What Students Say

Linarti Hiu, 2015
( Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling )
"I feel very lucky I found this school by chance and I decided to go for it, I learnt a lot of things and it has changed my life. The modules were interesting and full of surprises and I found myself really lacked of something that I need in order to live better, and be a better me. I understand myself better and learn to understand others. Happiness is our choice. If we choose to be happy, no other people can make our live miserable. If we choose to live in misery, nobody can make us happy. In this school, I get to know lots of wonderful friends, lots of opportunity and lots of fun. Life is not about waiting for the storm to stop, but to enjoy and learn how to dance in the rain. I believe future me will thank me for all the choice that I make today."
