1. Pregnancy Massage: Learn The Techniques Used To Provide Effective Prenatal Massage

The Pregnancy Massage Course will give you both the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to provide safe, relaxing, and beneficial prenatal massage to expectant mothers.

Not only will students learn the techniques used to provide effective treatment but they will also gain an in-depth understanding of pregnancy massages and how to start a business using these new skills.

Pregnancy massage (or prenatal massage, as it is also known) differs from other kinds of massage; it is important to know the differences and how it is unique. The start of the course outlines this, as well as informing students of the best time during pregnancy to start prenatal massage and how it can help in different ways through the three trimesters of pregnancy, including how it can help not just the mother, but also the baby.

From the Pregnancy Massage Course, students will gain an understanding of the anatomical and emotional changes the mother-to-be will undergo during her pregnancy, which will help in deciding which techniques are best for the individual. Also discussed, are the benefits of pregnancy massage in comparison to medication.

From this base of knowledge, the course moves into the practical aspect of massage. This includes information on the different types of massages that can be performed on a pregnant woman, how to do them, and the advantages of each technique. In addition, other complementary therapies are discussed, such as acupuncture and aromatherapy, and how these can be used alongside massage for the benefit of the client and the additional revenue it will bring to the business.

Armed with theoretical knowledge and practical techniques to provide prenatal massages and additional therapies, the remainder of the Pregnancy Massage Course focusses on providing students with information on how to start a business. You will be given crucial expert advice on how to start and maintain your business, how to set up a therapy room, and points to keep in mind when choosing a clinic, whether you aim to start in your home, join another clinic, or find your own premises.

There is a myriad of ways to market your business, from traditional to modern means. This course gives an overview on a number of the ways that you can increase the exposure of your business and gain more clients. Also discussed are the ways that you can operate, other services and products you can provide, and other ways of gaining exposure that will give you an edge over the competition.

The final module of the Pregnancy Massage Course summarises what has been learned throughout the course. This gives students the opportunity to not only feel a sense of accomplishment for all they have learned but to also ensure they have retained the information and to highlight areas that they may need to go over again. Here students are also given eight steps to follow, to help them on their way to opening their own business in the industry.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Pregnancy Massage Course is primarily aimed at those who wish to open their own pregnancy massage therapy business, as it contains plenty of information on how to get started and maintain a business in this area. Likewise, those who already provide holistic therapies will learn a lot about the specifics of massage for pregnant women and could add this to their services/treatments.

The course will also be very beneficial to the partners of pregnant women, who wish to have a practical way to help their partner to relax and de-stress whilst they carry their child.

2. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD Awareness: Learn About Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Aimed at those with little or no knowledge of the condition, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Certificate Course teaches students about how it occurs, how it is diagnosed, the symptoms, and the various treatment techniques available.

This course is also designed to help you on your way towards working within this area.

Separated into 2 distinct sections, the 1st section of this course provides information about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and what those with the condition can do to lessen its effects on their lives. The 2nd section of the course teaches students about the various treatment methods available and the training pathways you can follow to become a therapist working with those who have PTSD.

There is a lot that is misunderstood about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that this course hopes to clarify. Students will be provided with relevant facts that explain who can get the condition and how, a description of the symptoms affiliated with PTSD, and what to expect from a diagnosis.

Thankfully there is now a wide range of treatments available to sufferers of PTSD, with options including clinical, medical, and complementary treatments. This course guides students through a number of treatments, explaining the differences and benefits of each. In addition, there are also a number of self-help activities, which will also be discussed, that have proven to significantly ease the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Even with the various treatments and self-help practices available to them, it can still be very difficult for someone afflicted by PTSD to engage with the world around them. The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Certificate Course describes practical steps that can be taken by an individual, to become more involved with friends, family, the workplace, and society as a whole.

As mentioned earlier, students will be exposed to the role of a therapist working with those with PTSD. This includes understanding the process of diagnosis and typical treatment plans, as well as understanding what the role involves, the skills needed, and training pathways. Although there are many different specialists working to alleviate the symptoms of PTSD in their patients, this course goes into detail about 3 specific areas: Trauma-Informed Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

In addition to teaching students about the role of therapists and the types of treatments that can be provided, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Course also discusses the routes that can be followed to become an expert in the area of PTSD. This also includes how to go about starting your own practice, discussing both the practical aspects and considerations you would need to make before setting up on your own.

Who would benefit from the course?

This course will provide anyone who wants to understand the condition better and the treatments available, with an incredible source of information. This could be to aid yourself in overcoming the effects of PTSD or to help a friend/family member who has the condition.

The course can also be taken by those who are interested in pursuing a career caring for those with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and would like more information on how the condition is treated and the pathways they can take to obtain a role in this area.

