If you can answer “Yes” to one or more of these questions, Boundaries may be helpful for you.

  • Are you saying “Yes, that’s ok” when you really mean “Absolutely Not”

  • Do you feel guilty when you say no?

  • Do you want to have a better understanding of the internal and external factors that may be preventing you from being lovingly assertive?

  • Do you feel rejected or angry when other people say “no” to you?


Boundaries is made up of 8 consecutive weekly sessions, each session runs for 2.5 hours. The material is based on, but not limited to, the teachings of psychologists, Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend

While some time is set aside for participants to share individual boundary issues, this course is not designed to operate as a therapy group.

The aims of the course are to provide participants with:
  • A greater understanding of how to build or rebuild relationships based on healthy boundaries.

  • A safe group setting which encourages honest sharing

  • An understanding of the importance forgiveness plays in emotional well-being and knowing the difference between being a forgiving person and one that gives a person license to continue hurting you.

  • The opportunity to recognise tendencies they may have to also reject the clear boundaries others may be trying to set with them.

  • An appreciation of some of the motives that cause people to become “people-pleasers” and how to address the internal and external resistances that sabotage efforts to set healthy boundaries.

  • Skills to become “lovingly direct” in their relationships.

Each session includes;
  • View a teaching DVD

  • Ask questions

  • Teaching on how the boundary principles presented can be applied in everyday life.

  • Share the struggles and issues that participants are having setting and receiving boundaries.

  • An opportunity to get to know each other over a complimentary morning tea.


Morning tea provided each week.
