Q. What do Tina Turner, Morecambe and Wise and ‘Fawlty Towers’ have in common?

A. They all left us wanting more!

Well, I’m about to emulate their fine example and bring down the curtain on 'The Eileen Gilmour School of Holistics' while we’re still a class act.
Like Basil we never quite managed to glimpse “Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plain..." from our classroom window, but we enjoyed plenty of sunshine and our staff and students were undoubtedly “Simply the Best.”

It's that time...

I make a point of trying something new at least every twenty years so it’s time to move on.


The Past

Twenty years ago I gave up teaching children and threw myself into the exciting world of teaching holistic therapies. There were huge advantages. No more playground duty and lovely students who could wipe their own noses.

After a lengthy stint lecturing in FE Colleges I bit the bullet and opened “The Eileen Gilmour School of Holistics.” I was fortunate to have the unfailing support of my Assistant Principal, Oz Wales, who designed and managed the most amazing website for me. Sadly, it’s time to pull the plug and close it down. I think we might shed a tear or two…

Over the years we have trained many hundreds of students. Many stay in touch with us and many have developed successful careers as therapists.

The future?

The Eileen Gilmour School of Holistics will close when the current cohort of students complete on the 13th September 2014. We cannot therefore accept new enrolments for 2014-15.

However... Steven Crumblehume MsC, BSc(Hons), PGCE, MAR, an ex student and my Head Tutor is launching his own school, 'Sole Therapies', based in Gloucester. He will offer the ABC Level 3 Reflexology Diploma as well as a CPD programme. Steven is an experienced and inspirational teacher and will be working with Karen Monaghan MAR, PRM, CNHC - one of my first students and an outstanding therapist. Together they'll make a crack team.
