Listening skills online course

This course covers listening skills, client care & communications


Through this course, you will learn to improve the client’s treatment experience through the application of effective client care, communication & listening skills. Good communication is vital in assessing the client’s expectations for treatment outcomes. It has always been the case that discussion on a wide range of issues occurs when touch therapies are applied. The reason a client is seeking beauty & complementary therapy treatments may be obscure or the stresses and strains that affect them may be difficult to pinpoint. The manner in which you, the therapist, communicate with the client is as important as the treatment itself. You will work within the limitations of professional beauty & complementary therapy practice and know when to advise that further appropriate help is sought.
