Student Feedback

Our reputation has been built on the satisfaction of the many students who we have been privileged to teach over the years, and many of our new bookings are from personal recommendation.  The following excerpts are all taken from student feedback, and are included with permission.

“I really enjoyed the Manicure & Pedicure course.  As we reached the middle of the day I was already happy to have chosen London Therapists.  The environment was really friendly and personal.  I had the chance to practice and review everything I was learning at my pace.  I also liked the fact that the advice and recommendations concerning products and services are unbiased.  I left the course so confident that I started practicing on family members and friends the very next day.  Sarah, the trainer is a caring, professional and very open person. She shares her knowledge and experience and she thinks outside the box.  I learned a lot and I will definitely come back for more courses.”  Lidia Lima


"I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the facial course, as I have all of the courses I've been on with you.  Last night I was phoning people to say how fantastic the course was and generally share my enthusiasm!  I've also ordered the hot stone kit and Thai kit bundle, so I shall be booking to do the Hot Stone course later today. Thank you for making these courses so wonderful. I think I am addicted! It's nice to be taught by someone who doesn't simply 'toe the line', as I fear it would be taught in a college. I'm already looking forward to doing my next course with you."  Julia Welch

“London Therapists provided me an outstanding service.  Claire arranged for me to attend my chosen Holistic training course, despite my very late request, and she even managed to arrange 1 to 1 training in a separate Spa therapy course around my limited availability. My tutor Sarah was excellent, very professional and extremely patient in guiding me, as Holistic and Spa therapies were completely new to me. Sarah’s additional detailed advice on products, suppliers and running a holistic/beauty business has also enabled me to rapidly and successfully expand my current business. I will definitely be recommending your courses to anyone else interested in qualifying in Holistic and Spa therapies .Caroline Bain – "The Foot Professional", Lincolnshire

"We drove home yesterday on a cloud!  Thank you so much, Claire, for the couples massage workshop.  We felt very strongly that you really gave us more than simple money could buy. I cannot tell you how happy it makes me that attaining that lovely, relaxed feeling is now literally in our own hands! I only glanced at the certificate yesterday, noting how pretty it was, but read it properly today and the phrase "joyfully given the gift of massage" seemed spot on. We feel blessed that you were our guide." Mary and Stephen Garner

" I just wanted to give you some feedback on the Reiki and Indian Head Massage package.  Sarah is an amazing tutor and she made our learning experience interesting, informative and fun. We are really glad we had the opportunity to meet with her and share such a great experience. We would definitely recommend Sarah to any prospective students." - Isabel Almeida

"My Thai Foot Massage course with Sarah in Haslemere was fantastic.  Sarah made the lesson so interesting, constructive and in general, tuition was outstanding.  I would highly recommend her and I would love to book again any forthcoming courses with  London Therapists" -  Joanna Ragoussi-Hart

"I just wish to thank you for such an excellent training day. Not only was it professionally executed, l came away feeling top of the world, relaxed and mentally alert. I will endeavour to practice the skill you passed on, allowing others to have the the benefits." - Christine Baston
 
"An excellent course, well delivered.  Your tutor explains the process simply and patiently, and allows time for you to work at your own pace.  She always makes time for questions and is clear in her answers. She is warm and approachable and makes the learning process enjoyable." - Sal Margetts and Paul Walkden
 
"I found both courses excellent in delivery with friendly and helpful tutors, both of whom were happy to answer any questions and ensure we were confident and competent in practice. Ample materials were given for further home study. Classes were small enough for students to have individual attention. I look forward to attending a further course, and would highly recommend yourselves to others." - Pauline Rowe
 
"We found the course very informative, and it was easy to understand the fundamentals behind the therapy and the benefits to the therapist and the client.  A great day and unlike any other training day - it was very comfortable and relaxed. The tutor was very professional, patient, encouraging and very easy to understand.  I liked the ethos of your company - your professionalism and your speedy response to my original enquiry." - Jason Kinrade
 
