Testimonials

‘My son and I attended the Building Bridges program in 2010. We learned a lot about ourselves and each other in a very relaxed, supportive environment. Our experienced facilitators Andy and Stephen ensured that the whole group benefited from the experience. We left with several new friends and several useful tools and techniques to help us. I would gladly recommend the program to anyone looking to improve their relationship with a teenage boy in their life.’ ~ Scott L

Andy and Stephen thank you for a wonderful experience for Joshua and I. The program has allowed us to build and nurture our relationship and we have had and continue to have a lot of fun along the way. Can’t wait for the next chapter in this Journey. ~ Rod B

Thank you Andy & Stephen for your time and effort in the program my son and I enrolled in. It was confronting, which was good, fun which I hadn’t expected and well worthwhile. Happy to recommend this to anyone who’s prepared to invest a few hours in their relationship with their son! ~ Scott S

My son and I attended a “Building Bridges” course in 2010. I was apprehensive at the time as to what I would “actually get out of it”. What it made me realise is that there are different ways to develop and strengthen the bond between father and son, and more importantly allow both of us to see, that although we have our roles in life, we are able to see each other in a different light, and communicate in different ways.

The course initially was more to help the process for my son to develop into an adolescent boy, but in the end I also felt that the course allowed me to develop. I would have no hesitation in suggesting that this course allows for the strengthening of the bond between the father and son. ~ Sam V

My 13 yr old son and I attended the Building Bridges program run by Powerhouse Programs. We expected the program to help define the foundation for our relationship as we transition from a young son / father relationship to a teenage son / father relationship.  We went not knowing what to expect and looking back are grateful that we did the program.  It put us in an environment where we heard firsthand the issues facing other fathers and sons and saw that our relationship and issues were not dis-similar to others.

We benefited from hearing of the strategies adopted by others in dealing with the transition from a young doting son to a teenager wanting to be independent but still needing guidance.  It made us appreciative of the relationship we have and value the qualities of each other.  We explored our histories and could see patterns in grandfather/father/son relationships throughout the group.  This enabled us to reaffirm the things we had vowed to do differently and act to change where necessary.

At a time when there are so many instances where the fabric of our relationship is strained through this transitional period, the learning of the course gave us another stitch to help hold our relationship together.

We are grateful for having participated in the course and I look forward to doing it again with my younger son in due course.  ~ Jason G
