Course tutor: Elie Pettitt has been in the industry since 2005, with an established client base, with many clients have been with her since then. Her personal skills, aside from the treatment itself, lie in understanding and interpreting the profound connection between the mind and body, physical and emotional balance of her clients and being able to offer the appropriate treatment and support as required at the time of treatment. Indeed she never delivers the same treatment twice, as everyday life is different and thus affects mood, emotion, physical strengths, and overall inner balance, that changes each and every day.

Elie set up The Holistic Academy in 2017, with five years of teaching experience behind her. Therapists train in small, intimate groups so each student receives quality, individual attention and support to ensure they feel confident in their training and professional practice. Their specially tailored courses have been designed to cater for all therapists from those wishing to enter the field of holistic therapy to fully qualified therapists who wish to increase their repertoire for their clients or gain more in-depth expertise in their chosen field.
