This is, by far, the best 'self-help' course I have ever undertaken. The way in which we identified our issues, and addressed them was excellent because we were expertly guided to find our own solutions. This course is brilliant value: I have spent a lot of money on life coaches and counselling over the years, but this course delivered more benefits to me than anything else I have ever done in self-care for my wellbeing.
Steve, Group Course
'At a time when I’d been feeling quite low and stressed, Mark was friendly and approachable, he explained Positive Meditation and mindfulness well and applied it to my individual situation, I feel this is going to be really helpful and would recommend it to anyone, left the session feeling much more positive’.
Amy, Private Client
"Great mix of practice and theory but which was delivered so effortlessly. The workshop felt like a conversation not a lecture. I have gained new knowledge on serotonin, its importance and how to build it. The STOP technique, which I can't stop talking about, has been really helpful since the workshop to bring awareness to thoughts and a route out of the mind rut.
Vicky, Group Workshop
"Excellent teaching, presence, explanations and examples.
I loved the meditation sessions!"
Violina, Group Workshop
"The course was taught brilliantly. I wasn't expecting so much discussion, but thoroughly benefitted from it. I think it has changed my life. It has given me, unsurprisingly, some mindfulness. I feel generally more empowered now and I have greater tools to let go." David, Group Course
"It was the right balance of self-enquiry and meditation. Very practical tips instead of spiritual 'guidance'." Anna, Group Course
"Excellent courses and teaching - and a great way to relax while learning. Did me a power of good - and still feeling great weeks later. Thoroughly recommended." Phil, Group Course
"The workshop was absolutely wonderful! Really engaging and thought provoking. I now have a better understanding of myself." Sarah, Group Workshop
"I found the 1:1 sessions really helpful as they gave me the opportunity to learn mindfulness and different ways to meditate. I appreciate being able to speak openly and honestly, and discuss my issues which have been causing me stress and anxiety. I found you really easy to talk to and will continue to make time to meditate as I feel that this has made me feel a lot calmer and helped with work pressures."
Sarah, Private Client
"I enjoyed the day very much. Mark's more direct, practical approach combined well with Neil's more holistic, spiritual approach. It has re-ignited my desire to practice meditation again. The science of the brain chemistry was also very interesting as well as a myriad of other titbits!"
Jon, Group Workshop
"The workshop helped me to understand myself better and has shed some much needed light on my current situation." Jan, Group Workshop
"It was excellent. I felt comfortable in the group and able to contribute. It has opened my mind to a different perspective on how I live my life." Tessa, Group Workshop
"Mark has taught me to live in the moment, to not constantly worry about the future or feel guilty about the past. I know that what I have learnt in these four sessions I will take with me through whatever life throws at me and will make me a far happier, calmer and more positive person. I would recommend Positive Meditation to everyone – in fact I have!" Elly, Private Client
"The two courses have literally changed my life and I miss them now that it's over! Mark creates an atmosphere which is open and calm, making it easy for to people to speak freely and share their thoughts and views. I have gained a sense of calm and control" Alice, Group Course
"The course was excellent. I really like the relaxed atmosphere and how everyone is encouraged to share. I have learnt to be more compassionate to myself."
Emily, Group Course
"I attended a 1 day workshop and then swiftly booked onto the 6 week evening classes. Mindfulness is great and Mark was great at making the course relevant to everyone. I would recommend it. It is a small investment but the return is priceless!" Sarah, Group Workshop
"The course gets to the heart of what you are there for. I am definitely much more conscious of my own negative terminology and thoughts and I appreciate how the practised breathing techniques support balancing emotive situations.