3. Postnatal Depression Awareness: Learn How To Recognize Early Signs of Postnatal Depression

The course introduces the topic of postnatal depression or PND (also known as postpartum depression or PPD) by explaining what it is, how it occurs and how it effects people, along with providing facts and figures.

This course discusses postnatal/postpartum depression in detail, covering all aspects, in order to provide an understanding of how it can be treated or prevented. The course covers how to recognise early signs and symptoms, causes, effects, and prevention, and also includes case studies of those who have overcome the condition.

Focus is placed on the changes that mothers go through during and after childbirth, as well as the changes in mindset and behaviours of both parents once the child is born. You will learn about the factors that can determine the likelihood that an individual may suffer from the illness and to what extent, and how postnatal depression differs from other forms of depression. The benefit of this insight is an improved ability to recognise the condition, for the purposes of prevention or early diagnosis.

Early diagnosis is reliant on recognising the signs and symptoms that are indicative of postnatal depression. This important information is shared in the course, as it outlines the behavioural, emotional and physical changes that a mother suffering from postnatal depression will experience, as well as explaining the effects of these. The course also details the effects that are not as obvious, such as the damaging effects that can occur in the relationship between the couple and with the infant.

Why some people suffer from postnatal depression is an important question to answer when putting preventative measures in place. The Postnatal Depression Awareness Certificate Course sets about answering this by giving detailed explanations of all the possible reasons. This considers social, emotional and psychological factors, along with any history of any type of depression and previous postnatal depression.

Should you, your partner or your client be suffering from the condition, the course guides you through a number of methods and techniques that can help an individual to overcome postnatal depression. How to go about seeking help from external sources, such as professionals, and the kinds of medicine that are available to help treat this illness, are also explained. Pre-emptive measures are explained in the form of a list of Dos and Don’ts, which can be put in place if you are at risk of suffering from the condition or start to become symptomatic.

In addition to the information about postnatal depression itself, the course also provides a number of case studies. These give a clear view of the condition, from people who have lived through it, explaining what they felt at the time and how they overcame it. The aim here is to reassure those with the condition that others have been there before and that steps can be taken to get better.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Postnatal Depression Awareness Certificate Course will be beneficial to those who are at risk of getting or who are already suffering from the condition, and their partner, close family members and friends who wish to support them.

Anyone who is a coach or therapist (or is training to be one) will also gain a lot from this course, especially as it outlines how coaching/therapy can be applied in this context.

4. Hypnobirthing: Learn The Methods And Techniques Of Hypnobirthing

The Hypnobirthing Course is designed to teach expectant mothers, who are interested in effective, holistic pain relief in childbirth, about the methods and techniques used in hypnobirthing, as well proving its validity, through real-world case studies and scientific research.

Likewise, birthing partners and others in the mother’s support network will find this reading invaluable in aiding the process.

Students will learn the basics, explaining hypnotism and the psychological theories that have shaped the techniques used in hypnotherapy. Also provided, is information on the observed and self-reported positive results of those who have used hypnobirthing in their labour, as well as discussing the physiological and psychological factors that lead to these positive results.

We will address methods used, as well as dispelling the myths and misconceptions surrounding hypnobirthing. We will be looking at wider use of hypnosis as a pain management technique in other areas of health care, as well as providing examples and research on the successful application of hypnotherapy in childbirth.

Relating the theory to practical application, the 3rd module of the Hypnobirthing Course discusses real-world case studies of patients who have used hypnobirthing to deliver their children. The module describes the people who have used the techniques, why they chose this method of pain-relief, and their responses to the techniques during childbirth.

Hypnobirthing isn’t restricted to a single technique, but presents different options and techniques, with variations in the way they are performed, to suit the needs of the individual. We will talk about who can practice hypnobirthing. The partner of the mother, parents, family members, and friends can get involved, or the mother can even use self-hypnosis.

We look at the techniques used to perform hypnobirthing, including a general outline of a hypnobirthing script and the way you should proceed in performing hypnobirthing for yourself or your client. Students are taught about the equipment they will need, how to prepare for and move quickly through the hypnosis steps before childbirth, and how to adjust to a patient’s changing moods and stress levels.

If you are keen to set up your own hypnobirthing practice, we give you advice on advertising and promoting your business. Alongside from regular marketing promotions, we talk about how students may wish to include free introductory offers, workshops, and information sessions to provide information to those who may be sceptical, ensuring customers understand the benefits, before committing time and finances.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Hypnobirthing Certificate Course is designed to teach expectant mothers, who are interested in effective, holistic pain-relief in childbirth, about the methods and techniques used in hypnobirthing, as well proving its validity, through real-world case studies and scientific research.

The course materials can also be used to begin a career in hypnobirthing or studied as an additional service for practicing hypnotherapists. In support of this the course includes 2 modules that give advice on how you may set up a practice and advertise your business.

5. Reflexology: Learn How To Treat Clients With Reflexology Techniques

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.

