I completed my reflexology course last year. To learn at Phoenix training school has been a fantastic experience. I came along with big expectations and I have not been dissapointed. Paula and Denise have been very supportive throughout the whole course. Special thanks to Denise for being such an amazing teacher. I highly recommend this teaching school.


I had just returned from Australia for 6 months. On my return I wanted to start a new career so I signed up to an evening massage course.I fell in love with how Phoenix was ran. The small classes, very knowledgeable teachers and other mature students in the class.I loved it so much I ended up training in most courses I that Phoenix offered. Through the First Steps programme I became a confident therapist, with some experience of working in a salon. Without this support I know I would have felt not ready to start offering treatments at home to clients.I done this for a while and then I ended up becoming a partner in a Beauty and Holistic salon. After a while I then trained to become a teacher.

Level 2 & 3 Beauty Therapy, Nail technician & gel polish course

My Journey in the Beauty industry & at Phoenix first began when I was still at school back in 2009, I did my work placement at the training school which gave me a great insight and interest into wanting to start a career in this industry once I finished school. I went onto do my Level 2 & 3 Beauty Therapy course and I loved every second of it and couldn't wait to learn more, Phoenix was such an amazing school to be taught at from the small intimate class sizes, knowledgeable tutors, nothing was ever too much trouble! I recently decided I wanted to extend my treatment knowledge to include more advance nail treatments e.g nail extensions & gel polish application and I couldn't think of a better place to apply for this course and again loved the learning experience all over again 8 years on. I couldn't recommend Phoenix enough, Louise and her team are fabulous and have always been so supportive. I am now managing a nail bar in London and none of that would have been possible if it wasn't for Phoenix, it is by far the best choice if you are looking to start a career in the Beauty Industry!!

Many different courses!

I started my beauty journey back in 2013 where I started at Phoenix to learn Level 2 Beauty Therapy. After my course finished Louise gave me a fantastic opportunity to work at her salon over the summer to help build my confidence. I then started the Level 3 massage course, which I absolutely adored and this is where my passion for Holistic healing began. The teaching was brilliant, the resources were excellent and it was wonderful getting to know the clients. After qualifying Level 3, I took on a management role in Retail to save up to go travelling, and it was whilst travelling I decided I wanted to go into Beauty full time as my career. When I returned home I got in contact with Louise, who was absolutely fantastic and so supportive. She introduced me to the First Steps programme where I was able to work full time in the First Steps Treatment Studio. It was a wonderful opportunity enabling me to get started in the industry. It was this valuable experience which secured me the job I have now - a full time Beauty and Massage Therapist at a Beauty and Holistic salon. I owe so much to Phoenix and Louise who has been so good to me and has become a friend. I would recommend this school to anyone wishing to start a career in beauty - I'm so pleased I did it, and I can't wait to see what the rest of my career holds.

I am excited for the industry to have such a caring and passionate therapist . You are an absolute credit to us Rosie


Firstly I would like to say congratulations to Denise and here is why...A number of us nominated Denise for a Festival of Learning Award and I received a Certificate of Achievement to present to her in recognition of her commitment and dedication to teaching and learning (it was sent to the first person to nominate her).Denise is a wonderful, inspirational tutor and we feel so privileged to have trained with her. The support and teaching we received from Denise during our training was outstanding. She's one of a kind.

Manicure and Pedicure

I completed my Manicure and Pedicure course in June 2017.The training was very thorough and covered all aspects needed to a very high standard . Louise was an excellent tutor who supported us along the way with questions relating to the course and questions relating to our future bussiness .What I really liked as well was the fact that being a mum was taken into account with regard to course start times and throughout how things were tailored to take this into account .

Now I am looking forward to seeing your business flourish x

Level 3 Body Massge &a Level 2 Beauty Therapy

To learn at Phoenix training school was the best decision I have ever made. I have grown so much as a person and am now a confident therapist. Louise and her team are so encouraging and supportive I have just reached my own dream and have got a job as a massage therapist in a great centre! I can't thank them enough and am continuing my education and journey with them with more courses in September 🙌🏻

Thank you Phoenix ❤️

It has been an absolute pleasure seeing you grow Molly. You have a wonderful future in this industry, an absolute credit to us.

Diploma in Holistic Therapies

I have throughly enjoyed my time training with Pheonix- Sam my tutor was amazing and super supportive even managed to get me to stop belittling myself so much - there have been a few wobbles in personal cirmcumstances along the way that Both Sam and Paula have talked me through and helped me get back on track, they care deeply about you as a person and your progression. I only gave it a four because through no fault of their own there was a few hiccups which they worked very hard and fast to rectify but it did nether the less effect the training but problem was rememdied very quickly and they came back better then ever, the stanard of training is second to none - clients I have and commented on my continued improvement throughout the course which is not only nice for me but a reflection on the teaching techniques.

We are all so proud of you Angela, a fabulous therapist with a huge heart. We are also very grateful for your support through the traumatic time earlier in the year, you are right, we are in much nicer premises now!

Gel polish

Wanted to say a massive thank you to Toni who was my tutor on my one to one Gel Polish course. I haven't been in the industry for 6 years and was unsure of whether to start again after being so long I had lost a lot of confidence. Toni made me feel extremely comfortable and helped me feel confident to start again. Very highly recommend joining on off their extensive range of courses.

Six years!! golly where has the time gone? That is what is so great about our industry - its a career for a lifetime. Looking forward to seeing and helping you grow your little business.
