Feedback from previous participants of Libby's courses:
"Libby is an exceptional instructor and really delivers this course well. I will seek to have Libby deliver the course to my staff in future training events."
"The instructor was very mindful of the nature of the course and the potential triggers that could arise. She respectfully made the course light enough to engage the participants in a way that made everyone comfortable. But at the same time she ensured the severity of the topic was understood by all."
"Libby was very approachable and made everything understandable and everyone feel comfortable.. Would 100% recommend her to others."
