    "I find the course fascinating"

    - Louise Bradshaw-evans, County Tipperary

    I am a fully qualified Beauty and Body therapist CIBTAC AND CIDESCO and also CIBTAC qualified as a Reflexologist (a Member of the Association of Reflexologists) and qualified in Indian Head and Hot Stone Massage, Reiki and Aromatherapy.  I make my own products and run my own salon. 

    I was a Licensed Conveyancer and a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Execs specialisiing in Personal Injury work when I lived in the Uk.  I presently live in Eire. 

    I was advised that I could skip the foundation course and go straight into the level 4 course.  However, I have of course to do a fair bit of research and reading up before I personally feel comfortable dealing with the modules and this is why I have delayed dealing with the work. 

    I think, in hindsight, it might have been adviseable to do the level 3 course first to ease me into the level four.  I find the course fascinating and believe it will be of great help to me in my work with my clients who could benefit from the tools that CBT makes available. 

    The course for level four is easy enough to understand I just need to fill in the back ground first. 

    thank you
