‘I really enjoyed Level 2 with Lotus. It has helped me to listen and interact with other people on a deeper and more authentic level. I have also enjoyed learning about myself – which was a pleasant surprise. The teachers are warm, friendly and very helpful. Thank you Lotus for making the training a very pleasant experience’.

‘What a wonderful course. I have achieved a lot with the brilliant guidance of Alison the course tutor. The skills I have learnt are life lessons. The biggest lesson was learning about myself and I am so much better for it. I love the professionalism and the support I received and I am using the mindfulness regularly. Especially the meditation techniques. Thank you for passing on these wonderful life skills.’ AW Feb19
‘I really enjoyed the Level 2 course, I especially enjoyed the mindfulness aspect of the teachings. We did a lot of self development and skills work/practise. It was lovely to see the group grow together and learn elements of self that weren’t seen previously. I particularly enjoyed the mindfulness days and readings from Budda. I found them really insightful and meaningful.’ KC Feb 19
‘I can highly recommend the Level 2 Counselling Skills course with Lotus Training. I have learnt so much about the skills required to become a counsellor, and I have also learnt a great deal about myself and my behaviours. The mindfulness element of the course has been nourishing for me and it has helped me in all aspects of my life.’ DD Feb 19
