A Fresh Start

"Thanks for all your help in motivating me and organising me to get this done - I doubt it would have been finished … without your input and support.
Much to report, I'm really buzzing for the first time in years."

Building a Team with a Vision

"Jerry ... designed a very good programme (at a very reasonable price). The results were immediate and amazingly effective."

"He's really helped me to re-think all sorts of things, and has increased my confidence and improved my self-perception no end… I've still got a way to go, but I'm on the right path!"

After a number of years ministering in a demanding parish, a priest was looking for ways to approach the final years of her ministry there in a positive and creative manner.
