Counselling & Hypnotherapy Courses



"Being a mature student I was rather apprehensive at the beginning of the course, my course tutor soon put me at ease and was so encouraging which gave me more confidence. After handing in my first assignment I now feel that I have the ability to do well as the subject is so interesting and very worthwhile, I see a good future ahead." DIANE STARMER
