Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to bring to the course?
- A pen and paper
- Three towels
- Your own PPE (see “What should I wear” below)
- Water bottle
- A mug/cup for a cuppa
- Lunch and snacks
Although there are shops/cafes near most venues, it is advisable to bring a packed lunch and snacks as we only have 30 minutes for lunch break.
If you are having 1-1 training, you may wish to bring along someone to practice massage on for the afternoon, otherwise we will work together. It all depends on how you wish to work.
What should I wear?
Whatever you feel comfortable in, but probably not your best silks, as we may be practicing with oil. I encourage casual wear rather than uniforms as some people living with dementia associate uniform with authority and power, and I wish to take away barriers to create equality of regard.
We will also be wearing PPE in line with covid:
- A mask unless you are exempt
- Goggles or equivalent
- An apron & gloves if you feel more comfortable working this way – although these items are not compulsory
You will be expected to provide all your own PPE

Sometimes things go wrong and you may be unable to attend a course. If notification of cancellation is more than four weeks of the course date LMCT (LMC Training) will offer you a place on the next available course or refund you the full amount of the course minus a £50 administration fee.

Can I attend a course a second time?
Yes, some attendees like to go away and consolidate their knowledge before returning to further boost their confidence once they have more working practice. Others like to return for a refresher course and fulfill their CPD obligations.
If you attend the course a second time, you pay half the usual fee (this applies to group training only; this does not apply to privately organised training, and excepts half price 1-1 or 2-1 training). I am always tweaking & updating course content to keep it fresh. Repeat attenders feel they learn something new each time.
