1) “I did not believe that this was going to be any good. After reading the first few pages I was still dubious. However, after completing the book and having had time to reflect on it I can safely say that for a such an unimposing book it has been really useful, not only for combating stress but for understanding it as well. Should be read in every modern office. Recommended.” (JM, Southampton)

2) “I Cannot recommend this book enough. It really resonated. I liked the ‘no nonsense’ attitude, e.g. ‘this is what it is – this is what you can do about it’, with very little psychobabble!!! If you’re just an ordinary person trying to get along and depression has all but wiped you out, this is for you. (AD, Edinburgh)


“I bought a Relaxation CD and am delighted. Please may I have another for a friend?” (WMB, Fordingbridge, Hants)
“For 18 months I have suffered intense pain from Fibromyalgia. I was in despair because I felt I had lost control of my life. A few weeks ago I obtained a copy of ‘Coping with Pain’. At last I feel this has given me a chance to control the pain instead of it controlling me” (Anne T, Northumberland)
“Coping with Pain is wonderful” (Lesley S, Bath)
“The Bereavement CD is marvellous. Its made me feel I am not alone@ (PL, Weymouth)
“I have recommended “Feeling Good” to my friends and some have already ordered their own copies. Its full of practical advice and very helpful.” (JE, Manchester)
“I suffer from panic attacks and agorophobia. The Coping with Anxiety programme is the only one that helps me relax” (MB, Cheshire)
