I have found this course to be an eye-opener; although I had myself taken on various methods of coping with chronic constant pain; I find that having those points validated by the Team members in this course, and having it explained to me along with further information on other methods suggested in here, means that I can tailor all the information towards my condition. I found I'd made the important connection between the pain and my mobility in this course; namely, that the pain itself isn't damaging my joints, but that increased stretching and mobility will help with muscle strength and suppleness rather than little movement and pain. I had always thought that the more it hurt the more damage it was doing. I have more confidence in living day to say with my condition now and that's thanks to this course as well. It's very reassuring to know that I can dip into and put of the course into the future too. Very Many Thanks for the help; and the way the course is arranged makes it informative without seeming overbearing. Thank You

I found this course very useful. Also I was a bit apprehensive but found it very eye opening. To get the most out of the course be prepared to maybe change how you approach your daily life. The relaxing and meditation videos I will return to often. Thank you

This is a really well put together course and thank you for producing it. I think I've realised that my pain experience probably isn't quite as bad as I thought and the techniques described throughout have, for the most part, been useful. Overall I think I am much more confident that despite being a chronic pain sufferer, I do actually manage it very well.

I highly recommend anyone with chronic pain to complete this course. It has helped me enormously. It is positive and gives what we all need....Hope. Hope that we can manage our own pain not the pain manage us. It works. Thanks to all the team for making this course a pleasure to complete and for helping me reach my goals.

I have found this course helpful at times. the relaxation parts I have used. not knowing your alone and its not in your head helps a lot.

Some very good advice and exercises. GPs should do the course so they can understand pain more.
I've learnt a lot during the course, I find the relaxation section beneficial as long as I use it often. the pain is always there but i'm starting to control it a little better because of what I've learnt. fingers crossed i'll get better.

I found the relaxation section very helpful and in general the whole pathway was of great interest and help
Having just completed this course I would recommend anyone who has pain issues to give it a try you will learn something new...
Mr S. Harris
This course has been really informative and given me lots of tools to help me manage my pain. I am looking forward to some of these tools becoming habits for me and my pain to become manageable in the near future. Thank you!
A very simple but informative course. The small, concise steps made absorbing information easy. Access to the library, made continuing to practice newly learnt skills simple.
This course is OK for people that have never done meditation or mindfulness before. As I have and this does help very much in relaxing.
The Pathway through Pain online course provides an amazing insight into pain management, from exercise to relaxation. Through it you get to gain the experience and advice of a number of professionals who understand the challenges of everyday pain management, in the comfort of your own home. It has provided me with invaluable support and the platform on which to build - highly recommended.
I have learnt that you can help control pain yourself although every day can be different, so you need to make most of the good days and not give up on bad days. Over all I have found the course beneficial. Marian Ludlow
I cannot thank the Team of Pathway through Pain enough. Your Team has provided excellent course work that is suited to individual needs, very informative and thought provoking videos, while having ongoing questionnaires and the Journal at the beginning of each step. The Review, Library etc. is an excellent tool that I hope I will be able to use for the coming months and especially the Meditation videos. Thank you again.
I am new to learning that I am in pain and that my behaviour has been affecting others around me. My pain has contributed to a lot of things over the years and I wasn't aware just how many aspects of my life, my way of thinking, and my relationships has been affected by this. By doing this course I feel I have learnt to start challenging a life time of negative thought and challenge those feelings of self worth as well as how I react to others instead of saying 'I'm FINE', I now react with 'I'm struggling can you help me please'. I now realise I can't be a superwoman because it's wore me out doing that and the negative result of trying to do everything is that now I can't do anything I want to do as I am so consumed by the 'everything'. If I outsource and delegate things then my work load gets lighter and I can do the things I want to do instead.
Excellent course, extremely helpful.
I feel that a lot of time and effort has been put into this course by the various Tutors and this has reasserted my idea that this is the way to control pain. I have found the course very helpful and would like to thank them all for their time and effort.
I found the course very helpful for me and I hope other people do to .
After a 6 month black hole of depression post spine operation, chronic pain and feeling abandoned, I felt I won the Lottery when Dr Cathy Price signed me up for this course. With the exception of the Mindfulness sessions (for reasons stated in General Feedback), I have found them easy to follow and inspirational. Two weeks after starting the course 3 friends took me out for coffee and were amazed at the change in my positive, happy state in such a short timescale.
This has all been so helpful, and a comfort logging in daily, it made me feel not so alone with the pain. Everyone who has contributed to this course has been excellent, and I only wish I could meet them all in person. I think to do one of the residential courses must be wonderful. Many thanks to you all
This is a course that gives you a better understanding of pain, it allows you to relax about the stresses you have which are associated to pain. For me the benefits are a reduction of medication and a lot more pain free days.
