WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY 

This has been such a reassuring course – great to know there are lots of ways I can keep my brain active and sharpen my memory.

Sue Crozier, Auckland, NZ

Very worthwhile course & well worth the few hours it takes. Lots of good new tricks to aid the ageing grey matter!

Roger Milne, NZ

I am very much enjoying my Brainfit class

Liz Hannan

I think focus-connect-rehearse says it all for me. I met a man a few days ago and he was actually admiring my bike. We ended up chatting and he told me his wife was Sue and he was Neil. Bingo!

Bevan, Auckland, NZ

It is an extremely stimulating and useful course at any age or stage.  I like the follow-up emails which remind me to keep up the things I’ve learnt.

Jane B, NZ

I am thoroughly enjoying the course and find it very beneficial, so thank you.

A. Hogan Auckland, NZ

I have recently finished a course called Brain Fit For Life with Jessie. It is the best thing I have done to improve my mind for ages and will continue to practice the mental and physical exercises I learnt. I also enjoyed meeting a new group of people, we intend to continue meeting once a month for a chat over coffee. Thank you Jessie you were great.

Robyn Wilson

“I really enjoyed the course and the calm and gentle way you led us – thank you very much.”

Riverhead class

The course was fun and well presented. I found myself looking forward to each class and was very pleased when I got the opportunity to catch up on one class that I was unable to attend at the time.

Jane
“The course has made a difference already.  Not just remembering things I need to do,  but motivation for the act of doing them.
Today I contacted 2 friends whose birthday it is. I usually remember but don’t necessarily act upon it. The relief of doing this, instead of having to remember again another day is wonderful. “
 
“You made important stuff such fun. ” 
Margaret, Feilding NZ

The things that I liked about the course:

  • Victoria’s openness and acceptance of all our comments and questions
  • The non threatening nature of the course. We weren’t required to share the results of the tasks we were set but feedback was invited. No pressure.
  • I like the content of the course. Each session was interesting. A good mix of theory about   the structure and wrking often brain and brain health. Extremely interesting. I also enjoyed the varied activities. All well presented by Victoria who invited questions and checked with us that her communication was clear and understood.
  • I enjoyed the small group size and the company of the others in the group.

There wasn’t any aspect that I didn’t enjoy. I looked forward to  attending each week and was sorry when it ended.

Kathy Hoskins

Thanks for yesterday’s ‘power hour!’ After the training, I spoke about the content with my husband and he particularly liked (as well as I) methods to learn someone’s name by taking a mental picture and making relevant associations. We will both be trying this as and when we meet new people.

Thelma, Auckland, NZ

I had an opportunity to practice remembering names at a social gathering on Friday where we met a lot of new people. Being an inquisitive person I found it easier to probe into people’s names rather than weave a story around them. For instance I was introduced to a lady called Sheryl and asked her if she was Sheryl or Cheryl. By concentrating on people’s names and repeating them as soon as possible I was able to remember most people I met, even differentiating between an Annette and a Lynette so was quite pleased.

Moyra, Auckland NZ

It is an extremely stimulating and useful course at any age or stage. I like the follow-up emails which remind me to keep up the things I’ve learnt.

Angela,

Very valuable hints to encourage healthy memory. Thoroughly enjoyable and non-threatening. Younger people need to be encouraged to take the course.

Pauline, Auckland, NZ

Very clearly presented.  Good balance between information and practice.  Most people do not know you can reverse your ‘brain loss’.

Martine, Auckland, NZ

Feel encouraged, very hopeful of improving memory.  Stimulated.  Had excellent teacher, many wonderful laughs, much to learn.

Pat

The course has been so enjoyable and it’s with real enthusiasm that I leave each week to test my knowledge.  Absolutely inspiring.  It’s like eating something delicious and wanting more.

Mary, Northland, NZ
