The course had a perfect balance of practice and theory and provided a secure learning environment which allowed me to step out of my comfort zone, be vulnerable and make mistakes.  I engaged in the course with the genuine desire to help others; in the process I learnt so much about myself.  I can truly say I am not the same person who started training 12 months ago.  I identified false beliefs about myself that had disabled my full potential as a human being and through that awareness have broken their hold on my life.  I have been empowered by the process and subsequently marched through numerous personal barriers .
