Studying with Kelly and Donna has been one of the most profoundly transformative and insightful experiences of my life. It has forever changed me as a person and I view the world through new eyes now. The course was challenging and involved much soul searching, but I feel I am now reaping the rewards and look forward to continuing my studies. Thank you so very, very much for your enduring support, fantastic teaching and boundless patience! Level 2 Student

"Kelly was a very supportive tutor and really cared about all of her students. She was always on hand to help with any queries and would encourage you even if you felt you couldn't do something. She would give you honest feedback, which I found great as she had belief in me when I didn't. I would highly recommend Kelly as a tutor. Such a shame she doesn't teach the next level. She is a great tutor and a genuine person."

This is a brilliant course, I have learned so much and grown as an individual in way I couldn't have foreseen, and it was so enriching to go on that journey with a solid group of other people who have all grown and changed throughout the course and form a deep connection. Level 2 Student

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and now feel I have a much better understanding of the topic"

Introduction to Counselling Student

"Kelly supported my learning in a approachable and down to earth manner. She imparted her own knowledge and personal experience of the counselling relationship whilst communicating the underlying theories and good practice. Appropriate guidance and constructive feedback from her helped me to evaluate areas to build upon. I'm applying some of what I've learnt already in my workplace and other areas of life having gained confidence in how I apply listening skills to support both day to day interactions and some  challenging situations. Though at times it can seem daunting setting out on the first steps of counselling skills training, Kelly appeared to give time to each and every member of the learning group and made the sessions relevant and interesting...and we all passed!"
