Online Gathering: Solution Focused Experiential Group

You are invited to see yourself differently and stay positive!
Many of us are going through a challenging time. A time when we can’t make most of the decisions, we would like to and have to keep aside most that we already made. In these uncertain times, let us come together to make the best of it, that we can.
What can you expect? 
It is an informal online gathering rather than a talk or training. In the group meeting, the facilitator helps the participants to make attempts to do self-reflection to expand awareness of their resources, strengths,s and best hopes about their desired future.
