Please see the feedback from our previous information sessions from Dr Hawley that included 'Neuroplasticity and changes with exercise' and ‘Exercise - the difference between regular and functional exercise’

“Just a note to say how inspiring I found this presentation to be. Having had MS for approx 30 years. I must admit to feeling fairly sceptical that I would hear anything new. In fact, it wasn’t so much that this was all definitely new, but it was the way it was conveyed to people like me. I think it took away a continual feeling of failure and replaced it with a new mindset.” – Chris

“A really excellent presentation. Incredibly informative and made so much sense.” - Participant

“I thought yesterday's presentation was fantastic. The Dr was inspiring and enlightened me to things I've being doing not quite right for years. I certainly took a lot away from it and thoroughly enjoyed listening.” – Pam

“Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated Gretchen's talk on neuroplasticity this week. I had rather given up on exercise as not really helping me (I am in my 70's) but Gretchen's advice has motivated me to try again and try better. So, I am resuming my exercises and paying more attention to carrying them out correctly. She was spot on about the need to change one's mindset too. I do equate walking with fatigue and difficulty and should endeavour to get out of this negative thinking cycle.” – Participant
