Training Pathways

Pathways School of Reflexology is run by Angela Sellens Drake FMAR, who has 40 years’ experience in the field of Reflexology.

Pathways has been training reflexologists since 1996 and offers Introductory, Professional and Advanced courses and workshops.

Classes are small and friendly, and students are offered a high level of individual support.

Our programme includes:

Professional Training in Reflexology

Pathways offers the SEG Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology for Wellbeing, a fully accredited professional training regulated to national standards.

The course covers everything needed for graduates to begin professional practice and is the only Level 3 Reflexology qualification fully endorsed by the Association of Reflexologists (AoR).

Within the framework of the qualification, Angela has crafted a unique approach to Reflexology training.

Practical reflexology is at the heart of the course. A full range of specialised, light-touch techniques are taught, providing an excellent starting-point for focused, sensitive and responsive treatments. Advanced techniques are also introduced, drawing on the many and varied approaches to reflexology.

Alongside Reflexology, the course includes modules on Complementary Therapies, Business Studies, Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, and an optional Healthy Eating and Wellbeing Unit.

In addition, Pathways includes Foot-Reading, Listening Skills and 1st Aid training as well as Ergonomic advice, to support students in creating a professional, holistic and successful practice.

Pathways’ course provides over 100 hours of in-person training and also includes online sessions and individual tutorials.

Prospective students are offered an Introductory workshop and treatment to explore their interest in Reflexology before committing to the course.  All prospective students will have an initial discussion with the tutor.

Pathways is an AoR Gateway School and students are offered a direct route to Full AoR membership and to registration with CNHC (the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) on graduation.

Pathways School of Reflexology is proud to have been a Founder Member of AoR’s former Affiliated Schools programme and remains committed to providing training standards over and above qualification requirements.
