“Very comprehensive course. Really appreciate sharing your personal experiences. Thank you so much!!!” – Anonymous Student, 25 June 2024 (2nd intake)

“Martha is a generous in her vulnerability and authenticity as an educator and practitioner. This course is important for any therapist to attend as sex and sexuality are not talked about especially in Asian families and in an Asian context. Sex and sexuality is an important facet of human relationship and functioning which has gone changes and meaning as time evolved. It is especially important for counsellors to learn about such topics more especially in crafting healthy sexual conversations with our young and what they need to know.” – Tonia Goh, 12 Dec 2023 (1st intake)

“Sexuality is one of the major components in life to most of the people, while it is not a comfortable topic to talk about especially in Asia. Similarly, such a professional course is rather rarely conducted in the educational field, even in Singapore. The structure of progamme and coverage of planned topics is relevant and wide, facilitating a better disposition as a professional helper with the added knowledge and skill sets when serving the concerned clienteles.” – Krish Phua, 6 Dec 2023 (1st intake)

“Dr. Martha’s expertise in evidence-based sexuality is exceptional. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn her framework, gaining confidence in supporting clients with both relationship and sexual concerns. This certification provides a holistic overview, combining macro and micro skills, filling a crucial gap in the field. Thank you, Martha, for offering this invaluable certification and for offering to provide continuous support.” – Sharinder Kaur, 16 Nov 2023 (1st intake)

“A taboo topic which has rooms for more attention and awareness. Sexual health is as important as physical and mental health. A holistic approach and wellness to life.” – Shaza Teo, 16 Nov 2023 (1st intake)

“Great info and education for all mental health professions.” – Eve, 11 Aug 2023 (1st intake)
