Testimonials

I finished the workbook in one week. I enjoyed the examples. I was able to relate and comprehend the point of life skills. I now know that no matter where I came from, I can choose to live a better life.

New Science

While the medical field in the last 20 years has seen great advances, the life skills counseling field has not. Most offender counseling programs are sterile lifeless recopies of things written years ago. One only has to look at the top 10 best-selling books to realize what works and what doesn't. Actually it is not new science but old science rediscovered. Books like The Alchemist, The Thin Book Of Appreciative Inquiry and Loving What Is contain the secrets to changing self-defeating thoughts and behaviors.
