Absolutely excellent, teaching and course content

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

I've recently discovered Mindfulness meditation and have begun to practice it. I went on Colette's Stress Management course Feb/March 2013. Its one of the best things I have ever done and one of the best courses. It fits very nicely with my own spiritual journey.
 
(MfS Course, 2013)

 

The Breathworks course helped me to stop, take stock. I learnt useful techniques, I'm less stressed, it's helped my relationship dynamic and I feel better.

 (MfS Course, 2013)

 

 The Breathworks course re-kindled a positive attitude to meditating; much less resistance, kinder to myself, much more in my body

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

Done lots of courses and Colette is exceptional - knowledge - practice - sharing own experiences

(MfS, 2013)

 

I'm using the practice to help me gain more insight into patterns of behaviour and to be more compassionate with myself

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

I gained a deep understanding of mindfulness, a felt experience of practice. I learned to observe without judgement and to practice self-compassion with full awareness

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

A really pleasurable, practical and enlightening experience

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

It's the beginnings of a life-long, self-supporting practice

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

I've gained a growing sense that if I practice regularly I will be compassionate towards myself and develop my self-awareness

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

I learnt a variety of practices, gained an understanding of the importance of practice, self-compassion and self-care

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

A lovely, warm learning environment with some valuable insights and strategies that I'm going to find really useful

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

Good group dynamic and comforting atmosphere

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

I learnt from the experiences of others, about not being self-critical, from the experiences of the trainer which gave me hope for myself that I can get better and learn self acceptance

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

I have a toolkit of techniques to help manage stress and anxiety and an accepting attitude to self

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

Refreshing to share experiences, enjoyable, uplifting and reassuring

(MfS Course, 2013)

 

The course helped me to be less in my head and to be kinder to myself.

(MfS Course, 2012)

 

Excellent training and sessions. The cd's are brilliant

(MfS, 2012)

 

The quality of training was great. The trainer's attitude helped me to feel at ease and really contributed to the success of the course.

(MfS Course, 2012)

 

I'm calmer and have gained more self-awareness. Great to bond with others. Everything about the course is to be liked and I highly recommend it to anyone.

(MfSCourse, 2012)

 

I've gained a better understanding of where I'm coming from and a set of skills to work on.

(MfS Course, 2012)

 

 I've learnt a number of techniques I can use to reduce stress and help me identify it when it arises.

(MfS Course, 2012)

 

The trainer was friendly, explained everything clearly and was able to adapt.

(MfS Course, 2012)

 

I've gained knowledge on how to deal with thoughts and how to live in the now instead of the past or the future.

(MfS Course, 2012)

 

I have been held in a space where I was safe to explore looking at and uncovering deeply traumatic past events. I have more skills and techniques now to ‘take a peek’ and not be overwhelmed/re-traumatised. I now feel I can begin to heal – gently and slowly from a perspective of loving kindness.

(MBSM Course, 2011)

 

The course has been all that I expected and hoped for. I feel calmer and I’m coping better with situations.

(MfS Course, 2011)

 

I went away with a sense of re-connection with techniques that alleviate stress and remembering a bit who I am

 (MfS Course, 2011)

 

I think it came at the right time for me and gave me some useful skills, tools and insights that I certainly intend to use. Due to illness I could not practice as much as I wanted to in between sessions but, in a way, that increased my awareness of its value.

(MfS Course, 2011)

 

This course has given me actual choices in how I deal with life's twists, it's given me
a gentle kind acceptance. I wish that I had some of this knowledge many years ago but I am now far more hopeful for my future..thankyou.

(MfS Course, 2011).

 

I am very grateful for the opportunity to attend the course. I'm easier to live with now! I
appreciate more now. I've learnt so much despite many other experiences of meditation.

(MfS Course, 2010)

 

The support of the group has been very important. It's so different to reading a book or using a CD.

(MfS Course, 2010).

 

I drove home, enjoying the drive, I felt different and I racked my brains to see what could be
different and realised it was the effect of the mindfulness course and I just felt at peace,
nothing else had changed.

(MfS Course, 2010).
