    "I throughly enjoyed this course, it was interactive, engaging and fun while giving you all the tools to start a journey on becoming a life coach. 
    This isn’t a course that has no follow up and just teaches you then finished with you. Metanoeo provide group supervision, which is included in membership to the guild, and guidance when ever it is required as well as follow on courses and CPD events. 
    Throughly recommended."
