Before the course when my eldest daughter (14 years old) approached me I might appear to be listening but not take on board what she was saying. I was also taking on the responsibility of everyone in the family which was giving me loads of stress and I never knew if I was coming or going.
The biggest thing I got from the course was the expansion exercise which gave me the power to realise I was in control of everything I do. I have now connected to my inner self giving me the ability to know what I need to do next.
The communication with my fellow buddies has allowed us to become an extended family, no matter what the challenge there is always someone to lend a helping hand. What we’ve realised is that we were always great but didn’t know it.
‘Level of listening’ has helped me to listen to everyone on a much deeper level and everyone equally which has led to a remarkable change in atmosphere in the whole family. And the amount of arguments has reduced to only 25% of what they were and I can see that being reduced.
My eldest daughter was my biggest challenge but because of the work I have done on myself, she has responded with remarkable changes to her behaviour. I came to the course initially to help with these challenges and found it has impacted on every area of my life and our family.
My motto now is ‘that anything is possible given the right resources’. I want to share the essence of what I have achieved with the world – starting in Strood. I am looking forward to phases 2 and 3 of the programme in the sense of growing as a person.”
