  4. Confidence to engage with clients, with these issues.
  5. Certificate of completion.

Testiomonials


'I wanted to take the time to write and thank you for such an informative and enjoyable training session on Saturday. Your delivery was an excellent combination of factual information and the opportunity for some thoughtful group discussion. The break out rooms worked very well for the smaller groups too. I thought we had a lovely group of people on the course. My thought that a whole days' training on Zoom would be quite arduous. This was not the case at all and the day went very quickly, so thank you! I've just signed up to the Body Image course so I'll see you again in November'.
