~ Specialist Programs

We are pleased to offer a number of specialist, single subject programs for those interested in developing skills and knowledge in specific areas.

Specialist programs are shorter than Path to Personal Strength and may be completed within two to three months. They are ideal for those wishing to obtain a lot of information, insight and practical skills in a short time.

The Specialist Programs are:

Path to a Loving Relationship

Relationships are the cornerstone of happiness and fulfilment and they are a basic necessity of life. We all have needs for love and belonging and it is through relationships that we have these basic human needs met.

An important type of relationship we all need is an intimate or interpersonal relationship. Whenever you meet someone on an intimate level, you form an interpersonal or romantic attachment. Understanding how such relationships begin, what makes them work and how to cope when they are deteriorating or ending is fascinating.

Your relationship with your partner has an impact on everything you do. This program delivers great insight into relationship dynamics and how to stay on the path to happy relationships.

This program will give you skills and knowledge to understand and enjoy one of the most basic and important aspects of our life. The program is about how to continually develop the relationship, perfect your communication skills, set new goals, overcome conflict and built supportive loving behaviours.
