Teboni Blair - Community Services "In my years as a self-employed hairdresser I often felt I was counselling clients as much as doing their hair, so it seemed like a natural progression to become a counsellor. I was nervous about returning to study but the amazing support I received from my peers and teachers at TAFE Queensland Brisbane helped my transformation into a counselling professional and confident individual."
