About Us


The Academy is run by Nicola Murphy a highly experienced therapist, tutor and international examiner.  Her passion for the industry has brought her around the world lecturing and examining in UK, Japan, Hong Kong and Dubai.  Nicola specialises as a therapist in the Advanced Beauty Treatments such as Laser, IPL and Advanced Cosmetic procedures.

“I feel the possibilities and opportunities in our industry are endless.  Beauty Therapists need continuous training to perform more advanced treatments.  We strive to train our therapists to the highest possible levels, so once competent can offer outstanding standards of practice to clients and students”

The AAA offers students access to the latest technology in the industry.  The Academy provides internationally accredited training (VTCT) in high tech beauty treatments including IPL, Laser, Microdermabrasion, Physiology of Ageing and Advanced Electrolysis. We also offer higher level Diplomas in Beauty Therapy and Advanced Cosmetic Procedures.

The Academy has also introduced A Diploma in Beauty Therapy for those with no experience in the industry.  This course will give candidates qualifications in Skincare, Eye Treatments, Waxing, Make Up and Nail Treatments.  This course is also internationally recognised and delivered slightly different to other Beauty courses in that they will treat ‘real’ clients throughout their training to ensure they are confident with working in a realistic working environment.  This will enable them to gain employment immediately.
