What Our Students Say

I will be able to take these strategies to my faculty and help them deal with their management difficulties.

Karla Olmos
St Clair High School

I was lucky enough to try out some techniques with a year eight girl today and I felt 100% more confident speaking to a young girl who has been reluctant to open up to anybody and has been in and out of hospital over the past month. Before I knew it 45 minutes had passed and I had said barely anything. The student said “it was nice to actually talk and not be lectured”.

Very powerful tools rocky!!! Cheers.

Blair
