- Understand more about who you are and discover a deeper, more meaningful experience of your life.
- Illuminate the opportunities that life offers and the paths you wish to follow.
- Increase your self-esteem and confidence.
- Acknowledge the continuing impact of past and explore how to become less affected by it.
- Create greater emotional well being.
- Learn to manage yourself and your relationships in different, more fulfilling ways.
- Explore your responses to people and situations.
- Explore how to be with trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder.
