As far back as I can remember, I’ve always told heroic versions of my life to myself and others. My adoption is a classic example. I was chosen. I was special. Looking back now, I see that as a combination of shiny veneer – designed to look and feel good – and solid armour, to protect me from being hurt.

Thank you to journalist Jane Alexander for including us in her feature. You can read it on the Mail Online website here.

If you're interested in signing up to a Hoffman Process later in the year, our friendly enrolment team is available on the phone or via email, and happy to answer any questions you might have.

A one-to-one assessment call gives you time to discuss what happens on the course in detail, and also to decide whether it's right for you. If you do then go on to register, you're already a step ahead! The calls are completely confidential, and you don't need to have registered for a course to book an appointment.

Call us on 01903 88 99 90 or email and we'll take it from there.
