Personal Development Workshops

Personal Development seminars are designed to help those suffering from anxiety, depression, or other conditions, improve their ability to cope with the daily pressures of life and work.  We know these conditions can make it challenging to deal with stress, especially at work, so we have designed a number of workshops to assist.

Our seminars teach the skills needed to help with managing stress and dealing with conflict.  You will learn valuable tactics to remove or reduce stress and deal with a variety of people and situations.

These seminars are offered at no cost to people suffering from anxiety, depression or other mental or physical disabilities.
