"As a person lacking in confidence this has made a huge difference in public speaking and communicating with a group."

"Before I started LifeSkills I couldn’t even talk to a new person without feeling uncomfortable, which isn’t good for job searching. But, thanks to LifeSkills, I can walk into places and hand over my CV without having a panic attack."
