Registering interest in Future MSC and Therapeutic Creative Arts Courses

If you are looking to attend an MSC course please register your interest below.

Having seen an upsurge in the amount of people that would like to attend an MSC course, I am asking people to register if the courses offered here cannot meet their needs. I am sometimes able to add more courses if I have enough interested people. 
Please fill in the form at the link below and I will be in touch.
