Empowering Jewish Single Women
Effective Relationship Program

Facilitated by Brenda Heideman, psychologist

8 week program
7.30 - 10 PM
Commencing 26 October 2016
131-133 Hawthorn Road, Caulfield
Cost: $50 for the 8-week program

Are you single? Do you get stuck in relationships that go nowhere? Does intimacy scare you?

In this eight-week program you will learn how to take risks in relationships, and how to approach new interactions in positive ways so that the same unhealthy relationship style is not repeated in different relationships. At the end of the program you will have a deeper understanding of yourself and have more confidence and skills to express your needs towards creating more intimate relationships.

For more information on this life-changing program please contact NCJWA (Vic) CEO Lee Ann Basser at 9044 5402.

Places are limited.
