I feel it is a great program and it is great that men can get together and talk over issues affecting men. I like being able to speak freely about my feeling and thoughts with the other guys and I know I am not going to be judged.
What would you tell someone whose partner is asking them to do this program and be hesitant about doing it?
As long as you are honest with yourself and not afraid of any stigma, the program will change your life. You will develop a close bond with a group of men who want to improve their relationships.
If you are hesitant about the program, we all were! It is not that you have nothing to lose; you have everything to gain-it’s a rewarding time that benefits not only you, but your family and friends. It is a life time changing time that you control if you chose to do so.

Pick up the Bloody phone! It was the best move I ever made!

This program will teach you to listen and understand your partner, your feelings and learn ownership and self control.

He has changed in so many ways – mainly he is respectful towards me and I feel safe with him. I have noticed that he listens to me more, lets me explain how I’m feeling instead of just listening to his.
He is able to deal with a little more pressure than he could before. He does not blow a fuse or erupt as quickly as he used to.
He is much more considerate and I think he may have stopped ‘playing mind’ games with me.

I believe for every woman who finds herself in my situation, which seems never ending, would appreciate their partner doing this course. Baby steps but hopefully with time it will happen.

We had tried everything before this program; my husband had seen counsellors, psychologists, doctors and nothing worked. He went to another program which was a lot closer to where we lived and was half the price but after 5 weeks he was complaining how boring it was and how he wasn’t getting anything out of it.
Your partner needs to want to do this program for themselves. Your partner needs to be committed to changing because they themselves want to change.
OMG… Just watched you on sunrise. When you mentioned 'tip-toing' around like on eggs shells, I knew there was something in this for me.
Dear Dave and Jaqui, Watching the documentary tonight really hit home for me. I was in tears when I first watched the trailer and have been every time I have showed it to friends and family, even more tears tonight through the whole film.

I can’t praise Dave & Jacqui enough after watching the show last night. I was astounded at the results having tried desperately to get through to my abusive partner who is now on community service for his anger issues and one step away from prison.
