Don't just take our word for it, here's some feedback from people who have attended.

Thank you Tamba we found the session with Sharon on Friday very valuable, we both left feeling very informed and also excited about what is ahead of us. We couldn't have asked for a more professional and knowledgeable person to guide us through certain worries we had."

"Both myself and my husband found the course with Sharon fantastic. Sharon was great and exceeded our expectations with valuable information. She covered everything we wanted to know and also things that we hadn't even though about."

"I found the course really useful. There was lots of great discussion and some really valuable information"

"Excellent course - I now feel reassured about coping. I would definitely recommend the course to others"

"The course was fantastic and I would hihgly recommend it. The course tutor was very knowledgeable and approachable and answered all of our questions. It was very informative."
