"Some incredible things happened to me after I took this course. I forgave myself, and others. I was holding on to a lot of anger, and I didn't like who I was for a long time either. But now, I have accepted my situation, who I am and what I can achieve; which I have learned is a lot if I just believe in myself. This course helped me achieve this by giving me time to reflect and teaching me what I was doing to damage my own wellbeing, as well as giving me techniques to be more self-compassionate in the future. It's even made me more compassionate towards others " - Louisa, student and volunteer.

You can also read Helen's couragous story of how the will to obtain 'gold stars' and self compassion allowed her to free herself from her own wellbeing prison.
