Break the Cycle Level One - What Our Clients Say

Below is feedback from our clients who completed the most recent Level One Module.


An entertaining and informative presentation of life-enhancing learning, looking forward to the experiential learning!



The Level One Breaking the Cycle course really helped me to become more aware of my emotions, my actions and reactions. I have been going through a difficult time in my life. The course has been a way for me to feel like I was doing something to care for my mental health. Each week I look forward to it and each week I felt empowered leaving it. The hand outs game me an opportunity to stay focused throughout the week. I really look forward to Level 2. I am growing as a person.



Great course, very helpful, well worth doing.



I find this to be a brilliant course, very helpful and fulfilling.
