I have studied at other programs before and so often felt like I didn’t know what to do when trying to find fitting remedies. After studying at Baylight I have more resources, greater understanding, improved confidence, and most importantly, I am getting better results with my cases! Not to mention the cohort and instructors are warm and wonderful.
