Some of Cape Town's recent testimonials include:

"I was angry when I enrolled on this program. I felt no one understood me, my emotions and ADHD. After completing the program, I learnt I didn't actually understand myself nor my emotions. I have tools and feel more confident that I can and I will make the right decisions in the future. The knowledge learnt is invaluable. Thank you." RS

"Shelton's knowledge is amazing and it helped me in so many ways. The course and steps taken were very professional and really helped me with my anger." AS

"I found Shelton's conduct to be truly professional. His practical examples illustrated to me that the concepts presented were not just theoretical in nature. The tools and concepts made sense to me!" PD

"Brilliant programme. This has significantly enhanced my level of self-awareness. I have come to realise how important self-control is and that so much of what we do or say are within our control. Reactive behaviours without thought only provokes. This programme provided the necessary tools required to take responsibility for my own emotional wellbeing and equip me to play a role in the emotional wellbeing of others. It was well worth the investment! I would recommend this course to everyone." Coenrad

"A mind-blowing experience everyone should do. This course opened my eyes to a new way of approaching everyday experiences. I now see and handle things differently. It gave me a new perspective on anger as an emotion. Highly recommended!" GL

"I was initially reluctant to attend this anger management programme as I thought I could manage things myself. After the first session I realised how wrong I was. I enjoyed every session and my ability to control my anger was almost immediate. I will definitely recommend this programme to anyone wanting anger assistance. All the tools were extremely useful and effective." GR

"I recall I was a young boy in pain and suffering. A wasted life. Anger. Nothing helped me. I gave it my last attempt and realised I needed tools and skills. I will win - I will endure - I must.  Armed with the tenacity to let go the past and get the tools and skills I needed, these came in abundance from the anger management course headed by Shelton. Please believe me when I say he saved my life. Every human should do this course whether they think they have an anger problem or not." GS

"I found this programme to be an essential 'cure' to the unnatural and detached approach to modern life. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking clarity and lifeskills. Don't be deterred by preconceived notions about anger management.  This comes highly recommended! I never thought of myself as an angry or stressed person, even though I was triggered and reactive, I came to realise that I did not have the complete set of tools and insights to draw on at the time. I now feel somewhat enlightened that I now have these to use. Shelton's knowledge base and level of understanding is incredible." WT

"This course with Shelton was meaningful and made easy to understand, providing me with tools that will assist in managing negative and stressful situations. So far this has helped correct many of my inappropriate behaviours." WN

"Shelton was incredible, felt comfortable talking about tough issues with him. He's the best! This programme helped me gain control over my anger through useful, logical tools and resources. It has helped me change in such a positive way. Thank You." DH

"Thank you Shelton, your sessions were well prepared. This went beyond my expectation. Making that first appointment was the difficult part for me, I can only speak for myself, denial was the biggest problem. You have given me greater insight, I will practice the guidelines given to me." GVR

"Shelton is an incredible facilitator and I do not feel as though I'd have come this far without his support. The tools learned and experience gained in the programme have changed the way I interact with other people. I feel as though I am better at communication and am far better equipped to deal with the stress of daily life." MB

"The anger management course is very helpful as it targets the underlying problems in a concise manner unlike prolonged counselling". DL

"I felt very comfortable. The course is done in a very professional manner and a lot of information is given that can always be used. This can be put into practice to learn and grow from. Thank you - it was a pleasure attending the Anger and Stress Management course!". RR

"This course was better than I expected. It touched upon many fascinating subjects, allowing me to not just understand my nature better, but human nature. Many things I was learning seemed obvious as I thought "I know that", yet still I needed to be told these things. 10 out of 10!" CS

"All my expectations of the programme were surpasssed. I now feel confident that I am equipped with the necessary tools to manage stressful situations. You don't realise how much you need guidance until you actually start the programme. I recommend it! AM

Anger happens daily in most people's lives and the advantages of managing it more effectively cannot be understated" J Stewert - Cape Town

"When this was first mentioned to me I was sceptical as to its effectiveness. However, from the first session I began to look at personal interaction and conflict differently.

It has really changed the way I think and react in everyday life" Leonard

My relationship with my wife is better than ever and seems a lot more mature than before. I really have the confidence to go out and know that whatever happens I can just walk away. No fights no drama no regrets. What a change your programme has made in my life. Thank you Shelton"
