The Jennifer Young Training School
Jennifer was invited into the world of cancer support when some of the ladies at her local NHS hospital asked her to work with them and create specialist skincare and cosmetics for those going through treatment.
When Jennifer first entered the chemo ward, she, like many others, had no idea that cancer treatment can result in skin and nail related side-effects. When she discovered these extra burdens, Jennifer was determined to help.
Jennifer Young & Beauty Despite Cancer is the recognised expert in specialist skincare for those living with and beyond cancer and oncology touch therapies.
Jennifer Young has a BSc (Hons) in Biology and is an experienced microbiologist, is a nutritional therapist, an associate member of the Royal Society of Medicine, a qualified aromatherapist, beauty therapist and product formulator.

The Jennifer Young Training School specialises in oncology therapies, skincare and well-being for cancer patients.
It is our mission to help cancer patients to recognise themselves and to help our therapist, salon and spa partners to provide the best possible service to those affected by cancer.
All of those affected by cancer should be welcomed to spas. The industry is changing and more and more professionals are gaining the qualifications needed to work anyone who has received a cancer diagnosis.
In order to work safely and appropriately with cancer patients, already qualified therapists need specialist training. With the right qualification, therapists can do great good.
All of the evidence points to improved wellness, physically and emotionally, when someone living with or beyond cancer receives a specialist beauty or holistic therapy.
The Jennifer Young qualifications are accredited by internationally recognised professional bodies. The team deliver CPD courses for a many organisations as well as training healthcare professionals.
