See how some of our seminar and workshop attendees have responded to their training.
Doing the ‘We Talk About Sex’ retreat with John and Annie was one of the most important things we’ve ever done for our growth as a couple. From the moment we arrived we found ourselves in what can only be described as a deeply sacred and safe space. Both John and Annie have an incredible ability to put you completely at ease even when discussing and sharing the most personal and vulnerable parts of your life.
With their support, we were able to share things with each other and experience pleasures with each other that we would never have thought possible beforehand. The guidance we received over the week completely transformed our way of love-making and having the space to learn and explore a new way to make love was deeply nourishing for our relationship.
We started the retreat with our individual anxieties and concerns about the performance and “results” of our sex life together and left completely freed from all of that. Learning this new slow and soulful way of making love has deeply enriched both our physical and emotional connection as a couple. Once we left the retreat, we never had sex the old, fast and disconnected way again and continue to enjoy the benefits of what we learned on our retreat.
More than just the transformation of our sex life, over the course of the week, we grew as a couple in all ways and as individuals, both personally and spiritually. I truly believe that every couple should gift themselves the space to do this important and highly enjoyable work with John and Annie, who are two of the most wonderful teachers we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
What a blessing that was for us, truly. I think anyone lucky enough to go through a similar process will get the same huge benefits we did.
We still practice what you taught us and have never even considered going back to the old way of making love.
John and Caroline
I want to tell you and Annie how much I enjoyed the all-day workshop which you ran. It was very interesting and gave me an entirely new slant on relationships. Your presentations were stimulating and you encouraged people to participate, which they most certainly did. Both of you gave excellent presentations and the day just flew! What came through very clearly for me was your philosophies of life, strongly focused on forgiveness. I can highly recommend your workshops and know that whoever attends will come away having a deeper understanding of their relationships and how they can improve them. Thank you John and Annie for an inspiring day!

On 29th December 2014 I attended a one-day workshop on the Art and Science of Loving Relationships which was jointly presented by Dr Anne Moir and John Campbell. I was enriched by the experience. It was a delight. What became apparent was that Anne and John had achieved a high level of rapport which clearly illustrated the workshop material they presented. I got the impression that they are two people who practice what they preach. From early on in their relationship, clear and honest communication became a key aspect of their close bond. They described their relationship as conflict free, by making use of the tools that they teach, namely, taking responsibility for their issues, emotions and feelings, without resorting to the common coping strategies in relationships, namely, blaming and shaming. As the day progressed they highlighted that each of us can achieve the same level of awareness and functioning in our relationships by remaining positive, living in gratitude, being conscious moment-by-moment and making “love” the centre of our focus.
Through their skilled facilitation, they achieved a high level of openness and sharing amongst group members in a short space of time. Each of the participants was encouraged to express their own feelings, issues and traumas surrounding relationships, and John and Anne were able to respond with wisdom.
It was a wonderful reminder to be told that I am responsible for everything that is happening “on the inside” and that nothing “on the outside” can affect my inner peace and calm once I realize this, and choose to put it into practice.
I left the workshop feeling wiser, ready to practice these skills in my personal life, having been reminded of the presence of grace.

The atmosphere and facilitators were really lovely, thank you, thank you, thank you.
Thank you for the wonderful work you are doing. You truly ‘serve humanity’ providing a powerful living example of what love is really all about – and the way I suspected it was all along!
I have enjoyed the course and today has made me aware and created a desire to learn more. To dig a bit deeper. To let go of trying to control and please people.
Thank you for an insightful day. For sharing your journey and giving me hope.
A very worthwhile day and I am very pleased that I attended. The day has opened my mind & made me more aware of challenges in my life which I need to overcome. Wonderful day! Thank you very much!
You are both amazing individuals and as a couple. It has been an honour to meet and spend time with you. I loved the way you presented the seminar together. It is inspiring.
I appreciated the facilitation and level of honesty and care of John and Annie; two authentic and aware human beings. Wonderful role models. Thank you so, so much..
Thank you to John and Annie, Mark and all the beautiful people who shared. I am a dreamer – just imagine!

John & Anne are the most amazing couple. They are loving, intuitive, knowledgeable and bring a combined experience that makes any workshop or training course they deliver fun and transformational. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I was a delight to have John join us at Sligo Rovers FC, I certainly enjoyed his company and continue to marvel at his teachings. So many players and staff have mentioned how much they enjoyed meeting John and having him around the Club. He has had a hugely positive effect on so many people here at Sligo Rovers FC.
If you don’t yet work with a mind coach I recommend you consider starting now and I can highly recommend John Campbell who has been an inspiration to me personally and to many others!

