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.

It’s a great experience full of adventure and excitement, a place to make friends with new people and be yourself.

ElissaLeadership Camp 2014

My mum really wanted me to go to Leadership Camp and she thought it would be good for me. I wasn’t convinced, I was so scared to meet new people. I went anyway thinking it would be really bad, but I’m so happy I did decide to go because I met some amazing people. It’s nothing like school at all, they are all really nice.

FaithLeadership Camp 2014

Leadership Camp has been so fun, I’ve learnt how to deal with emotions and bad things, and how to deal with limiting beliefs.

At first I didn’t want to go to Leadership Camp but when I got there, I was so happy I went. There’s nothing like it, everybody there is so amazingly different. It also helped me in life to really get real.

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 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.

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!

SiennaLeadership Camp 2014
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!

My experiences of this weekend were truly wonderful and I had the most fun time I’ve had in a long time.  I love it, it just makes you feel so great and light and worthy and that you can do anything.  I love all of you here at Get Real you are all so true and real and I love you all!  My process was awesome it got so much stuff off me and most of it wasn’t even mine.  I went into  my power centre very well and I coped with the situation really well.  The things I realised this weekend was that I can do anything and that I am awesome also that I am successful and can do anything… it’s awesome!  I can do it, and I love these camps!
