''I have a masters in psychology and thought this course might not stretch me enough but..........Carol Lucas was friendly, professional, engaging, funny and highly motivational. The days were full of interesting pieces of theory and exploratory exercises that made absolute sense to me - I liked the structure and focus blended with a relaxing and enjoyable approach - fantastic and I am to continue.''
