The one thing I found consistently valuable from participating in this online course, was being able to access it when I needed to. I have shared techniques with friends and family which has reinforced its effectiveness personally. I am now reconciled to the fact that I'm not perfect but its not a problem going forward.
I found this course extremely useful and informative. It was very easy and clear to follow with each step. I especially found the meditation exercises beneficial and I will be continuing them. There is a lot to think about and it can really be put into place in my daily living. Many thanks!
Very interesting different view of my pain conditions and how to manage them better than taking constant pain relief tablets. Will revisit the notes to concentrate on what has been taught and practice the advice given. I feel more hopeful now that I can overcome some of these problems using things taught on this course. Thanks a lot.
Excellent well-structured course which includes elements such as the relaxation exercises which I would not previously have considered as part of pain management.
The positivity from this course has helped me to have the confidence to start the new year with a new job. I was always very careful in what I did because I believed that pain meant damage and now I am doing a lot more and working through the pain, being careful to pace myself. Many thanks to the whole team for all the help you have given me.
Thank you! I have found all of the information and advice extremely helpful especially the guided meditations. I would highly recommended this course to anyone suffering from chronic pain.
