Student Feedback July 2013
At the end of every training year smcp students are invited to evaluate the training at smcp. Over 40 different aspects of the training are listed for evaluation. The External Moderator has independently analysed this feedback in line with Higher Education evaluative systems:
Clearly there are more complex relationships at work in psychotherapy training, and some of the positive feedback may be related to these: however, this score is well above what would be expected and reflects an exceptionally high level of student satisfaction.''

The 101 Course at smcp
Very professional and welcoming a fantastic, refreshing day. C0 March 2014

Professional, fun, knowledgeable....... KT March 2011
Clear, good communication, organised. Informative and interesting hand-outs. I was very nervous about attending on my own and without knowing anyone but was made to feel so welcome I felt fine very quickly. AY March 2014
I really enjoyed the course it was very relaxed. I found the trainer very friendly, with a good knowledge of TA who was very approachable. LW March 2012
Very friendly, fun and professional. I learnt so much and thank you! BP March 2012
Great thank you! Even though you had to move fast - great at clearly explaining, teaching, exercises, answering questions, using examples.........but getting through all the material. Great learning environment - comfy, friendly, good trust built, great teaching. JF March 2013
I have just completed the 101 course at smcp and have been asked to to fill in this evaluation. I don't normally like completing these sorts of forms but in this case I am happy to. I have experienced fantastic customer service here: my emails and phone calls were responded to very promptly and all the information I was requesting was responded to in a personal, conscientious and yet professional way. The venue is fantastic - one of the nicest I have seen and the course so enjoyable - a great learning experience - thank you. CB March 2010
Carol Lucas was knowledgeable, energetic, very engaging, full of clear examples, funny and sensitive. Every question was dealt with thoroughly and all of us felt comfortable and important. RW April 2013
Excellent! What more can I say - entertaining and easy to understand and the group was great. WR 2012
I liked the environment, the trainer, the group, the content and the style of training.
We had such a good time and I am sorry the group won't be meeting again - thank you.
'I very much liked the activities which allowed me to understand the practicalities of Transactional Analysis. I also liked how the course encouraged self-reflection and openness. Carol Lucas was very enthusiastic and responded well to questions: appreciating the contribution of everyone and giving us time to think and discuss aspects of the theory.' CM 2012
'I liked the informal and relaxed atmosphere and the lack of pressure to participate. A lot of information was covered which was well structured but there was a great balance of teaching, exercises and time for debate. Carol was well prepared but relaxed and created a good environment to learn and share.' JY 2013
'I was very satisfied with this course we covered the majority of TA which I was interested in and the style of teaching was very clear, engaging and fun. I am now going to apply for the main training course and can't wait' PR 2012
'The setting, content and presentation of this course were great and I felt there were no fillers! Carol was open, very friendly and yet professional - obviously enjoyed her subject - thank you.' PT 2014
'I liked the structure of this course and the way it allowed for personal and professional development. It was also good fun and I met some nice people. Carol was welcoming and had a high level of expertise as a trainer.' CN 2012
'I really enjoyed the space and the light in the room and the generosity of the Tutor. The material flowed so well - gradually implementing more complex theory. I particularly enjoyed the humour and this helped us all feel relaxed and comfortable very quickly. I appreciated the Tutor being open to challenge and maintaining the respect of the group.' YL 2013
