What our Students say…

I have evolved and become, not just a therapist, but, I think, a calmer and more fulfilled individual.

I have (also) experienced and been enriched by much kindness and understanding from individual tutors and other workers at NGP and have formed warm and growth-enhancing relationships with a good few of my student colleagues.

A journey I could never have predicted, the end result only achieved due to the invaluable help and support of all my peers and good friends.

I had an amazing weekend and I’m still buzzing! :)