Leanne, Group Course
"The free-flowing form of the course works well, as does Mark's style of delivery. I now have clarity on the triggers of my stress and negativity and techniques for mitigating and managing them." Mark, Group Course
"I absolutely loved the workshop. Very relaxed yet educational and inspiring." Kelly, Group Workshop
"I have participated on the courses and also drop in sessions. I highly recommend them to everyone. I feel more positive and calmer. I am able to detect my negative thought pattern quicker and snap out of it in ways I was not able to before meeting Mark." Sandra, Group Course
"I liked the way the course was taught - open and very informal. I actually looked forward to Tuesdays evenings not only for the course content but the 'vibe' of the group. The course has taught me how to not be constrained or controlled by what other people think (or what I think they may think). It has given me space and awareness of what my body is telling me." Doog, Group Course
"Mark's techniques helped me reset completely after a hugely stressful time and I will be forever grateful." Juliet, Private Client
"It was a very relaxing and insightful day. Felt very welcomed as I entered the door and totally accepted and un-judged by the group and very supported by the course leader Mark D. It was insightful, challenging and the content was delivered in an easy to digest manner (notes forwarded afterwards via e-mail worked well for me as it gave me the chance to process what had happened on the day before lunging into reading up)." Group Workshop
"I liked the clear and unambiguous language used by Mark and also the opportunity to hear real examples from the group, without feeling under pressure to participate if I didn't feel like it. I have a useful tool to go along with my other tools for addressing disturbing thoughts and feelings which can arise very quickly in my life."
Dean, Group Course
"It was a very enlightening course, very well taught and in a good atmosphere. I have learn't a different way of thinking. The idea of mindsets such as 'I must be on time' ruling how we act. For a while after the course I felt calmer, being aware of this. I also liked the unusual mental effort of trying to find something positive in the worst thing that could happen to you." Heather, Group Course
"I wanted to email you and say thank you. I really enjoyed the course - I feel like I got a lot out of it and I was sad when it finished! I enjoyed meeting nice people. It was also really reasonably priced, which is important, I've seen other mindfulness courses but haven't done them because they are £200+. I now know how powerful the breath is! (I've definitely been putting this into practice). A reminder (always needed) that the present is all we have and is what's important. Thank you." Anna, Group Course
"Mark has helped me to find a high measure of peace within myself through his calm, compassionate and humorous nature. He has an unending patience and kindness which has allowed my own true, calmer nature to spring forth. I am truly grateful to Mark and I would recommend him to anyone who seeks to live a more peaceful life." Abi, Private Client
"I enjoyed the variation between meditation practice and discussion. I liked the relaxed and fluid style the course was taught in, too - it worked really well. The STOP technique was particularly useful for me. It has given me greater understanding of mindfulness and how I can be mindful in everyday life as well as a way to identify and work with my negative thoughts (via the STOP technique)." Lindsey, Group Course
"I found the mix of guided meditation and discussion really helpful. I also really like covering a different topic/emotion every week. I have been able to start recognising my own thought patterns and how these create a lot of negativity and stress in my life. Thanks Mark!" Louisa, Group Course
"My decision to try the workshop was pretty random as I joined the same day, but after the 1st hour I knew I was meant to be there as everything that was covered struck a chord with me. Two days on I'm feeling a lot more positive about life and it's sort of given me a new pair of spectacles to see the world through. On the day, I actually experienced what I can only describe as a sort of shift/clink. Something changed inside or a light was switched on.... I'm also finding that I'm laughing again, and what I didn't mention on the day to Mark was that on my way to Sainsbury's for my lunch I experienced several random bursts of laughter - something has changed and I would like that to continue so much! Thank you so much!" Clover, Group Workshop
"Mark is a fabulous teacher as he was able to work through the topic so it was easily understood, explaining things in greater detail when asked. He was very personable. Mindfulness is something I had started practicing previously, before I even knew what it was and Mark's workshop has stayed in my mind since, I would definitely recommend it." Kate, Group Workshop
