“Those who recognize our essential qualities are the true peacebuilders: they let us know that they see the significance of our lives.

James O’Dea: Cultivating Peace: Becoming a 21st-Century Peace Ambassador
Person-centred personality theory…. And what we at this service see play through every day in the lives of the people we work with, and in our own lives… Presence and the core conditions offered in relationship invite our hearts to open and our spirits to expand.
