“The seminars were like a sigh of relief for me, a comfort to know that there are others out there that have the same feelings in their blended family. Since attending your seminar I have felt more and more at peace about my feelings toward my ‘step child’.” Nicki

“Great! Practical, easy to understand and apply strategies.” Frank Eijgenraam (Counsellor)

“I found the seminar encouraging and despite knowing no one at the seminar beforehand I didn’t leave feeling I had been amongst strangers but ordinary people with the ordinary problems seeking solutions and help to make their new families work better. I gained some new strategies and had quite a few laughs in the process.” Michelle

“My fiancé and I both found the seminar on blended families to be very useful. We both took some great learning’s from the seminar and I think it has brought us closer together as a couple.” Nicola Hancock