"The course was excellent and very positive - the informal style makes it feel a relaxing and safe place to discuss personal things" Group Course
"Given that at the start of the day we were a group of total strangers, it is testimony to Mark's ability to engender a completely relaxed and 'safe' environment which allowed the group to be totally honest and open about their feelings and thoughts. I learn't an awful lot - how to not be so hard on myself, to try and enjoy the 'now' and not worry about things I wished I had done." Jan, Group Workshop
"I am more mindful now! I have learnt how to pay less attention to negative thoughts and niggling worries. Excellent course." Group Course
"I've learnt a lot about the power of positive meditation and I've gained a much better outlook on life from it. I enjoyed the relaxed environment it was taught. It brought up very relevant issues and ways to cope through the STOP process." Stephanie, Group Workshop
"I really liked the open discussion structure and the opportunity for people to talk about their issues tailoring it to the individuals needs. It makes you think how you would tackle that problem if you were presented with it. The class environment is incredibly supportive." Sue, Group Course
"The course was really good - a good balance of reflection and practice with the freedom to experiment and find out what works for you. I have learned how to have more control over my thoughts and so reduce anxiety. I have found that attachment to outcomes is my weakness and I can now go away and work on this in more depth." Suzie, Group Course
"I was sceptical at first but glad I persisted. The course is challenging but all the more worthwhile for it as my colleagues noticed a positive difference in me within a month of starting the mindfulness course. I now have a toolkit for dealing with stress and a different perspective on the world."
Rose, Group Course
"Mark is an excellent instructor who enables you to develop a relative competence in a short time. And on top of it is interesting and fun!" Group Course
"The workshop was excellent. Mark did a fantastic job and was a real inspiration to all of us. I like how he managed to break down every situation that we gave him. I have gained new skills to transform my life, better self awareness and a realisation that I am the only one that can make me happy and I am the only one that makes me sad/angry. I think the workshop would be useful to anyone." Jamie, Group Workshop
"The level 2 course was brilliant. I've gained a sense of peace that I never had before and it's really helped to prevent me from worrying about things, which has always been a struggle - so thank you!" Louise, Group Course
"Positive Meditation has been a revelation. To question everything, to understand how much we unnecessarily take upon ourselves, to see how things really make you feel inside, to feel calm. Now I know what to do and how to do it and I haven't been happier. I can't thank Mark enough and would recommend the combination of questioning your beliefs and finding space for mindfulness to anyone who needs a bit of a guiding hand through life's ups and downs." Annette, Private Client
"Highly recommend the mindfulness and mediation classes to anyone who has a busy mind or worries about nearly everything. Mark offers clarity and the tools to work through thoughts and behaviour that you may be stuck in. Helps you be kinder to yourself and others. Put yourself first!" Sarah, Group Course
"I can't recommend Mark's work highly enough. In just one private session I completely transformed how I was in the most negative relationship in my life. Its like sitting with someone who guides you to put your head on the right way round. Well worth a try." Caroline, Private Client
"Mark is a warm, open teacher who puts people at ease very quickly."
Sarah, Group Course
"I thought the workshop was very well presented, I thought the way it was taught was excellent and I loved the breaks with meditation." Julia, Group Workshop
"The course is taught in very laid-back, relaxed way. Mark is a very approachable and warm person and creates a nice atmosphere among the participants. I have learnt how to check in with myself when I feel under the influence of unhelpful/negative thoughts" Gaia, Group Course
"The workshop was excellent. It is taught at a really nice pace, allowing for questioning and clarification. I didn't feel at all rushed or that time was an issue which really enabled me to consider the concepts fully. It really made me question my endless, "I musts", "I needs", "I have to's". Now I keep telling myself, "I could... but I don't need to" which is so liberating! Mindfulness provides a significant way of approaching the process of life and empowering the individual within that process."
