Elaine taught the Homespa Beauty private courses for many years and part of her strategy was to provide additional support through simple video tutorials which could be accessed after training as often as required.  What she didn't expect was that these would spark a global interest and a digital following of (currently) over 15k subscribers and approaching 4 millions views in a little over 2 years.

She has had direct feedback from individuals, lecturers and colleges all over the globe who use her easy to follow and relaxed style of teaching to enhance their lessons or improve their skills.  As a by-product of her Youtube tutorials, Homespa Beauty Expert has also become an accidental relaxation channel as many find the Scottish accent and soothing tones of a therapist's voice a great way to de-stress and relax.

A perfect example of how one plan for you business can accidentally lead to another route opening up for you!

If you require support which includes you demonstrating the treatment to Elaine then you can contact us describing the treatment and what your issues are.  You will then discuss what you will need to have prepared for your chat (whether you need a model present) and the tools and equipment which may be required.  If you require Elaine to demo a treatment to help you with a specific issue then you will need to specify which treatment, what the queries are and whether Elaine is able to do this for you via the chat (if she is unable to demo then a verbal chat may be all that is required.  This can be the case with treatments that are time sensitive or require 24-48 hour pre-treatment client prep which is not always possible).

During your consultancy you will receive lots of practical advice, insider tips and knowledge that comes with working in various areas of the industry throughout a 13 year career.
