Since its launch in 2010, thousands have taken the course and report outstanding levels of satisfaction; 71% of patients who take the course find it helpful, with only 3% finding it unhelpful.
With Pathway through Pain a participant can expect to enjoy a significantly reduced impact of pain on their daily life.

The course it well set up and a great help to anyone in persistent pain. It has easy to follow instructions with just the right amount to deal with each time you log on. Face to face chat with a specialist in their subject makes you feel you are not alone. Would highly recommend this course.
Frances - Review
I have actually enjoyed doing the course because it has been a regular reminder to take stock and take care. I really love all the meditations and will use them regularly - they help when the pain is bad and do actually reduce it. This just shows that getting rid of any tension/stress is so important in managing pain.
The online course is run in partnership with 18 NHS pain services
