“Definitely an essential workshop for TEACHERS and PARENTS as well as other INDIVIDUALS to attend if they are serious about LISTENING and being the change they wish to see.
Intervention and Counselling. Learn better counselling techniques.
Mikhail Rajap, Head Coach is fully competent and emotionally intelligent, he understands the needs within our communities.
It's an intense intervention and counselling programme, however very manageable. Be open to sharing. Be open to learning. Be open to giving and receiving. Small groups. Interactive. Reflective. Essential.
I was very grateful that I could immediately use what I've learned over two days. I'm using it in my personal life as well as in my professional life. Mikhail Rajap is an ABSOLUTE PROFESSIONAL. I would recommend his services to my closest friends and family. Now, knowing the value of what I've gained, I feel a little embarrassed for paying a ridiculously low amount for the training programme.
Call Dimensions SA today! You deserve this. The people whom you care for deserve this intervention. Light up your community. Be the light.”
