I found it a bit hard to connect with the rather neutral and 'grey' tone of the course to begin with. I thought it was emotionless. But it all changed when the formal sitting meditation practice was introduced. I loved this practice and it made me understand immediately the 'neutral' tone of the course. I realised that all the practices are 'forms' that we are invited to use and play with - the content can only come from our own experience. I began to really appreciate the fact that the teachers are not trying to tell us how this experience should look like. It's really like learning a skill - instead of being fed with a new system of beliefs. Since then, I have developed a daily sitting meditation practice - without the guidance anymore - and it has a big impact on my life. Thank you!

I was going through a massive depressive phase in my life and my mum told me about BeMindful, i've never really heard of mindfullness, but It was the best £30 I've spent, my mind is so much clearer and i've been able to handle myself much easier!!

I have found the course really useful and it has brought me back from the dark side. It took a lot for me to initially register and once I had I followed it through and took on board everything that was said. I found some of the course really useful. What has and is interesting is that I can do the body scan one day and achieve relaxation and then the next I just can't get my act together which I have found very disappointing. But persevere completes the mindfulness. The body scan is great! But the course has taught me that I can recognise my mood and just by carrying out some mindful breathing I can dissipate the situation most times. I will hopefully carry on and will be able to adopt the correct attitude that at the end of the day it doesn't matter so why get all worked up about something. Sorry a bit deep. Good course I've learnt a lot. Well done. Cheers John

Excellent content, support & pace and taking 4 weeks to plot a new course well worth the investment of time to make better use of my time going forward 10/10. I will recommend this to everyone

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have always been an adventurous, determined, capable and successful person and had no experience of mental health issues until a few months ago, at 46 years of age. This came out of nowhere, with no clues and no signs, just like catching a virus. And suddenly I was thrown into a world of fear, panic and turmoil. In the depths of all this I was inundated with vague pieces of information about things I could try, what may be wrong with me and at times very unhelpful and unsympathetic words from family and friends, who I realised have no understanding about mental health whatsoever. However, thank the Lord that I found you, be mindful. You were my daily guide, my sanctuary, my healer and teacher to finding a path through all the confusion, fear and dread. You brought sense and logic and clarity and I trusted you to help me heal myself. To anyone experiencing panic, fear, anxiety, depression, tiredness, lethargy, lack of motivation, social separation and numbness then you are not alone. I had all of these but this course guided me and helped me. There are just two calm, normal and easily spoken individuals gently guiding you in various exercises and explanations. Whilst it is not a live conversation, the mentors sincerity is strong and I felt they truly cared about helping me to get better. I have improved over the past few weeks and whilst the idea of weeks may seem a long time to anyone just starting off on this journey, just remember, the sooner you start, the closer you are to getting your life back. You will get better and you are not alone, we are all on this path together with you.

The course was for my husband who has mixed depression and has had depression all his adult life. He managed it by taking medication but it got worse a year ago. I found it hard to motivate him to do the course but I think it will come in to its own now that we can return to it when necessary as we did for fifty minutes yesterday. The psychiatrist suggested I buy a book on compassion but the one I found is very academic; I found that the material in Be Mindful is exactly the same as offered by courses based on compassion theories. So, yes, it is a very valuable course and I'm grateful to have found it.

easy to follow gentle instructions very good for beginners

Basic introduction to mindfulness practice in an easy to follow format. Even though having practiced mindfulness for a while I found it worthwhile and enjoyed learning slightly different (new to me) ways and analogies to describe things. Never having done any structured course in mindfulness I enjoyed having the gentle guidance from Ed and Tess through the videos and emails. Thank you

This was exactly what I needed to help lessen my anxiety and stress at the start of the pandemic when those empty shelves sent my stress levels rocketing. It is well worth the money for the introduction to helping return to that calm grounded centre. Thank you

This course was recommended by a like minded friend of long standing. He recognised in what he had achieved, something that would be of great benefit to me at this time of the CV19 Pandemic. Before I started this course about 4 weeks into lock down/Isolation, I was almost a wreck and having had to revert to medication for Anxiety and panic Attacks. I was scared rigid. I had very few strategies for dealing with the 'threats' and fears associated with what was happening. I had stopped listening or watching any news at all; I could not deal with that continuous torrent of horror. The I got the Course started and the Body Scan saved my sanity. I found the presentation so calming and kind that it made a huge difference almost immediately and has given me strength and confidence to look at things 'beyond my control' in a whole different light. Thank you, as Coldplay once almost sang, for 'fixing me'. This course may seem daunting and possibly weird at first, but once you have actually had your first mindful meal and done a Body Scan every day for a week (and more of course), you just want to have more and get more things to do. I must thank my friend for his generosity in sharing this with me four weeks ago. He too has contributed to giving me strength, understanding and a Tool bank for the rest of my life.

A very good and useful course to do - I could do it in my own time and also access the meditation mindfulness after I had finished the course. I also thought it was worth it price-wise!

I completed the course 6 weeks ago but since then, abnormally, we have been mostly in lock-down due to the Covid-19 crisis so, in these strange circumstances, it is difficult for me to fairly evaluate my reaction to the course. Nevertheless, I am glad to have taken and completed the course. I have continued to practice some of the exercises on a daily basis and I intend to refer back to the library section of the website regularly as I will make mindfulness part of daily life. I have been prone to occasional anxiety attacks throughout my adult life, so I am hoping that mindfulness will be beneficial to me in the long-term when life returns to normal.

I was a bit apprehensive doing this course as I didn’t feel it would benefit me in any way but what a surprise to find that it actually helps me to de stress and actually assist me to deal with situations I used to find tricky.

A really good course for making me take a step back and think about things differently. I like how they set activities to do each week, but it didn't feel like too much. I was feeling very overwhelmed so that helped me do everything. And there was variety and encouragement to see which types of activities you preferred and helped the most. They have nice voices. It's quite interactive, it was nice to see my scores in the assessment before, after and 1 month afterwards and see how in general my mental health has improved - admittedly I had a slight increase in depression in the month since finishing the course (but with lockdown, maybe not a surprise) although compared to before the course, I still had an overall improvement. The main thing I need to do now is keep on doing the exercises!

It is now over a year since I first started the course and I continue to feel fine. The things I learned have really helped and I still do at least one exercise per day and if I do become stressed, which is now rare I do a breathing exercise. We are now into the third week of this lock down due to the virus and I know I am handling it better than I would have done if I had not taken the course. It is the best thing I have done.

The course has been helpful and supportive and delivered in a calming manner. Incorporating mindfulness into regular routines is helpful and I also go back to the sitting meditation frequently after the course finished. It has been what I needed to help with general anxiety.
