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.
Steve - Beaconsfield
He has more controlled and is less angry and sensitive to things I might say, He does not bite back a easily. His coping mechanisms are a lot better.
His eyes have begun to open and the defences that blocked communication are crumbling.
Pia - Burwood
Manages stress, anger & frustration more effectively. More open about his feelings.
He is calmer now; he still does blow off but will easily walk away and now knows how to manage himself.
Gayleen - Pakenham
He is much more considerate and I think he may have stopped ‘playing mind’ games with me.
Jodie - Essendon
The course is definately worth doing. It has helped with our relationship ad helped to make us bother happier people.
Very good, positive influence helps you evaluate yourself and your situation.
Leanne - Port Melbourne
If they are ready to do it, it is a life changing experience. The change was unbelievably fast and has continued.
Sandra - Ferntree Gully
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.
I was a bit rushed last night filling in the response forms and I feel I probably did not express myself well enough. Firstly a big thankyou to you and Coby for the whole process, but especially for the role playing, I am hopeful that you can come and get your cameras out of my house: the role playing was a very close to the bone experience.
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.
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.
The work that he does is brilliant and the way he is tackling the systemic toxic masculinity is vital work. In a primary setting we are not immune from it and see these power imbalance type behaviours being reinforced by dads and ignored or brushed over by mums.
