"We have always believed in the benefits of counselling, and how counselling can help an individual find hope and the courage to grow and blossom. We decided to get together and create a safe and nurturing learning environment that is dedicated to inspire individuals who share our heartbeat and purpose towards developing ourselves for a highly fulfilling career in counselling. This was the beginning of ECTA – this Academy is a realisation of a lifelong dream.”
