“The man who, having abandoned all desires, goes onward without attachments, free from selfishness and vanity attains peace.”
 
Bhagavad Gita (5th-2nd Century BC)


Where do I start?? 

I am writing this today, a different woman. I first heard of Reach through someone who had been going for a number of years to see Judith. I didn’t believe that even with Reach's help that I could get better, as I’d had depression and major anxiety for about a year before hand. I’d had enough of feeling how I did, and knew that this wasn’t the person I once was. A lot had gone on in my life but these feelings had come from the unknown and I didn’t like feeling how I did and thought I had no way of getting out of it.
 
I stopped going out and became a recluse, hiding from my friends, giving up my hobbies and becoming estranged from my family and myself. I didn’t know who I was anymore. After calling and calling Judith nervously, wondering what Reach was about, I received a voicemail message back saying I was welcome to go along, and after arranging a time and day, my first session was here.
 
I’ve never looked back! I can honestly say that without Judith’s help, patience, advice and care I probably wouldn’t be the person I am today. I wouldn’t have been able to find myself again! And after many hurdles and set backs I am still here and better than ever! Week by week I felt and realised I was getting better and better and those horrible, anxiety-ridden, life wrecking feelings were subsiding.
 
I got through self-harming, a bad break up with my ex-partner and coming out as being gay and so many other issues that had piled themselves onto me which had made me feel like this in the first place. Without the work I am doing, perseverance, dedication and enjoyment I wouldn’t feel how I do! HAPPY! I’m my own woman now. I’m still on the path of learning to love myself, though this has MAJORLY improved.
 
I’m no longer full of sadness and anxiety, I look forward to everyday of my life and I have found so many new things and joys about myself that I cherish! I am a completely different woman who has gone from hating herself and hiding from the world to enjoying my own company and being as flamboyant as I am!! :)
 
I’d like to thank Judith from the bottom of my heart for ALWAYS listening, no matter what; for always being a phone call away and for her complete honesty, love and warmth.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit.”
 
Aristotle (384BC – 322BC)
 


My journey with Reach has been like a beautiful romance that has lived up to everything it promised. The idea of falling in love with oneself seemed alien to me - new age nonsense to be frank. I now find myself eating humble pie. I have learned over the last year that to love oneself is not only possible but is absolutely necessary. I now feel I have some of the tools to sustain this romance. Who knows, I might even go on to find some one to share this with. For now I’m just enjoying the ride. Thank you, Easton – for keeping your word.

Standing In The Slipstream of Success

I am standing in the slipstream of success...

Everything I need will come and find me....

I need not worry or panic...

It's flowing in and around me...

Everything I need is in front of me...

I learn from all my experiences and move forward...

My life is wonderful just as it is...

Every day in every way I'm getting stronger and stronger...

Everything I need comes to my door...

My heart is full...

My mind is full...

I want for nothing...

I'm standing in the slipstream of success...

"Our greatest experiences are to be found in our quietest moments."

Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)



I still can’t quite believe how much my life has changed. Once I got my head around the idea of ‘doing the work’, having procrastinated for months, I haven’t looked back. At times it feels like I’m flying! Thank you Jo for your tireless patience and invaluable wisdom. There’s still some way to go I know but the most beautiful thing is that I also know I will get there. I’m not afraid anymore. There are so many beautiful catch phrases I’ve picked up and made my own like: ‘you’re not defined by your mistakes, it’s how you respond to them that counts’, ‘application is the key’, and ‘courage sets you free’. If you’re thinking of taking this journey, then don’t hesitate. Although it can be challenging, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but the parent of all others.”

Cicero (106BC – 43BC)



As some one who spends a lot of time on the net, I just wanted to say I love the site, love all the freebies and I particularly love the way that your philosophy hangs together. This idea of integration and holism is new to me. I certainly want to explore it further. The more I read, the less I feel I know, which is strangely reassuring as I’m comforted by the insights. Keep up the good work. I’ll stay in touch

Contributions Page introduction....

Reach began its unique way of working in 1990. Since that time we have touched literally thousands of people’s lives through our individual work, work with couples, families, groups and countless workshops. We have produced in that time 100s of written resources and over 30 audio and visual recordings and these have travelled across the world, largely driven by personal recommendation. They have also brought immeasurable change to many. On these pages is a snap-shot of what people have thought, felt and gained from their therapeutic contact with us via the various media we offer.

Also included on this page are some inspirational thoughts and writings from those clients, borne of their personal journeys with Reach.  We've also added insightful quotes from some of the great minds both past and present.

We hope you too will be inspired....
