What is/was the best thing about your course?
The flexibility of being able to study at my own pace. Being able to study a British recognized diploma whilst currently based over-seas. I feel I accomplished what I set out to. The course I feel was detailed and covered the foundations of empathetic counselling very well. My tutor always marked my assignments so promptly and feedback comments were always positive. Thank you.Other comments?
It would have been great to have perhaps had some more interaction with other students on the same course and also to chat a little more with my tutor. However, being 6 hours behind GMT sometimes was more the problem. It took me a year to complete the course - not sure whether this is longer than most or average but thought that I would mention for reference for other potential students. Good luck to fellow new students on this course I hope/feel that you will not be disappointed. Thank you Stonebridge.
