about Elemi Holistic Training


Our priority at Elemi is to offer you training of the highest quality. How can we be certain of this? It's simple - our tutors have over fifteen years industry and teaching experience. Working for many years in Further Education, teaching and assessing NVQs in all aspects of beauty and holistic therapies.

This wealth of experience has given us a clear understanding of our students needs and the ability to adapt our teaching styles to suit. You will be given continued support and guidance during and after your training. Something our students find invaluable once qualified. We offer comprehensive Diploma, Postgraduate and refresher courses. Whichever course you choose there will be no more than six students present.Giving you plenty of time with your tutor.

Students work on each other, an important part of learning a new treatment is not just about practising it but experiencing it from a client's point of view.

Case studies make up an important part of your learning . From our years of experience students that complete case studies and reflect on these studies become more confident therapists and embrace working with clients once qualified. Remember we offer support and guidance while completing your case studies.

Our retreat days have grown from our teaching. So many students and clients asked us for guidance with personal development. We felt there was a real need for non religious , non judgemental personal development courses. So with skills in counselling and meditation we put together our retreat days. A day totally devoted to ME time. Escape the hustle and bustle and spend the day with like minded people looking to bring some harmony and balance back into their lives.


Why the name elemi?

Well, elemi is an essential oil that has been used for many years to help bring harmony and balance to the mind, body and spirit. A truly holistic oil.

Here at elemi we feel it is important that a holistic approach is taken whether you are here to learn or just need a little ME time.


Our Tutors


Mandy Zeqiri
has worked in the Beauty/Complimentary Therapies Industry for 25 years. She qualified as a beauty therapist in 1987 after gaining City and Guilds and CIBTAC qualifications at Bexley College, Kent.

Over the next 10 years Mandy worked in various salons and clinics in London, gaining a wealth of industry knowledge and experience. By 1995 she naturally progressed into complimentary therapies. She studied Aromatherapy and realised that a holistic approach to treatments was definitely the way forward.

In 1997 she decided that she wanted to take this knowledge and share it with others, so decided to embark on a career in teaching and in 1998 gained her Further and Adult Education Teachers Certificate.

She had found her vocation in teaching and has taught and assessed NVQs in Level 2&3 Beauty Therapy and Aromatherapy ever since.

Elemi training grew from the demand from students wanting quality post graduate/CPD courses.

Mandy's love for learning means she has added qualifications in hot/cold stone therapy, MLD massage, natural face lift massage and pregnancy massage to her CV. She is a qualified meditation teacher and has a loyal client base.
