It wasn’t long after starting on the programme that I found myself leaving home with newfound confidence to work on a tropical island

I joined the McGuire Programme back in 2004 at the age of 19 and can easily say it has been one of the best choices I have ever made in my life.

I arrived at my first course feeling a large amount of scepticism about whether it would work for me but I knew there was only one way to find out: by giving it a go.

I came from a place of being filled with immense fear and anxiety when speaking to other people and would even have to rely on others to make phone calls for me and even order my own food when out at restaurants or shops. It wasn’t long after starting on the programme that I found myself leaving home with newfound confidence to work on a tropical island, then travelling overseas solo where I had to rely on myself to organise everything… and I loved it!

I have now worked in customer service roles which is something I thought I would never do and I’m also a coach and course instructor in the McGuire Programme which I absolutely love. I look forward to meeting you on a McGuire course in the near future.
