"My time completing the HICAT course has been both enjoyable and challenging for me at times! I have learned many new skills that I will take with me into creating my business which will be to support and encourage others to be the best version of themselves whilst promoting self-love, self-expression and encouragement to those that cross my path in the future. I have received valuable feedback on my submissions and support when it was all getting to be too much for me at times and I thank everyone who played a part in my being able to successfully complete the HICAT course."
"This has been such a beautiful journey. Such a humbling reminder to seek creativity when times are tough. This has been the hardest year of my life with so much grief, loss and trauma however I am eternally grateful for your continuous patience, understanding and for all the second chances which is reflective of life. My ultimate lesson from HICAT is to never give up :) I really enjoyed diving into the different creative practices but also love sharing what I have been studying with others, with the hopes of normalising creative arts therapy into the education system."
"I absolutely loved this course. It came at a time in my life where I was ready to juggle studying with some letting go of area's in my business. It enabled me to pivot, realign and grow personally and professionally. I found the course to be a mixture of Holistic Therapist, where you do the work yourself, as well as the therapist role where you can analyze each stage and appreciate. I also thought it was the ultimate business coach to keep us accountable every step of the way, setting us up for success."

For My Support/Tutoring
Below are some testimonials from past students on different courses (all can be verified via my LinkedIn Profile)
Emily (U.K) Wrote:
"I could not have asked for a better tutor throughout the programme. She was always so helpful, friendly, engaging and very responsive. It is obvious that Joanna puts a lot of hard work into making every student feel supported during their learning programme. Creating a positive and fun environment for learning, which is not an easy task when the course is online based. It was a pleasure to work with her and I hope our paths cross again in the future."
Elisabeth (Italy) Wrote:
"I feel very lucky to have had the chance to work with someone as outstanding as Joanna! I had the pleasure of working with her virtually for about a year.
She was a huge support, always reactive & extremely knowledgeable regarding L&D, HR and people relationships in general. I was consistently impressed by her L&D/HR/people skills, her empathy & her reactivity &, I have rarely worked with somebody who provides support as effortlessly as Joanna did for me throughout my participation to the L&D Level V certification.
She is also a very positive/bright person & her love & passion for what she does always made online classes super interactive.
I think Joanna is a fabulous asset to her company (as she would be to any other company!) & she was an amazing tutor! She is a fabulous person/L&D professional."
Philippa (U.K) Wrote:
"Throughout the course Joanna provided consistent communication with at least twice weekly emails providing useful resources and advice. These regular emails really made a difference in feeling part of a learning community and not isolated during my learning. Her passion and expert knowledge of L&D was evident throughout which I found very motivating and inspirational.
The level of support Joanna provided was exceptional and by far the highest level of online tutoring support I have experienced. I always knew that if I had queries or needed guidance on my assignments, Joanna would reply promptly which was very reassuring. "
Wendy (Australia) Wrote:
"Joanna has a wonderful attitude towards her clients: she is professional, highly supportive, encouraging and engaging. Joanna is proactive, seeking to offer support and assistance to students to ensure they have everything they need to complete assignments and achieve positive results. She initiated Cohort cafes as a part of the course, an online discussion for students to share their thoughts and discuss their understanding of the course material and assessment requirements, which I found very valuable. Thank you, Joanna, your leadership and support during the course helped me greatly to get through the course!"
Helen (U.K) Wrote:
"Joanna is simply amazing, she is full of encouragement, warmth & positivity. She genuinely wants to help people be the best versions of themselves and is an absolutely brilliant tutor/ coach. Joanna is particularly skilled in building strong relationships with people quickly, making them feel instantly at ease. Her outstanding knowledge of L&D mixed with her ability to motivate, inspire and build confidence made my experience of online study exceptional."
Patrick (U.K) Wrote:
"Joanna has been my course tutor during my CIPD Learning and Development studies and has made a huge impact on both my enjoyment of and development from this course. She is both an excellent tutor and mentor and whereas fulfilling this role in an online environment might be challenging for some, Joanna's extensive knowledge of L&D and the learner experience alongside her passion, positivity and people skills have delivered timely, relevant and helpful support throughout. This is exemplified by her uncanny knack of knowing just when her learners need a "pick me up" email or post. It has been a pleasure working with Joanna. "
George (U.K) Wrote:
"Joanna is an expert in L&D. While delivering nuanced content via webinars, and through follow up emails, Joanna consistently coached to enable learners and develop deep learning. Her knowledge and research example base is extensive, and she is more than willing to share it.
The advice Joanna offers is open and allows learners to explore a range of sources and directions, rather than simply telling. She develops the confidence of learners, and since finishing the course Joanna tutored, has continued to support and advise. I always felt like a fellow L&D professional, rather than a learner taking their first steps towards new ideas and concepts.
I have been a teacher for 21 years; Joanna's calm and precise nurturing is among the most effective I have experienced in that time."

"Joanna is an amazing support to all of her learners. There were a few times I had a few jitters and managed to gain a lot of confidence in what I was doing after talking things through with her. An amazing tutor all round!!"