Steve, Group Workshop
“If I’m honest, I was nervous to go to see a man I didn’t know and to sit there with my eyes closed for a period of time! I needn't have been. Mark is relaxed, and therefore relaxing. He is open and caring and very easy to talk to. The main difference between the first part of his sessions and any conventional ‘talking therapy’ is that Mark challenges you to think COMPLETELY differently. Whatever reason you think you have for doing something or thinking something can be examined and sometimes even turned on its head which is utterly fascinating and results in significant shifts in your own approach to situations... I have remembered the techniques at key times since I met Mark and often try to use what he taught me. You can definitely trust him. And he really cares about the outcome of your work together.” Emma, Private Client
"I enjoyed the workshop and found it to be an ideal combination of meditation, discussion and guidance in techniques for reducing anxiety. I have gained a real feeling of calm, inner peace and joy which I really hope will last as long as I continue to practice the techniques taught in the workshop. This is part of a journey I have been on over the last 6 months which has included CBT/counselling and mindfulness and this workshop has come at the ideal time to consolidate everything I have been learning on this journey." Rowena, Group Workshop
"I now have simple methods to calm myself down and live in the moment more; mainly how to meditate and relax and also how to stop negative thinking and question the thoughts that are spinning around in my head. The course is excellent"
Neil, Private Client
"I have learnt so much from the course. It was great to take the time to reflect and to learn new skills which I can now work into everyday life. I was so impressed by the structure of level 1 that I really wanted to attend level 2! I would recommend the course to any of my friends. At times there would be one member who would sometimes take up more time talking about his personal thoughts/feelings but Mark controlled this very well." Emily, Group Course
"I am much happier. I am able to catch my negative thoughts and slowly start challenge them more positive ones, to be able to question them. I can see the benefits of stopping and breathing and understand that meditation doesn't need to be done only by quietly sitting down. I really like the way the course is led, with a topic at first but also flexible adapting to people needs. It is great to share with the group and explore the different thoughts." Sandra, Group Course
"Loved it! Tailored to everyday life and experiences. Liked how it was structured and knowing what the subject matter for the following week would be. Really looked forward to each session and made some new mindful friends along the way." Kerry, Group Course
"The private sessions were very good and taught in a personal, articulate
and practical style. I have gained a useful skill set to assist with the management of stress and anxiety." Rob, Private Client
"You have helped me greatly to see the world differently and to be much happier. I enjoy your questioning approach and it has lead me to deal better with others and to lead a much calmer life. The realisation that we create our own world view was a profound one. Before we started working together I had only paid lip service to this truth; now I believe it. Being present and living in the moment is an attainable goal and you have taught me techniques that help to achieve this." Andy, Private Client
"I liked the flow of the workshop and the environment was comfortable enough for all to have an opinion. Mark is a great teacher and I have gained much insight! The workshop allowed me to stop long enough to reflect on a few changes I need to make but also made me appreciate the progress I have made. Overall - excellent!" Kelly, Group Workshop
"I loved the informal nature of the course and that there was no pressure to do the homework! I am already starting to feel more relaxed about the anxieties and stress I had relating to certain problems. Excellent!" Julian, Private Client
"It was the first time I joined a group like that and it was just perfect. Very interactive and helpful. I feel much happier and it is just exactly what I needed. Things make a little bit more of sense in my head. I have started noticing that when I am getting really overwhelmed or upset or anxious its because I went again into another big spiral of negative thinking. The course has provided me with a great base to keep exploring another way of thinking. Overall an excellent course. Sandra, Group Course
"The course was very good. I gained a valuable understanding about the connection between the mind and body from it and enjoyed Mark's soft yet persistent teaching style. I also gained an insight into how thoughts can cause pain, discomfort and discontent. More importantly how we can use our mind to reverse the process." Mike, Group Course
"The course was open, friendly and comfortable. The teaching methods were thought provoking and clear. I have already noticed a difference in my thinking. I now find myself challenging my thoughts and really believing that I can do things and am good enough!! Additionally I find that I am able to quieten my mind when my ego takes over, stopping myself from getting cross!!" Pauline, Group Course
"It was excellently done, professional and sensitive. You led us towards the answer, rather than telling us. I feel much clearer about the things in my life which had been frustrating me and feel like I have techniques to deal with them now."
