The S.E.E.D. Institute

The S.E.E.D. Institute

Description

Established for over 30 years, The S.E.E.D. Institute (Self-Exploration, Education, Development) was originally founded as an Aromatherapy and Complementary Medicine School in 1986.

We have expanded and evolved during this time and in addition to our accredited Clinical Aromatherapy Diploma we offer a Core Massage Training qualification, Post-graduate Ayurvedic Training, Taster Courses and over 50 Post-graduate/CPD Courses/Qualifications.

TSI comprises a team of fully qualified, accredited and experienced tutors dedicated to providing traditional holistic training to students who wish to work with their clients wholesomely.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our reputation for delivering the highest standards of training and qualifications has gradually built since our inception in 1986. We uphold this position by maintaining the solid foundation of holism that has always permeated TSI - our internal structure, our teaching methods and our courses.
We intentionally limit places on our courses to afford students individual support during their studies - putting the student's well-being at the centre of their learning experience.

Why is this our approach? Because we know that for students to become proficient at working with their clients holistically they need to further their own Self Exploration, Education & Development (S.E.E.D.). and for this individual tutor support is fundamental to success.

T.S.I.'s Massage, Aromatherapy, Ayurveda and Specialised Massage/Training courses assist practitioners to be holistic in their outlook, perception and practice - thereby gaining enhanced insights into what impedes their Clients' enjoying balanced health - free from disease.

Core Qualification Courses
We offer a 7 day Core Massage Qualification , an internationally recognised Clinical Aromatherapy Diploma that is accredited by the I.F.P.A., and a First Aid Course that is accredited by the FHT.

Post-graduate/CPD Courses
In addition to our Core Qualification Training we offer a series of CPD/Post-graduate/Taster courses - One-day courses are available from only £100.
