‘To Thine Own Self Be True’, (Shakespeare), is the MBPC motto. MBPC does not impose any ‘one-size-fits-all’ formulas. Rather, we seek to enhance individual inherent strengths and to gently and confidentially help clients effectively manage personal obstacles which free them to present their best. Some formula-based courses may create an exciting initial hype but the information and ‘high’ may not be practical for all participants or sustainable for many in the long term. It is this willingness and ability to pay particular attention to individual needs that has satisfied clients who expect their investment to provide useful, rewarding, sustainable results.
