6 MONTH COURSE

“The 6 Month Course was everything I needed to take my personal and professional life as a counsellor, to the next level. The holistic approach and concepts handed to me are things I can use in every area of my life. Something I loved about the course, that other courses lack, is the embodied implementation and integration of the concepts and training. This really locked it all in for me, instead of just understanding it from my head I got to put concepts into action every week and therefore take them out into all areas of my life. Lisa never gives you anything you can’t handle but pushes you to your edge, which I found to be really helpful. Being in a space with other participants was very refreshing as I found that although each one of us are at different levels and have different lives, we all relate to each other’s personal difficulties and wins. This created a deep sense of belonging and connection that can be hard to come by. Overall, I would recommend anyone to this course who is ready to expand all areas of their life, inner and outer, and make lasting change and empowerment.”

“The 6 Month ‘Stabilising in the Self’ Course has deepened my ability to move towards feelings of discomfort and to see the ways in which my personal baggage plays out in my daily life. Having these realisations and the support to navigate this discomfort has lead me to a much deeper, more sincere way of expressing myself and connecting to others. Lisa’s ability to create a safe space for her participants to ‘climb the mountain’ of personal growth is second to none. Although sometimes confronting, working therapeutically in a group setting has allowed me to find greater ease in letting myself be seen and supported on this sometimes challenging but very rewarding inner journey. I would highly, highly recommend this program for anyone willing to play all-in and curious to explore their personal potential.”

“The 6 Month Course has been so freeing for me. I have gained and let go within the same breath – obviously that’s what growth is, we always gain something better every time we let go of what we don’t need, but the feeling in this course is immediate in that respect. The way Lisa has run the 6 months is nothing short of brilliant. The concepts delivered were concepts that I was so hungry for, but had never heard them in this way and now feel so grateful to be able to continually practice and speak into them. The format and the timing of how things were shared were incredible. Lisa is a true mastermind behind understanding what the human psyche needs to touch into real feeling, embracing all that is there so that it can truly resolve and free up allowing you to come home to the stabilised Self. I don’t know any other modality or course structure that could achieve this. Awareness Work and the depth of a group working as one machine has enabled something I’ve never felt before. It’s confronting, challenging, exciting, terrifying, connecting, awe inspiring, simple, pure, exposing and beyond expansive. I am creating more than I ever have, stepping into purpose with an ease I’ve never accessed before. There is more time, more love, more space. My Self is completely present and I actually like who I am for the first time in my life. It’s truly the best thing you can say yes to.”

“Deciding to join Lisa and commit to the 6 Month Course has been a life changing experience for me.

It feels like I can see clearly again. Although my outer world is full of challenges, my inner perspective has changed dramatically. Being held in such a safe and loving container, and having the consistency of weekly meetings has given me the opportunity to dive deep into myself and recognise where I have been stuck, not taking responsibility for my life. My life feels so much more aligned, the challenges feel like lessons of growth and initiations. I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity for receiving knowledge and tools for life!

I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking for real and lasting change in their life.”

“This work has been everything to me. It’s has completely changed my life. I was unhappy in my life and this dissatisfaction with myself often manifested in the negative way I treated myself and others around me. Doing this course has given me the experiences and tools to learn what it means to be truly accountable for oneself and for others. This work has a no-nonsense, practical and achievable approach that creates permanent change. I’ve tried many different ways and read many different texts on self-development and spirituality in an effort to resolve the unhappiness in my life. Some of them worked temporarily, some did not work at all. THIS IS THE ONLY WORK THAT HAS PERMANENTLY SHIFTED MY AWARENESS. I’ve learned to build a strong foundation of living in a compassionate yet strong and authentic way that will guide and inform my journey through the rest of my life. This course has not magically made my inner struggles disappear. I still struggle. But I now know who and what I’m struggling for, and that is everything to me.

Having a group of like-minded individuals around me that not only support me but also provide an opportunity for me to support them is both a privilege and a gift. Being there for others whole having others be there for me, to witness others struggles and to be witnessed in my own struggles is most certainly a daunting, nerve-wracking experience. But it has taught me to run into struggle and not away from it. When we do this, beautiful things happen. Life changes here.”

