"I have to say that I find this Counselling Skills course is exactly what’s missing in the astrological world. I think it should be an essential course for any astrologer that wants to work with clients. This course also answers some of the questions that I had for years and addresses issues that I’ve struggled with myself. I think it’s incredibly dense and I’ve already re-listened to some of the audio. I’m going to take some of the exercises from the course and I’m going to spend my autumn months working through them. I think it is an exceptional course and amazing tool to help reflect on your own practice."
