"As I'm towards the end of my vet career I wish I'd had access to this much earlier on, it would have helped so much in dealing with difficult cases and stressful times. Instead I blundered through! I think all new graduates or final years, likely too busy though, could do with this course. Mike is a brilliant presenter and it all made sense"
"Really enjoyed the course again this year and feel it has helped me to step back and assess day-day activities in a more engaged manner"
"Been doing this along with my non-vet partner each week. We have both found mindfulness very helpful and feel less stressed in our daily lives and more thankful for the time we spend together. (Rather than constantly worrying about going back to work etc.)"
"The Mindfulness series came at the perfect time for me, as I had been struggling with stress at work and home for too long. I cannot believe the difference the course has made to all aspects of my life. I have been recommending it to everyone in my practice. Thank you so much."
