Course overview

Discovering our own path through life and treading it in a manner with which we are comfortable is often an extremely difficult task, and accepting the need for change is a ‘painful experience’. Leave behind negative attitudes and destructive thought processes, learn how to have a fresh and positive new beginning and enjoy the rest of life’s journey. This course is vital for the student requiring self-help but also for the therapist to teach the techniques as part of treatment programmes.
