Sara, a student at the time of writing, was on a flight back from Birmingham to Belfast when she noticed a chap sat by himself looking worried. Sara went and sat beside him and asked if she could tell him a story and that it was a good story. She then went on to talk about relaxation within this story. She also talked about closing her own eyes and he could do the same if he wished, whilst concentrating on breathing more deeply.
He relaxed nicely to the point that when Sara had finished telling her story he fell asleep!
At the end of the flight she gave him her business card of course.
Our students learn early on in the course how to relax people before progressing on to deal with anxiety issues, confidence building and all manner of other problems that people encounter. It is such a good thing to be able to relax a person, to allow them to feel better and to deal with their day or their life in a more confident way.
We love happy endings.
