BGL 101 totally changed my life, it is 100% the best decision I’ve ever made! Before BGL101 I had been dealing with a painful sense of loneliness and was at times verging on suicidal and depressed. Now, I no longer struggling with loneliness, I’m so much more calm and balanced in my moods and I can see now how much more positive I am.


The full story:

I can say BGL 101 totally changed my life… This is definitely something that should be taught in schools!

100% the best decision I’ve ever made :)

Before BGL101 I had been dealing with a very painful sense of loneliness my entire life and was at times verging on suicidal and depressed – at the time I had begun to lose all hope completely that anything would ever change or feel any better. I felt as though I could see people all around me making meaningful and deep connections and friendships and I was always left on the outside – alone.

I had a friend recommend the Project Self Facebook page so had been following the posts for a month or two, when I saw one saying course prices were going up!! That was the tipping point to book in the free Skype chat just to see what it was about.

Bloody Good Life 101 has completely changed my life, from the first free chat with Andrea I regained the hope that I had lost.

I felt the positive effects instantly just knowing that Andrea understood what I was going through and had such confidence that things could definitely be turned around.

I no longer struggling through painful loneliness or wondering why I’m always the one left out, instead I’m seeing a lot more positivity and doing some amazing fun things that I love.

Since starting the course my life/attitude/relationships/confidence all of the above has totally changed.

I believe it was a whole shift of focus through the BGL101 tools and techniques that allowed me to overcome self perpetuating (very subtle but very negative) thought patterns. I realised straight away that without even focusing on it I had begun to make those real connections with the people around me that I was so desperate for beforehand.

I can deal with my emotions so much easier now and feel like I understand, recognise and accept them instead of being driven by them (which no one ever taught me how to do before, I didn’t even know it was an option!!), which had been causing serious issues in the past.

I’m so much more calm and balanced in my moods. I can see now how much more positive I am.

Andrea is an incredible woman who is extremely relatable, insightful, genuine, inspiring and just a cool person in general.

I really liked the fact that Andrea was able to convey complex things like ‘mindfulness’ in a very relatable way, she takes it in manageable steps which makes it much easier to understand. I loved that she explained the physiology behind things which helps put it into perspective and makes the tools easier to understand and utilise.

I noticed that the most incredible guy jumped in my life literally a week after I finished the course… coincidence…… hmm??? haha

Gidday, I'm Andrea

I'm a mindfulness advisor and former cynical pessimist.

I used to be an awkward, pessimistic, mediocrely happy overachiever.

Life looked good on the outside, but on the inside things were average.

I was indecisive, I didn't know what to do with my life, I self-sabotaged the hell out of my relationships.

I had a feeling I was going to keep f-ing things up for myself unless something radical changed.

The life handbrake-turn that followed over the next few years came as the result of learning what I now teach in Bloody Good Life 101. Just practical, relatable techniques without any rainbow and butterfly jibber jabber.
