What was the most important thing you learned?
“That I need not be slave to my emotions. That I am capable of controlling my feelings through a heightened understanding of them”
“Bill has been a mentor and a friend who had enabled me to take charge of my life and my feelings and I can’t thank him enough”. (Young man Aged 22, 2020)
“This course has made life calmer and clearer … Less stressed out/not angry/but kinder/less emotional all the time I can appreciate things and enjoy each moment I am in” (Young Person 2017)
” I would highly recommend one-2-one sessions with Bill … At school it has made me feel more relaxed, less stressed, with my family it has made me feel less worried,” (Young Person August 2017)
The 1-2-1 was “eye opening and nourishing … the course exceeded my expectations”. “Bill taught me more than I thought I was ever capable of achieving […] I have learnt to believe in myself more and not to put myself down like I have so much in the past […] I have been more open with my family and friends and found it easier to speak to them about my feelings and thoughts”. “I would highly recommend this course” (Young Woman October 2017)
“I learned that it is ok to feel the way that I am feeling, I don’t need to try and analyse it or find a reason as to why I am feeling that way. I can just acknowledge the feeling and move on. The feeling does not define me or make me who I am … Bill was compassionate, empathetic, warm, open all the things required to put me at ease in order to fully open up and participate in the course in order to make it beneficial to me”
“I honestly can’t thank you enough for the help and support that you have provided during the mindfulness course. I was a little pessimistic at the beginning to be honest. However, I can honestly say that out of everything that I have tried over the years this course has been the first thing that I have genuinely felt has made a difference and can physically feel a benefit from. I will continue to use the exercises and techniques learnt and I hope to continue to feel the benefit of it” (Young Woman December 2017)
