What our clients say

"Deceptively simple. Christine enabled the group to explore difficult issues in a way that seemed very natural."

"Superb. Food for thought and action!"

 "At first I wasn't sure if I would get on with the style – I wanted to be "told" what to do, but I came to appreciate the idea of thinking for myself!"

"Very open, focused and friendly and obviously highly skilled and experienced."

"This was the best training course I ever attended"

"A very good teaching style which was simultaneously relaxed and authoritative. She created a comfortable atmosphere from the beginning, provided highly relevant materials and practical advice about real life situations."
