"I have loved this course, Sole’s delivery and provision of information has been excellent. I feel I have completed a personal journey which has given me a connection I didn’t realise I was lacking. I owned my tarot cards for around 6 years without even opening them but now I love them." Bree

"Sole was a fantastic teacher – gave us plenty of practical guidance and feedback in the WhatsApp group where we did homework in between classes was as important for the learning as the classes were, and Sole gave us so much of her time and knowledge to help us understand the cards. I came away from the course feeling confident that I understand the structure of the tarot and basic card meanings and how to do basic 1-3 card readings. I’m looking forward to learning further with Sole" Cassandra

"Fantastic workshop, very informative, empowering. Just wonderful and amazing!" Emma

"AMAZING! Sole really knows her stuff and I learned a lot. I finally feel confident to do readings without the help of Google. Thank you, Sole!" Maddie

"Great insight on all the cards and their interpretation, a good way to get confidently started." Elise

"Very informative, great course, great tutor." Damaris

"Thank you very much for a very interesting and exciting eight weeks. Have learned so much! Sole you are an incredible teacher. Thank you for all your insight, knowledge and intuition. Thank you!" Michele

"I’ve done a few courses now with the school and this was definitely one of my favourites. I thought the way the course was structured was really brilliant both for learning and engaging with the course. I loved that there was achievable homework and felt genuinely gutted to miss even just one of the lessons, as each one was so well laid out. I thought the Whatsapp group was such a great way to engage also and learn throughout the week, not just one day a week – I enjoyed this just as much as the classes! The daily reading/journal really helped me to understand more so that I was much more in touch with what I was learning and prepared for each lesson. I also really liked the way it was a communal group rather than breakout rooms and feeding back or one by one comments. So if you didn’t feel confident enough to share some days you didn’t have to – it’s a lot less pressure this way. I would (and already have!) recommended the course to others. Overall I thought it was really great and a fun, interesting way of learning something new. Big thanks to Sole who is a really patient and inspiring teacher. I’d love to do the next course now!" Daisy

"Sole has integrity and a real commitment to teaching, is supportive, interesting and fun, I signed up on impulse and am very glad I did!" Nichola
