Bernard Percy

Bernard is an author, educator and lecturer. He has traveled the world delivering seminars, lectures, workshops and individual consultations to thousands upon thousands of people focusing on education, career choices, parenting and creating ideal personal relationships. Among his books are Help Your Child In School; How To Grow A Child – A Child’s Advice To Parents; and Moments Of Astonishment – On Becoming A Better Dad. The following comment is typical of the responses he gets from his deliveries:

Bernard is a revelation! A teacher, childhood educator and parent ‘enlightener” he is a big man, with a very big heart. He does not speak about raising kids from some abstract academic point of view. You’ll find no “pyschobabble” in his seminars. Just heart-warming stories from a man who is clearly loved and adored by his own children. His methods are simple and endearing, empowering both the parent and the child with their own point of view. You’ll find yourself going “of course” again and again as you listen to him speak, for the answers he unveils to “common childhood problems” are so obvious, you wonder why you didn’t think of them yourself. But when you are busy with work and family issues, it is easy to forget the fundamentals. Bernard brings them back to you with memorable ease. A few hours spent with him is worth a lifetime of experience. If you get a chance to see him, cancel everything and take it, you and your kids will not regret it!

Abby Juneau

Abby Juneau is a highly-qualified marriage counselor and life coach who has lived and worked in the Tampa Bay area for the past 15 years. She is married and has two lovely girls, Melissa and Sondra, both of whom have also become trained as professional counselors.

She possesses a strong drive to help people live happier and fuller lives. She has helped others for over 25 years, counseling tens of thousands of hours and is trusted by notable celebrities. She has helped thousands of individuals improve their relationships, recover from emotional trauma, overcome drugs and alcohol, eliminate mental barriers to success and achieve confidence in themselves and their future.

These are  a few of the fabulous things that her clients have to say about working with her:

“I had spent 25 years diligently pursuing 12 step programs. In addition, I took up various ‘therapies’ throughout that time and while I benefited, with each I came to a point where I was no longer making progress. And so many of the old, troubling, counter-productive characteristics remained, although they had to a certain extent moderated. A good friend and business associate introduced me to Abby. Her care and concern for me was, and is, astonishing.

“I began working with Abby. In the second week of this I made more progress than I had in the previous decade!

“Abby radiates joy from a place of centeredness. Her presence is an inspiration to me. And I know from the successes that I have experienced already, that I can have this joy if I continue to work with her. What can I say? Abby is an incredible human being. Knowing her has changed my life.” – PG

“I really enjoyed my counselling. I got to talk about and handle any areas I had attention on. Now I feel really good about being a mom!
“I used to be terrified of going through labor, but I had wanted to be a mom my whole life. After getting my counselling I wasn’t scared and I even felt prepared for it. My labor was not the easiest, to put it lightly, and my biggest fear even came up, and I made it through without any upset. I now have an AMAZING daughter that was worth every moment of it all! Thank you Abby for assisting me in attaining one of my lifetime goals!” – LL

“It has been a lifetime that I have had these feelings of not feeling worthy or competent. Reading, writing, spelling, learning and understanding materials has always been a HUGE struggle!!! I would rather die than read aloud or in front of others! Abby worked with me and found the key to unlock this lifetime’s anxiety. We worked to the point that it all started to lighten and start to fall away… I am very excited by the idea that this burden can be lifted off, if not just lightened. I am looking forward to seeing how this will change the way I venture into life. There is much work ahead for me and I want and need to be as strong as I can personally to accomplish my business and life goal. This sure feels like a solid foundation has been laid for this next segment in the journey of my life! – VC
