CPD – Aromatherapy for Stress, Anxiety & Depression

aromatherapy for stress, anxiety & depression training course on line

EPresented by Emma Charlton MIFPA ITHMA.dip PGCE

A six hour online aromatherapy CPD course split over two weeks with Emma Charlton, to develop your understanding of and support clients who experience stress, anxiety and depression.

Today, mental health is frequently discussed in the media, workplaces and within aromatherapy. Although positive, this has inevitably caused some misconceptions and misunderstanding.

Aromatherapy clients frequently present with high stress, anxiety and depression. As Aromatherapists, it is important to develop our understanding about these common mental health challenges, to give us the confidence to treat clients who are struggling and the understanding needed to offer informed support.

The course will help you confidently choose essential oils to support your clients who live with these common mental health challenges.

We will consider triggers, common signs, symptoms and aromatherapy treatment approaches.

Students will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of learning activities.

Students will be encouraged to work in small groups, pairs and as a whole group. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and feedback.

Handouts are provided to back up all course material.

Each session will be recorded and will be available to attendees once the course is completed.

PLEASE NOTE, students will not be asked or expected to disclose any personal mental health experiences.
