Happy Student Story

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our students say:
I enrolled in an IEFT two day course as part of continuing professional development based on an interest in psychodynamic therapies. I found the course incredibly helpful for understanding myself and my clients and Judith’s wisdom and compassion made learning pleasurable.

Recognising the value of what I was learning and realising that a commitment to completing assignments would deepen the learning experience I decided to engage in the certificate course. Although the course has required a commitment of time, effort and finances – I have found the rewards well worth the cost and effort.
