“I would just like to just say how much I enjoyed and valued the training session. Judy and Jasbinder did an excellent job and I feel that going forward if I come across an SEA client, I will be able to support them more fully because I have now an much better understanding and awareness of what to look out for and what questions to ask. Furthermore, Judy provided us with additional sources of information as well to facilitate any external signposting where necessary.” – Training participant
