"It helped me identify the bitterness I felt, showed me a way to deal with it and gave me hope for the future. Thank you so much!"
"Seeing others, going through the same hurts and struggles, made me realise that I was "allowed" to laugh again..."

"You have made the group so easy for us to share and come away feeling an awful lot better on a Monday evening - I am not sure I would be feeling so positive (some of the time) without having these Monday evenings."

"It is great having people that understand what I'm going through because they have actually been there or are going through the same."
"The best thing about the course is having free and frank conversations with each other about our journeys, emotions, past and future. It is a sustained conversation, not just one night or a weekend"
"The best thing about the course is being connected to a group of people who were in a similar position as I am and hearing how they were handling their situation. Reading the book or watching the videos alone would have been difficult without having a group to discuss with. "
"Balanced, realistic, practical, non-judgemental. Ability to be honest as you were with complete strangers!!!"
"Being able to share my feelings with other people in a similar position, not feeling alone as none of my circle of friends are going through this thankfully!!"
