What our Students Say

This was by far the best workshop I have attended. I loved the practical side and reading out to fellow class mates. I will use the skill i have learnt for my own personal development and for future clients

What our Students Say

"Blend of theory and experiential is very good, Role plays facilitated much learning, very supportive learning space; I was pleased to see exploration of broad scope of Lifespan Developmental theory with emphasis too on modern neuroscientific research. Facilitation of the group emotional process around these theoretical concepts was also very thorough"
