Student Testimonials 

Women Gender & Social Justice Studies

Doing this course over the two years is the absolute single best thing I have ever done for myself. As a busy working mum of six, it has opened my eyes and mind to thinking, questioning and investigating facts in a different way. As an individual I can't wait to study more and in turn educate my children for the future.

I gained so much from the Women, Gender and Social Justice Course. Friendship, a sense of solidifying my own beliefs through information. I never knew how much I could achieve through doing the course or how well I could do essay writing. I've learned so much about feminist and social justice. I looked forward to my class each week. It's a time for me to step out of the stress of everyday life and learn and reflect in a very supportive and nurturing space. I couldn't recommend the course enough.

Seeking Self Compassion

At first I thought like seek self-compassion "yeah right" but as the weeks went by I started to take and do some of the suggestions on board. For the first time, in a long time I actually feel content, happy with my life, enjoy the kids, really opened my mind and will be sad for it to finish.


I would like to say thank you for everything Angela has taught me. I feel I worked through a lot of personal issues and it will definitely help me move forward. It was really enjoyable.

Laughing Your Way To Health & Happiness

Never realised how difficult it can be not to complain/be negative on issues, hopefully I will do less from now on. Importance of positivity more aware of same. I now try to make other people aware of the importance of laughter and I try to avoid negative people. All in all really enjoyed the experience.


I found the course helped me to be aware of negativity and how it can drag one down. How fun and laughter relaxes both mind and body. Good group willing to let go and have fun. Enjoyed comedy films and TV programmes, very positive.

Initially I was confused as I thought the class was about laughter as the weeks went by I began to realise how good it would be to get people out of themselves. More about communication I enjoyed the games and exercise.

Introduction To Art

I joined the Introductory Art Group last term and enjoyed it so much I returned. I was a little nervous when I first joined wondering if i would be embarrassed or if I was good enough, however, all these  fears quickly washed away.  


This is the best class I have ever been to. Angela is a fantastic teacher. I have learned so much, and she creates such a warm and friendly atmosphere, where people interact and get to know each other. I look forward to coming here every week. 

I my early years I had a chance to study Art in school. However it was not a positive experience. This time the class was very positive, enjoyable and fun. I think I now have a new personal attitude to Art. I now have a can do attitude.
