  Upcoming Programs  

NEW! One Day Set Yourself Free Personal Foundation Program

June 24th 2007 Sydney
In order to expand, improve and make the most out of life we must have a solid personal foundation. In this unique One Day Program you will assess your personal foundation, receive guidance on what you can do and leave the day with an action plan in place. For more information click here.

3 Day Set Yourself Free Program: 'Breaking the Family Trance'

July 13th - 15th Sydney
[Important Date Change to Previously Advertised]
Breaking the Family Trance will help you unlock unconscious psychological defences that keep you stuck. These defences arise from family of origin dynamics created in your formative years. This program covers the roles you took on; the ‘family rules’ (spoken or unspoken), and the unmet childhood needs, carried feelings and adopted negative beliefs about yourself and the world around you. For more information click here.

Weekly Group Program

July 9th - August 27th Sydney
This includes education, trance work and group therapy with the same group and facilitator each week. Each group will consist of up to eight participants and the education component will take place fortnightly. Group email and phone support, which is continuous the entire eight weeks. For more information click here.

2 Week Program: 'Love Matters'

August 6th – 17th Sydney
This two week accelerated program treats the multi- generational issues that have been absorbed in childhood and are negatively impacting your adult life. This program heals the effects of carried beliefs, feelings and behaviours. Specifically, we examine the adapted family roles that keep you from being authentic and drive unhealthy behaviours. The program then focuses on the unconscious relational patterns that keep us stuck in unhealthy lifestyles and unfulfilling or destructive relationships. For more information click here.
