Where do I start? Eileen I found to be empathetic, professional and refereshingly direct, I enjoyed the trust and sharing in the group.
Being challenged by Eileen - I found very beneficial - enforcing the "doing for me "
I will carry this course with me in the future.
This course was a Big WOW Inspired so much by Eileen. Hope to hold onto all my tools, focus positively and keep on going. Soften, the most inspiring word I have to hold on to Thank you whole heartedly.
No words could explain what I got from this course, I went from having a crawling feeling to a positive confident relaxed and upright person. Thank you Eileen, I am now my own friend, a person to be proud of.
Great Course - Very Constructive - Sense of Direction - Great Tutor.
Very enjoyable course. Found it helpful with confidence, self-esteem, listening and decision making. Facilitator very good-kept one motivated at all times, without one feeling pressurised.
Definitely recommend this course to others.
Facilitator excellent - got good ideas on how to deal with worry and stress, also to think of my own self worth and not be so hard on myself and unforgiving. Be careful when communicating with others ie: to listen - be careful with the tone and body language.
Facilitator very professional, she had good interaction with the group, very educational. Made me more self aware, and brought new perspective to certain aspects of my life ie: the power of positive thinking and pointers for setting goals.
I feel for a long time I have had a hunger to nourish my emotional and mental well-being. Being on this course started this, and has given me real-life tools to continue on outside the course. I wish everyone was open to this enrichment of themselves and that the course was available to those who wished to get involved.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Got a lot from both yourself and the other participants. Made me think a lot about "me" and helped me to focus and hopefully get things that I wish to do. Brillant facilitator - thanks a mill.
I highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to change their thought process, attitudes about themselves, coping skills and challenging change in themselves for the better.
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" I wish I had courses like this 50 years ago. What a difference it would have made! Still better late than never.
I feel much better aware and I think that I can do what I want
Made me think about what decisions I make in life and why I want to do certain things. Made me aware of my emotional reactions to parts of my everyday life, and to Stop - Relax - Breath and Reflect.
Very enjoyable and although have at various stages of my career explored these topics, it was good to revisit. I learnt to not assume that people know what I want and try to think before I speak. The group discussions were very well facilitated allowing everyone to speak as, and when they felt able.
Eileen I thought this course was very enlightening, you were a great facilitator and I found myself looking forward to coming every week. Good luck and hope to do another course with you.
I really ernjoyed this course, sorry it is finished. Found Eileen very good - felt she gave everyone equal time to share - which is very rare in groups. Was delighted that I faced my challenge to sing. Would never had the confidence before doing this course. There was a great sense of safety in the group. Able to share worries and concerns from the beginning.
Eileen I enjoyed the course - very good common sense approach.
I think it was a super course - very explanatory. Most importantly I thought was building self awareness. Very important how you express yourself - your demeanour how to gain confidence - meet any challenge. Thank you Eileen enjoyed it very much.
I loved every minute of this course, the best decision I have made, to do something for myself by choosing this course. I only wish it went on for a longer length of time. I would definitely recommend this course, in fact there are plenty of people I know who should take this course. Eileen is wonderful, great listener and the group of people were fantastic. Thank you, can't say enough good things.
My sister put my name down for this course and I am really glad she did as I really enjoyed it, I found out a lot about myself and was able to speak out in front of everyone as before I would be really shy. Very interesting and very enjoyable, would highly recommend it 10/10.
I found this course a life changing experience for me.
I understand more about myself now, and I feel I have more self-esteem now than I have had in my whole life so far. My confidence has increased 100% and I hope to be able to continue like this into the future.
I loved this course so much and would thoroughly recommend it. Especially for those with young children. I do think it would make anyone's life much easier to cope with. Sorry it's over as Eileen was so nice and easy to listen to and very understanding.
I really enjoyed the course. I got a lot from it. It has made me think a lot more about myself, my strengths and weaknesses. I'm much more aware of myself I've learned so much about self-awareness. I've been using a lot of stuff in my everyday life that I've learned in the course.
