What’s being said about the MBSR course?

“……

It has changed my life and I am excited about this journey I’m on and I will continue this throughout the rest of my life….

I’m calmer, more loving, I drive slower, and I’m more focused – more tuned into my body and thoughts.

The group formed a supportive bond. I liked that no matter how nervous I felt my comments always seemed considered, and after I had made them others started to say how they could relate.

I had some emotional weeks, but felt so much support from the group and Jenny, that I found it easier to deal with my emotions. .. ER – Worlingham

The course has helped me stand back and view daily life from a renewed perspective. I can apply the course to all aspects of my life – I’m calmer with an increase in focus – even happier! …………… DM – Beccles

Thank you so much for this wonderful course – it has been life-changing. I learnt more than I thought I would – I feel calmer, more relaxed and I definitely have more energy.

Jenny is a wonderful, motivational teacher. She delivered the course in a relaxed but professional manner. ……. VH – Beccles

Absolutely the entire course was valuable. The content of each session added different dimensions. I also found the group members really added value to the experience.

I would like to thank Jenny for her knowledge and skill in teaching the 8-week MBSR course. I have developed a regular mindfulness practice, which is benefitting me on a daily basis. I would recommend this course to anybody with a curiosity about mindfulness, and to anybody who want to learn how to manage stress in their lives…… RT - Worlingham

I feel more balanced, calmer, relaxed and I take time instead of rushing. If I’m feeling stressed – I’m aware of my breath and I take myself there when needed.

I am very impressed by the course. I feel mindfulness in my everyday life – mindfully playing and being with my daughter and helping her to become more mindful …… LH – Lowestoft
