      I am just completing my L2 Counselling training at Simms, it has been a great journey!! Our tutor was extremely knowledgeable and experienced which was great as I had confidence that what I was being taught was backed by real world experience and not just the theory. This course was more than just my start on the journey to becoming a counselor, it was invaluable for the personal growth I have gained.

      ~ Bryan

      I actually managed to work through things years old, and learn more about myself. The tutor was very knowledgeable, and supportive every step of the way. I would recommend it to everyone. The price is great too 👍
