“I have learnt so much about myself and about how to really listen to people in an atmosphere that is both relaxed and fun. My tutor encouraged me to think for myself, and was there for me if I needed help or support of any kind. taking the counselling course has opened up a whole new world for me, it’s expanded my mind making me want to learn and strive to be the best that I can be. I would reccomend everyone to take this course as before I was a housewife, now I am a student looking toward an exciting and bright future as a fully trained counsellor”
