Just to add my comments, and echo what Charles has already posted.
Yes, it took some nerve to commit, particularly after making some progress on my own in recent months - did I really still need to come? Well, once the practice sessions began I found the answer to be a definitive yes. I feel that the progress I have made this weekend far outweighs any perceived progress I may have made on my own, because I now understand and have a strategy to beat this. Also when I say "understand", I didn't even know there was stuff to understand before this weekend.
I must give huge credit to Andrew and Dan, who somehow made the whole weekend seem "normal", removing any anxiety I may have had within minutes. It is easy to forget this isn't their day job, such is their level of expertise and professionalism - great job guys, thanks. And the guys on the course as well, top blokes, all of them - great experience to meet and talk to others.
I mainly feel the need to write this for anyone else who might have found the site but is reluctant to do anything about it. I have been aware of the organisation for around 7 years and now wish I'd done this sooner - it was only the comments from others on here that finally pushed me over the line.
Anyway I've rambled enough...just couldn't stop once I got going
