„These were not easy studies and we sometimes came out sweaty and tear-stained; however, we also came out stronger and better able to know who we are and who we can become, thus becoming better counselors in various contexts. We have become more focused, open-minded, hopeful, responsible, and last but not least, happier.“
„We learned practical methods and we got our training in these methods. We learned in fact unbelievably much during this short time. I now have tools to better my life and possibly the lives of others as a counselor. In addition, I see the need to seek more education in this field.“
„We focused on ourselves and the studies widened both my inner and my outer world. I got acquainted with a new learning method, learning about people with other people and with myself as the learning material is quite an effective method. A very practical study.“
„I have absorbed eveything which was offered, among that was what my co-students offered, we had a classroom full of specialists in various subjects. We also had fun and laughed a lot.“
„These studies have made me a better individual and a better professional. I would like to encourage everybody who wants to see their dreams come true to get up and apply to this school. You will not regret it.“
„I have become more tolerant, more understanding and less prejudiced, and I look at more issues as projects than problems since I attended your school.“
