I have this course very interesting and beneficial. Very well paced and has helped me think that I am not alone. It has made me think about how I do things and how I responded. I am in more control of my pain and better placed to pace myself. I have enjoyed the various sessions including meditation and stretching excercises. I have been restricted in doing the excercises due to new problems with a hip and shoulders.

The course helped me to come to terms with pain and be less anxious, other than that it hasn't really made any dramatic changes. I think because much of my pain is from nerve damage and compression which is very difficult to control. I liked particularly the meditaton and relaxation exercises which I would recommend to anyone to try as I found them.very helpful.

The course Is very well constructed and I wish I had been offered this 5 years ago instead of being told by my doctor that there’s nothing more they can do so I need to just accept the pain and live with it. This is a much more positive approach and could help people get their lives back again rather than feel abandoned by the NHS.

I was very happy to take part in this course. I found it useful and informative, and I have started to put the things which I have learnt into practice. It takes some work and commitment, but it beats reaching for a pill every time. I am looking forward to controlling my pain in a more natural and positive way in the future. Many thanks - Jennifer

If I’ve learned anything from my time with the pain clinic is that always take any help offered and make it work for you. There is never a one size fits all approach to any chronic illness and all we can do is take each day as it comes and try your absolute best to incorporate any of the coping mechanisms laid out from the course. If I know I’m trying my best then I know I’m doing all I can to make an awful illness understandable to those inside my support system and accept that I really don't have much control over the good or bad days but I do have control of how I deal with them.

I have always tried to maintain my condition (degenerative lumbar spine) but when I have had periods of severe pain flare ups it became hard. I was recommended the course by my specialist and pain management team and I am really happy I did. The course confirmed in my mind the things I already knew and had provided me with new skills and techniques to manage a flare up. I always used to focus on whether the pain was because more damage is occurring but now I know more about this and feel so much more confident in how I will cope in the future! Thank you so much for putting this course together! Doing the course online is so easy I could do it at a convenient time for me in a place I am comfortable! Not some hall with uncomfortable chairs.

Its has been interesting to listen to the doctors, physiotherapist and other specialist throughout the course. The course has helped me to remember some of the techniques to use when the pain is really bad.

Well, I thought that this would not be of any use for me at all but I was wrong - It has really helped me in several ways! I would highly recommend that if you do this course you must make sure that you complete the whole course .

There is a variety of content presented in this course but unfortunately, I did not feel I learnt anything new that I was not already implementing in my life. Other users may feel differently, so please don't take my word for it!

I have little and no enthusiasm in many things I thought the course was too long winded and has driven me nuts. I can only concentrate for a few minutes before I lose the plot. The amount of times I've wanted to smash my phone, but just couldn't be bothered - it would have caused me more stress. The course is well worth while for people who can concentrate for long enough to do it.

I found this course very helpful to me and has given me some tools to use in my effort to live my life with this constant pain, but I am not just going to give in to it. The course has also helped me realise that stretching and mindfulness sessions are helpful. I have been taking some mindfulness taster sessions privately and have also found this beneficial to my mindset, and with some CBT therapy I am having, my anxiety levels have dropped - that’s with all the Covid 19 pandemic as well. Thank you.

Even though I was aware of most of what the course covered it was worth doing just to make you focus on different things related to your pain.
