What a great course Helping Yourself To Wellbeing is, it has been a benefit to both my professional and personal life. Each session is informative, easy to digest and fun! More people need to sign up to this course as it really will help you to think differently to create better chances for yourself in the future and it you'll be able to make practical changes straight away to help yourself and others around you.

I thoroughly enjoyed the HYWB course which was facilitated by Jim who had a teaching style which enabled all members of the group to participate and also complete the trainers section with confidence. I am looking forward to sharing this information with other members of the community as the content supports health and well being. Participants were warm and welcoming in an informal learning environment which I would highly recommend. The resources provided were in more than helpful in terms of being a participant and also for future facilitation. Thank you

I attended the HY2W course for 7 weeks and today was my final session and I can honestly say I will miss the course. The course has made realise that small changes do help overall as a person after this course I feel a better person. I met a lovely group of people who all listened to me and supported me and I will also miss them I hope they all go on to succeed in there lives. The tutor Jim I have known for a while I met him at the BEATS programme where he was really helpful in general he is a very nice person easy to talk to and always giving me the reassurance that I can do better and think positive about my life. I would certainly 100% recommend this course to anyone who is suffering physically or mentally cause in my opinion this course will make your life 100 Times better and save a life thankyou.
