Mental Health Matters
Mental Health First Aid was developed by MHFA England, this two-day course qualifies attendees as mental health first aiders. All attendees will get a deep understanding of what mental health is and what factors can affect wellbeing. The course teaches practical skills to spot the signs of mental illness and gives you the confidence to step in and support a person who needs assistance. Our professional tutor has years of experience of working with and listening to people and is tailoring our course to those who work in the Health and Wellbeing field whilst maintaining the integrity of the course syllabus itself.
Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised training course, developed by NHS England and designed to teach you how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and provide help on a first aid basis. The course is delivered by a quality assured instructor.
Our course will:
- Give a deeper understanding of the issues that impact on and relate to people’s mental health;
- Teach practical skills that can be used every day, including being able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues and feel confident guiding people towards appropriate support.
Independent research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA course:
- Raises awareness and mental health literacy
- Reduces stigma around mental ill health and feel confident guiding people towards appropriate support
- Boosts knowledge and confidence in dealing with mental health issues
- Encourages people to start a conversation with a person who may be experiencing a mental health issue
- Promotes early intervention which enables recovery MHFA won’t teach you how to be a therapist, but you will be able to say you’re a Mental Health First Aider.
This is a 2 day classroom based course. (Dependant on the learner’s experience, there may well be some pre-course or post-course reading.)
On completion of the course, delegates will receive a MHFA Mental Health First Aider certificate and full Manual.
Please Note: This course is subject to a minimum of 10 attendees.
Courses & Workshops.
There are so many wonderful and amazing therapists out there that it's not always easy to know who to turn to. And that's where your marketing comes in. A well-designed website will speak to your ideal client and using social media in an effective way can drive more clients to your website as well as promoting your offers and events.
However, we have noticed that not all therapists are confident with using, or knowing how to use, social media and marketing to its best advantage. Or why it's important to have a good website.
With this in mind we offer a range of stand-alone or package workshops to help you build that confidence and get yourself working with the options available to you to best promote you and your business.
As professional aromatherapists ourselves we know the importance of updating your skill set regularly. We also know how easy it is to become comfortable with using a small selection of oils when there is a huge range of oils to enjoy. Our aim is to offer you a range of courses and workshops that will give you new and unusual ways of looking at Aromatherapy whilst updating your knowledge.
Our courses are tailored to offer you a range of options, for all budgets, and give you interesting and informative ways of working with essential oils. You can choose to learn in the comfort of your own home, with no time restrictions; or if you prefer learning with others we run a number of courses and workshops throughout the year from our base in the lovely spa town of Harrogate. Should you wish us to come to you please contact us and we can discuss the T&Cs.

Having trained to achieve the ITEC Diploma in Aromatherapy with Sylvia as a wonderful tutor, I found the course interesting and inspiring. The warm and knowledgeable tuition has provided me with a great foundation from which to develop this wonderful area of complementary therapy.
