Seasons Greeting and Office hours

Wow! Its December already, where did this year go? In my experience, the older we get, the quicker time seems to pass us by. As time goes by, there are increasing distractions competing for our attention. We are taking some time over Christmas and New Years for rest and self reflection. We hope to include this throughout our scheduled next year.
Thanking you for all your support throughout the year and being part of your journeys. Wishing you all the best over the Christmas break and a safe and happy New Year.
Our office will be closed from Monday 23 December 2019 and will re-open on Monday 6 January 2020.
Brad Seeto, Elaine Chim and the Bramelle Partners Team.
