I became aware of the contribution I could make to teaching

I was recommended to Fidelma for interview preparation for my Teacher Education interview in St. Pats. She gave me a great grounding. I developed real confidence in myself and became more aware of the contribution I could make to teaching. She wanted the words I uttered to be my own not ones that were learned off. She always encouraged me to have a view and to back it up. I learned to apply some excellent techniques. I am now in my second year of teacher education and delighted with my choice.

Advice and support at the right time was essential for our son

My son went to see Dr. Healy having dropped out of NUIG half way through his first year. He had made a poor course choice and very soon dropped behind. It hit his confidence hard. Fidelma worked with him over a series of sessions and carried out some tests that helped him look at his motivation and personality. He needed help with anxiety too. He got some good guidance and it made him feel good about himself again. He is now half way through a new course and is much more confident. Advice and support at the right time made all the difference.
