There are many reasons why the Pellin summer programme enables people to achieve
lasting, nourishing change. Among these are:-
1. Small Steps.
In Pellin work we believe that change is achieved by small steps. For all of us the
extreme difficulty of deep personal change requires the encouragement and the
motivation we get from successful small steps. Peter Fleming knows from his own
experience how hard change is to achieve. He is totally involved in supporting people
in a programme of the right small steps, the right persistence for each person. His
accuracy ensures that these small steps are safe, and that they lay the basis for further
change after the programme has ended.
2. Realistic Expectations.
The programme encourages people to work on themes in which there can be a
realistic expectation of change, for example: a couple may learn to listen and
communicate with each other more effectively, not necessarily decide whether to split
up or stay together.
3. The Pellin Method.
During the programme participants engage in individual Gestalt work, give and
receive personal feedback and learn new listening skills. This combination, though
hard work, helps people achieve rapid change.
4. The Tools of Change.
The ideas that make up the Pellin method of Contribution Training which will be
taught in the summer programme, are in the Pellin Training Manual which is
available for each participant to study before the programme begins.
5. Support Partners.
Individuals are paired up to support each other during the programme. This system
has always been part of the Pellin programme and enables people to work steadily
outside of group time, if they wish and to receive support when change becomes hard.
6. Individual Programmes.
Peter will discuss an individual programme with each participant when he or she
enrols. This gives people the best possible chance to benefit from the time in Pellin
