Our Home Learning Courses have been created complete with fully illustrated and annotated training manuals. Students are required to complete a test, client form and case studies. Upon successful completion students are awarded our accredited Therapy Training School Diploma.
We have several trained staff who deliver courses for us across the UK.
They have all undergone our unique teacher induction training and are highly qualified, professional and the best in their field.
Karen Hemmings - Principal & Owner
My interest in Complementary Health therapies began in the mid-1980s with the study and practice of a broad range of healing therapies for my own personal health and well-being. I came to realise that there is an extraordinary potential for transformation which healing therapies can have on a person's quality of life.
Wanting to share these experiences with others I began to practice some of these therapies in 1991 and since 2002 in collaboration with Karl Hemmings I have been expanding this practice to reach out to as many people as possible, not only in the UK but all around the world.
I believe that healing therapies should be accessible to everyone, everywhere in the world and I endeavour to offer information and training to enable and empower anyone who wishes to heal themselves and others.
Karl Hemmings - Managing Director and Web Master
I began Yoga studies in 1982 whilst studying Alexander Technique and music in London. Over the years I have practiced and taught many styles of yoga including Hatha, Vini, Kundalini, Power Yoga and others.
I studied various healing arts including Reiki and other forms of natural healing with various Asian, Middle Eastern and European masters and enthusiasts. In 1990 I began teaching Yoga, Reiki, and Health & Fitness. From 1995 I expanded my skills base into other areas including Ayurveda, Shamanism, Energetic Exercises (Qigong) and sound therapy.
Tiffany Cartlidge - Administration Manager
I have many years of experience in Customer Service & Administration. Working for various companies over time, I have built up a good reputation with customers and often been praised on the rapport I have with people in general. I have always had an interest in massage and thoroughly enjoy speaking to students and assisting them when they book on one of our courses.
As well as working in my day job, I am also a musician and composer. I write electronic music, which I sell via my website. Recently I collaborated on a very exciting project with Karl Hemmings, in which we wrote specific Chakra music, which you can hear on our sister site www.TherapyRelaxationMusic.com
Marie Grant -
An interest in holistic and beauty therapy for me began upon leaving secondary education. Whilst studying beauty therapy in 2004, I was given the opportunity to expand my knowledge with students specialising in body massage and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In the future, I aim to develop my qualifications within holistic therapies.
From customer service to recruitment, I have experience within many aspects of administration. I enjoy liaising with students and preparing them for their training whether it be a new adventure or expanding their current skills.
Along with being a member of the TTS team, I enjoy crochet, creating blankets and such items for family and friends. I find crochet very therapeutic and feel a sense of achievement once each project is complete.
