What a wonderful course, calm and designed for people like me - ordinary - I felt confident that I could do it and enjoyed the experience. Thank you very much.

Down to earth advice and techniques that are helpful and workable. I found this course more useful than all the countless books and CD's I have tried in the past. Well worth £40.

I found the course really helpful as it actually voiced very accurately what I was thinking and thus made me realise that I'm not the only one who thinks the way I do. It also showed me that there are tools there to actually help me cope with the thoughts and feelings that have been stressing me so much. I hope to go on and continue to use these tools in my daily life to help me keep things in perspective and calm me.

I found this course stimulating and thought-provoking. I would certainly recommend it to those who are starting to come out of the main pit of depression and who want to find an alternative route out of the maze of self-destructive thoughts.

When I started the Be Mindful Online course I felt like I wanted to die. I felt like that all the time, and even though I had counselling before and was trying to use the techniques I had learnt, they just didn't work. I could tell myself that what I was thinking was a Thinking Error but I couldn't feel it.
I don't feel suicidal any more, I haven't since about Week 2 of the course. I can't actually remember what it feels like to be suicidal all the time. I feel like this course has saved me - although I realise that I wasn't meant to do the course while I felt so awful. I had not been able to get the help I needed from my health authority so I was willing to try anything and I am so glad that I did. Thank you.

I thought at first this course was nothing new, and perhaps of little substance, but decided to put negativity to one side and go with it. Whilst it is what you say an introductory course, I then found some really useful insights into managing stress and low mood which I think I will be able to use myself and also recommend to my patients. Being an 'Awareness' rather than a 'Relaxation' approach is a real breakthrough. Well worth it!

I have attended mindfulness courses in the past but wasn't comfortable with the group setting and found it very difficult to practise alone. The guided meditation practices of this online course were a tremendous help in establishing regular mindfulness practice.

I have been suffering with bi-polar for most of my life, and especially since 1978 when I was first admitted to a psychiatric hospital. I am now 62 and have been on many courses over the years but this has given me the most help and given me the most positive outlook that any have ever given me. I feel that I can take this forward into my life and that it will be a useful tool for progression. I have learnt techniques that are straight forward, and some only take a short time to relieve my stress, whereas before it would take much longer. It does however take practise and I feel that if I can keep this practise going that my life will be improved. It has already improved significantly giving me less stress and more confidence, without the feeling that I can't be in control of how I react to stressful situations. The course was well structured and the videos were excellent. I found all the exercises were easy to follow and I now feel a new confidence in going forward with my life.

I have found this course extremely useful at a time in my life when my normal coping techniques were not working. I felt that everything was out of control, including me, and knew that I needed to reach out for something different to support myself. I am now on the road to recovery. I have found ways to continue my life with a new awareness and gentleness towards myself and life's events to enable a better balance. I would recommend this course to anyone who is finding life stressful.

I had been reading about mindfulness meditation and I got more and more interested in the benefits it could bring, so when I saw this online course I decided to go for it with no hesitation. At the end of the 4 weeks I am extremely satisfied and I can recommend it because, if done with dedication, it brings the unquestionable benefits that only practising mindfulness can bring.

The mindful online course was fantastic! I found it really helpful in being able to learn to control my reactions (and over reactions!) to stressfulness situations, or situations that I don't feel comfortable in. I use the breathing space on a daily basis now and would be lost without it! I intend to keep practising my mindfulness further with the satisfaction that it has already benefitted me and I believe will continue to do so.

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.

A good course that I would recommend to everyone. It doesn't take up too much of your time but the more you practice it the more it helps. I hope this is just the beginning of something that I will incorporate into everyday life for the rest of my life.

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.

I've found the Be Mindful Online Course extremely helpful. It's helped me to realize that I don't need to rush around all the time, constantly "doing" and mentally adding things to my ever increasing To Do list. I'd read about mindfulness before I did the course but had a limited understanding of it. I feel that I know have a clear idea of what mindfulness is and exactly how it can be beneficial. Taking the time out to practise mindfulness has made me more effective, helped me to accomplish more and made my mind less frantic and much more calm. The emphasis on being kind to yourself has been good for me too as my default setting is to be overly critical. I'd definitely recommend it if you're feeling that life's getting on top of you and you're struggling to cope.

I found this course to be simple to follow even whilst starting new medication for anxiety. The emails sent between sessions where helpful in encouraging you to keep going. I have found the 3-minute breathing exercise really useful to practice during the working day to reduce my experience of stress from escalating. I would recommend this course also because it is affordable.

I discovered this course, a few days after taking time off work with stress. I had 4 weeks sick leave and this course helped me enormously to deal with each day;
1) by providing a focus
2) helped me clearly understand why I was stressed and
3) what I needed to do to stop it happening again.
I had to resign from that job and looking for work in the immediate aftermath was not nearly half as stressful as it would have been. I can actually enjoy each day despite the uncertainity knowing that the right job will come along and getting stressed does not help. I still have some way to go, but by practiscising every day, I will enjoy life, work and relationships so much more.

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 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

Clare Maria Campbell

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.

Geoffrey

Jan 2010

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.
