You will need to understand the demanding and personal nature of the course. Whilst this course is by no means ‘therapy’ for some it can present an emotional challenge. We therefore ask you to consider whether you are able to take on the course at this time. For example, we welcome applications from those who have experience of therapy, however, joining the course whilst still in therapy needs to be given careful consideration.

Please note: if you have been in recovery we ask that you have been clear for a minimum of six months before applying for this course.