I first came across John Campbell when I played professional football with Sligo Rovers FC, in the Republic of Ireland. We were introduced to John as a squad by Manager & Assistant at the time Ian Baraclough & Gary Stevens.
I found the work that John provided on a 1-1 was in particular a benefit to myself, he came in to the club at the time of our Champions League game with Molde & our FAI Cup Final game v Drogheda United at the Aviva stadium Dublin.
Some of the tools John provided mentally were just fantastic. And I found these very useful to myself especially going into such big games. I remember using some of the visualisation tools provided going into the two games. I remember John talking to me privately about scoring the winning goal in the Cup Final and how I would react/feel celebrating it. I visualised the game over and over again and the feelings were just surreal thinking what if I did score the winning goal, and we won the trophy. The week before the game itself at the Aviva I dreamt on 2 separate occasions about scoring the winning goal, I had conversations with John up to the day of the game and to this day still use the skills provided.
What happened in the Cup Final?….We won the game 3-2 I scored the winner exactly as John and I had visualised together.

Anyone wanting to use John to exercise their thoughts and mental state he’s someone I would most definitely recommend without hesitation. John has helped me in so many different ways mentally not only with football but in my private life also, John also sends out a free positive ‘Thought For The Day’ on emails and I find this very positive going into the day. To this day I still use John moving forward.

John Campbell is an inspiration to everyone he meets. I have not come across anyone as gentle, yet so strong; he has a wonderful gift for putting people at ease. John is an exceptional speaker, motivator and mentor and his positive energy is infectious. Selfless and passionate about his work, he is a fantastic example of how conscious thinking can take you to new heights, regardless of what you may have done in your past. John’s work will bring so much to those fortunate enough to meet him on their path in life.

John’s positive drive and understanding has given me invaluable insights into my relationships and also in my work as a professional footballer. Through his courage, knowledge and wisdom I have achieved so much. Thank you John; you’re a very special person.

After my first session with John I felt that I was flying. The new insights and knowledge I gained lifted my spirits and deepened my understanding of how this teaching can be of great use to coaches and players at all levels. John’s teachings are so beyond anything I’ve experienced before – and so simple to understand. They will improve every area of my life.

I am very fortunate, running an International organisation, in that I meet many people who are committed to helping others change for the better. Of those people, some have a real skill for inspiring others to change. Of those few, some in turn have a gift to actually affect a great deal of change in the world. John Campbell is one of these rare people.
– Co-Founder together with Serena Gordon, of The Hoffman Institute
Simply put, working with John has changed my life. His warmth, wisdom, humor and abilities as a coach make for a coaching relationship that had the power to truly transform my life. John helped me to see my blind spots, unhelpful patterns and outdated beliefs with gentle kindness at the same time as always reminding me to celebrate my successes, however small. Even when John was challenging me to grow, I always felt that he was completely on my side, not doing the work for me but cheering me on from the side-lines. That support and encouragement allowed me to make changes that I don’t believe I otherwise would have made in such a short period of time. John is a true gift to be treasured.
Visionary and passionate, John Campbell walks his eloquent talk. His inspirational voice will surely help lift education in all forms to the next evolutionary level.

John is one of those amazingly wise people. If you are fortunate enough to encounter him in your life you can consider yourself truly blessed. Unusually John is wise not because he has studied, although he has, and not because he has contemplated, although he does. John is wise mainly because he has done it; he has felt the pain and has grown as a result of the decisions he has made as a result of his experiences.

I have had the unique opportunity of working with John, both through the Hoffman Process and a workshop which we co-facilitated. John is one of those few special people that I have met in my lifetime that has that unquenchable desire to “Walk his Talk”, to live life authentically and to relentlessly ‘weed out his own garden’ so his brilliance can shine like a beacon to all those who come into contact with him. For those of you who have seen and heard John speak, you will have felt the warmth, the wisdom and the calming influence that his presence brings.

You are living examples of the words you speak.
Have you ever been in a gym running on a treadmill? You look to your left and 10 people are doing the same, you look to your right and again 10 more people are doing the same. No matter what speed you go you don’t seem to get anywhere, there are no results. You try and you try. The odd person seems to get ahead and you think ‘How? Why? What do they have that I don’t. I have been on that same treadmill, run that same marathon but to produce nothing, whether it has been personal or business. I was making the same mistakes time and time again! One day when I least expected it, I met John Campbell. Two years on, I AM the other person everyone wants to be, or know my secret to my success. My Business changed completely, my personal life gets better and better. All by this one person who helped me without me even realizing it. I started to believe in…..me. John you have helped me believe in me again and I am truly thankful. I am not the person I was two years ago, I am a better version of me.
