What my clients say
What difference has the stress program made in your life?
“Given me tools to deal with stress and anxiety. Given me more understanding of how stress affects the body”
What do you do/see now that you didn’t do/see before?
“I am learning to be kinder to myself”.
Practical Application for reducing Stress, was worth every minute of time and dollars spent. Like many other ladies, I have a busy job, three children, and a husband who also works long hours.
I have recently attended Overcome Stress and restore Balance set in an idyllic spot in the Tuki Tuki valley.
The program was a practical application for reducing stress and increasing awareness of the present.
I came to this course because I realised how stress can be so real in my life. I couldn’t always understand why I felt the stress or anxiousness I did, so I thought this course may help in that way to give me a better understanding.
I came on this course because I suffer from terrible nervousness and anxiety in my normal day to day life. I have a fear of letting people down and am generally very self-conscious.

I’m writing to offer my endorsement and support for Diane Stride’s extraordinary “Reducing Stress and Increasing Fulfillment Program”. Her wisely and carefully developed program is grounded on a solid foundation of mindfulness tools and clinical interventions and skills that have been repeatedly demonstrated in clinical research to significantly benefit a wide range of stress related diseases and conditions.
It was with a great deal of scepticism and caution that I agreed to do this course with Diane. I was however, determined to go in with a completely open mind as what do I know in the grand scheme of things and I had nothing to lose if it worked (other than a few excess pounds).
I decided to attend a mindfulness training course, after a bitter end to a long term relationship. I was devastated. Over time I have come to appreciate where responsibility lies, things I can change and things I can’t; and how to be kinder and more compassionate to myself, and others.
After having a few one on one sessions with Diane, she suggested I join her next course – “Overcome stress and Restore Balance”, as she thought I would really benefit from it……well benefit I did!!!
I am a young female running my first start up business, and I hadn't realised that I was struggling with stress until I started experiencing heart palpitations. I really wanted to learn how to identify stress and then, manage it effectively. I really enjoyed this course and loved her relaxing environment. We learnt about the brain, toxic thoughts and identifying the emotions and physical reactions within us in relation to stress.
