“Yesterday marked the end of my 4 years of TA psychotherapy training. What a journey of growth and discovery it’s been. I have met and shared so many rich emotional experiences with the amazing, authentic people I’ve met along the way. We’ve had tears, joy, sadness, pain, fear, anger, love, intimacy and everything in between and I’ve learnt to appreciate humanity in all its messy glory. And very importantly, we’ve had a lot of laughs! Thanks to The Link Centre for being such an awesome training centre and for supporting us with gentleness and compassion on our journeys. Oh and well done me- yay!”  Joanna Dice – July 2019
