a lack of expert training in the area, leading to recognised qualifications
and membership of recognised professional bodies in the therapies
offered, and therefore is responding to the need for high quality
training in the Yorkshire area.
The School offers an open and caring atmosphere, which engenders
feelings of enjoyment in learning, and an awareness of self-development
and aims to provide programmes of extensive practical and theoretical
studies in each of the courses offered.
