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.

Level one taught me what to look out for. It gave me new tools to recognize the affect of my behaviour on others.
I would say if you really love her/them then ask yourself: Do you want to change? Do you want to be respected by your family? You might think you are respected but like I found they were scared to say otherwise. I would also say, you might think you are a great couple.
Pick up the Bloody phone! It was the best move I ever made!

What did you like most about this program? I like the change I am starting to see in myself and my time with my wife. I want to learn how to communicate better with my whole family to enjoy them more (and vice versa).

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.

This course requires commitment from any person wanting to do it. It requires commitment to change.
Educational for abusive people make them accountable for their actions and what they have to do if they ant a better quality of life.
My partner has never been physically abusive and I have never feared for my safety. However I was not happy with our relationship.
Congratulations! I have been feeling very depressed about the recent coverage of FV and the constant shaming of men. With no exploration of their (our/my) humanity, their lives, or discussion about whether they can be helped, let alone any thought of whether we actually should help these men, or how.
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.
