Joanna's First Day with Chrysalis

Excited, anxious, apprehensive, enthusiastic but ready for a new chapter of my life to begin. First day nerves were soon eased by our tutor, who whilst being very professional and having plenty of experience, had a down to earth approach, which made us all feel comfortable and welcomed.

During the 'getting to know each other' activities, I was moved and encouraged by how open we all were and the warmth we showed each other. Sharing our stories brought us closer together, there was already a strong sense of trust, complete trust shared by everyone.

I knew I had done the right thing choosing to study with Chrysalis. The class was well planned, with just the right amount of theory to practical work, allowing time for group bonding. Reading from the book lists before hand, held me in good stead, the session reinforced and added to ideas, inspiring further research.

It was great to be a student again, leaving interested and keen to meet up with my fellow students for further practice.
