“I completed the Smart TMS Prescriber Training recently and found the content to be excellent.  The training is 1:1 and was easy to fit in with my diary.  Despite having a pretty good knowledge of the topic already, I gained a lot from the first-hand experience of Pegah, the practitioner who delivered the training.   The session in clinic was particularly interesting, experiencing TMS for myself as well as gaining a better understanding of the importance of coil placement and protocol selection.  Pegah was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and was able to answer almost all of my questions.  My session with Leigh, Medical Director and consultant psychiatrist, rounded the training off very well, filling in any blanks.  Highly recommended”.
