I have found this course to be immensely helpful. The course was easy to follow and a pleasure to complete. I appreciated the communication via email, it really was a gentle reminder and a motivator to keep moving forward. I actually cried when the course finished! I felt so sad that it was over. Have recommended it to several friends.
I am very grateful for this course. Well presented and easy to follow. I feel like I've started to work on something that every day is helping my life more enjoyable.
Thank you for this course.
I have found the theoretical and practical aspects of the course most useful in all aspects.
The pace of the course and the way in which it is structured is very good and easy to follow.
Thank you so much for helping me to realize how much stress is impacting on me physically, mentally and emotionally. Having just finished the course I know I have accomplished something that enables me to nurture/be kind to myself, by learning to put some boundaries in place. The course has helped me to be more reflective and less reactive. I know it is early days but I feel confident that I have started something that can really help make my life better in the future if I can just keep practicing even a small amount as often as I can.
I just feel so much better thinking like the tortoise and not the hare - still getting there in the end but actually having a bit more time to enjoy the journey! Thank you for giving me the map!
I would recommend this course to anyone suffering from anxiety or depression, even if they have already read or listened to the works of Jon Kabat-Zinn and his fellow authors. The fact of being "accompanied" by Ed and Tessa is very valuable.
I have found this course a truly life-changing experience. As a born worrier, who has been through some particularly distressing and tragic experiences, I felt as if I had tried everything to change my habitual responses to life without success. Now at last I've found, not only something that really works, but a skill that will get even better with practice The mindfulness course improved my sleep, my self-confidence, my concentration and even my relationships

A brilliant course that has made me more aware of myself and my impact on others.
It has enabled me to reduce my own stress but I think more importantly the stress I cause to others.
This course has been a good, cost-effective start to mindfulness practice. 'Face-to-face' courses tend to be quite expensive and doing this course has helped me make the decision as to whether more training will be a viable investment, rather than committing to a lot of expense and hoping for the best. It has also been very beneficial. I didn't feel I was stressed when I started, but my stress score still went down considerably. I find the practice great for allowing a sense of perspective. Highly recommended.
Before taking the course, I read the testimonials. They were extremely positive and removed any doubt I had about spending time and money this way. This was the right thing to do! So I'm taking the time to add my own testimonial: if you're considering it, my advice is to do it. I'm not a changed person, but I am one with a few more resources to draw on and play with, and with more pervasive and gentler curiosity. There is a strong emphasis on stress here but you don't need to be stressed right now, or even expect to suffer from stress at other times to benefit: it'll also help you make more of even the best of times!
