“Thank You!

It is an amazing course. It is simple in concept, but all reaching in its impact.

It offers invaluable insight and tools helping in one’s unique journey”

Feedback after Lesson 6, Mixed Anxiety and Depression Course

“Thank you very much for providing the wonderful help contained within this course. It’s given me my freedom back.

Thank you so much for understanding and making my life easier and less complicated and confused. I’m a very happy lady today.”

Feedback after Lesson 6, OCD Course

“I was surprised how simple the homework was from week 1. I thought to myself, “Just deep breathing and exercise? What will that help?

Well, I have been amazed how much these two things have helped me. Exercise has been great at using up some of my extra adrenaline, and the breathing has been fantastic in helping me relax.

I find myself doing deep breathing regularly throughout the day, and it keeps me from panic and helps me sleep at night too.”

Feedback after Lesson 2, Anxiety Course

“At first, I wasn’t sure if this would work for me. I stayed with it though. Eventually, very small experiences seemed to be easier and more pleasurable, and they grew with practise.

I have had relapses, but they are much easier to control ,and don’t last as long as before.

With the great help from my clinician and this program, life is much more manageable.”

Feedback after Lesson 6, Depression Course

“Im a nurse, and I thought I understood all about what panic attacks were, what caused them, and how to help control them.

I certainly didn’t think this would ever happen to me!

I couldn’t see the woods for the trees and needed direction and reinforcement to help me…

I’m certainly getting that from this course! I do have bad days, and sometimes it’s two steps forward and one backward, but I am letting this course help and guide me. I am feeling better!”

Feedback after Lesson 2, Anxiety Course

“THIS WAY UP has taught me that I have the potential to get better control over my anxiety.

Thanks to this course, I will always have the ‘toolbox’ to prevent it from controlling me in the future.

I know now that I am in complete control of my thoughts and behaviours and that I shouldn’t let my mind control who I am, or how I deal with stressful situations.

Good Luck to you ALL!”
