Higher Education counselling student Janet Shone
Janet Shone, aged 53, returned to studying to gain her counselling qualifications and, after completing the Level 5 diploma in therapeutic counselling, donned an academic cap and gown to attend the college’s first higher education graduation ceremony.
Janet said: “Coming back to studying was really challenging but so rewarding – I’d recommend it to anyone. And the fact that my family could share my graduation was wonderful.”
Janet will be combining her new qualification with existing skills to become a holistic therapist.
