PRAISE FOR GET REAL
Coming to Get Real has changed my life. The first time I came to these camps I was a troubled child and learning these tools has helped me change the way I see things and act. It has helped me stand up for who I am. It is because of Tam and Get Real that I am like I am today…. It wasn’t them that changed me, but it allowed me to change myself.
I thought the Get Real weekend was really awesome, I learned a lot about the tools and the process and I really learned how to relax. I thought that all the kids and the coaches were really awesome and supportive. I would really love to come to another Get Real, it really boosted my confidence and made me realise there are others like me.
It’s a great experience full of adventure and excitement, a place to make friends with new people and be yourself.
The Get Real experience has been an awesome, even though it was my first time I still felt like I fit in with all the other participants. For all those struggling with emotional dilemmas I highly recommend attending.
The weekend has made me feel free and safe with everyone I meet. The coaches are such good examples and have helped me set goals for my life.
My experience here has been great! I have really enjoyed it. It’s something new and I’m definitely coming back!! ☺ My process was my first and it was really intense. It covered something I thought wasn’t an issue anymore… but it obviously was. I’ve realised a lot about myself. There was a lot of self pity and self judgement and negativity towards myself and the way I think about myself it was SO surreal! I am truly inspired and will most definitely continue on forever and ever and ever! For sure!
I think that Get Real is great for kids, teens and adults. I felt like I could trust everyone and they would keep everything confidential. I loved letting my emotions go by painting, drawing and talking. In Get Real you make lots of friends – We had a lot of fun!
Before Get Real I was self harming and hating life. I now have the realisation that I am better than that. I’m not just my body, I am not my thoughts. I have Tam to thank, she does everything gracefully and with love.
I loved the weekend! It gave me the chance to make friends with people from another country and also I finally got to find the real me. My favourite part about it was the campfire night because it was cool to burn away all the fake beliefs the group had… And we got to roast marshmellows! ☺ Doing the processes with the other teenagers was really good because it gives you help and guidance, but you feel like you are helping and motivating your partner. Hearing all the positive comments people gave me was so inspiring and it gave me the self confidence I needed. All the coaches and Tamsyn were all beautiful people that helped me through any difficulties I faced. I love you guys ☺ Thank you so much.
Get Real has been a blessing for me. It has been an experience that has enlightened me about emotions, thoughts and actions. I am now a better person and I am ready to face the world with any challenge because I know that I will be able to face it. All because of Tam, Sarah, Brett, Dex and Angel. It has been a gift for me and an experience that I will keep in my heart.
