Holistic Beauty Therapist

About the Level 4 Holistic Beauty Therapist Certificate

Holistic means care for the whole person: spirit and mind. As we come to understand more about the human nature, we recognise the need to offer integrative wellness solutions by fine-tuning mind, body and spirit, rather than individual parts. The holistic beauty therapy course provides you with an understanding in human anatomy, nutrition, massage, aromatherapy, counselling and beauty treatments (skin care, hand and feet care, hair treatment, face structure). It also gives you the practical insight into self-employment, with modules on client contact, health and safety and setting up a practice.

The recommended time to complete the coursework is 310 hours. You can choose to finish it in this time range, or not depending on your availability. There are no time constrictions with learndirect. You simply need to enjoy the subject and have the motivation to complete it. The “when” is up to you.

Who should study this course?

The home learning beauty course is suitable to anyone looking to take their beauty therapy knowledge a step further, anyone with a passion for a holistic lifestyle, or a beauty therapist looking for a business venture owning their own salon.

There is no need for previous qualifications or work experience to embark straight away on this course. This course is designed to take through the basics of beauty therapy, with subsequent notions in physical and mental wellbeing that can suit a complete novice to an experienced beauty practitioner.

What happens after the course?

The beauty therapy industry is competitive. You will need to distinguish yourself from other therapists, be it in the workplace or in the industry. This course offers a competitive edge, with extra notions in nutrition, weight management and fitness. You can complement your studies with a business management course, if you are looking to open your own salon. If you would like to progress in your beauty career you could take specialise in niche area such as mindfulness and beauty, or the effects of the immune system on the physical appearance.

From working as a therapist in spas, luxury resorts and cruise ships you have a wide choice of location with this kind of career. You could also become a beauty blogger, a writer for a lifestyle magazine, take up a sales role for a beauty manufacturer, or be a clinical aesthetician, run your own salon, teach beauty secrets to others, or open your own clinic. Some of the options you could consider:

  • Beauty therapist
  • Beauty and lifestyle writer
  • Business owner
