“I attended the Penola Wellness Group ‘Stress Workshop’ in February 2018 presented by Lisa Bondarenko. This session came at a perfect time as I was in the middle of huge family relationship problems. Although I was cautious and reluctant to go in at the start, I was so glad I did. Lisa gave me ‘real’ strategies of how to cope in stressful situations. Dealing with my ‘cogs’ have made me feel mentally stronger and able to move forward.”