The Reflexology Certificate Course guides students through treating clients with reflexology techniques. This course goes into great depth about the various systems of the body, how they should function when in a healthy state, how each can become disordered, and how to aid recovery through reflexology.

In addition to the course materials, you will also be given access to video tutorials of a Holistic Therapist running through a Reflexology Session, highlighting key techniques and typical session practice. The videos cover:

  • Cleansing the feet
  • Application of cream
  • Ankle rotation
  • Ankle freeing
  • Spinal friction
  • Foot moulding
  • Creeping
  • Finger walking or creeping
  • Hooking out
  • Rotations
  • Kneading
  • Rib cage relaxation
  • Diaphragm relaxation
  • Ending a session

You will learn the practice of reflexology and covers its history, how reflexology is practised today, who it works for and its aims.

Students will learn how various parts of the feet mirror parts of the body, about the zones, guidelines, and anatomy of the feet, along with being exposed to foot maps.

You will discover all the areas that you need to be aware of when you intend to work on clients, covering topics such as: how to prepare for a session, creating a case history, knowing how to assess feet for ailments, and understanding common issues with feet.

Students will learn some common techniques in reflexology in detail, along with providing an understanding of the sensations that will accompany treatment and common side effects that can occur.

The course explains the digestive system, imparting knowledge about essential foodstuffs needed on a daily basis, the general function of the various digestive organs, specifics about the liver, and the process of swallowing. The course explains the various conditions that can arise should the digestive system become disordered, what reflexology can do to aid these types of ailments and how to perform the necessary techniques on the relevant areas of the feet.

The course describes the common disorders that can occur in the respiratory system, what can be done with reflexology to aid symptoms, and which techniques to apply. It also illustrates the process of blood circulation around the body, with particular focus around the heart – describing the locations and functions of the major parts of this organ. Heart conditions are also described, along with how reflexology is used in treating these ailments.

The lymphatic system with the lymph nodes, the thymus, and the spleen, and each of their functions, is explained along with the endocrine system, the glands and the general functions of the hormones secreted by them. Stress-related hormones are explained here, along with what reflexology can do to help this and the endocrine system as a whole.

The course explains the purpose and function of the nervous system, including the parasympathetic and sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system, and of the major parts of the brain. We also cover the structures and functions of the ears, eyes, and sinuses. Again, the disorders that can occur in each of these and how reflexology can aid recovery are discussed in this module.

Students will learn the musculoskeletal system and how reflexology can help in alleviating pain found within this system. The hands can be used a similar way as the feet in aiding symptoms of disorders in various areas of the body. Students will learn about the bones, muscles and joints of the hands, as well as providing a hand map and setting students the task of explaining how they would use the hand, rather the foot, in the treatment of a client, applying what they have learnt so far.

Finally, we will give students some pointers on how to set up a reflexology business. Areas of discussion include; research, setting working hours, equipment you’ll need, record keeping and bookkeeping, insurance, and promoting the business.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

The Reflexology Certificate Course is accessible to everyone; requiring no previous knowledge, students are led from the basics, to understanding how reflexology can be used to aid specific aliments and disorders of the body. This knowledge can be applied to clients in a holistic therapy practice setting, either as a sole service or as an additional treatment to existing services, it can also be used to help friends and family with their ailments.

6. Child Psychology: Pursue A Career In Child Psychology

It is the perfect choice for anyone who suspects they might want to pursue in a career in child psychology but does not yet feel they are in complete possession of the facts of what the field entails.

Child psychology is the study of how a young person develops from birth up to adolescence. How he changes emotionally through that time, how his own identity is formed and how he will eventually learn to be able to speak a language. It examines how a child evolves through the processes of information processing and cognitive development.

Behaviourally it looks at how a child begins to understand social behaviours and integrate accordingly. It investigates how motor skills develop, social skills and how identity is formed.

7. Childcare and Early Learning: Learn The Knowledge & Understanding That You Need To Work In Childcare

This course explains the benefits, importance, and value of Childcare and Early Learning. The socialisation & developmental opportunities that it can provide to children are given focus, as are the difficulties faced by parents using day care.

Caring for someone else’s child is a big responsibility and so comes with many guidelines to follow. The Childcare and Early Learning Certificate Course explains Health & Safety directives, Care Plans, Individual Educational Programmes (IEPs), Medical Needs, Safeguarding responsibilities and other associated issues.

You will learn how children develop physically from birth onwards and how this development affects learning. The course also explains the ways in which health, environment, and genetic factors can affect physical development.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Childcare and Early Learning Certificate Course will aid those considering a career in this area. Upon successful completion of this course, you will have gained an understanding of the roles of those working in Childcare, Education, and Playwork, and acquired the knowledge needed to take the next step on your career path.

The information contained within the course is also beneficial to parents who wish to get a better understanding of how their children are being educated and how they may further aid their development at home.

