Course Outline

Through self-reflection, personal development is looking inward and focusing on ways to embrace your true self and create an authentic and fuller life firmly centred around your needs and aspirations. 

The 6-week personal development course will provide a safe and supporting space for you to connect, explore, and affirm your true identity and your needs. The course has been designed to increase your self-awareness, your self-esteem, your self-love, and your interpersonal skills with the view for you to make meaning amidst challenges, return to wholeness, and reclaim the life that has always been meant for you. The following themes are explored during the course:

  • Self-awareness - Thinking ABOUT Yourself
  • Health and Wellness - Taking CARE of Yourself
  • Assertiveness - Thinking FOR Yourself
  • Mind and Body Connection
  • Sexuality, Gender, and Relationship Diversity
  • Sex, Connection, and Relationship
  • Belonging - Being part of a Community
