The West Coast Institute of Aromatherapy was incorporated in April 1999 and over 1,000 students have successfully worked through our programs under the ongoing expert guidance of Beverley Hawkins, a true professional with many years of hands on experience. Beverley also maintains a successful hands on practice in Tsawwassen, BC. It is the depth of this clinical experience, together with a constant drive to learn more and more, that makes Beverley an incredible mentor and guide to those taking the courses offered through the West Coast Institute of Aromatherapy.
Essential oils can be used in many different ways and for many different purposes from the esoteric through to the medical and everything in between. Our courses are aimed at providing a good solid grounding in the use of essential oils within this broad framework, allowing our graduates to use them with confidence and understanding. Aromatherapy Associations do not offer training courses, however they all have standards and requirements that must be met by those wishing to join. Some Associations will also recognize individuals or schools as teaching to their standards. Our courses are recognized by all of the associations listed. They not only meet the requirements of each individual association but in fact, exceed the requirements of all of them.
