Here's what a former student says about the course:


“Thank you Carmel Farnan  - I was a terrible worrier about future events and also held a lot of guilt inside. This caused a lot of troubles and left me suffering with stress, anxiety and I was unable to sleep. After attending Carmel's course I am now a changed person. I can concentrate and I now live in the present. I have the ability to be with what's happening right now in my life, not the presentation that I'm due to give in a few days time, or whether I can meet my monthly mortgage commitment.
