I have used Ray on various different occasions, i can not rate ray highly enough. Me and the kids have had quite an eventful past and really in didnt know how much we needed rays help until we had it. Ray has helped my son through his anger issues (he is a 13 yr old as well) helped my daughter finally sleep at night and made me realise that the world is a wonderful place. Thank you ray! Please do not be worried about calling Ray - he will change your life like he has ours

Open College UK Ltd

71 Thurlestone Rd, Birmingham B31 4LP, UK – 01527 875497

I am proud to have studied with Open College. I love the experience and mode of study - Flexibility. They offer loads of courses which are interesting an relevant. Also, their customer service is superb and are very helpful, showing empathy. I have bought 4 courses so far, and I am planning to buy more in future. Thumbs up! Open College UK Ltd, Birmingham.

As a mother of a young child I found my child development psychology course invaluable to me. An excellent course that taught me loads about what not to do when your child has a tantrum. As a result of this course I am having a far better relationship with her now and know how better to handle trying situations when she misbehaves. It is all about knowing their feelings and reading the signs before they flare up. I recommend this course to anyone with a difficult child. The course arrived within a few days and there was always an email response to my question when I needed help. Overall a good service and I would recommend them for homestudy courses in the area that I studied.
