Helen McGuinness Testimonials

Here’s what people think after they’ve completed training with us …

” I looked long and hard for a training course that was affordable and flexible. I could find flexible, but they were expensive. I could find affordable, but they were inflexible. I work full time currently and find it difficult to get time off. I was recommended to look at the courses run by Helen McGuinness. When I googled Helen McGuinness so many results popped up! As I was told, she had written many books on various subjects in the massage world. She was on YouTube Facebook and well respected by all who had left reviews or testimonies.

Helen is extremely approachable, easy to talk to, supportive and really cares about her students. I felt confident enough to practice on friends and family after my initial training and have gone from strength to strength since passing my exam, with the most amazing feedback from my clients. “

Tracy Marshall – Hastings Holistics

” I can thoroughly recommend Helen McGuinness Health and Beauty Training. I attended the Level 3 Beauty Advanced Facial Electricals training on a one to one basis. The course was very informative and comprehensive and models were arranged strategically across the 2 days to maximise classroom experience on all areas of the course.

Education was delivered at the right pace and supporting class notes were comprehensive whilst Helen’s guidance reinforced my confidence in the new techniques. I will definitely be using again for myself and my team. Thank you Helen for your excellent training and friendly approach. “

Lisa Young – Studio 8 Beauty

” I have done several courses now with Helen on a one to one basis. In comparison with other beauty and holistic courses which I have done at other establishments, she, in my opinion is the best. On a one to one, you get Helen’s undivided attention. She is warm and friendly and the courses are enjoyable and interesting.  I travel for 3 hours each way from North Devon to do Helen’s courses, so that speaks for itself.

I have no hesitation in recommending Helen at any time for any of the beauty and holistic courses which she offers. “

Lyn Barefoot, Barefoot Nails and Beauty

” I fully enjoyed the courses I have undertaken with Helen, nice to be taught by such a natural teacher. 

The course I have been on are waxing, make up and gel polish. I look forward to attending eyebrow and lash tinting in December. The best thing about studying with Helen is knowing that the support is there at the end of the phone if needed after the course is finished.

I tell my friends about the courses available! Who share my interest in beauty. “

Big thanks Helen

” I have been in the beauty industry for 10 years and now run a busy salon in Southampton. I wanted to refresh on a couple of treatments to make sure I was up to date with my skills as the industry is always changing and doing this on a 1 to 1 basis with a model was perfect for me.

I could fit it on a day to suit my working hours and it gave me a chance to ask as many questions as I wanted. This allowed us to adapt her courses personally to me and have had further help and advice through emails since. Helen is patient and a fantastic trainer with so much knowledge it has been an honour to be able to train with her- thank you! “

Emily Babey

” I attended the three day body massage course, run by Helen McGuinness. The course was both enjoyable, with a good group experience, and informative, making use of both visual and practical learning styles.

During the course my tutor, Helen, was incredibly supportive and knowledgeable, making the experience enjoyable and enlightening. I feel I have learnt a great deal and wish to enrol on further courses. “

Vicki Smith

” I found the massage course I attended exceeded my expectations on all levels. Helen was extremely professional and friendly at all times. Information was delivered clearly and concisely.

She has a very calm and patient nature, which makes learning from her an enjoyable experience. She seemed to know how adapt herself to you as the learner to make sure you got the most from the course, and have constructive feedback. I would thoroughly recommend the Helen McGuinness training school. “

Andrew Hales

” I have been on a few courses with Helen and every time I’m so impressed with the knowledge transferred and high levels of professionalism. It’s a brilliant learning environment as the classes are small, lots of practical work available on models. Helen is very patient, friendly and calming. I can’t wait to do another one. “

Sarah Keenan

” I trained in beauty level 2 with Helen and found her approach to be professional yet very supportive. I was completely new to this field and with Helen’s support throughout I now feel confident in carrying out these treatments.

During my intensive training Helen had organised many clients for me and the planning of the training and clients all fitted seamlessly together. I would like to thank Helen for her support and encouragement and for being at the end of my emails. “

Wendy Hales

“I have done my training with Helen over a number of years. The classes are enjoyable with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

I found the eyelash lift course very informative and I felt confident in doing the treatment but also knowing if I needed any advice or questions answered that Helen was easy to reach via email with a prompt response.

I look forward to continuing my training with Helen. “

Nina Step

” I completed the VTCT certificate in body massage with Helen.  I thoroughly enjoyed the course, and found Helen to be very, patient, clear and supportive.  I was quite nervous, but Helen gave me reassurance and supported me with the course. The DVD is also a really useful learning aid.

I traveled all the way from Swansea, but I am glad I did!  I can’t recommend Helen highly enough! I really enjoyed training in body massage with Helen, and I will be booking on more courses with her in the very near future. “

I would really recommend Helen McGuinness for anyone wanting to take the advance massage course or any other course. I cannot wait to go back. “

” I trained with Helen for my NVQ level 2 and found the course very interesting to the end. Helen was always happy to help me if I was struggling with something until I felt confident.

The classes were small and we learnt at a pace that wasn’t too overwhelming with information. I met some lovely people throughout the course & look forward to coming back for more training. “

Francesca Parker

” My first introduction to Helen’s expertise was through her books when I was training in holistic therapies many years ago. I then discovered her really useful training DVDs which took me to her website where she offers the option of one-to-one training.

This was perfect for me as a busy, mature student needing to gain a couple of extra qualifications in facials, skincare, and facial electrical treatments.

I have really enjoyed my time training with Helen – she explains everything really clearly, provides all the equipment ready set up to learn your practical, as well as some lovely clients to practice on. It’s a fun, supportive environment and I came away confident and inspired to make full use of my new skills. “

Thank you for all your help, Helen – Janet @edermskincare.co.uk

” I have attended a number of short courses with Helen and my most recent was facials. The course was professional and enjoyable at the same time. The environment is warm and friendly.

Helen makes it easy to understand and master the techniques. She structures her classes well and gives advice on products, prices and tips to help you in your professional career.

It’s been a pleasure being taught by Helen. I look forward to booking my next course. “

Many thanks Amarjeet Mann

” I chose 1 to 1 training with Helen and found it to be outstanding. Helen has expert knowledge and is professional yet friendly and approachable. The course was practical, informative and enjoyable.

Helen told me not to hesitate in contacting her if I had any problems afterwards, and true to her word, gave me valuable advice on an issue I had.

I will definitely return for more training and can’t recommend Helen McGuinness Health & Beauty Training International highly enough. “
