A review from one of our learners:

I have completed a few courses with TNTA but this one was by far my favourite. The subject matter was hard hitting but the podcasts with real life people really hit home and are so powerful. I have so much more compassion and understanding because of doing this course. I would highly recommend it, it was brilliant.
