Overall experience of the training.
My best ever decision when I emailed Jackie Hamilton back in 2011 about her upcoming Swedish Massage course. On all 3 Level 3 courses I learned so much and I’ve gained so much information and support that it can not be described in words.
When I was studying my Aromatherapy course I was going through one of the toughest times of my life. Having had a car accident in 2020 I started having panic attacks in 2021. A lot of times it wasn’t easy to focus because I was so tired for a few days after my panic attacks, but the great support, encouragement which I got at school or even outside of school days was amazing! I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for the excellence of the Jackie Hamilton School of Therapies. I had Dawn Dean as a tutor for all 3 of my courses (Massage, Reflexology and Aromatherapy) thanks to her knowledge and trust in me, I am the Therapist I am today.
Thank you Jackie Hamilton and Dawn Dean for becoming friends of mine for lifetime.
