Q: “I’ve attended another class with you, will I hear new material in this class?”

A: “Yes you will. We’ve also moved some material across to the new class so that we have time to do it justice and are able to give you all the info rather than skip through it quickly.

Q:  “I’m worried there’ll be lots of group or couples work at the class, will there?”

A: “Rest assured – the classes are very unthreatening, we are very careful not to put people into situations where they feel compelled to share or be in a group when they prefer not to.”