"Very interesting and informative, in a relaxed atmosphere.  Nichola explained everything fully and we were given ample opportunity to ask any questions and to go over anything we did not understand.  I felt the lesson was not at all rushed. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would not hesitate to book a further course." - Annette Davis
 
"Just a quick note of thanks to you all. As the only male present on a course such as this, where there is potential for embarassment for all concerned, I felt I was welcomed and a part of the group, not just a male presence that needed to be tolerated. It's good to feel that in a female dominated industry, the occasional man appearing on the scene doesn't have to put up the feeling of being ostracised or ridiculed. I just wish that the same could be said when it's the other way round. Thank you, Nicola, for a very instructive course. I now feel confident enough to practice without fear of damaging someone, and have signed up for some of the other courses too." - Chris Gutteridge
 
"I found Sarah very friendly and professional. The room was very calming, music was fantastic, lovely atmosphere. Thank you, I really enjoyed the course and hope to enjoy the next two courses as much. - Allison Liston
 
"An excellent course taught in small sections then finally brought together to give the full head massage. The course was well constructed and to the point. The course notes are also extremely informative. I have attended courses where the tutor has spent time on idle chit chat, strayed from the subject, also picked on students for answers which is inhibiting and very negative. I've also had to write copious notes! Angela was so to the point and was very positive throughout. I'm glad that I have found you and look forward to seeing other courses you will have to offer in the future. " -  Val Cox
 
"The tutor was calm, interesting, positive, caring and helpful. As a teacher myself I appreciate and recognise quality instruction - it was of the highest quality" - Thea Watkins
 
"Very enjoyable, and left me confident to try massage on friends and family.  Professional, friendly, and a very competent teacher." - Chris Porter
 
"Courses are suitable for those with no experience. The materials are very good and the tutor is supportive. Nothing to fear." - Susan Staines
 
"The therapies learnt are very enjoyable to receive and to give.  It is not often that I have come across such a lovely combination, giving the therapist the feeling of having had therapy themselves." - Theresa McVicar
 
"Fresh from a great day spent doing the Eastern Facial course. A thoroughly good day where I learnt so much not only about Eastern Facial massage but also other little nuggets of experience  which will help me in my journey in complimentary therapies.  The venue was good and easy to find. Your tutor was not only very professional but had warmth and a genuine nature. Looking forward to the Thai foot massage in August. Please send my regards and thanks once again." - Jane McKay
 
"It was nice to have a tutor who could give feedback on all delegates throughout the day, rather than having to wander around a larger group and not really seeing as much." - Claire Josephs
 
"I enjoyed learing a skill which is very unfamiliar to me.  The teaching was careful, slow and thorough.  The file of notes etc is extremely helpful and pads out what we learned on the day. "- Angela Davies
 
"This was first massage class I have attended and I was impressed A very pleasant experience with excellent trainer and lovely participants - thank you!" - Sharon Pendlebury
 
"I have attended other holistic courses, but Michelle is one of the most professional people I have encountered. I feel she is very knowledgeable and very concerned about training people in the right way. She is a very good teacher. I think short, affordable courses are good because they are more accessible for busy people." - Cara Henken
 
"The small classes are an excellent idea, you feel that you are getting enough attention and if you were doing anything wrong its spotted quicker whereas large classes don't get the same attention.  Certainly helped you learn the right techniques. I'll definitely be booking more courses, and keeping an eye on your website to see if any new courses are being added." - Catherine Sutherland
 
"Robert was great. He was warm and welcoming and did a great job teaching us the Thai Foot Massage. He has real people skills and does his job well. Good luck to Robert in everything that he does.  It was great that it was just 3 of us in the class as it allowed us to get used to one another and l would recommend it to a friend." - Trudi Hayes
 
"Aruna was very professional and warm. We had a great day.  It was lots of fun as well as being a great learning experience. A thank you to Aruna for a great day - we would definitely book with you again." - Sarah Llewellyn
