What past participants have said about my courses.
“This course changed my life. That is as simply as I can put it. The techniques, skills and knowledge I learnt will forever help me through everyday life. I was able to talk in front of a large group of people the other week, something I would usually avoid, because of the breathing techniques I had learnt and by having a positive mindset and giving loving kindness to everyone there and myself – I couldn’t believe how relaxed and comfortable I had made this uncomfortable situation become. I would recommend this course to everyone; Fergus was an amazing teacher and the people in the group were lovely.” Julie
"Fergus’ mindfulness course gave me the tools and skillset to take charge of my life. It has truly changed my life and the way I deal with struggles, however, has also helped me to appreciate the good stuff more. I suffer with anxiety; the breathing exercises and meditations have definitely helped my coping with this. Anxiety no longer takes over my life. I have gained so much self-respect, everything down to what I eat has changed. I have gained a genuine want to nourish myself and do what is good for me and my life. Everyone around me has noticed a difference and says I seem a lot happier in myself. I have also learned to have patience with my practice and to forgive myself and have compassion for myself and others when mistakes are made. I have dealt with toxic relationships, I could go on, this course has truly changed my life. Thank you Fergus I look forward to your next courses." Nicole
"The course has made a huge impact in my life. From the first session, it all made sense. Practical and helpful teachings have helped me to cope better, and to live in the moment, not to dwell in the past or to worry about the future." Anonymous
"I found the course inspiring. I learnt a lot about myself, especially how powerful my thoughts can be. Through meditation I am calmer and I’m learning to manage stressful situations better. I found the gratitude journal really thought provoking and it made me think about all the positives in my daily life. The class size was just right, and the homework helped me to cultivate my mindfulness practice." Karen
"I found the 6-week Inward bound mindfulness course to be very beneficial. It is suitable for both professionals and someone looking for personal development. I learned new skills and techniques to help with the demands of a busy life, and it reinforced and enhanced what was already familiar to me. Fergus imparts and shares his knowledge in a relaxed, friendly and easy to understand way. I would highly recommend this course." Sharon
"I would highly recommend this course. I was very anxious about going from the start. But from the moment you walk into the room, Fergus makes you feel welcome and at ease. Everything is explained clearly and at a pace that is not rushed. So, Fergus has no problem going over anything again. Before you start any meditations, you clearly understand why you are doing them, and why you are doing that particular meditation. The 6 weeks flew by. I never realised how much I actually needed the course until I was doing it. I will continue to practice mindfulness and meditation going forward." Tereasa
