Are you glad you started your Mindfulness Coach journey with the school, if so why?

Yes I am, I have been using mindfulness already, but this gave me a much deeper understanding and many new methods. I enjoyed the structure of the 8-week course and felt like you were really given all the resources to become a successful MBSR coach. 

Has the course reached your expectations?

Very much so, Annette Brown is a great tutor. She makes learning fun and is very warm and caring so you feel comfortable to ask any questions and speak up if you aren’t sure about something.

Do you feel you’ve grown as a person whilst being part of the course, if so why?

Yes, I have grown in confidence and it’s great to be around likeminded individuals who all have similar views and want to do good in the world.

Do you think the way it was taught was easy to understand, please expand?

Yes, Annette’s presentation is colourful and bright, full of compassion and humour. She explains things and if anyone doesn’t understand she will think up an alternative way of explaining perhaps using metaphors or imagery. She takes time to understand how each individual in the class learns and then does her best to ensure she caters to that where possible. There are also lots of practical tasks so you’re not just sitting there staring at the teacher all day, you’re doing mindfulness exercises and getting involved in discussions as a group. There are also no silly questions, so no one feels uncomfortable to ask or clarify something.

Were the course materials to your expectations?

Yes, the materials were thorough, and you leave with a good plan of how to run your classes.

Would you be happy to recommend the school to friends or family?
