Improved Relationships

An increased sense of self-worth and assurance positively influences how we relate to others.

This course was fantastic. It contained a real mix of people and experiences, and the worksheets help put some meaning behind some thoughts and understanding that have already crossed my mind. The delivery by Lerryn was brilliant, and hearing her experiences was wonderful, with some humour mixed in there to help people feel really at ease.
