I found some of it useful and some not, but well worth completing as anything that helps has got to be worth the effort.
Really enjoyed the meditation and mindfulness sections of this course, I have learned a lot regarding how to cope and any help for me was always going to a plus. Thank you.
This has been a very helpful course and I have taken a lot from it. I have recommended it to my sister-in-law and hope that she can be referred. I have also had a lot of support from my Church in the form of prayer. At the moment the pain is under control, I hope I can continue in this state. Thank you very much.
Thank you for including me on the course. I have found it very insightful and although I have practiced most of these techniques before, it has provided me with a discipline to move forward with a more positive attitude. I realise that there is no magic bullet to help me with my pain, but learning new techniques to alleviate the times of crisis, is a very important step for me and I will continue to practice them. I have learned the most important step and that is pacing myself.
I find the relaxation videos quite good. A lot of the contents are very good.
I have been struggling with a great deal of pain for almost 5 years and it has been getting worse over the last year especially. The meditation techniques have really helped me as I struggle with relaxing to fall asleep, and I will continue to use them into the future. I have found that it is so important to pace activities and exercise of any kind, and to stop before any pain increases. I have enjoyed the course very much and appreciate the support it has given me. Thank you so much.
I thoroughly recommend this programme to any one suffering from chronic back pain, it will change your life.
I thought this was a very useful course. I like the way the thought pattern does change things. Also not to overdo it. I now do a little when I'm not feeling so good and I definitely do not go mad when I'm feeling good. My bad habit was doing too much on a good day, this would then wipe me out for 2-3 days. I love the meditation sleep cd. I have listened to several cd's regarding meditation and by far I think this is the best I've heard. A lot of the exercises I do already but there were definite parts of this course that were very useful. I would recommend.
I found this course very good
I can see the uses and benefits of the course and to a degree I have found it useful certainly combined with other courses I am currently participating in. The relaxation parts of the course I have found particularly useful. So to briefly sum up, a good course, some people may find it more useful than others, but I feel there is something in there for everyone. Thank you.
Found the course interesting detailed and in areas very helpful. Will definitely take on board some of the thing's I've learned to try and cope with pain on a day to day basis.
I have found this course very helpful, I have been able to complete it my own pace in my own home. I would not have been able to attend this course as a group session because of anxiety issues, so the way that this has been set up was perfect for me thank you.
I would recommend this course to anyone who is struggling with their pain. Completing the course online was the perfect option for me. I went at my own pace, on the days when I felt ready to complete a section then move on to another. There are 24 steps in total. I have learnt and continue to practice everything that I have been shown. It all really does work if you are prepared to have an open mind and the determination to learn the new skill sets presented here.
I found the course very helpful, especially the relaxation techniques, being made aware that pain doesn't mean damage and the stretching exercises.
I have found this course really helpful and I have found the part about mindfulness/meditation very useful as I think this is the part which I would like to work on the most. Thank you for all your support

I have found the course overall helpful and uplifting although I have not learned a great deal from it. There have been times when I have had a long lapse due to personal pressures or pain surges. However, I have found that when one does have a pain surge this is the best time to get onto the course to try to do something positive as it really is all about management. Thank you.

Having been diagnosed in 2015 with two missing discs I came to the course with an open mind about its potential usefulness. I have been pleasantly surprised at how easy it has been to engage with the programme. Having now completed it I would very much recommend it to anyone who either has no access to face-to-face treatment or wishes to incorporate the programme into their existing care regime.

I have been dealing with chronic pain for over 14 years. Nothing has seemed to help. Once I completed this class, I learned much more information on how to deal with pain and also learned need coping skills to deal with my problem. Today, I still have some pain but I am able to deal with it and get around daily. I would highly recommend this course to all those who feel chained down by chronic pain.
