Testimonials

"I thought there was a good balance between teaching, experiential work, role play and discussion and the different characters of the course facilitators complemented the overall process very well."

"The structure was excellent, boundaried, clear and always seemed to get consolidated and with a constant view on integration. Excellent, I'd recommend this to anyone."

"The course fully met my expectations. I learn best from a mixture of theory, practice and experiential, which I felt the course gave in a balanced way."
