I found the relaxation and meditation videos a great help. These helped me relax and get to sleep a lot easier.

This course has really given me the push to help me reassess my life and working through the pain with different meditation sessions that I have found to be very useful taking timeout for yourself is something that I have never really found time for but just stopping for 20 minutes and using the different meditation audios has had a positive effect on my day to day life. Pacing my activities throughout the day has been a game changer for me and although I still occasionally overdo it I am gradually starting to notice how much I can tolerate and push myself before I need to take a break and rest to stop a major pain flare up. Thanks to all the team x

I have found this course very helpful . Although I have some medical knowledge, it has reinforced the importance of keeping moving, using relaxation techniques, and thinking positive. I have previously avoided exercise when in pain, now I keep going within my limitations.

I found the course very helpful and am so thankful that I was given the opportunity to take part. I thought I had already put into practice a number of ways to help myself without resorting to strong pain killers, eg Meditation, Mindfulness. But the course highlighted areas I hadn’t considered and helped me focus on other positive ways to approach and deal with my pain. I highly recommend anyone in chronic pain to follow this course, complete each stage, practice the exercises and meditations, it really does help a lot. I still have pain but I don’t allow it to fill my head and take over.

The course provided a structure and a focus to help with pain management. Working through the steps for the first time was an introduction to different ways of coping with chronic pain(s). The steps need to be revisited over time, and periodically, taking into account the goals which have been set.

The course was excellent. It mirrored the research that I had read about pain management. It was delivered in clear language and was well structured. It has helped me to organise my days in beneficial ways. Each morning I start with stretching. If I omit this step, my back complains during the day. Many thanks for the program. It has helped me immensely.

I have really enjoyed the online course, having been in chronic pain for so long, the course has given me lots of beneficial techniques to help me. It has taught me to relax more, to take my mind away from My pain, by doing hobbies, walking and also Pacing which I’m putting into practice and also my family are pacing too, which is great! It is so very important getting a good sleep routine, I am waking up feeling as though I’ve slept well. Doing the stretching exercises really help too. I think I lost my way a little and doing this course has set me back on track so I’m able to build on what I’ve learnt and enjoy my life again. Thank you for such a great course

I have really enjoyed this course, much of which I have covered before because of my ongoing depressive malady. However, this course has been really well presented and in just the right sized bites so that the mind does not get overloaded or go numb, which does happen with some courses and tutorials. It is well balanced too, with exercises introduced at sensible stages to reinforce the concept that has just been discussed. I should like to give this course and all those who input, 100% - bear in mind I have been through such courses of varying types before. This one actually works! Thank you - I really should like to have access to this whole course again to keep my mind actively reinforced with the concepts presented.

For me, the best message was that pain does not equal damage. I made it my mantra which helped me cope on days when the pain was severe. I was always a practitioner of mindfulness so it was good to hear that it is a fundamental part of managing pain. I have continued to do this to change my mindset and along with exercise, I have managed to take control more. This course has been easy to access and has helped me see things differently.  Alongside the library, it would be helpful to access various stages again to have some over learning. I am grateful that the physiotherapist recommended me to undertake this e-learning and I would like to thank the team for improving my understanding.

The Pathway through Pain programme was recommended for me to complete by a pain management consultant from my local hospital. I wasn't disappointed. The PtP team have put together easy to follow, helpful sequence of steps to teach you how to cope better with long term pain. Huge thanks to the whole team.

Certainly helped to have structure and information in a less stressful way. I liked the gentle nudge emails to get me on track again and the feeling of no time pressure.

The course was easy to follow and there were some good tips but not all related to my pain. It has made me more aware about myself and how others see me.

The pathway through pain course has confirmed the link between my levels of stress and levels of pain and given me the wisdom and tools for managing my stress and thus improving my pain. The physio has also improved my mobility, levels of pain and functioning. I know if I continue to exercise daily and follow the tenants of this course, I will be able to maintain my improvements and also continue to improve and enjoy a full family and working life. Thank you Pathway through pain team.