Rachel, Group Workshop
"I have learnt some very simple techniques that have proved helpful to me and
I have started to gain a new perspective. This has helped me physically, I feel less stressed. I am able to sleep better and my relationships with others have improved. I am generally less worried and know that I will be able to cope should a problem arise. After the four sessions my outlook is definitely sunnier and I am much less troubled by my thoughts. I gained immediate relief from trying the meditation. The sessions were conducted in a friendly, relaxed manner; Mark was very easy to talk to, he often related issues from his own experience which I found helpful.Thank you again, meeting you has helped me enormously – I think a lot of people could benefit from your sessions. I will spread the word." Angela, Private Client
"The course was excellent - really enjoyable, relaxed and Mark was really approachable. I now have better insights into my own behaviour and how I can take control of my body and thoughts to change for the better." Zoe, Group Course
"I wanted to pass on how empowering your teaching was as the day after we spoke last a big drama kicked off but I put into practice the techniques we discussed and went on to diffuse a potentially explosive situation, and now everyone seems far more at ease with each other. Thank you for your time, support and wisdom." Kathryn, Private Client
"I took part in a Mindfulness and Insight course led by Mark Dunn last autumn and can only highly recommend this course. Mark is an excellent instructor who leads you not only to understand the principles of this reflexive approach but also enables you to develop a relative competence in using these ideas in your own life in relatively a short time. And on top of it is interesting and fun! I only can recommend it."
Claudia, Group Course
"It was really interesting and thought-provoking. It has helped me to accept difficult circumstances in my recent past" Group Course
"This mindfulness-on-the-go session helped me to integrate meditation into my daily life and to switch off a bit more. I really enjoyed the light-hearted nature of the course"
"I thought the workshop was excellent. It was well structured and gave lots of opportunity for discussion and to challenge the ideas presented and ourselves. Having meditated for many years and been to counselling, this workshop provided a new perspective on the way I think and approach meditation. I've definitely gained some more insight and found group work helpful as opposed to 1:1 counselling which I've been used to." Matt, Group Course
"Day to day I feel much calmer, I'm not sweating the small stuff half as much. I'm also being much more present / mindful in day to day tasks. Long term I'm going to try and use these techniques to help me make the career changes that I've been mulling over for a few years. Also the venue is great! I've done a months newbie yoga card and I've now joined Move GB! Thanks :)" Michelle, Group Course
"I loved the workshop. It was a great introduction to meditation and mindfulness and I have gained self-worth, confidence and enlightenment into a new way of feeling - taking the positive and dispelling the negative." Karen, Group Workshop
"A thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile class. Five stars! Thank you!"
