, you are then ready to take your therapy theory and practical exams, which are held on one day. If you already have a recognised A&P diploma, you do not have to repeat it by doing ours. You will need to bring your completed portfolio to the practical exam to be signed off, which includes your case studies.
You will pay for each module as you go and can only request the next module once the previous one has been marked. The turn around for marking is very fast and is all done electronically. There are three anatomy, physiology and pathology modules, three reflexology modules a professional practice module and a business module. The latter two modules are currently being offered FREE of charge.
