Our students say

  • The course was excellent and its contents were exactly what I needed to enable myself to improve many aspects of my physical and mental wellbeing. I feel so proud that I have achieved so much by completing this course.

  • It has really made me re think “life”… it has come at the right time, with children moving into their next stage of adulthood, it gave me “permission “ to reflect and think about myself and just “take a bit of time out”.

  • Without Step into Health I would not have made many of the changes, actually probably would not have made ANY of the changes that are now normal life. I feel so much better . I am very very grateful to you all for the new me.
