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 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

This course has given me the boost I needed to take control of situations in my life that were stopping me from achieving success.
