“I have had 2 years struggling with university life as a mature student. She has kept me going when I wanted to give up. Been there, when i had nobody else to turn to. Been understanding, caring, sympathetic , encouraging and taught me how to apply psychology to my life. Never telling me what to do, helping me find options and not shouting at me when I fall short. She is the reason I’m still here at university when I felt all was lost.”

Student Testimonial

“It was a blessing to have her as my mentor and enjoyed working with her. Her patience was mind-blowing. I will miss the sessions we had, they were encouraging and motivating. She lifted me up when I was very low, and for that, I will never forget her and bringing me to this final stage.”


We have a great team of support.

“It was God given blessing to have him as my study skills tutor and enjoyed working with him. He was patient in guiding me to understand, no matter how long it took. I will never forget his sessions. He was punctual and knowledgeable. If he didn’t understand something because I couldn’t explain properly, he carefully investigated my lecture slides to have a better understanding to guide me, he was very encouraging and motivative. He lifted me up when I was slow and wanted to give up, a time with him unforgettable, and could not have got to the stage without him”
