Complementary Health

There are a wide range and ever-growing variety of complementary therapy and beauty courses you can enrol onto here at Morley College.

Whether you wish to sample an introductory course to whet your appetite, complete a course in order to work with family and friends or even train to be a qualified practitioner, we are here to help you on your own unique therapy journey. 

We are proud to say that our tutors are held in high regard in their individual subject areas, and if you would like to change career and work as a therapist they can give you the support and training for you to do so.         

We run a range of CIBTAC accredited Complementary Therapy and Beauty Diploma courses that you can receive funding assistance with. Once you are accepted onto any of the Level 3 Diploma courses, you are able to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover the whole cost of your course.

Morley College is accredited by the Complementary Health Professionals (CHP), which means that successful completion of any or all of the Aromatherapy, Massage and Reflexology courses you would be able to register with both this professional association as well as with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the regulatory body in the UK.

Why study Complementary or Beauty Therapies at Morley:

Morley College has been training therapists for over 30 years and we are proud to be associated with a number of leading bodies including the Complementary health Professionals, National Guild of Hypnotists and City and Guilds and CIBTAC

Whether you wish to obtain an insight into various therapies and how they work or achieve a diploma to practice you can:

  • Network with like-minded adult students
  • Gain a deeper insight of your therapy from your tutor who will have experience of working in their own private practice, often in specialist areas
  • Find opportunities to work in a voluntary environment whilst training 
  • Progress to opportunities of employment once you have successfully completed your Level 3 course. 

Whilst studying at Morley students will have an opportunity to work in a voluntary capacity at a variety of specialist organisations in the London area, this will allow students to gain knowledge of their therapy as well as work in a realistic setting.  Students may also have an opportunity to complete some of their case studies in a specialist treatment room that will be made available at Stockwell Centre this will better prepare students for their progression to work in a clinic environment once they have achieved their qualification to practice.

So what are you waiting for? Step off of the treadmill and enrol onto one of our complementary therapy or beauty courses and you will be surprised by the balancing and grounding effect working as a practitioner can have on your own health.
