  1. I am curious about this course also and wondering which one would suit me best. Could you send me information on this course as well please.

  2. Hello

    When does the next therapist course start? For 2023? So I can get organized and figure out how to get there,
    What does 5×2 days mean? I have a long way to go. Does this mean two (five days) of attending?
    Thank you


    • Hi Karen,
      Thanks for getting in touch
      We have not finalised dates for 2023 yet.
      To answer your question: 5 x 2 = means 5 weekends and 2 x 5 means = 2 x 5 day training intensives. Students must also attend some student clinic days and an exam weekend. I can send you the dates of our next Therapies course once it is finalised.
      Kind regards,
