What People Say?

I found this course pleasantly challenging. Throughout the course I learnt many new things. I was able to adapt and change my daily practice and share new things I was learning about with my colleagues who also found it helpful. Martina was very supportive and helped to keep me motivated as this was something that I particularly struggled with therefore I am very grateful to her for this! Overall, the course has provided me with more knowledge and theory behind my daily practice. It has also given me confidence and opened new pathways for me to further my career.
