What People Are Saying:

Highly recommend this workshop and the CMFR. It’s the best training I’ve ever attended. Well structured, highly informative, great balance of practical and theory. Ruth and Linda made us all very welcome and at ease. Their knowledge is incredible. It was a bit of lightbulb moment for me.

Alex Thomas

I have completed a few courses with MFR UK both in person and online. The course content is very well presented and thorough. I felt very confident practicing my skills after completing. Ruth and Linda are both fantastic teachers and I am looking forward to learning more.
