Personal Change

Learning from the Past - Living in the Present - Looking to the Future

Bringing about positive personal change

Since 2008, we have been working in partnership with Future for Heroes (F4H) charity to deliver a residential course for ex-service personnel.    This is an example of the type of programme our team can deliver in this field.

The aim of the programme is to help serving members & veterans of the armed forces of all ranks to manage the dramatic change in cultures that occurs when they return to civilian life. The purpose is to enhance self-esteem & confidence helping people make the physical and emotional adjustments required to successfully reintegrate into civilian life.

The residential course is built around three key principles: learn from the past, live in the present, plan for your future. The key aspects of the course are: finding out more about yourself, planning your life – setting & achieving a personal goal, finding a purpose, understanding the process of change and making a personal commitment to the future.
