Posted on June 20, 2023

The course is now available!

A course to teach everyday people how to walk alongside others in a good way.

After years of being a doctor, counsellor and psychiatrist, and by the end of my working days, I have learned that if you can find someone you trust and you know that when you share they are really listening, you will find healing.” -Dr. Shwartz
