"This was one of the most important pieces of personal development I have ever had. The workshop enabled me to understand what assertiveness really was for me and to overcome my own personal barriers and challenges. The learnings I carried from the experience have enabled me to be far more effective in both my personal and my professional life. I would say that this workshop is an absolute must for just about anyone. Penny and Marian are strong and gentle facilitators and role models and clearly enjoyed the process as much as we did."

"A big thank you for making the Personal Journey weekend so special. I have had some very poignant moments since the weekend and am certainly getting to know myself better. I am having lots of insights at unexpected moments and am still processing what I learned. I'm very glad I decided to take the journey - and I know that what I understood there will be with me for my remaining journey."
"I received the book on Wednesday and I couldn't put it down! Marian, you are brilliant. You explain things so clearly, and everything in your book, to begin with its structure, supports what you try to convey. For example how you start a case example, then leave it, start a new one and in the next iteration return to the first one, so the reader gets to experience firsthand that metaphors do indeed 'stick' and they are relatively easy to remember. Plus you teach flexibility and 'going with whatever presents itself' at the same time. You then do that within case examples as well. Also, your book is the first that gives me some concrete handles on the matter of which question to ask next when you are developing symbols. I've had difficulty asking for locations, and now I see why that is, and how I can better tell when that information is ready to be accessed. You reminded me that 'clean' also means that whatever you do fits with and follows from the internal logic of the client, and that the timing of a clean question also determines the 'cleanliness' of that question! So now I am starting to re-read, taking the time to soak up the details and all their implications and letting it all sink in."
