PRAISE FOR GET REAL

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!

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.

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!

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 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.

BriannaLeadership Camp 2014
This weekend was AWESOME!!!  When I came to this camp I was stressed out a lot and wasn’t connected with my inner self very well.  I hid my true self under layers of insecurity.  Now I have ripped these layers away and have realised what sort of person I really am and that what I have been doing wasn’t really being myself.  I loved this experience in all ways the only thing I could improve on was myself.  I have been told that I’m beautiful, innocent, fun, persistent, loving, and a courageous, strong person.  I have sorted out some issues that will really help me in life.

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

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.
