Hands on Training was established in the UK in 1999 by Caroline Bray. Her vision was to build a team of highly trained, experienced therapists and tutors in a wide range of complementary therapies. The marker for all courses was to keep standards high and never lose sight of the important role that complementary therapies play in modern life. Caroline firmly believed that in order for complementary therapies to gain respect from the public, therapists should be trained to a high standard and demonstrate confidence in their abilities. In 2004 Caroline moved to France where she runs courses and has a busy practice. Lesley Hart took over as Principal of Hands on Training in the UK and continues to keep training standards high.