8. Baby Sign Language: Learn Just What Baby Sign Language Is 

You’ll learn just what baby sign language is and how easily it can be used to establish communication between you and your child well before they start to speak. The history of baby language and the reasons it has come into popular usage are discussed. The course allays common misconceptions about teaching a child baby sign language and even outlines the benefits to both baby and you.

The great thing about this communication tool is that there is no right or wrong time to start, no ‘being behind’ or ‘too late’ (unless they’re already using speech to communicate), and you can start to establish baby signing from as early as 6 months, though they likely won’t sign until they’re closer to 8 or 9 months, or even at toddler age. Whatever you decide, this course shows you how to start implementing baby sign language, giving guidance on the process, and providing essential signs first: milk, eat, drink, more, done, mummy and daddy.

As with any learning process, there can be bumps in the road to mastery. The Baby Sign Language Course outlines some of the common problems that you may face as your baby learns to sign and how to work through them.

Fully-illustrated and broken down into categories, this course provides a vocabulary of some of the most important signs from the baby sign language repertoire. This is provided both as written descriptions with diagrams and as videos that visually illustrate how each sign should be enacted. In both instances, the vocabulary is categorised into the following sections: family, food, animals, play, directives and signs for social situations, and daily baby life signs.

Who would benefit from this course?

Those with babies and toddlers have the most to gain from this course, as it offers an easy to use communication tool between parent and child before the child is able to speak.

If you’re finding yourself frantically trying to understand why your baby is crying or your toddler is having a tantrum and nothing seems to be appeasing them, this will help them to tell you what they need.

The course also provides professional child-carers with an excellent tool to use in your role, that will enrich the lives of your clients and their children, and which will give you an extra edge over your competition.

Learning to sign also provides children with learning disabilities with an easy to learn communication tool that reduces the frustration and anger of not being able to express themselves and helps them to gain a better grasp of what’s being communicated by others.

9. Meditation: Refocus And Reach Your True Potential Through Meditation

How often do you truly relax and feel a state of calmness - free from wandering thoughts and the stresses of everyday life? Even when you do have some time spare, do you use that time proactively to relax? Spending just 20 minutes a day meditating can have a dramatic effect on your physical, psychological and even spiritual health – enabling you to refocus and reach your true potential. With 13 modules and 10 videos, the Meditation Course shows you how.

Studying the course, you’ll explore what meditation is and is not, and how it can still your inner dialogue, help you to get in touch with your emotions and handle negative thoughts and behaviours with positivity and efficiently. You’ll discover all the ways meditating can benefit you. The course covers the physical benefits such as decreasing muscle tension and reducing anxiety, psychological benefits like building self-confidence and increasing productivity, and even the benefits to spiritual development such as increased awareness and a deeper understanding of the self.

With a focus on helping you to monitor, understand and properly process your thoughts and feelings, meditation crosses over into the practice of mindfulness. The Meditation Course explores this relationship and how you can use both to balance your mind and live a life of positivity. The course also explains the body’s energy system, how meditation affects this and how this helps the mind, body, and spirit.

Of course, you will be guided through the practical aspects of how to meditate, what you can do to prepare to meditate, and how to start the practice and develop it depending on your needs and goals. Along with basic forms of meditation that help you get into the mindset and process of meditating, mindful, transcendental, and concentration meditation types are covered extensively.

In addition to opening you up to the benefits, principles, and practices of a variety of meditation types, the Meditation Course also guides you through setting up, marketing and running your own meditation groups.

Who would benefit from this course?

Meditation benefits everyone who practices it, for numerous reasons. The Meditation Certificate Course has been designed in such a way that it can be taken by anyone, no matter whether you have a lapsed meditation practice that you would like to re-establish or if you have never heard of meditation before. It is also a very beneficial course to take alongside other personal development courses, such as Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

In addition to being personally beneficial, the course also gives you the tools you need to become a Meditation Practitioner and set up your own business offering meditation classes to customers.

10. Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People: Help To Make Positive Changes Through Knowledge

This course explains how parents, teachers, and others who care for children can help to make positive changes through knowledge, change in mindset and the implementation of effective strategies and techniques.

The Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People Certificate Course will look at what we mean by ‘challenging behaviour’ and help us to understand the reasons behind difficult behaviours in children and young people. It will help you understand that there is always a reason for any behaviour, whether it seems obvious to us or not. It is their way of communicating with us, often in the absence of having any other way to do so.

We will look at challenging behaviours across all ages and provide ways of dealing with these. We’ll cover how brain development from birth to the teenage years can account for certain behaviours, so we develop an understanding of what is going on in our children’s minds and how we can help them.

1. Pregnancy Massage: Learn The Techniques Used To Provide Effective Prenatal Massage

The Pregnancy Massage Course will give you both the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to provide safe, relaxing, and beneficial prenatal massage to expectant mothers.

