I have recently achieved my VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology having completed my training with Dee Kelsall at Greenhouse Therapies.
The training was extremely intense in order to incorporate all of the required elements for the course.  It was delivered with professionalism, expertise and humour which maximised my learning potential.  I found Dee’s knowledge and experience to be vast and the support and commitment she offered to me following my course and in the run up to completion was invaluable. Thank you so much Dee
