Stephanie created the most amazing learning environment in which I felt safe, supported, and with that it felt easy to open up. During the 6 days we learnt many different techniques and were given plenty of time to practice those.
The result is that I went back home as a changed person. I am more relaxed and calmer. I feel more confident in situations in which I used to feel insecure. I now do things easily, I would not have done before. Often I only realise later what I have just done!
The anchoring exercises helped here in particular. Other techniques improved my way of communicating. Using positive language has had a really positive effect on the communication with my teenagers.
The PERFECT outcomes exercise was really helpful for setting myself new goals.
Stephanie had a fantastic way of facilitating the course with her calm, caring and humorous way. Each morning the day started with reflection time, which Stephanie allowed to run until everything was said, followed by relaxation time.
I loved the fact that the course was in Raglan. Being away from the normal day to day activities and fully focusing on the course, combined with some lovely morning beach walks made this week very special.
