I feel I was so honoured to have the opportunity to be enrolled in this fabulous course with my sister. Seeing her and others, joyful and contributing to everything they were asked to get involved in. So much laughs and smiles was contagious.
Everyone was genuinely respectful and supportive to each other to which a strong friendship bond was developed amongst us all and with the wonderful caring staff.
I felt truly I felt truly valued and lucky to have had this opportunity to be part of the Rainbow valley experience and hope it’s not the last xx
I really enjoyed the whole course in general, I felt everything had its place on the course and it was well planned out. Karen Phil & Betty were fabulous and took such great care of us. Also wee Ann and the chef were fabulous. We both left on an absolute high. Thanks again.
LOVED this course. Edward was so informative but not full of jargon. He made me understand Mindfulness really easily. He has such a talent of making you feel relaxed at times, then make you cry with laughter the next!
He took time for each and every one of us and genuinely cared about how we were feeling. Just wished it was longer!
As usual, I came away feeling invigorated and loved
I have been under the cancer care umbrella for a decade now and in all that time, I have never once been given the opportunity to attend anything like the experience we had with Rainbow Valley. The time with Rainbow Valley benefited us more than all other help collectively over the last 11 years.
This course has opened my eyes to thinking about ‘ME’ putting myself first. Learning new techniques to relax feel good and have laughter in my life again. As a visually impaired person I was included in every session and facilitators took time to look after me. The only thing I could suggest is enlarge written material were possible, I am fortunate to have some very useful sight and can use a magnifier. I really enjoyed watching Dare to bare was emotional but really good to hear how these ladies had the confidence to get up and strut their stuff. Well done to each and everyone of them. I don’t know if you would consider me for this as I am feeling really confident about myself after 7 steps course. I will definitely recommend this course to others. I will speak to my managers and suggest this course for our staff. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Rainbow Valley for giving me this chance to take part in the course. Also a great big thank you to Betty she is an amazing lady helped relax me also look out for me.