Not only will students learn the techniques used to provide effective treatment but they will also gain an in-depth understanding of pregnancy massages and how to start a business using these new skills.

Pregnancy massage (or prenatal massage, as it is also known) differs from other kinds of massage; it is important to know the differences and how it is unique. The start of the course outlines this, as well as informing students of the best time during pregnancy to start prenatal massage and how it can help in different ways through the three trimesters of pregnancy, including how it can help not just the mother, but also the baby.

From the Pregnancy Massage Course, students will gain an understanding of the anatomical and emotional changes the mother-to-be will undergo during her pregnancy, which will help in deciding which techniques are best for the individual. Also discussed, are the benefits of pregnancy massage in comparison to medication.

From this base of knowledge, the course moves into the practical aspect of massage. This includes information on the different types of massages that can be performed on a pregnant woman, how to do them, and the advantages of each technique. In addition, other complementary therapies are discussed, such as acupuncture and aromatherapy, and how these can be used alongside massage for the benefit of the client and the additional revenue it will bring to the business.

Armed with theoretical knowledge and practical techniques to provide prenatal massages and additional therapies, the remainder of the Pregnancy Massage Course focusses on providing students with information on how to start a business. You will be given crucial expert advice on how to start and maintain your business, how to set up a therapy room, and points to keep in mind when choosing a clinic, whether you aim to start in your home, join another clinic, or find your own premises.

There is a myriad of ways to market your business, from traditional to modern means. This course gives an overview on a number of the ways that you can increase the exposure of your business and gain more clients. Also discussed are the ways that you can operate, other services and products you can provide, and other ways of gaining exposure that will give you an edge over the competition.

The final module of the Pregnancy Massage Course summarises what has been learned throughout the course. This gives students the opportunity to not only feel a sense of accomplishment for all they have learned but to also ensure they have retained the information and to highlight areas that they may need to go over again. Here students are also given eight steps to follow, to help them on their way to opening their own business in the industry.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Pregnancy Massage Course is primarily aimed at those who wish to open their own pregnancy massage therapy business, as it contains plenty of information on how to get started and maintain a business in this area. Likewise, those who already provide holistic therapies will learn a lot about the specifics of massage for pregnant women and could add this to their services/treatments.

The course will also be very beneficial to the partners of pregnant women, who wish to have a practical way to help their partner to relax and de-stress whilst they carry their child.

2. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD Awareness: Learn About Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Aimed at those with little or no knowledge of the condition, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Certificate Course teaches students about how it occurs, how it is diagnosed, the symptoms, and the various treatment techniques available.

This course is also designed to help you on your way towards working within this area.

Separated into 2 distinct sections, the 1st section of this course provides information about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and what those with the condition can do to lessen its effects on their lives. The 2nd section of the course teaches students about the various treatment methods available and the training pathways you can follow to become a therapist working with those who have PTSD.

There is a lot that is misunderstood about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that this course hopes to clarify. Students will be provided with relevant facts that explain who can get the condition and how, a description of the symptoms affiliated with PTSD, and what to expect from a diagnosis.

Thankfully there is now a wide range of treatments available to sufferers of PTSD, with options including clinical, medical, and complementary treatments. This course guides students through a number of treatments, explaining the differences and benefits of each. In addition, there are also a number of self-help activities, which will also be discussed, that have proven to significantly ease the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Even with the various treatments and self-help practices available to them, it can still be very difficult for someone afflicted by PTSD to engage with the world around them. The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Certificate Course describes practical steps that can be taken by an individual, to become more involved with friends, family, the workplace, and society as a whole.

As mentioned earlier, students will be exposed to the role of a therapist working with those with PTSD. This includes understanding the process of diagnosis and typical treatment plans, as well as understanding what the role involves, the skills needed, and training pathways. Although there are many different specialists working to alleviate the symptoms of PTSD in their patients, this course goes into detail about 3 specific areas: Trauma-Informed Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

In addition to teaching students about the role of therapists and the types of treatments that can be provided, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Course also discusses the routes that can be followed to become an expert in the area of PTSD. This also includes how to go about starting your own practice, discussing both the practical aspects and considerations you would need to make before setting up on your own.

Who would benefit from the course?

This course will provide anyone who wants to understand the condition better and the treatments available, with an incredible source of information. This could be to aid yourself in overcoming the effects of PTSD or to help a friend/family member who has the condition.

The course can also be taken by those who are interested in pursuing a career caring for those with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and would like more information on how the condition is treated and the pathways they can take to obtain a role in this area.

3. Postnatal Depression Awareness: Learn How To Recognize Early Signs of Postnatal Depression

The course introduces the topic of postnatal depression or PND (also known as postpartum depression or PPD) by explaining what it is, how it occurs and how it effects people, along with providing facts and figures.

