The shock of discovering you have a chronic disease is indescribable. Jenny and Vivienne’s empathy, understanding and positivity enabled me to move from physical work to an office environment.
My life may be different but there is no price you can put on help that gives you, although different a happy and fulfilled life. Thank you both immensely.
“The tools that I learnt in the K.E.A.P. course have enabled me to be ready to and to work more effectively with a psychologist that my GP has referred me to. I cannot believe the changes in myself and I am so grateful to you both for helping me along my journey and continuing to help me with further support. The online support group is a great help and I very much enjoyed seeing how the Wellness support group operates”.
”Beautiful ladies and such a positive environment. Just being in the room felt healing- thank you”
“I thoroughly enjoyed your course today, it was much more than I expected and would recommend it to anyone that is grieving, like me or who suffers with anxiety and panic attacks like me, looking forward to some strategies next week. I will recommend LEAP SA to as many as possible. Great job girls”
“Thank you for yesterday ladies! After the course I felt fatigued (had walked in the morning also) but I was feeling so positive, that when I lay down to rest, I could not stay there. I had a very productive and cheerful afternoon. My first in a while!”

Keep up the good work…. this course ( K.E.A.P. Knowing Emotional and Physical Pain) has helped me face things I would never have thought of. Well done Jenny and Vivienne, nice to meet you both.
This course (K.E.A.P.) has got me out of the house, I have not wanted to get out of the house for three years.
“I have met the most wonderful / passionate / committed / respectful trainers who’s passion & self confidence oozes from them to make it all very contagious. Not only the trainers, but the wonderful volunteers who have given their time to support & encourage us through this course. To see & hear some of their troubles & to see how they confident they are is truly inspiring.I can take from this course a lot more about self management of chronic disease & each person’s journey is unique no two will be the same. It has given me better self confidence & a much clearer understanding of the complexity of chronic disease and the management of it”

It makes me feel worthy and in return I will strive to do the same as I share my experience with others”
“As the Programme progressed, Jenny and Vivienne provided role modelling, guidance and encouragement that made me realise that I should embrace this as a wonderful new learning opportunity, one that would enable me to broaden my skills in a way that would prove very meaningful to me and would be consistent with my personal values. Jenny and Vivienne have been an inspiration to me. It is my hope that I will be able to facilitate with the passion, commitment and skills that they have demonstrated”

Jenny and Viv, just wanted to say a big thank you for a wonderful session. You really are thoughtful and inspirational people and it is no wonder that you are thought of so highly. We can see how much you both believe in what you are delivering and I know that LEAP will go from strength to strength with you both at the helm.

Jenny and Viv, thank you for sending out my certificate and a HUGE thank you for showing me how to earn it, who would have thought that two of the best senses of humour could play such a big part in helping the people who want to help others achieve the ability to do so. I was very pleased to hear of your decision to start your own business because having seen and felt the dynamic duo in action, you are made for it and can’t fail. (A LEAP into the unknown). Congratulations on your decision