It really made me think deeply about myself, both good and bad ways that I can improve my confidence. It was great interacting with the group and listening to their views. I would recommend it to women who had maybe been in the house and need to gain confidence.
I have enjoyed this course very much, I think I can now manage my life better, I feel better about myself and would be better able to do things I would never thought of doing before. I would recommend this course to anyone. Thanks to all involved in putting the course together.
Right from the start of doing this course on Personal Development, I was made more self-aware of my feelings and aspects of my personality. It has given me the courage or should I say - kick-up the backside to start my own group. I am now able to reflect and think carefully about where and what I am saying and doing with my life and family. Thank You
Found the course very good. It made me think a lot about the way I am, I found a big difference in myself from the beginning of the course and at the end. I don't feel bad, feeling good about myself - if that makes sense. I would take a lot from this and make it an ongoing thing.
I commenced the course really not knowing what it was all about. I feel I have gained self-confidence. I am able to speak out more now and feel I am as important as the next person. I thought our tutor was excellent, she listened to what we had to say and took all on board. She allowed us to think things out for ourselves also.
Because of the confidential nature of the work- Testimonials are not published with the names, but held on file.
I found this course very interesting and challenging which made me think on how my life is going, as I found I was stuck in a rut. It has given me an insight on how to overcome obstacles in my life and to manage to turn them around for the better. I also found it very positive and it is good to have a positive in your life.
I have a lot more confidence in myself since I started this course. I never thought I could speak out among a group of people that I never met before. I feel more relaxed, that I am not the only one with problems, everyone has something in their lives that causes them hardships. I'm glad I did this because I will speak out more.
This course taught me to be aware of my feelings and thinking more - recognising them. Try to turn them around to be better. It was very interesting and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It has lifted me and the way I see myself.
When I came the first day I didn't know what to expect but it had been the most uplifting experience I have had. I definitely have changed and grown as a person. Meeting new people sharing experiences - it was life changing. An awful pity it was so short - I would love to do more.
I have enjoyed the course, I have learned a lot of techniques that I use now in my daily life, especially the one about limiting thoughts. I used the technique where I write down my negative thought and change the thought to a positive. I found this very beneficial, because before I would have churned the negative thoughts around in my head for hours and not been able to sleep. Now I look forward instead of backwards. Thank you Eileen for all your help and will do another course if it comes up.
This was time out for myself that I looked forward to weekly. Even though I covered some of what was done, it was a great refresher course and I tend to fall into bad ways ie: procrastination and need to reevaluate myself on a regular basis. The company was great - proving to be honest and I had a lot in common - good to know I am not alone in how I feel and view life. A great way to have a good look at myself and assess how things really are and not how I imagine them to be. Very grateful for the time and information I got.
I can now change my thoughts around to make positive thoughts.
Look at ways on how I can make positive changes in my life by thinking positively. I would like to say I was very emotional at the 1st session. The questions that I had to reflect on were very hard as I have lost my Husband and Mum in the last one and a half years. Over the course I have taken with me positive feelings and emotions that will help me move forward in my life.
I would definitely recommend this course. Eileen has a lovely style, but is challenging. Not just airy fairy theory - she gave us homework so we could practice the skills discussed.
Self Awareness is the key to this course. It makes you take a good look at yourself, but not in a harsh way.
The main reason for doing this course was to perhaps come together with others who may feel they were lacking in self-esteem or confidence. It was a great group and everyone was very sensitive and compassionate in listening to others. Courses like these are important to let us know that we are not alone and everyone had personal issues. Not everyone in life is confident and vocal, so it's important for everyone to search for something like this. Eileen has a great approach in delivering the course. Really enjoyed it.
I enjoyed every week of the course, it was very interesting and we learned new skills. So this is the last week of the course and I will miss it. I would love to do another like this and would recommend the course to my friends. Excellent experience.
Much more self-aware of how I think and don't think, how I react to things. More self-confident - able to try new things, more self-contained.
I would recommend anyone this course - even for a younger age group - as well as any age. It says it as it is. Thanks to you Eileen.