This course discusses postnatal/postpartum depression in detail, covering all aspects, in order to provide an understanding of how it can be treated or prevented. The course covers how to recognise early signs and symptoms, causes, effects, and prevention, and also includes case studies of those who have overcome the condition.

Focus is placed on the changes that mothers go through during and after childbirth, as well as the changes in mindset and behaviours of both parents once the child is born. You will learn about the factors that can determine the likelihood that an individual may suffer from the illness and to what extent, and how postnatal depression differs from other forms of depression. The benefit of this insight is an improved ability to recognise the condition, for the purposes of prevention or early diagnosis.

Early diagnosis is reliant on recognising the signs and symptoms that are indicative of postnatal depression. This important information is shared in the course, as it outlines the behavioural, emotional and physical changes that a mother suffering from postnatal depression will experience, as well as explaining the effects of these. The course also details the effects that are not as obvious, such as the damaging effects that can occur in the relationship between the couple and with the infant.

Why some people suffer from postnatal depression is an important question to answer when putting preventative measures in place. The Postnatal Depression Awareness Certificate Course sets about answering this by giving detailed explanations of all the possible reasons. This considers social, emotional and psychological factors, along with any history of any type of depression and previous postnatal depression.

Should you, your partner or your client be suffering from the condition, the course guides you through a number of methods and techniques that can help an individual to overcome postnatal depression. How to go about seeking help from external sources, such as professionals, and the kinds of medicine that are available to help treat this illness, are also explained. Pre-emptive measures are explained in the form of a list of Dos and Don’ts, which can be put in place if you are at risk of suffering from the condition or start to become symptomatic.

In addition to the information about postnatal depression itself, the course also provides a number of case studies. These give a clear view of the condition, from people who have lived through it, explaining what they felt at the time and how they overcame it. The aim here is to reassure those with the condition that others have been there before and that steps can be taken to get better.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Postnatal Depression Awareness Certificate Course will be beneficial to those who are at risk of getting or who are already suffering from the condition, and their partner, close family members and friends who wish to support them.

Anyone who is a coach or therapist (or is training to be one) will also gain a lot from this course, especially as it outlines how coaching/therapy can be applied in this context.

4. Hypnobirthing: Learn The Methods And Techniques Of Hypnobirthing

The Hypnobirthing Course is designed to teach expectant mothers, who are interested in effective, holistic pain relief in childbirth, about the methods and techniques used in hypnobirthing, as well proving its validity, through real-world case studies and scientific research.

Likewise, birthing partners and others in the mother’s support network will find this reading invaluable in aiding the process.

Students will learn the basics, explaining hypnotism and the psychological theories that have shaped the techniques used in hypnotherapy. Also provided, is information on the observed and self-reported positive results of those who have used hypnobirthing in their labour, as well as discussing the physiological and psychological factors that lead to these positive results.

We will address methods used, as well as dispelling the myths and misconceptions surrounding hypnobirthing. We will be looking at wider use of hypnosis as a pain management technique in other areas of health care, as well as providing examples and research on the successful application of hypnotherapy in childbirth.

Relating the theory to practical application, the 3rd module of the Hypnobirthing Course discusses real-world case studies of patients who have used hypnobirthing to deliver their children. The module describes the people who have used the techniques, why they chose this method of pain-relief, and their responses to the techniques during childbirth.

Hypnobirthing isn’t restricted to a single technique, but presents different options and techniques, with variations in the way they are performed, to suit the needs of the individual. We will talk about who can practice hypnobirthing. The partner of the mother, parents, family members, and friends can get involved, or the mother can even use self-hypnosis.

We look at the techniques used to perform hypnobirthing, including a general outline of a hypnobirthing script and the way you should proceed in performing hypnobirthing for yourself or your client. Students are taught about the equipment they will need, how to prepare for and move quickly through the hypnosis steps before childbirth, and how to adjust to a patient’s changing moods and stress levels.

If you are keen to set up your own hypnobirthing practice, we give you advice on advertising and promoting your business. Alongside from regular marketing promotions, we talk about how students may wish to include free introductory offers, workshops, and information sessions to provide information to those who may be sceptical, ensuring customers understand the benefits, before committing time and finances.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Hypnobirthing Certificate Course is designed to teach expectant mothers, who are interested in effective, holistic pain-relief in childbirth, about the methods and techniques used in hypnobirthing, as well proving its validity, through real-world case studies and scientific research. Likewise, birthing partners and others in the mother's support network will find this reading invaluable in aiding the process.

The course materials can also be used to begin a career in hypnobirthing or studied as an additional service for practicing hypnotherapists. In support of this the course includes 2 modules that give advice on how you may set up a practice and advertise your business.

5. Reflexology: Learn How To Treat Clients With Reflexology Techniques

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.

