Certificate in Song Therapy
Certainly this is
an opportunity to learn about the wonder of music as medicine. However
it is also a chance to step back and give yourself a little time to explore
your own needs and what is important to you in your own life. As we will
discover this is a very interesting part of the journey.
Thank you for your
