Feedback from the live webinar

"This was hugely helpful - my daughter and I have learnt so much, and it's made a lot of sense of numerous things that have been happening for her – really can't thank you enough for making this information available."

"Gareth was brilliant, so easy to listen to and learn from – I work with students and see what he's describing all the time, I wish my colleagues had heard this"

"Please thank everyone involved with the human givens approach for making coherent sense of what was, and still is for many people, a right old muddle – it brings all the relevant information about what it is to be human together into a simple whole that enables us to see ourselves and get ourselves together. In an insane age it provides more than a glimmer of human hope."

"Really useful, so much information was covered – lots of great ideas to try - loved the questions from other attendees, they brought out even more valuable information from Gareth's experience."

"I've learnt masses, everything was very clearly explained, thank you."
