About Us

Relational Resources started off 11 years ago in a humble backroom carrying a small range of resources to support our training arm. We have since grown to be a household brand among those in the helping profession. We are a Social Enterprise and have expanded to offer a wide range of Visual-based Resources and Training for the helping profession.

 

Our business model is DIFFERENT; for never SELL to our buyers. We take time to understand our clients’ needs and work with them to acquire the resources THEY  need- be it at work or for personal use. We also suggest “possibilities”.  We make it a point to let our clients have hands on feel of the  tools/ resources before purchase. Hence it is no surprise that out business model is based on satisfied repeat clients.

 

Our physical specialty store not only allows customers to browse through our various resources such cards, books, games posters and stickers but also to seek our consultants for guidance on various methods of application. 

 

Working closely with our respected partners, we have taken our relationship further to also offer specialized training to meet our clients’ needs. These training include public workshops and customized in-house workshops. Apart from that, we also offer expert follow-up sessions.
