Mark Simmons Testimonial
When I joined Offload I'd reached out to 2 of my closest friends for help.
I'd always had problems with balancing my drinking and my anxiety & depression. One would be under control whilst the other would control me.
Since joining Offload and meeting two people in James Howes and Russell Treasure who are amongst people who've had the biggest positive effect on my life, I am now able to control both.
Russell is one of the kindest and humblest people I have ever met. After only meeting him once he visited my wife and me at home to help us both.
He has taught me that I have to take responsibility for my actions and to stop blaming others. Though his mindfulness teaching he has allowed me to sleep at night and to be able to go back to sleep when I wake up during the night. This is something I've not be able do for longer than I can remember.
Russell has taught me to stop over thinking things and to live in the now and to stop worrying about the past and the future.The mindfulness techniques that Russell has taught me has allowed me to start to enjoy living again and to look forward to things instead of worrying about them.
I am starting to be able to control my thoughts instead of them controlling me. Whilst I understand that this the start of a long process that will take time to master, I know that I'm on the right path.
