"It was a perfect course, the course leader was absolutely amazing, super knowledgeable and at the same time so approachable and fun.

"It is a shame that the course is finished as it was truly enjoyable and I have learned a lot - thank you!" Andrea, Brighton

"The course was extremely good value and fascinating, every week I was gripped and looked forward to the next session!  I had never really realised or considered how nutrition and our bodies are connected to everything in the universe.  This course has certainly opened my eyes and made me think about things in a different way.  The course worked well because Kirsten followed a general framework she adapted it each week making it more relevant according to our interests.  She conveyed a wealth of knowledge in a simple and easy to understand way, as well as giving us practical ideas on how best to utilise the information and incorporate it into our daily lives.  I left the course feeling motivated and committed to making nutritional lifestyle changes."  Fiona