The Reflexology Certificate Course guides students through treating clients with reflexology techniques. This course goes into great depth about the various systems of the body, how they should function when in a healthy state, how each can become disordered, and how to aid recovery through reflexology.

In addition to the course materials, you will also be given access to video tutorials of a Holistic Therapist running through a Reflexology Session, highlighting key techniques and typical session practice. The videos cover:

  • Cleansing the feet
  • Application of cream
  • Ankle rotation
  • Ankle freeing
  • Spinal friction
  • Foot moulding
  • Creeping
  • Finger walking or creeping
  • Hooking out
  • Rotations
  • Kneading
  • Rib cage relaxation
  • Diaphragm relaxation
  • Ending a session

You will learn the practice of reflexology and covers its history, how reflexology is practised today, who it works for and its aims.

Students will learn how various parts of the feet mirror parts of the body, about the zones, guidelines, and anatomy of the feet, along with being exposed to foot maps.

You will discover all the areas that you need to be aware of when you intend to work on clients, covering topics such as: how to prepare for a session, creating a case history, knowing how to assess feet for ailments, and understanding common issues with feet.

Students will learn some common techniques in reflexology in detail, along with providing an understanding of the sensations that will accompany treatment and common side effects that can occur.

The course explains the digestive system, imparting knowledge about essential foodstuffs needed on a daily basis, the general function of the various digestive organs, specifics about the liver, and the process of swallowing. The course explains the various conditions that can arise should the digestive system become disordered, what reflexology can do to aid these types of ailments and how to perform the necessary techniques on the relevant areas of the feet.

The course describes the common disorders that can occur in the respiratory system, what can be done with reflexology to aid symptoms, and which techniques to apply. It also illustrates the process of blood circulation around the body, with particular focus around the heart – describing the locations and functions of the major parts of this organ. Heart conditions are also described, along with how reflexology is used in treating these ailments.

The lymphatic system with the lymph nodes, the thymus, and the spleen, and each of their functions, is explained along with the endocrine system, the glands and the general functions of the hormones secreted by them. Stress-related hormones are explained here, along with what reflexology can do to help this and the endocrine system as a whole.

The course explains the purpose and function of the nervous system, including the parasympathetic and sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system, and of the major parts of the brain. We also cover the structures and functions of the ears, eyes, and sinuses. Again, the disorders that can occur in each of these and how reflexology can aid recovery are discussed in this module.

Students will learn the musculoskeletal system and how reflexology can help in alleviating pain found within this system. The hands can be used a similar way as the feet in aiding symptoms of disorders in various areas of the body. Students will learn about the bones, muscles and joints of the hands, as well as providing a hand map and setting students the task of explaining how they would use the hand, rather the foot, in the treatment of a client, applying what they have learnt so far.

Finally, we will give students some pointers on how to set up a reflexology business. Areas of discussion include; research, setting working hours, equipment you’ll need, record keeping and bookkeeping, insurance, and promoting the business.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

The Reflexology Certificate Course is accessible to everyone; requiring no previous knowledge, students are led from the basics, to understanding how reflexology can be used to aid specific aliments and disorders of the body. This knowledge can be applied to clients in a holistic therapy practice setting, either as a sole service or as an additional treatment to existing services, it can also be used to help friends and family with their ailments.

6. Child Psychology: Pursue A Career In Child Psychology

It is the perfect choice for anyone who suspects they might want to pursue in a career in child psychology but does not yet feel they are in complete possession of the facts of what the field entails.

Child psychology is the study of how a young person develops from birth up to adolescence. How he changes emotionally through that time, how his own identity is formed and how he will eventually learn to be able to speak a language. It examines how a child evolves through the processes of information processing and cognitive development.

Behaviourally it looks at how a child begins to understand social behaviours and integrate accordingly. It investigates how motor skills develop, social skills and how identity is formed.

7. Childcare and Early Learning: Learn The Knowledge & Understanding That You Need To Work In Childcare

This course explains the benefits, importance, and value of Childcare and Early Learning. The socialisation & developmental opportunities that it can provide to children are given focus, as are the difficulties faced by parents using day care.

Caring for someone else’s child is a big responsibility and so comes with many guidelines to follow. The Childcare and Early Learning Certificate Course explains Health & Safety directives, Care Plans, Individual Educational Programmes (IEPs), Medical Needs, Safeguarding responsibilities and other associated issues.

You will learn how children develop physically from birth onwards and how this development affects learning. The course also explains the ways in which health, environment, and genetic factors can affect physical development.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Childcare and Early Learning Certificate Course will aid those considering a career in this area. Upon successful completion of this course, you will have gained an understanding of the roles of those working in Childcare, Education, and Playwork, and acquired the knowledge needed to take the next step on your career path.

The information contained within the course is also beneficial to parents who wish to get a better understanding of how their children are being educated and how they may further aid their development at home.

