“Personally having the advice guidance training that I have really helped me when I changed my career, I was able to transfer the skills that I had and use them with confidence, when working with my families.  It was noticed by my colleagues immediately that I had some former knowledge as my interviews were professional, structured and I was successful in obtaining all the information in one session”
