PRAISE FOR GET REAL
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!
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!
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.
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 loved Get Real! It was a great experience for me and it helped me a lot with stress and fears. Get Real was a great change in my life. It was really fun, and a weekend to remember.
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.
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.
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’m so glad I came to the Get Real camp. I learned how to deal with my emotions really well. It was very fun, thank-you.
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.
