Feedback from 5 week IIY Classes
'I absolutely loved the classes. I suffer on and off with health anxiety and it was bad at the beginning of the course and now I have noticed a huge improvement in a short time.'
'Marie, I would like to thank you for the energy you have allowed me to achieve, my way of thinking and everyday living. I thoroughly enjoyed the 5 weeks. I am looking forward to listening to the CD and hopefully we will see each other in class soon’
It was wonderful. I feel so relaxed. I'm trying to put everything to use. I would love to do the same again. Thank you Marie, you are a wonderful teacher.
Very insightful, fulfilling, promising and relaxing course. Allows you to switch off from all worries for the hour each week. Great teacher who connects very well with group. Delighted to have taken the course. I feel like I am living a better day to day life allowing my mind/body to take time for myself. Thank you Marie!
I really enjoyed the classes. It was an effort to get here each week but I decided that it was worth it!! I've learned a lot and gained lovely techniques to deal with the challenges of daily life. I would highly recommend it to other people.
Very good and very powerful. Has made me re-think a lot of thinks/issues. Week 4 technique was amazing, (The IIY Technique) the tears flowed. The next day was very strange and very emotional. I would highly recommend, would listen to you talk for hours! Thank you.
Love it. Really look forward to it every week. My partner says I'm acting different. I feel more positive and use "white light". I'm happier. My children are happier.
I found the course very interesting. Its nice to know that we can empower ourselves to make change. It was also extremely relaxing. From the first week I have felt more positive. I look forward to learning the technique. (The IIY Technique - week 6).
Time really to invest in myself - time out, able to switch off for at least an hour. Learned good relaxation techniques. Enjoyed it.
Very good, interesting, relaxing. Can deal with stress and problems better.
Really very good. It helped me a lot. Very glad I did it, look forward to the next class, next week. (to learn the IIY Technique).
I really enjoyed the 5 week course. The book recommendation were excellent. I will definitely use the techniques for healing etc. Thanks for all the help and advice.
Really enjoyed the course. I found it has opened my eyes and life to a happier life. Following the relationship week, my relationship with my (teenage) son improved within a few days and he opened up and changed for the better - showing his feelings.
I was very relaxed. Very enjoyable. Got into myself. Would recommend it very much.
I am shocked at how much I enjoyed it. I thought it was excellent. It has totally changed my train of thought. This course has helped me and made me look at my life in a more positive way. I would totally recommend this course to friends and family. Thank you Marie.
I just thought it was so fabulous. Thoroughly enjoyed it and got so much from it. I always knew you can change things in your life, now I feel like I know how. Its life changing stuff.
I thought it was brilliant. I would love to do it again and any further courses. Many thanks.
It opened my mind again to many possibilities. Very relaxing. The meditations are so relaxing, very positive, very insightful. Thank you :-)
I really enjoyed the 5 weeks. Have been slowly trying to use the affirmations and the "tricks" to allay anxiety and fear etc. Have found myself feeling much more positive, especially regarding work and the future. Many thanks Marie.
A Joy. I loved every minute and Marie you are very good at what you do. I would love to do more courses so keep in touch.
Really enjoyable. Felt that it benefitted me greatly, helped me to appreciate the now. Great tips and techniques for help deal with things I had worried about. Marie you have a lovely way of talking and passing on your knowledge.
Very enjoyable. Feeling much calmer, happier and accepting. I can now control my mind more and use some of your little tricks daily... I am definitely living in the moment more.
Brilliant course. To get to take time to yourself, getting you into a different way of thinking.... stop negative thoughts before they progress any further.
I find myself a lot less stressed. I am able to deal with stuff in a much calmer way: kids/work colleagues/partner. I found this course fantastic. I would highly recommend. I also found Marie totally inspirational and such a lovely person. :-)
This is my first time to invest in my self. I have learnt so much from you. The class, tips, advice and knowledge you gave us is amazing. Didn't want it to end. I would do the course back to back, it is amazing.
"I would recommend it, and have done already, to friends in my life who are stressed out and a bit low as it helps."
I have developed an understanding of life, and taking time out and care of myself. I can make my life and others around me better and calmer. ..... my thinking has changed since I started my Invest in YourSELF classes and I look forward to the first Wednesday of every month.
I feel much more relaxed, chilled and energised after attending. I was not giving myself enough "me time" and also holding on to past hurts and annoyances. I can now let go and move on ....... (I am) more assertive and delegate more.
Invest in YourSELF is "the tonic" that every man, woman and child should avail of. If only we could bottle it! Thank you Marie.
The programme helps me to be a better person for me and the people whom I come into contact with. It gives me a sense of understanding my life's difficulties. Thanks a million Marie.
(I get an) unexplainable sense of relaxation. Greater control of my thoughts and emotions. I find the sessions very rewarding. I look forward to them every month.
I need my monthly IiY treatment to keep me focused and help with whatever life throws at me. ... I feel better afterwards - more positive attitude, more relaxed, more confidence.
I have learnt to relax more and I feel much better. I would not be a person with much confidence but this has helped me a lot.

More Class Testimonials.
I really loved the course. Each week brought something new. Even though I knew some things already it was a great way of getting them deeper into my knowing. I look forward to the next course! You have a lovely energy and were very open to questions etc. I found that your teachings really come to life and made sense through the stories of your experiences.
I feel more in touch with my emotions, less inclined to get involved with other people's emotional issues. I can acknowledge and recognise what behaviour is not acceptable: to be more calm with my children and husband - to stand back and think before reacting.
Thank you for this audio - I have used your IIY Technique for toning and general fitness and had amazingly fast results. I have slimmed down with no effort in a very short time. This is excellent! - Thanks for sharing the love!
I like the way the Technique can help me deal with any obstacles that come up. I am definitely more positive - not as fearful or put upon. It has made a big difference.
The venue and the therapist are excellent.
I've been feeling a lot more positive in the last few days and that's mainly because I know that I have a technique that I can turn to every day but even the releasing affirmation is a Godsend
It is simple and easy to understand. I am ready to let go more to my Higher Power. People like to be around me.
Recharging physically, mentally and spiritually. I have learned that I have a need for spiritual growth and that I must learn to trust that life will be good to me and my family.
Also Marie, thanks for your positivity!!
It has helped me to become more positive and live for the moment and get rid of the past, and has helped me really deal with my past."
"I have found the workshop has made me feel very relaxed and has made me think more about myself. It has made me think more clearly. Be a stronger person".
I have learned that I can relax. I can stop my mind from filling with all kinds of thoughts. I feel ready to start my month afresh each time I leave the programme. I look forward to going each month.
