About Me

My name is Kathleen Pitt MAR RN Cert Ed. I am the Principal of The Academy School of Reflexology and Holistic Therapies Northampton, and also the main tutor. The other tutor on the courses is Jenny Irving.

I became interested in holistic therapies when I attended a one day workshop. An accident stopped me practising the therapies so I decided to teach them. I took a teaching diploma and approached the Association of Reflexologists as to what would be best so that the students would have an excellent qualification at the end of the course.

After meeting all the requirements from AoR and ITEC for accreditation, I then set up my School of Reflexology Training in Northampton. Since starting I have trained over 300 students with a 99% pass rate in reflexology and 100% pass rate in Massage.

I am a:

  • Qualified Registered Nurse of 36 years (retired)
  • Qualified Reflexologist for 26 years
  • Qualified teacher of 21 years
  • Qualified First Aider being a member of St John Ambulance for 33 years (retired)
  • And holds a D32/33 training and assessors award
  • Qualified in Holistic Massage 20 years ago
  • Gained a Certificate of Education in 1995
