As the world becomes a more stressful place, there is a growing need for homes and work spaces that offer a personal retreat - somewhere to relax, regenerate and replenish ourselves, so we can lead more balanced and fulfilled lives personally and as a community. Our courses are specially designed for home study by Suzy Chiazzari and tutored by her, so she can offer you sensitive support and comprehensive personal advice during your studies. All the courses have plenty of practical content so you become confident to work in your field of study once you graduate. A list of the Home Study courses we offer is in the left hand menu.
