The LifeXchange course, as well as my interaction with the mentee, was the most exhilarating experience in my life. Above all, I learnt a lot about myself and how to manage my own behaviour under challenging circumstances.

~ Dr. Alfonso Niemand

I can honestly say that I cannot imagine my life without the course. I have learned so much and will be eternally grateful that I took the course. I believe that what I now know will benefit me on all my paths in life. I would like to thank the LifeXchange team for this. It is an excellent course and definitely a valuable asset to anyone.

~ Monique Visser

This course has equipped me and given me many tools to tackle many things in life! My whole outlook on life is calmer and I am no longer chasing the wind! My positive days are far more than the negative ones.