Zoe, Group Workshop
"Mark offers a great deal of insight into how your thinking causes you difficulties. What's even better, he shows you how to manage your thoughts and create a lot more happiness in your life." Andy, Private Client
"I feel much freer from tendancies to beat myself up and feel so much lighter and confident that I have a practical tool to help maintain perspective. "I'm ok. It's ok!". It is disarming how powerful it has been but a wonderful thing too that I am very keen to continue. I like the fact that, whilst there was a clearly defined structure from one week to the next, it was fairly loose and guided by student's input as much as by Mark. It was a good balance. It was a sympathetic and "safe" environment to feedback." Sarah, Group Course
"Mark is fab. He is a great listener, incredibly understanding and has this wonderful ability to strip a problem back to bare basics, making it very simple to find a workable resolution. Mark is my first port of call whenever I am struggling. I always recommend him to others who are feeling challenged or stressed." Koren, Private Client
"I really liked the laid back manner of the course. I felt relaxed, and liked the way we all sat in a circle to talk...not just be talked at. Although it was also nice to be able to sit and listen. There was no pressure to talk when you didn't want to. I liked your calm manner and the way you got over information in a succinct way. I feel like I learned something new every week which I was able to put into practice at the time, and even now 6 months down the line. I still get angry but I deal with that anger in a very different way than I used to. I also really enjoyed learning some different meditation and deep breathing techniques which I have carried on doing....even at work!" Zelah, Group Course
"The sessions I went to with Mark were extremely helpful and enabled me to see how self-enquiry can help with anxiety and depression. The space Mark created was warm, welcoming and non-judgmental, which meant everyone present was able to contribute, and to benefit." Jane, Private Client
"Before coming to see Mark I was a little worried about Meditation itself and about what Self Enquiry would involve - how hard it would all be, if I could do it, and if indeed it could help. I needn't have been. Mark goes through everything with you slowly and makes you feel completely at ease. Even after one session everything starts to make sense and you wonder why you hadn't been doing this and thinking this way your whole life! I wanted to shout from the rooftops and tell the whole world to go and see Mark and try these techniques. I think they could help everyone to be more positive, to think differently and to live life in the moment." Anon, Private Client
Positive Meditation has completely changed the way I think about things. I have always been a planner and I would attach my happiness to the plan or the decision going right or wrong. Positive Meditation taught me that there is no right or wrong decision and life doesn't always need to go to plan. In fact sometimes it is better if it doesn't! Mark has taught me to live in the moment, to not constantly worry about the future or feel guilty about the past. I know that what I have learnt in these four sessions I will take with me through whatever life throws at me and will make me a far happier, calmer and more positive person. I would recommend Positive Meditation to everyone – in fact I have!" Elly, Private Client
"I was not sure what to think about Meditation or Mindfulness at first but I was sure I needed something to help me with my approach to life, stress, anxiety and low mood. After the first session Mark had given me enough guidance and insight for me to start to challenge and change my thinking processes, which immediately felt right. Since attending the four sessions I have changed my way of thinking and feel much happier and able to cope with whatever life sends my way. Mark is a great teacher and the course was worth every penny." Paul, Private Client
"If you live in the Bristol area, I'd highly recommend working with Mark Dunn of Positive Meditation. I sought him out a couple years back, after a chance meeting, and one session really started to shift my perspective. While I don't meditate "as often as I should", these kinds of practices can make a world of difference." Jonathan, Private Client
"Positive Meditation is taught in a very relaxing atmosphere which makes it easy to talk and get into the meditation. I felt that I could open up and talk about stuff without being judged and it’s a very simple method that you can then take forward to every area of your life. It’s taught me to let go of the little things that usually make me stressed or upset. And as a result I have a happier outlook on a day to day basis which helps me cope with the bigger issues in a better way." Anon
"The mindfulness techniques introduced me to a new way of approaching the multitude of ‘things’ that cause me anxiety and stress and to lighten my load. It does feel liberating to understand that I can disengage with so much of the mind babble that governs me – I live almost exclusively in my head and can see now that I can change that and feel quite excited about how that can develop. What I really like about it is that it is so simple and that it does not try to change anything. It lets life be what it is. You have helped me learn the importance of boundaries and accepting reality." Kirsty, Private Client
"Before learning Positive Meditation I regularly experienced tightness and bleakness – complete confusion and had a jumbled up overactive mind. At first when I learnt the techniques I was shocked that every-day life situations that had become reasons to live so negatively could be turned into something that did not leave me feeling angry and frustrated. Just thinking about our sessions now reminds me of how much they helped me. I still use the methods you taught and I would highly recommend others to you, Thank you, again." Grace, Private Client
