Philosophy of the individual/family sessions:
Proactivity is the key. We learn best when our aeroplane is horizontal, not when we are spiralling and out of control. Personal development is an ongoing and lifelong journey and one that requires regular investments and reflection, the examination of beliefs, a teachable spirit, consideration of new perspectives and an earnest willingness to grow as a human being. Siblings and parents: are warmly encouraged to attend. It is great to be on the same page and speaking the same language. We have the capacity for up to six people. Strict Cancellation Policy:
