Thank you for such an informative & interesting course – right from the first point of contact through to delivery of the course I have been very impressed. Sue is truly inspiring person and it feels a privilege to have spent the day with her

Just to say that the course was incredibly interesting, thought provoking and educational. It was wonderful to meet Sue and spend the day with her. Sue has so much knowledge to impart and it was all so fascinating. The day was relaxed but well paced and it was easy to keep up with every detail. I felt that I learned so much in such a short space of time. , I've already had some amazing results using the techniques Sue showed us on the course and I am thrilled to be able to join her on the 3 day course. I just know it's going to be life and approach-to-work changing and I think my clients are going to be blown away.

I always enjoy  doing a  course in Sue's  home which has a serene atmosphere, relaxing and more personable than any hotel conference room and also allows for small groups  providing an environment in which I prefer to learn. It was interesting to listen to Sue's experiences and pass on her knowledge.  I left learning some new techniques to include in a reflexology session ,but importantly to me, more confidence  when meeting a client  with life challenging illness. I also like the fact that Sue relates her work to energy too ,not all reflexologists  do.
