I was delighted to be selected for training, though a little worried about whether I would be OK. Six years on, I am now thinking of training as a supervisor. I have found the work tough at times, but thoroughly rewarding, seeing couples and individuals in deep distress or fear gradually coming through this. It has been an education for me, and a privilege. (Susan)

Placements at Marriage Care
