About Us



Indigo was created by our Principal, Karen Ferguson in order to offer an excellent standard of training and continuing support to our students. Her vision to create a training school that offers the combined knowledge and passion of all it’s staff and trainers is a growing presence in the field of complementary therapies.

Karen, along with Deputy Principal, Hilary Austin and the whole team of experienced therapists and trainers work hard to promote the growth of complementary therapies safely, ethically and professionally.

Between them Karen and Hilary have more than 25 years’ experience as both therapists and trainers.