8. Baby Sign Language: Learn Just What Baby Sign Language Is 

You’ll learn just what baby sign language is and how easily it can be used to establish communication between you and your child well before they start to speak. The history of baby language and the reasons it has come into popular usage are discussed. The course allays common misconceptions about teaching a child baby sign language and even outlines the benefits to both baby and you.

The great thing about this communication tool is that there is no right or wrong time to start, no ‘being behind’ or ‘too late’ (unless they’re already using speech to communicate), and you can start to establish baby signing from as early as 6 months, though they likely won’t sign until they’re closer to 8 or 9 months, or even at toddler age. Whatever you decide, this course shows you how to start implementing baby sign language, giving guidance on the process, and providing essential signs first: milk, eat, drink, more, done, mummy and daddy.

As with any learning process, there can be bumps in the road to mastery. The Baby Sign Language Course outlines some of the common problems that you may face as your baby learns to sign and how to work through them.

Fully-illustrated and broken down into categories, this course provides a vocabulary of some of the most important signs from the baby sign language repertoire. This is provided both as written descriptions with diagrams and as videos that visually illustrate how each sign should be enacted. In both instances, the vocabulary is categorised into the following sections: family, food, animals, play, directives and signs for social situations, and daily baby life signs.

Who would benefit from this course?

Those with babies and toddlers have the most to gain from this course, as it offers an easy to use communication tool between parent and child before the child is able to speak.

If you’re finding yourself frantically trying to understand why your baby is crying or your toddler is having a tantrum and nothing seems to be appeasing them, this will help them to tell you what they need.

The course also provides professional child-carers with an excellent tool to use in your role, that will enrich the lives of your clients and their children, and which will give you an extra edge over your competition.

Learning to sign also provides children with learning disabilities with an easy to learn communication tool that reduces the frustration and anger of not being able to express themselves and helps them to gain a better grasp of what’s being communicated by others.

9. Meditation: Refocus And Reach Your True Potential Through Meditation

How often do you truly relax and feel a state of calmness - free from wandering thoughts and the stresses of everyday life? Even when you do have some time spare, do you use that time proactively to relax? Spending just 20 minutes a day meditating can have a dramatic effect on your physical, psychological and even spiritual health – enabling you to refocus and reach your true potential. With 13 modules and 10 videos, the Meditation Course shows you how.

Studying the course, you’ll explore what meditation is and is not, and how it can still your inner dialogue, help you to get in touch with your emotions and handle negative thoughts and behaviours with positivity and efficiently. You’ll discover all the ways meditating can benefit you. The course covers the physical benefits such as decreasing muscle tension and reducing anxiety, psychological benefits like building self-confidence and increasing productivity, and even the benefits to spiritual development such as increased awareness and a deeper understanding of the self.

With a focus on helping you to monitor, understand and properly process your thoughts and feelings, meditation crosses over into the practice of mindfulness. The Meditation Course explores this relationship and how you can use both to balance your mind and live a life of positivity. The course also explains the body’s energy system, how meditation affects this and how this helps the mind, body, and spirit.

Of course, you will be guided through the practical aspects of how to meditate, what you can do to prepare to meditate, and how to start the practice and develop it depending on your needs and goals. Along with basic forms of meditation that help you get into the mindset and process of meditating, mindful, transcendental, and concentration meditation types are covered extensively.

In addition to opening you up to the benefits, principles, and practices of a variety of meditation types, the Meditation Course also guides you through setting up, marketing and running your own meditation groups.

Who would benefit from this course?

Meditation benefits everyone who practices it, for numerous reasons. The Meditation Certificate Course has been designed in such a way that it can be taken by anyone, no matter whether you have a lapsed meditation practice that you would like to re-establish or if you have never heard of meditation before. It is also a very beneficial course to take alongside other personal development courses, such as Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

In addition to being personally beneficial, the course also gives you the tools you need to become a Meditation Practitioner and set up your own business offering meditation classes to customers.

10. Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People: Help To Make Positive Changes Through Knowledge

This course explains how parents, teachers, and others who care for children can help to make positive changes through knowledge, change in mindset and the implementation of effective strategies and techniques.

The Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People Certificate Course will look at what we mean by ‘challenging behaviour’ and help us to understand the reasons behind difficult behaviours in children and young people. It will help you understand that there is always a reason for any behaviour, whether it seems obvious to us or not. It is their way of communicating with us, often in the absence of having any other way to do so.

We will look at challenging behaviours across all ages and provide ways of dealing with these. We’ll cover how brain development from birth to the teenage years can account for certain behaviours, so we develop an understanding of what is going on in our children’s minds and how we can help them.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People Certificate Course is designed to provide parents, carers, and teachers with a better understanding of child behaviour and the knowledge of how best to deal with it. The results of this will be a vast improvement in the relationships between you and the children in your care, whether in a parental or professional role.
