  • What our Students Say

    "The course has enhanced my life and I believe will enhance my future practice."

    "I cannot praise this course enough. It is so thorough and well-informed and the tutors are clearly passionate about their work. If only more courses were offered on Zoom, I would be signing up to one every year; childcare and travel make it difficult to go to London for courses."

    "I’ve been very impressed and inspired by the teaching sessions, which are a really good balance between theory and ‘real life’ examples/case studies, which help to bring the theory to life."

    "Very good experience contributing to my practice and the way I work with psychosexual issues"

    “The content was well planned and delivered….overall an excellent course”
