“Nothing can prevent your picture from coming into concrete form except the same power which gave it 
birth – yourself.”
Genevieve Behrend (1881-1960)

Personal Prayer

In my heart, I have let go of the past,
I have forgiven myself for my mistakes,
And forgiven others for theirs.
I sit on the seat of self-respect,
Surrounded by beauty and serenity.
I depend on no-one for my well-being.
I am free of the need for others, I am self-sufficient.
Happiness and joy radiate from the innermost part of my being.
I need no external approval,
Because I know I am wonderful as I am,
A shining jewel, a miracle of recovery,
Beloved by God.
I am a powerhouse of peace.
I take every event just as it comes,
With love and detachment,
Stable as a Buddha, carefree as a well loved child.
Laughter permeates my thoughts like a clear brook,
Pealing its joyful babble into my heart.
It has washed away the worries of my life.
Any block to progress has been removed:
Progress is constant, fast, permanent in its effects.
I notice that my inner child has been healed.
Giving enriches me.
I know how special and good I am:
I have integrated this truth about me into my life.
I do not cause anyone pain or sorrow.
I know how to respect and how to understand everyone.
I relate to everyone with love.
All my relationships are harmonious.
I feel no anger.
I am wise beyond my wildest dreams.
My life is exactly as I wish it to be:
Happy, peaceful, creative, prosperous, fulfilling, positive, helpful to others, useful.
Every moment is filled with precious and clear purpose.
I am beloved.
I live every moment in a spirit of forgiveness and gratitude.
Jocelyne Ansorge

“You create your own universe as you go along.”
Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

I contacted Reach (recommended by a friend) initially to get help with bereavement. I discovered that my responses to this bereavement highlighted wider personal difficulties that have affected my life since childhood. Although I was aware of these factors, I was having difficulty in moving forward emotionally and in my response to life in general. I wanted to commit myself to a broader programme of self-discovery and personal development. Although in a sense fearful of what I might discover I started on fortnightly sessions with my counsellor who was supportive, empathic, knowledgeable and non-judgmental. The sessions were flexible to meet my needs in a holistic way – but they were also challenging and difficult at times. They were clearly structured to support me on the journey I had undertaken. I was assured of safety and confidentiality.
Supporting tapes, readings and other strategies were suggested and these encouraged me to build in changes to the ways I viewed and conducted my life. I am I hope stronger, calmer, more confident and positive as a consequence. I feel a greater sense of balance and have more resources to help me ‘reach’ my potential. Thank you for your sensitivity and support.

“A person who sets his or her mind on the dark side of life, who lives over and over the misfortunes and disappointments of the past, prays for similar misfortunes and disappointments in the future. If you will see nothing but ill luck in the future, you are praying for such ill luck and will surely get it.”
Prentice Mulford (1834-1891)

Personal Prayer: When everything around me seems to go wrong

I am focused and clear in all that I do
I enjoy each day and the new challenges it brings
I am relaxed, happy and enjoy each day, both at work and at home
I am well respected and appreciated in all that I do
I enjoy a good work/life balance
The universe looks after me and helps me deal with all challenges
I have no fear of the present or the future
I am surrounded by beautiful things and wonderful people
My life is wonderful and infinitely rewarding
Gillian Wells

“I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy ….. this affirmation incorporates every single thing any human could want and will bring harmonious conditions to all things. The reason for this is the affirmation is in strict accordance with the truth and when truth appears every form of error or discord must necessarily disappear.”
Charles Haanel (1866-1949)

Easton Hamilton and the work of Reach aided me through the most challenging time of my life. It helped me regain my power, my faith in myself and reminded me to be the best I can be. Thank you for being my friend, my guide, my heaven-sent angel, Easton. From the beginning there was something about you that made me trust you completely. I am forever in your debt.
Lucinda Drayton. Bliss. Singer, Song Writer

“Man ultimately becomes what he thinks of himself.”

Dr Martin Luther King Jr (1926-1968)

Personal Prayer
Mother/Father God of this universe and beyond, give me the discipline to recognise my greatness and to learn from my weaknesses. Re-connect me with the ocean and unconditional love, knowledge, wisdom and truth that exist within me. Remind me that difference only exists in the mind and my neighbour is my brother/sister, I will learn to love them as I do myself. I appreciate my life experiences; I am grateful for my teachers who have been forgiving with my failings but equally patient and responsible for my growth. I thank you for helping me on my journey to endeavour to achieve my innermost wish – a desire to become whole.

Contributions Page introduction....

Reach began its unique way of working in 1990. Since that time we have touched literally thousands of people’s lives through our individual work, work with couples, families, groups and countless workshops. We have produced in that time 100s of written resources and over 30 audio and visual recordings and these have travelled across the world, largely driven by personal recommendation. They have also brought immeasurable change to many. On these pages is a snap-shot of what people have thought, felt and gained from their therapeutic contact with us via the various media we offer.

Also included on this page are some inspirational thoughts and writings from those clients, borne of their personal journeys with Reach.  We've also added insightful quotes from some of the great minds both past and present.

We hope you too will be inspired....
