This course has been a valuable tool for me as it has focussed me on how much time I've spent 'living in my head'. By slowly moving away from that and appreciating and enjoying the everyday things I do I am becoming more aware of the enjoyment of the everyday, simple things and less stressed and worried about the future. I feel calmer and more in control.

I was very sceptical about this when I started it so was very surprised at how valuable I have found it The most eye opening thing was realising that you cant make stressful situations go away but you can learn to live with them and not allow worrying about them to invade every part of your life it does take a bit of effort but some of the practice sessions are quite enjoyable. In spite of my doubts it does do what it says on the tin. My stress levels have halved since I started the course.

I decided to try the Be Mindful course as I was experiencing a great deal of stress of was aware that I was over-reacting to situations and feeling low about my own responses. Be Mindful really helped to shift the focus and take them time to consider my position and how I can take stock of the things going on around me that especially those that I felt I couldnt control, it helped me to bring myself into the situation and learn to accept and take care of myself better.

Enormous thanks to Be Mindful. I have found engaging in the course far easier than I imagined and it is so incredible to actually find that it can make such a difference to how you can feel. I would say to others to at least give it a try, however sceptical you might be. It is very private, all done to suit your timings whatever they are. Again my heartfelt thanks for this facility.

I think this course has started back on the route to mindfulness and for making the right choices in my life. It has been a short but valuable foundation for the next part of my journey.

A very gentle and self affirming way of tackling anxiety/stress, even in a month I have found the techniques useful and intend to keep them active by regular practice. The most valuable part has been to treat myself gently, something that hadnt really occurred to me before.

I have found the mindful online course very easy to follow. It has definately helped me become more mindful and less caught up in every day stresses. It doesn't take a lot of time up and I particularly liked the 'gentle reminders' that are emailed that have helped to keep me on course.

I didn’t feel particularly stressed at the beginning of the course however my score lowered at the end showing the benefits of mindfulness. I feel a lot calmer and very much in the here and now rather than worrying about the future.

Before starting I was "well stressing" score of 25, after with a score of 9! I find it really helpful to take a break from work and do my breathing, after returning from work following 9 months off with depression, my employers are now more mindful of my condition and the need to take a break, breathe things out. As a recovering / recovered alcoholic I find the new exercises helpful to keep my mind off my cravings.

I would recommend this 4 week online course very strongly not just to those suffering from stress, anxiety or depression but to anyone who lives in the modern world, trying to do and be their best, juggling all the demands of family and work. When I started the course I was in the middle of a relapse so perhaps I shouldn't have continued. However I found it helped me to reverse the progress and I am now definitely on the upward rather than the downward slope. It is the first therapy I have experienced which is based on love and compassion and therefore extraordinary in its effects. By learning to treat ourselves with love and compassion we can offer love and compassion to others and feel a real connection. That connection generates more love and compassion and so the cycle grows.

I work in a stressful environment, often dealing with acutely unwell mental health clients who need to be brought to hospital under section. Mindfulness has enabled me to be aware of my own stress levels and reduce them. This in turn has allowed me to be a more balanced professional, calmer, more grounded and kinder to myself. Difficult decisions still need to be made, and the client is always the centre of my focus, but afterwards when they are safe I can now bring the focus back to my body and my breathing. Mindfulness is a simple idea, not complicated, and it teaches us to not complicate things.

I was having trouble coping with the emotional after effects of breast cancer, work was getting on top of me & I felt anxious all the time. Mindfulness was suggested as a method of helping me cope - I looked at a couple of books & then found this online course.
Making the commitment to the course was really helpful - having tutors go through the practices with you, having weekly assignments so you could learn it in bite sized chunks etc both really helped my stress levels & made me feel empowered in that there was actually something useful I could do to help myself! I can't recommend it highly enough & do feel its given me tools I can use for the rest of my life.

I really found this course useful. I was unsure about the format and thought that it would be a little impersonal but that was not borne out. It’s very supportive and easily used. I hope to continue with mindfulness throughout my life.

I really enjoyed and benefited from the course. My stress levels have dropped significantly. The course is easy to follow and very practical. I had previously read a lot about mindfulness but hadn't made it a daily practice,

This is a fantastic course. Incredibly well thought out, easy to navigate and use. Offers a range of different methods of mindfulness, so if you don't get on with one way, there is another that may be more your style. I have loved it. Thank you!

Clearly presented, practical help in becoming aware and mindful. I was able to utilise skills immediately in stressful situations. Really enjoyed the course and have already recommended it to 2 more friends.

Mindfulness has helped me cope with a long term illness. Before I started mindfulness, severe symptoms would make me upset and panicky, but I've learnt to cope with even the worst pain calmly. I feel much less anxious and far more able to cope.

Thank you so much for the Mindfulness course. Everything about it was clear, straight forward and I liked that it wasn’t pressure based, but rather learning to be kinder to oneself. I will recommend this course to others in the humanitarian field, as it adds to a helpful tool kit. Many thanks!

I was skeptical but I found that fitting mindfulness into my day made me more, not less, productive, as well as relaxed.

Alexandra Davey

This course has provided me with the opportunity to experience practicing mindfulness meditation without the high cost of one of the one-to-one or distance learning courses and in a format which has been easy to fit into my daily life. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking to continue and develop my practice through a more in-depth course as soon as I can. The benefits to my daily life from working through this course have been that I am more aware of my reactions to stress and more able to deal with these as they arise and not get caught up in thoughts. Also, I am more able to experience each moment as it arises and not become anxious about what is going to happen or not happen next. Thank you.

The course has really made a difference. I feel so much better. It's hugely comforting to know I have something really effective up my sleeve when things get tough. I enjoyed spending some special time looking after myself - it felt like a treat. My backache has eased considerably too - thanks to mindful yoga. I intend to do a lot more. Thank you - a really wonderful resource, well presented and very reasonably priced.

Simple, straight-forward advice in a well structured and very user-friendly format. Good value too.

I really have enjoyed this course even if I wasn't particularly stressed to begin with. (And I'm even less stressed now!) I liked the presenters and liked their voices on the recordings. I learnt some things about myself that I hadn't been able to get at before - even though meditation isn't new to me. The variety in the different exercises was very useful and I'm optimistic that I'm going to be able to continue to practice.

Really enjoyed this journey - not been the best student ever! Sometimes have let my practice slip but feel like the foundations of my journey are here.. Has really made a difference to my day to day life and to the wellbeing of me, my husband, my kids and friends and family. I work for the NHS on a Mental Health Assessment Ward and being mindful has really helped how I view my job and the stress that I carry, but it also helped me to relate better and build better relationships with the patients. Thank you. Life is a journey and although I may not be perfect at being kind to myself and finding the time to practise I have made an ongoing commitment to try and incorporate mindfulness into every day of my life.

After many many years of rushing through my problems by thinking of the future, I have now learned a new way of being…. Although it will not be easy to keep it up…I’m determined to practice this very peaceful way of being as much as I can throughout my daily life.
