Welcome To The December Issue Of Our PALS Programme Blog

Another First For PALS Programme!

On the 8th December we delivered our first PALS Programme Presentation for the Women In Business section of Meath Local Enterprise Office, in Navan, Co Meath.

This presentation focused on Creating Positive Communication in Business and was a great success with all in attendance. The group really embraced the positive and assertive ethos of PALS and participated really well during the presentation. It was great to get positive feedback the following day from some of the ladies who attended the event.

One lady even dedicated her blog to our PALS Programme Presentation as she felt so motivated after the presentation. You can read Cat’s blog at

One to One PALS Programme for Teenagers and Young Adults

Our PALS one to one programme is growing every week. We are delivering PALS to teenagers and young adults in weekly or fortnightly sessions. These sessions are tailored to the individual based on their own needs which include time management, positive communication, self confidence and acceptance. The programme can be delivered in 3, 6 or 9 sessions initially with a view to continuing with monthly sessions to help stay on track. The benefits seen by both parents and students are huge and really help bring a sense of understanding about life and how wonderful it really is. All of our sessions are student focused and relevant to their lives as teenagers and young adults. A few small changes can make an enormous difference and bring about positive impact in school, college andhome life.


We are continuing with our expansion of PALS into more areas and look forward to bringing news to you in the new year with our January blog.
