Diplomatherapy – Nail D3 in 2023!

I keep hearing the same things from D3 Theory candidates

  • “I won’t have time to memorise this entire online book before the exam”

  • “I don’t how others stay motivated with the huge amount of theory content – I’m finding it a real struggle to force myself to study it.”

  • “I’m not sure how to apply the content in the theory exams in exactly the way the examiners are expecting”

  • “I don’t want to have to spend the money and time on re-sitting this exam”

  • “This just isn’t how I wanted being a Diploma student to feel like.”

The biggest issue here is that every time you find yourself feeling like this, or repeating one of these comments, there is a knock-on effect that you won’t always be aware of.

Your confidence takes a hit

Your energy and enthusiasm drops

Doubts creep in

“Am I really cut out for this?”

The good news is that, by embarking upon the WSET Diploma in the first place, you’re already operating at a very high level

Cookie-cutter simply doesn’t work.

This is why in the newest upgrades to my signature Diplomatherapy course we have added elements to tackle each student’s individual strengths and weaknesses when it comes to D3 Theory.


Many of the D3 Theory candidates I see out there need support with different elements depending on their unique personality.

Because, whilst studying for D3 Theory, you should feel

Stimulated; intellectually challenged; enjoying your passion for wine

In control


Yet so often, not addressing your personal challenges can leave you feeling


Isolated and on the verge of giving up

Like you’ve completely lost touch with why you signed up in the first place: your passion for wine!

Frequently Asked Questions

Anne, what exactly is included in Diplomatherapy Signature?

You can read full details about Diplomatherapy Signature, as well as testimonials from previous participants, at this link. All the content in Signature is included in all three levels of Diplomatherapy 2023.

Do you offer extra Tasting support as well as Theory options?

There is an entire step-by-step guide to approaching the Tasting side of D3 in Diplomatherapy Signature, so by joining any of the three levels you will benefit from that. You can also get excellent Tasting support by signing up for the D3 Tasting Workshop.

Due to the online nature of the programme and the associated challenges of sending wines to different locations around the world, Anne has decided with the extra support not to include a tasting component.

Additionally, the pass rate is much higher for the Tasting exam than for Theory, which is another reason why the Gold and Platinum levels focus on Theory support.

The bespoke, personalised nature of the Platinum level, however, does lend itself to personalised advice on tasting strategy if required, and Anne will be happy to advise on this for all Platinum participants.

Do you offer refunds?

Since you will gain instant access to the recorded content, and because Anne requires participants to be fully committed to the programme in order to ensure success, all sales are final.

Understandably you want to be sure before investing in yourself, however, so if you have any niggling concerns or queries and would like to talk these through with Anne, you can book a free 15-minute Zoom Clarity Call in her calendar, or email her at

I have more questions. How do I get in touch?

With any investment, understandably you want to be sure you’re making the right decision! Feel free to email Anne at, or if you’d like to speak to her directly, you can book a free 15-minute Clarity Call in her calendar to talk through your queries and concerns.
