  • The 02 February course was a very intimate one. Many people cancelled on the day for various reasons, which left a very small class. With the extra time that this created, the course ended up including an NLP process for each participant. Much transformation ensued. The next course is Tuesday 08 March.

    E-mail from Darin McDowall (aka Darin the Magician):

    “Being a magician, I spend a lot of time with youngsters. Bullying and self-esteem have always been an issue for kids, even more so these days. Not enough is being done to help with this so I was very excited to hear that you have put together a program and especially one that is aimed at younger children. Prevention is better than cure so getting the message to them at an earlier age is vital. The song that you have written is strong and exciting and I can see kids just loving to sing along and participate. The moral in the story is easy to follow and the song will provide young ones with a ‘powerful’ tool to cope with victimisation and low esteem; your book and CD combination is going to be a hit. I encourage new parents or parents who are looking for advice and help with their parenting to do this course.”
