This is what participants said after the “Mother’s & Daughter’s” and “My mother and I” workshops:

“Thanks for helping me grow. It was a lovely workshop, summarizing what I really need. I cannot thank you enough.”
(“ZM” – Workshop “My mother and I” / January 27/28 2018)
“Thank you for your beatitude energy, insight and workshop.”
(“SR” – Workshop “My mother and I” / January 27/28 2018)
“Think of a recurring stressful situation with your mother that is reliably stressful – even though it may have happened only once and recurs only in your mind”…
This was my starting point; the question that Ursula sent that sparked the reliving of my ‘issue with my mother ’. Once the ‘situation’ was happily lodged in my minds eye I proceeded to answer the preparative questions in readiness for the workshop: Mothers & Daughters. The answers came easily & rapidly, my perceived frustrations boldly printed & documented, ready for Ursula to ‘help me deal with them’…or so I thought!
It is never as you expect – your perceptions are never 100% accurate and never was this more true than how I felt at the end of the two days. The overall feeling at the end of the program was lightness and clarity. I found the whole experience life-changing and have referred back to my learnings time & time again since completing the two days.
I realised that my mis-conceptions about my relationship with my mother are of my own making and therefore well within my power to change. This in itself was a truly powerful realisation and has given me much to ponder on with regards other relationships I have and it has given me some skills to be able to assess my impact within these relationships and the courage & power to alter them should they be less than positive for both parties.
Ursula is a skilled coach – she is extremely sensitive to both the individual needs and the needs of the group as a whole. Through her expert guidance & knowledge she was able to steer the group to some powerfully cleansing realisations, bringing each & every one of us to a place from which we can move forward to develop our relationships with ourselves, our mothers, daughters or whomsoever is in our lives, in a way that feels right to us.
I am so grateful for the chance to meet some generous, kind & empathetic women, who in their openness throughout the workshop ensured that solutions were found and friendships forged. I can highly recommend this workshop – it is two days that will change your life for the better… something which is always worth pursuing!

I can safely say that this workshop was a God-sent. Days prior to seeing Ursula’s advert on Facebook, I had been mulling on the next step to take in working on the relationship with my mother. And when I saw the post, I knew I had to go for it. I didn’t know Ursula or the other participants but we bonded immediately. The workshop was brilliantly led and I can say it changed the way I look at my mother. I now see her with new eyes, with understanding, love and compassion. It was a very healing and transforming experience for me and I definitely recommend this workshop to anyone who is open and willing to work on this mother-daughter relationship.
(“EV” – Workshop “Mothers and Daughters” / January 28/29 2017)
“The Mother and Daughter workshop facilitated by Ursula, was the perfect container for delving deeper into core issues that were begging to be resolved between mothers and daughters in a comfortable and yet demanding way.
Ursula gently led us through this process with warmth, wisdom, gentleness, and clear direction. Every part of the weekend workshop gracefully continued building/or digging on the previous section. At the end of this amazing journey, it was very natural to let go of old stories that no longer serve, and to radically change my thinking. I am grateful for having attended this workshop, and heartily recommend it to both mothers and daughters seeking clarity and resolution in this intimate relationship that affects our lives in many more ways than we imagine. With much gratitude for this amazing experience.”
(“NB” – Workshop “Mothers and Daughters” / January 28/29 2017)
“The experiences described by the different women attending this workshop, relating their (strong, painful, difficult or demanding) relationships with their mothers – or as mothers with their daughters- made me realise the tremendous influence of our mothers on us, the way we still feel obliged to be liked and approved or understood by them, and last but not least, the way we unconsciously want to change them by wanting to change their attitude and their speech towards us.
On the second day I had that recurrent question in mind: Why do we act this way?
Ursula’s sentence: “everybody has the right to their own fate” became very striking. I left the workshop with this work in mind: to live my own life and be confident in my decisions and choices, while letting my mother live her own life and my daughters be confident in their own choices. Which doesn’t mean i have to take some distance, on the contrary i can still be very present, helpful and loving.”
