I learned a lot of very valuable techniques which have given me great confidence with regards to any threat of physical attack. They are very simple but very effective. I am very conscious that we have a responsibility for the safety of our staff and I will be enrolling them all on this course.”

Some great tips too on self awareness & confidence. Would highly recommend this as a mother and for people in general.”
