Who this course is for?

This course is for students new to aromatherapy and existing practitioners wishing to up-skill or add the the treatments that they offer. Students will learn about the properties of essential oils and what they can be used for. The types of carrier oil that are used with the essential oils when using them for a massage. How to blend oils and make balms and lotions.

Why study with New Skills for Change

Our classes are small, with no more than 10 students. We can offer ‘live’ training at our head office, King Street Therapy Rooms, which is a working clinic. Students will be invited to participate by working on existing clients who use the centre therefore helping the student to develop their skills and experience what it is like to work in a clinic. Client treatments can be used as part of the students case study requirement.

All of our tutors are working in the industry and are up to date with new trends, they all hold a recognised teaching qualification.

We pride ourselves in being friendly and approachable.  Students should expect to be supported throughout their course and we are committed to ensuring that they are. 


The ITEC Aromatherapy course is an internationally recognised qualification. This means that if you wanted to you could practice abroad. ITEC qualifications are highly respected and recognised as being a qualification that will give the student in-depth and expert knowledge of their subject. 

Career and Progression

There are many ways in which students can progress after they have gained their qualification. Many more companies are using complementary therapists to offer wellbeing programmes to their staff and bring in a therapist or group of therapists to work within the company for a day. This would normally be on a self employed basis and sessional, meaning that they would be hired for a set session ie 4 hours. The NHS is recognising the benefits of complementary therapy for their patients more and more and it is not uncommon for midwives to recommend a therapy for mums to be. Palliative care, oncology and stress and depression clinics are all agreeing to patients using complementary therapy to help them while they are being treated. Hotels and spas now offer treatments as standard and employ complementary therapists as part of their team. There are many paths to using your qualification and this is a very exciting time for new and established therapists.

Should the student decide that they want to add to their qualification and study another therapy after qualifying the anatomy and physiology component would not have to be studied or examined again. This part of the course is transferable to other ITEC courses including sports massage, reflexology and Reiki.
