I found starting and completing the course very challenging. I was however in a very bad place with my mental health. It took me a bit longer to complete and I actually had to restart some weeks, as I found it difficult to concentrate. At the end of the course I felt I had improved and was a bit more in control of things. A month after completing the course I found I was slipping back into a bad place but in fairness I had done very little mindfulness. I realise now that I need to keep up my practice and that mindfulness is not a quick fix.

I started with no expectations, but I have gained the experience of how to be mindful in stressful situations and how to be kind to myself and finally, how to engage in mindful practice.

This course was just what I was looking for at a time when I was feeling particularly stressed. The flexible nature of the course, enabling me to come back when I had time and was in the right frame of mind to engage, enabled me to fit it into my weekly schedule without problem.

I found the link to this course at at time when I was feeling quite overwhelmed with everything; work, family life, Relationships, myself! My sleep was so poor; waking every night and tuning into worries about work and life. My mind was constantly on high alert, rushing to get things done so I could get the next thing done. I’m not new to the idea of Mindfulness and Meditation but have never put it into practice. This course is the most positive and useful self care I have ever done. It’s not easy, but it has had a massive impact on my mental well being. I feel like I’ve been given an insight into a practice that really does have the power to be transformative. It’s not a quick fix, but it has allowed me to see it is possible to experience things in a different way. I’m really excited about continuing and finding out more. This is not glossy and full of overwhelming choice, like many of the Apps, but you really do feel like your being taught and guided in a gentle but serious way. Excellent. I so wish I’d done this years ago, but I suppose it has just been the right time for me now. I’ve now started using the ‘Calm’ app to give me something to be doing everyday and I don’t think I could make good use of it if I hadn’t done completed this course first.

I have been suffering with sever anxiety and panic disorder for 2.5 years now, and this was a particularly bad episode, lasting for 3 months. I took the mindfulness course and now, 4 months later from when I started to feel unwell I am back on track, feeling calm, relaxed, and energised. But better still, I have learnt so many great coping mechanisms that I’m hoping, if I practice what I have learnt each day, I can focus on prevention and not worrying about when the anxiety will rise again. Thankyou so much for this course!

I've dabbled in mindfulness in the past but never really got it, but the way it was explained in the course allowed me to understand what mindfulness really is and how to practice by myself or with others.

I found the course insightful and useful. It wasn't difficult to incorporate the exercises into my routine. I found the presenters easy to listen to and to follow. The whole ethos of being kind to oneself was refreshing and something I have taken on board. Life is challenging enough without giving ourselves a hard time!

An excellent course with e mails to remind you to log in to complete each session. It is important to remember that the 4 week course is not a 'quick fix' but provides all the tools to enable one to be be prepared, recognise and deal with stressful situations when they arise. It is important to remember to incorporate the learnings into every day life to help create a more peaceful and contented lifestyle and to not just think that the 4 week course is a 'cure'. Excellent teachings and guidance and with your own determination, effort and commitment, you can achieve anything you want to.

I thought I was quite a 'chilled' person until I undertook this course. It helped me to realise that there were certain triggers in my life/work that made me feel anxious or concerned. I would urge you to stay with the course, there are exercises you might find boring/not useful/not you... however, there will be others that are just right for you.

The course has been helpful in managing some of my stress and anxiety about upcoming serious operations I have to face. The relaxation /breathing exercises have been particularly useful

This course helped me to learn more about mindfulness and about myself. Plenty of good and helpful practices which took me further to an understanding of mindfulness and meditation and how to make these a part of my daily life.

I had heard people mention Mindfulness and was interested to find out what exactly it is. This was a very good, clear, simple introduction into mindful practice and the theory behind it. The idea of being aware whilst you do a simple task, like breathing, and concentrating fully on that, letting thoughts simply drift by without engaging with them to keep you in the present moment. Highly recommended. Tess

Very well presented course. I thoroughly enjoyed all parts of the course and feel I have gained some very useful methods to help remain grounded and in touch with my own feelings, accept them and embrace them!

The course is useful but not essential. All the information in the course is freely available on the internet but its useful having it all it one place and easily accessible.

I have spent much my life reacting to situations without pausing to think. Mindfulness is the key to overcoming the difficulties some of us have, helping us to relate in a better way to events.

Thank you so much for helping me, step by step, through a very difficult and anxious time in my life. I have found the strategies really useful and they have changed my outlook on dealing with anxiety and made me more aware. I especially like the messages about being kind to yourself, not worrying if you miss a day and that your concentration might falter but that is OK because that is what the mind does.

I found this to be a supportive, well-paced course and it's very reassuring to know that I can continue to access the videos. I'll definitely do that as I find the activities calming and want to build them into daily life, no matter how demanding work is. I'm shifting to a better balance by setting aside time to look after myself.
