Clients Benefit In the Following Ways:

1.      Getting their voice.  They learn how to adhere to healthy values, while still being kind and courteous towards others.  The use of boundaries.
2.      How to overcome abusers - be they emotional, physical, spiritual or mental---past or present. They begin enjoying healing from within.  This is the foundation that allows us to express our individuality, especially when encountering manipulators and emotional bullies, passive and aggressive. 
3.       Developing skills that allow clients to apply discernment while growing their network of Balcony  People.  They learn how to create an oasis of emotional support with safe people, without fear of rejection.
4.       Overcoming loneliness.  They learn how to avoid sickness of the soul such as: loneliness,  depression, self-loathing and despair, that often leads to physical illness.

       The key to living a long, dynamic, enthusiastic life is having an Attitude of Gratitude---learning how, even during tough times----the willingness to love, receive it from Balcony People, dynamically expressing ourselves in our work, connecting with the God of our understanding, allowing artistry to flow through us, being who we are without fear, while discharging toxicity locked within due to trauma and abuse, be it emotional or physical.
