"The Online Drama Therapy Webinar was a professional, informative session and well worth the investment! Having to move to virtual working due to COVID-19 naturally came with some anxieties, however Monique instantly put these at ease. Her knowledge and experience has opened my eyes to new ways of working which I have put into practice since the course. Having space for discussion/questions was a real benefit.
I left feeling positive and energised - thank you!"
