10-month course, starting Monday 12 March 2018

As one of the UK's leading trainers in Aromatherapy and Essential Oil Science, NYR have developed a new diploma course that is specifically tailored towards existing qualified practitioners and body workers who want to integrate Aromatherapy into their current practice.

  • enhance your current practice
  • gain additional professional training
  • learn the therapeutics of over 70 essential oils

We've trained over 300 professional Aromatherapists over the years, many of whom go on to practice from our Therapy Rooms across the country.  This course is accredited by the IFPA, International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists, one of the largest professional aromatherapy practitioner organisations in the world.  The IFPA sets extremely high standards for its schools and has a strong, respected voice in the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).  In addition, the IFPA also ensure that any individual who undertakes training within an IFPA accredited scheme will qualify to an approved standard that exceeds National Training Standards.

Upon completion of the course you will be able to join the IFPA, depending on your prior training and whether it meets the level of clinical science and massage that IFPA require.  This can be discussed in your interview.  As an existing practitioner, you might already be part of a governing body and might therefore not decide to take up full membership with the IFPA. Joining the IFPA is optional once you complete the course.  The Aromatherapy and Essential Oil Science components would in most cases be sufficient for you to be able to add existing cover for Aromatherapy to your insurance.

Additional benefits of IFPA membership:

  • listed on their register
  • annual conference
  • quarterly highly respected journal
  • network of qualified practitioners

The course is classroom based in our School of Natural Health, Covent Garden, which will give you great access to our flagship store. As a Diploma student you will receive 20% discount on all Neal's Yard Remedies products and 40% discount on essential oils and carrier oils in our Covent Garden store for the duration of the course.

This course include s a field trip to Kew Gardens, guided by our botany expert Niki Lawrence from the University of Westminster.
