I can highly recommend studying with Green Tara College. I have completed a year long diploma in reflexology which I thoroughly enjoyed. The course is well structured with knowledgeable tutors and excellent supporting material e.g. Moodle and manuals. The practical aspect is well supervised enabling students to feel confident and competent to work upon completion of the course. The course also incorporated all aspects of starting up your own business which was really worthwhile. There are very good opportunities for post graduate courses to extend knowledge and skills which will enhance your business. I will definitely be undertaking further courses with Green Tara College in the future.

Amazing college with wonderful teachers. I was apprehensive about going back to college after so many years but one phone call with Majella put my mind at ease and I'm so glad I took the step. Such a great atmosphere to learn in I would highly recommend Greentara

Amazing course, perfect balance of information and practice. Majella is a fantastic teacher and so in tune with each student. She created a wonderful space for us all to feel safe and supported in and ensured that each of us were equipped to practice this beautiful new skill. The passion for Reiki, compassion towards each person and deep knowledge that Majella demonstrated throughout the course combined to make this an incredibly special experience that I will not forget. In addition, the training content and post course supports enable each person to continue on their journey with Reiki in a supported way, in the way that’s right for them going forward. Would highly recommend!
