"I attended the above course last week and thought it was superb. For a start, it reminded me that I'm actually doing pretty well in many areas (which was very affirming in its own right) but it also gave me a several areas where I could work on - and some very practical tips for doing so."

"I liked how Gaynor was flexible with the course content and canvassed the group for what was working and what they would like added."

"I think that today gave a great balance of practical tips and theory or academic background to why the tips can work. You can take away ideas and strategies to take back to the workplace. I can see how this workshop would fit into our organisation with huge benefit."
