Massive thank you too everyone involved in Flourish and succeed CIC Michael Fielding for allowing me too make some of the best memories this year and giving me the guidance to make 2023 my year ❤️ here’s to 2023, this is our year! And don’t ever be apologetic for putting you first!

A few weeks ago I was in a bit of a rut with my mental health not wanting to go back to the place i had worked so hard to get out of so I decided enough was enough and totally stepped out of my comfort zone, I done something i wouldn’t of dreamed i could do and especially on my own, I walked through the doors and started my journey with the women’s mental health wellbeing boxing mindset fitness classes 🥊🥊. I can honestly say with my hand on my heart ❤️ I have never felt this good not just fitness wise but mentally too, I have met all these beautiful women who support and encourage each other every step of the way and have definitely made friends for life ❤️ a HUGE thank you to Leanne Jones, Jayne Beattie and Michael Fielding (Tosh) for being the most amazing people you are and for all the support you give absolutely love you all 💚💚🦬💪

What a beautiful morning it’s been done walk & talk and mindfulness 🧘‍♀️ with a stunning group of woman so happy I pushed out my comfort zone again and finally went 🙌🏼 all the amazing woman wrote these compliments down so I’m going to read them everyday and accept them 😘 coz I am strong and I got this more than ever ♥️

Toni

Lovely group this morning 💜 had a nice walk too and we all had to write something positive about each other. This is what the lovely ladies wrote about me. Makes me smile as living in such a busy mind its hard to appreciate the good points I have and I have always struggled with compliments but this really cheered me up and anytime I am having a bad day or self hating I will use this as a tool to respect myself more 😊 Flourish & Succeed thank you

What a gorgeous morning with the women’s mental health group, such a lovely group of women all friendly and welcoming, we done walk and talk then a mindfullness session, absolutely amazing loved every minute of it can’t wait for tonight’s fitness session.

Michelle

When you get a message like this after being in work ❤ it means so much. Helped me change my life and my familys future and I am forever going to be grateful to you Michael and the whole of Flourish and Succeed. It was lovely to see you all yesterday, even after my path has changed and I don’t get to see you all much.  To know I’m very much thought of is a huge comfort. xxx

Emma

❤ A little positive note from last year. In march, I had my cards read and she told me not to give up on music. She kept saying your a musician, don’t waste it- you need to do something with it. I shrugged it off, I’d never sang in front of anyone and hadn’t picked up a guitar in ages. In September I heard a community music group called the rock’n’roll recovery group on Stockbridge Village was starting up and just thought I’ll go and see. Such a good decision ❤ I love it, it’s nothing major but for someone dealing with a lot of mental health issues last year, coming out of work and just having my confidence knocked massively it’s been a big step forward and a huge help to be around people again. If anyone wants to join or knows someone who would like to come along it’s every Friday 1pm to 3pm , at the Craig’s community centre in Stockbridge village. 🎶🎵🎶

Emma

Thanks for last night Tosh to you and the lads. We’re all in this together. He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother! I talking through my problems last night with in the group, made me have a goodnight sleep last night!

I’m so grateful and thankful to be a part of Flourish and Succeed and so glad I found you. Looking forward to the big walk challenge in June 💪💚

Amy

Flourish & succeed has got me to the place I am today Happy from going from 3 years ago I could hardly walk out the door without having a panic attack, I have my bad days we all do but changing my mindset and learning about mental health and coping strategies has changed my life I am so grateful to Michael Fielding and proud of what you have achieved with flourish & succeed 🐃🛡❤ 3 years ago I was in a bad place and now I’m in college doing mental health and counselling to help other people.

Hillside Neighbourhood Centre L36

Tosh thanks for all your support. I’m doing great. I just started a new job in a children’s home!! Millions miles away from when you met me in my storm and I want to say thank you for listening, advising and directing me out of my storm. Couldn’t have done it without the buffalo mindset thank you. Flourish and succeed Tina x

Tina

2 years ago I was obese and lost. I’d tried every diet possible to no avail. I turned to Tosh for help. We only had one session of PT but that was the session that kicked off the whole weight loss for me. Most PTs just work on the diet and exercise, but Tosh never did any of that. He started with my mind and really dug deep to finding the source of the problem so it could be fixed instead of masking it with a load of food info and exercises, even though he killed me with the exercise too! He taught me that you cant keep continuing to run away from the source of the problem. You will only get tired from running. Face it head on like a buffalo to the storm and you will get past the problem before you run out of energy to deal with it! Now I’m at my  peak of fitness and its only going to get better. I no longer run from my problems but face them head on! If you are from Liverpool and struggling I would hand on heart recommend Tosh to help you though it! 2 years ago, 1 session and I have never looked back!

