Learning a new skill or launching a new career can be a bit daunting but I am here to support you throughout this new chapter. Maybe you have not studied for a while or you are worried about studying online. There is no need to worry. I have everything covered.
Fifteen years of teaching students in person and online around the world means that I know exactly what you need to feel confident when studying to become a teacher. I have also taken extensively training in many subjects such as life coaching, hypnotherapy, doulaship, sleep consultancy and pre/post natal yoga. Blossom & Berry courses draw from all of my trainings and experiences over the years.
I want you to love learning with us. Nothing is compromised in our training. Blossom & Berry is not just about getting a qualification; it’s about being inspired, inspiring others, having a full understanding of the needs of parents, babies and children and about making a difference.
Blossom & Berry is different. I believe in investing in people for the future, creating opportunities for happiness and in nurturing yourself and others. My courses are not just about certificates, rather about experiences, memories & relationships. When you become a student with us, you are a student for life. You have lifetime access to our resources whenever you need them. Our teachers support each other in our community and our ethos is to nurture, share and learn together.
You can study with us however you want to fit around your lifestyle. All the training materials and requirements are the same whether your study online or in person and all students complete the same work to qualify. However you study, you are connected to me via email, calls and online so I can help you grow. I mark all your work and respond to your emails personally. I listen to you and can create new resources to make sure you have all you need.
All Blossom & Berry trained teachers work independently to each other but all support each other as part of a Nurture Collective. We are not a franchise by choice because I believe that success in teaching comes from a combination of my high quality training plus all the special things about you! Your rewards and successes are your own. I am here to give you the firm foundations and roots to grow. Our success and reputation comes from supporting you to blossom and grow.
The investment in our training is small and low risk. You can create your own business and join our community. Most students will regain this investment within the first two months of starting their practice.
You get lifetime access to our course materials, videos and resources. You can study online, in a small group or in a one to one session. All the materials are available to you on enrolment. You can connect with myself and other students in our private online facebook group for help and support and to share.

We believe in self development alongside training so we have input from coaches, teachers and other experts to help you grow personally as well as growing your business.
1.Unicef estimates there are 353,000 babies are born each day around the world. That’s alot of babies needing nurturing touch and love and alot of parents and babies to teach. 128,845,000 a year!
2. A recent study by the National Childbirth Trust suggests half of new mothers suffer mental health problems during pregnancy or within the first year of their child’s birth. Education through Blossom & Berry courses during pregnancy on self care, the importance of bonding and practising skin to skin has the potential to support new mothers.
3. The number of children having therapy for anxiety has risen by 60 per cent in two years figures in 2017 from the NSPCC show. Babies and children need loving support to thrive and how they interact with their primary caregivers in the first 3 years of life can, simply put, wire their brains for love or stress. Problems with emotional regulation in early childhood can cause stress and anxiety later in life. Infant massage and yoga teaches responsive care and love from the beginning.
4. Blossom & Berry are regularly contacted for teacher recommendations by parents from all over the world. We need more teachers to help support parents and babies.
5. There are waiting lists for baby massage and yoga in many areas and parents and babies are missing out on this vital education due to the lack of availablity of classes.
Have a look at my video on Channel Mum talking about my journey to become a baby massage teacher. I am very proud to be Channel Mum’s baby massage expert. So many of my teachers share a similar outlook on life, motherhood and parenting. Running your own family friendly flexible business enables you to be with who you love and doing what you love. Time and experience is so precious. If you are not living a life you love now, it’s time to change that and start now!
Many people feel they are lacking passion in their careers and want to be part of something creating a bigger impact in the world. We are doing just that! Have a look at our Nurture Manifesto to support babies, parents and the community. It shapes all we do in our training, courses and campaigns. Massage and yoga is not just about touch; its about promoting the importance of bonding, of communicating love and creating a sense of belonging. Through the creation of strong bonds and attachments between parents and babies, we can help lay the foundations for healthy, secure emotional relationships and create the opportunity for positive connections all over the world. We can empower individuals to enjoy the experience of parenting and create positive experiences for their children.
I work with some of the world’s most vulnerable parents to make a difference to the lives of children. I have set up my own charitable project in Malawi supporting women and babies in poverty with infant massage and safe motherhood education. I donate 10% of baby massage enrolments to support this project so your study creates education for others. There are also opportunities to volunteer on the project in Malawi. We also have many voluntary projects in the UK and my teachers undertake all kinds of charitable work and projects to help others. We all support each other. You can be part of this vision.
