Recent Feedback from a Heartwood Graduate:

...just so that you know, I have a few regular long term adult clients & I work 1 day a week in a school counselling kids with behavioural issues. In addition, I work supporting deaf young people in care, all of this I love & have more doors opening soon.  I could never have walked through these doors without my Heartwood training, I'm in lots of gratitude for that!