Michael

I climbed (crawled) Ingleborough middle hardest 3 peaks Yorkshire mountain. I didn’t think it would be so physical as I am petrified of heights and having to physically rock climb right next to massive drops and cliff hangings I told them to ring the mountain police and helicopters to come an get me when I was at the top as my legs didn’t feel like they could work with fear of slipping and falling of the drops!! But I did it and I am made up!!!! It’s made me want to really try an push myself an do more things that challenge me (traumatize me ha). It was a boss day and we smashed it! Thanks Flourish & Succeed family x

Sarah-Louise

If someone told me 8 months ago that I would be where I am today, I’d never have believed them! Today my mind is much healthier, I have a focus and I am capable of doing so much more than I ever thought I could. Yesterday, Sunday 3rd November 2019 I climbed Ingleborough mountain in North Yorkshire! I had my struggles but I faced them head on and made it to the top and down again safely. I had so much fun and I couldn’t have done it without my Flourish & Succeed family around me and my best friend Leanne Jones pushing me and supporting me all the way! Never give up! We can do anything together! Michael Fielding thank you!

Katie

Tosh, thank you so much for never giving up on my and always believing in me. It’s been a long 2 and a half years but I am finally getting where I need to be and the person who I should have been a long time ago is coming out now. Being surrounded by great people and all the Flourish & Succeed girls has helped me so much and I have a lot to thank them for as well as you. I am finally excited for my future and seeing what it holds and I finally know that being alive and being happy is the best thing on earth! Onwards and upwards now. Couldn’t have done it without you walking with me

Lisa

Flourish and succeed thank you all! The help I’ve had from everyone from day one has been amazing and I feel so lucky to have come across flourish and succeed. Considering how I was feeling at the time I joined, I’ve been able to grow so much in such a short space of time with all the support I’ve been given. I don’t think anyone has taught me as much as you all have and I now have the ability to do the things I’m fearful of. I’ve conquered some of them already because of that encouragement, running into storms with the buffalo mindset…. I totally get it now xx

Emma

I still can’t thank you enough for everything as you helped me through one of the darkest and hardest times of my life. I’m now better than ever and my career is going great. I’m happy, smiling and finally making choices for myself and nobody else! My shield is well and truly stronger than ever xx flourish and succeed.

Alex

Since doing the buffalo mindset session I’ve learned a lot from it. I’m working on myself by myself and for myself. It even give me courage to enrol in college an go on my own on my first day. Thank you so much!

Chloe

3 years ago this week I walked into your class just before my 18th Birthday and never thought I’d be where I am today. Thank you for everything Tosh. You have helped me get to this place where I have the most amazing people around me. I am loving Uni, my job and I’m getting asked to talk about my journey and how I’ve gotten to this point. I just wanted you to know that I wouldn’t be here without you! Thank you xxx

Lily

For anyone who feels they haven’t got hope anymore or are feeling down I have a message for you. 2 years ago I was in a ditch. I didn’t know how to cope anymore and I couldn’t see a way out due to feelings of anxiety and panic attacks. I started doing buffalo mindset training with Flourish & Succeed which completely changed life. I have gone though a lot and learnt loads about myself. I am now back in college studying mental health, counselling and family coaching so that I can go out there and help others. I am now one of the Directors of Flourish & Succeed so having my own business card is a massive achievement for me! I am so proud of how far I have come in these past 2 years. I have to work on myself every day so just remember to never give up as we all have our own paths in life!

Leanne

The Flourish & Succeed group has empowered me and given me motivation to remain positive. I feel part of a community here. Tosh evidences a commitment to supporting all the women here. He goes above and beyond, is passionate and has a strong desire to make a difference.

Sophie

The Flourish & Succeed class is helping me build my fitness in a comfortable and no judgemental group. The support everyone offers each other is empowering and this is driven by Tosh. The effects it has had on my mental health is the most noticeable. I am lucky enough to be able to include my children on the Baby Buffalo courses which allows us to spend time as family in a positive way.

Joanne

My gym, my happy place. Plus Tosh is bonkers!

Lizi

I enjoy coming to the Flourish & Succeed classes because we all have amazing days out and I am always making new friends. Tosh is always there for me if I ever need to talk.

Brooke

Love the Flourish & Succeed classes. Tosh always puts us through our paces but supports us on our journey too. The girls are all welcoming and supportive no matter what your age and fitness level.

Clare

I came to the class on a friends recommendation and loved them! What struck me most was the friendliness and support from the other girls and Tosh.

Ali

The Flourish & Succeed class has helped me from going into a very big depression. I put on a lot of weight and felt very alone. Now with the help of Tosh and all of the class I am climbing mountains and feel alive again.

Eva

Flourish & Succeed has helped me mentally and physically to enjoy life and try to stay positive.

Fiona

Really enjoy the Flourish & Succeed and Buffalo Mindset. This has helped me come so far and overcome things outdoors I have never thought I would. Brilliant community spirit.

Laura

Tosh’s classes give me a much needed kick up the backside which i’m not getting from the gym or other classes.

U. Wade

I enjoy these classes as they keep me motivated and interacting with other women. It also helps with my mental wellbeing.

K. Challis

I enjoy coming to the classes and walks as it is important for my mental health and wellbeing. The support I receive from the women has given me the confidence and strength to face the world again. Tosh is an amazing person. He puts all his time and energy into everything he does. He is a positive and inspiring person to be around. Thank you Tosh!