“When I set the intentions and goals at the start of the course, trying to understand what I wanted to achieve, I would have never imagined that in six months my life would have changed forever. This course offered me the possibility of working with my shadows in a supported environment with the help of Lisa, Will and the rest of the participants, who provided a safe space to do so. Shadow work is not easy work, but it arrived in a decisive moment in my life, when I could not ignore anymore what my true Self was screaming, hidden underneath layers and layers of dysfunction, trauma, codependence and self doubt. Being held in such a safe therapeutic environment, allowed me to look into my own dysfunctions and shadows in order to dismantle poisonous belief systems through compassion and loving kindness. Dismantling such systems and working with your own shadow can feel very destabilising, but I had to follow my intuitions to understand that what is painful sometimes is necessary to create anew. Although I am still integrating what I’ve learned and I am in a crucial stage of transformation, exiting my cocoon and entering what I feel it is a third life, I could have never got here without this course. This incredible process is allowing me to let go of self doubt and codependence, making space for something new, scary and beautiful: the true power of the Self, and the possibility to heal not just for my own well being but with the intention of bringing into the world my talents and services.”

“I have just completed the 6 month stabilising in the Self course.  I almost didn’t commit to the course as I thought I didn’t need to do it, oh boy was I wrong. I have stepped into a whole new way of being vulnerable, of expressing how I feel, of articulating what is on my mind or what wisdom needs to be shared in the moment or to myself.

I have deeply worked through layers that were massive blocks and outside my awareness that have now allowed me to return to the deep sensitive nature that is natural to me, the deep ability to feel and hold space for others.

I have found great strength, courage and power in facing challenges of adversity. This course has provided me with the essential steps and tools to move into a deeper way of being, of service to others and Self. This 6 month course has been phenomenal, it is fully embodied and extremely supportive and stable. Lisa and Will are amazing facilitators and I wouldn’t be where I am today without their loving and kind support.

I highly recommend this Course to anyone who was seeking permanent change and growth that they can carry forward in their life.”

“Before commencing in the 6-month ‘Stabilising in the Self’ course I was feeling incredibly lost and unsteady. It’s safe to say that I was feeling somewhat numb and unhappy within my what would seem very happy life. I was seeking direction, guidance and support to help me navigate the difficult, heavy, and on some days very dark feelings that I was experiencing. Having always held a positive and optimistic outlook on life it was disturbing to me that I was having such feelings of helplessness, without any clear direction of how to shift this.

Having now completed the 6 month ‘Stabilising in the Self’ course, my life has changed beyond what I had expected. The skills and concepts that I have learnt have not only helped me feel completely stable within myself, but have strengthened my Self-love, Self-confidence, and Self-knowing to a place I never thought I’d get to.

The 6 month ‘Stabilising in the Self’ course has quite literally saved my life. What I have learnt will remain in my practice forever as I continue to navigate life. I’ve never believed that we as humans should navigate life alone. This course has provided the learnings and guidance that every single human should have access to. I can’t thank Lisa and Will enough for facilitating such a deep and transformative program. I am forever grateful.”

They hold a space that is grounded, truthful and full of love. Every little detail rings true, Thought about and executed with the finest precision.

Each week- A portal of awareness, friendship, healing, growth, connection, truth and purpose were present.
I am so deeply grateful for this experience. And I will absolutely be sure to join in another 6month course.”

“My experience in this course has been one that I will forever hold close to my heart. I will never be the same again. Steadily, Lisa (and Will!) have held us in a safe and sacred space for the past 6 months.

Lisa has a high level of integrity and her commitment to seeing and revealing the best in everyone is a driving force of this work. Lisa’s wisdom and work is of a mastery level and it has been an honour to learn from such a courageous, intelligent and graceful guide. Will, assisting Lisa, brought consistent support and unique insight to my journey that allowed me to see what I needed to see at each turn.

I have felt myself stretch and change and I now know myself at a much deeper level now.

I have gained a trust in my own wisdom, in knowing how to navigate my life from a place of truth, a place of understanding and steadiness.

During the course I moved a huge amount of dysfunctional patterning that has been holding me back for many years, maybe my whole life. I have learned to see the relationships in my world and my relationship to all of life from a much greater perspective, depth and understanding. I have developed the ability to be guided from within whilst also learning from and trusting the lessons that life brings my way.

