Quotes from participants on the Friendly Spider Programme:
Since the course I can honestly say I feel like a new person. It has changed my life.I have a 9yr old daughter who I was very aware caught onto my reactions [when I first came across a spider at my house after the course], and I have been able to show her what I achieved on the day at the zoo and how I have been before. I know she will now grow up to be calm and ok around spiders. I keep replaying the videos I took that day just to remind me what a massive achievement it was. Once again, thank you!

The Friendly Spider Programme has honestly been one of the best things I've ever done...There aren't many experiences in one's life when you can say that they are truly 'life changing' but this is one of them.

It has truly changed my life. I feel in control and at ease for the first time in my life and will be forever grateful to you and the team for your hard work and commitment to the course.Sam L, 2016
Despite not coming across a spider since the FSP I find that I'm more at ease with the thought of seeing one. I don't feel like I have to check corners when walking in to rooms and I don't have a heart attack when I see a picture. Just the word 'spider' used to freak me out but I'm ok with it now. I'm still not a big fan of spiders but the FSP has made me feel so much more at ease about them and I really can't thank you enough.Tiffany J, 2016
