Discover more about Advanced Consultation Training

A.C.T. is a course in ‘advanced consultation’ that has been developed for aesthetic and medical professionals

To help minimise the risks to both patients and our professional practice in this progressive and transitional stage in the beauty and aesthetic industry. The foundation of the A.C.T. approach is to develop our skills, as aesthetic and medical professionals, to advance our communication and the information we provide our patients, so that both parties are in full agreement about the best procedure or treatment to help them realise their aesthetic goals.

The benefits to having advanced consultation skills are many.


Not only can we minimise the risk of treating patients who are potentially psychologically not suitable for cosmetic and aesthetic procedures, but through a more comprehensive and open dialogue at the consultation stage, we will develop stronger bonds and relationships with our patient’s. Where positive word of mouth and a practitioners reputation still outweighs any paid for advertising it is important to ensure that we are delivering the highest quality of engagement with our patient’s throughout the whole treatment process, from consultation through to aftercare, which is of vital importance for ongoing commercial success.

Advanced Consultation Training is an excellent method that allows patients access to a standardised non biased consultation where they are guaranteed high quality information to help in their decision making for their elective procedure. The practitioner can also have peace of mind knowing they have delivered all the appropriate information required to gain genuinely informed patient consent and protect against possible litigation.

I am a full-time doctors appraiser, and the importance of doctors having advanced consultation skills cannot be emphasised enough. A.C.T. courses provide an excellent training in these areas, and I would encourage any clinician to consider enrolling. They have excellent CPD accreditation which is a further advantage for the doctors approaching their appraisals.
