Reviews



“Very informative, felt course exceeded my expectations. Gained an understanding of CBT and skills that need further practice before being able to offer as a service to the patients. Work around NATs/changing these can be adapted and used at all stages throughout our current audiology pathway. Will be interested to receive feedback on my assignments as a ‘real’ gage/measure of what I’ve taken in and retained and also, importantly, what needs further work on. An insight to the difficulties that may/will be present in future patients and knowledge to access the skills do deal with and manage these situations.”
