“I really enjoyed the work we did on resilience. Actually I was surprised it was so engaging – and I came away feeling really positive about my next steps forward.”

“Everyone who participated thought it was an excellent, well-organised and prepared course… The combination of acting and psychology made for a very interesting approach and made the training different to any other ones we have been part of in the past.”

“If you get a chance to work with Katya, do it! You won’t regret it! I’ve found it invaluable and so did the other people on the course.”
