Student Testimonials

Fun and Interesting Lessons
The lecturer is a very clear and concise lecturer who gives her notes in a very easy to understand manner. It makes learning so much easier when you understanding what you read from the notes. Lessons with her are always conducted in fun and laughter and thus making lessons interesting. When the mind is happy, more learning takes place. Thank you for being an interactive lecturer.

Journey of Self-Discovery and Breakthrough in Mindset
I believe the breakthrough in my mindset comes when I begin to shift from the result-focus in counselling to include a much broader and deeper understanding of helping another troubled human being to overcome their past trauma. Having you as my lecturer has opened a wider scope of understanding to me and I just want to say to you a hearty Thank You.

Improved Understanding of My Children
The exposure study on the subjects brings me to a different world. This course has brought me near to my children. And to assist my children to achieve their goals.
