I attended the beginnersí workshop in London. I was apprehensive about going, especially 5 minutes before it was due to start whilst I was sitting in my hotel room. The workshop is held in a private meeting room in the hotel and is all very discreet, no one in the hotel knows or cares why you are there as it is quite a large hotel.
Andrew and Dan immediately made me feel at ease when I arrived. There was a good bunch of guys on the course, and meeting them all made the whole thing seem a lot more normal.
There is no de-sensing on the first night, just an introduction and a couple of drinks down in the hotel bar. It did feel a bit odd talking about your problem with everyone in the hotel bar, but liberating at the same time. The next couple of days were spent de-sensing and being given additional information and tips on overcoming paruresis.
I exceeded my expectations on what I thought I could achieve by attending the workshop.
Thanks again to Andrew, Dan and Colin and also to all the guys who were on the workshop, everyone was so supportive. If you are thinking about attending a workshop then I would definitely recommend it, you will not be disappointed.
