The SEEK-GSP course healed me from post traumatic stress and empowered me to identify mental health disorders in my loved ones, litigants, juveniles delinquents and counsel them adequately.

Diomela Emerencia

Chief of Nursing Service, Yaounde General Hospital.

Training with SEEK GSP, has empowered me with good communication skills especially with my children in the house. I no longer threaten them by telling them I will report them to their father, but using good counselling skills, I’ve noticed a positive change in their behaviour these days .
