I started the Mindfulness course when I was alcohol dependant and during the course I successfully completed a medically assisted home detox as part of my ongoing recovery. I had already tried going to AA and CA meetings for support, but couldn’t relate to them as they seemed quite religion based, which didn’t feel right for me.
However, this course has helped me massively as it has taught me coping mechanisms to deal with underlying depression, anxiety and urges to resume drinking.
My partner also did the mindfulness course and it has helped strengthen our relationship enormously, as we have grown together in self awareness, honesty and forgiveness of each other.
I was very apprehensive before the first session, but within minutes was made to feel at ease, with no pressure to share my thoughts and feelings, unless I felt comfortable doing so.
Thank you for helping me turn my life around in a more positive direction.
