PRAISE FOR GET REAL

Originally I was sceptical about how Get Real would effect me.  But after attending the weekend I met some amazing people who I hope will remain my life-long friends.  I feel the weekend has given me an excellent feeling of self-worth and increased self-esteem, as I had to cope with issues and environments significantly outside the boundaries of my comfort zone.  Thank you so much for this amazing experience which I will carry with me for my whole life!

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.

What I got out of Get Real was to let your emotions be free. Don’t bottle them up because you will slowly crumble from the pressure. Let them be free, trust me you will feel a lot better.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.

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.