I am now a more whole version of myself who can accept and face challenges with more ease and acceptance. I can speak my truth, navigate conflict with more resilience and less reactivity. I am a better person because of this course. Forever grateful”

“Throughout the course I have always felt challenged beyond my comfort zone. I think the biggest part of it, was having the honest and aware support of Lisa and Will who I felt I could genuinely bring difficulties to and they will provide a way of navigating it and seeing it with the eyes of an outside observer. This constant space of accountability was always pushing me to see my own challenging patterns for what they are and to have the hope that there is a space where it can be overcome and turned into strengths. Holding this higher awareness is probably the greatest aspect of the course, a place that believes in the goodness of human nature and our ability to overcome our inner obstacles as well as be a good force for others. I will use what I gained from the course and sharing with others their honesty and challenges to keep practicing and pursuing my journey and sense of purpose in the world. “

“My experience with the Awareness work 6 month course stabilising in the self has been beneficial in many ways. It has helped me with understand myself and identify my feelings much better. The course allowed me to explore these difficulties both intellectually and emotionally in a safe container where I could learn to express what I was experiencing. The concepts that we worked with are very powerful and are explored with great depth, allowing for many breakthroughs in understanding the difficulties of individuals and humanity. I found that the concepts flow together very well and each concept builds upon the last throughout the course creating a very powerful momentum. All of this and the chance to learn and hold space for others makes this course one of the most rewarding things that I have done.”

Awareness Work has helped me to know my true Self. The title is perfect because I do feel Stabilised in the Self. I feel like the trunk of a sturdy old tree. I have always known, felt  an inner strength, always seen my light shining although now the difference is that I embody this light. This knowing has gone from my head into my body & heart. Following the guidance of the Self was a key concept. Being able to check in with Self, and believe, trust her answers creates a stability I have found and continue to tap into each moment. I see so much clearer everything going on around me. I can listen to myself and others more fully. The baggage concept of course was AMAZING to learn in a way that is clear and life changing. Once I could see baggage as baggage in myself , and then in others…wow…major shift. It really is the key… or one of them. Holding boundaries and stepping away from co-dependent relationships with ease and love. I have gained a visceral level of knowing…To say what I want to say, not what others want to hear. I feel strong, centred, free to explore, to be me in the true Self. Many large significant puzzle pieces which have been floating around on the table have been put into place.

“It is hard to put such a life changing experience into words. This course was not only about what I gained, but more importantly what I let go. I see myself for who I am for the first time in my life. And through seeing myself I see others for they truly are. The deep beautiful Self shines through.
This course has set me free. It’s given me a new look on life and a deeper understanding of myself. It’s allowed me to become aware of so much negative energy that had become normal to me. Breaking the shackles of my own mind and stepping into a new place of love, acceptance and understanding. It’s challenged me, but supported me at every slip on the way up. This has been the most incredible journey of my life. The synchronicities, the lessons, the energy and the support. It makes sense of all other journeys thus far and given me a skill set to navigate into the  future. This has truly changed who I am as a person and how I view the world. A new understanding for what is possible in life.”

“During the 6 month course I got to know myself more fully and deeply.

I was held in a safe container that allowed me to settle in and listen to what was going on inside for me. That alone allowed me to open up, explore, feel into, share and express what is true for me.

I gained confidence, an unwavering voice, a deep connection to Self, new awareness and appreciation for me and everyone around me.

I explored the depths of my internal ocean with the new learning of concepts we navigated through — together. The support from Lisa and Will, the Group and from my partner Annie allowed me to experience the full gamut of emotions whilst feeling deeply supported.

I now know how to stand in my truth, I know the importance of feeling into my feelings, I have a stronger sense of worthiness and know the true meaning of discernment – all of which I will carry into a new richness of life.”

“In the holistic therapeutic model we regard inner
work and the processing of old emotion and
dysfunctional behaviours as a necessary and vital stage
of development. If you can dedicate time to doing this
inner work (preferably with a trusted guide), you will
enter into a stability and maturity that is totally
inaccessible to those who have not completed this
stage of development.The later stages of mature development centre around
your innate and deeply fulfilling contribution to
humanity.”
