I chose this course as I would eventually like to work as a counsellor and I enjoy helping people. The course has been enjoyable so far and I have met some great people .We all seem to want to work towards a common goal, Rob has made it so easy to feel relaxed as he is very approachable. I would like to continue onto Level 3 Helping Skills but would prefer the course to run from January 2015 and not September 2015. Sandra Adams
I really enjoy the course and am excited to better my life from completing the course, the staff are very helpful and want me to achieve my best, I couldn’t ask for more support. Sarah Boyle
TMC has a great reputation which is why I came here to study bricklaying and to build a future career, it’s a fantastic learning environment the tutors are helpful and knowledgeable. Ben Fraser
I chose this course as I am a foster carer and wanted to learn counselling skills to help children. I have learned so much about myself as a person throughout the counselling courses leading to the foundation degree and also in the way I relate to others. The staff and the other students make the course a very supportive environment to learn. I love the course and hope to go on to achieve an honours degree. Then go on to counsel children.
