Student success stories

After considerable research, I decided a Relate couple counselling course was my best option. I’d benefited from Relate counselling some years previously, the courses were well-respected and accredited and it all looked really interesting. After all, relationships are at the heart of most counselling in one way or another and I wanted to be the best equipped counsellor possible. Cate