"I approached Mark to help me with some specific anxieties I was experiencing but had an extremely limited amount of time to work with him before going overseas. After my first session I noticed a marked difference in my ability and attitude to dealing with my difficulties and unhappiness. I would have loved to have had more time with Mark but the few sessions I did have allowed me to change the way I thought about my situations and I feel I will be able to apply the techniques to other areas of my life too. A number of friends and family commented on the change they saw in me. I very much appreciated Mark's gentle but effective approach and his attention to my individual needs, often running beyond my scheduled time with him. I will and have recommended him to others. If you are struggling with any aspect of life I firmly believe he may be able to help you help yourself." Eryka, Private Client
"Positive Meditation really helped me at a time when I was facing a bit of a crisis. You were definitely a great support to me during this time and your calm demeanour helped to put my mind at rest." Andrew, Private Client
"After years of feeling troubled about a past memory in one session I felt completely different like something had completely lifted. His approach was unique and very powerful. I really felt at ease talking to Mark he has a very calm and comforting presence. I cannot recommend his Positive Meditation sessions more highly." Claire, Private Client
"I found Positive Meditation very helpful to me during what was a particularly difficult time. It was the start of my own journey into making positive changes in my life in order to dissolve the constant frustration, guilt and disappointment I felt in so many of my relationships." Catherine, Private Client
"Your Positive Meditation classes have given me more confidence and you have given me excellent advice that I have applied in my difficult moments and honestly everything you taught me works perfectly. I am very grateful and happy for what you have done for me, and I will definitely come back to you anytime I need it. Our sessions were very relaxing and I could see that you have passion in what you are doing. I had been to see a psychotherapist but she was more interested to look at the clock than hearing what I was saying. I have wasted my money on her but I could truly say that I invested good money coming to you." Maurizio, Private Client
"I felt that your classes were conducted in a great way, felt very comfortable, you have a very calming nature about you which was just what I needed. You helped me 'see through the trees' and examine what it was I was truly feeling and then challenge whether this was a true belief or not. I feel that I have and am still learning a lot about myself and this is due to your classes. I would just like to say a big thank you for helping me through a difficult period and this is still helping me now, as it is something that I can take with me throughout my life." Judith, Private Client
"I found your Positive Meditation classes very valuable and they very much helped me to get back on an even keel after a year or two of great emotional stress. I think the thing that made a huge difference was the chance I was given to talk freely about my problems prior to meditating. What made it particularly useful was the way you helped me to neutralise feelings of anger by steering me towards middle ground. The actual meditation was very relaxing and it helped me to empty my mind of destructive, angry and depressing thoughts. Each session seemed to be slightly different, which ensured that it was never boring. Things are a lot calmer now and I wonder whether this is largely due to my altered attitude, brought on by these very valuable sessions." Ewa, Private Client
"The course was excellent. I have gained the ability to realise when I am making myself unhappy or stressed for no reason. I now know how to stop the spiral of negative thoughts which I had previously been unable to do.The combination of the breathing exercises and the positive thinking is really complimentary as you feel calm and relaxed before you start talking about issues that are causing you difficulty in life. The way it is taught is professional but informal making you feel comfortable sharing the burdens that you are carrying." Rachel, Private Client
The workshop was very unthreatening, warm, friendly and I felt very connected to both Mark and all the other participants. Mark is an excellent teacher and the pace of the workshop was just right. I feel like I have gained a more positive aspect just 3 days after the workshop. Lots of great stuff to help in daily life - I just feel better and it has helped me to put myself first, rather than a stressful job which was sucking me dry. Sue, Group Workshop
"After the first session I had to book up the next 3 sessions straight away as I had made a giant step towards believing that life does not have to be horrible, pressured and full of anxious negative thoughts. Once I could see that I had a choice on how to view topics, situations, emotions, fears, anxieties and the world around me, I felt empowered. I actually started looked forward to experiencing the negative things so that I could practice changing the way I feel about them. I feel much more in control, in many ways by letting myself be out of control. These steps are really encouraging and people around me have noticed a difference, prompting a quote from my Dad of "Have you been drinking?", as I was chilled out and smiling (I had not touched a drop by the way!)." Paul, Private Client
