Because we work from multiple locations we can not hang certificates on the wall! Also we feel that certificates these days are so easy to photoshop that this is not the best way to verify professionals.
We therefore recommend that you use the links below to check for yourself and satisfy yourself that we are registered and qualified.
Verification via professional bodies
Some professional bodies have an online listing. Professional bodies check all qualifications to ensure the member is qualified on entry. They also check status and insurance on a yearly basis.
