Life Transforming Skills to Transcend Anxiety and Stress
Relaxation for Living (RFL) was created by philanthropist and founding member of the National Childbirth Trust, Amber Lloyd.When her husband suffered an extreme heart attack in 1972 and she was forced to make significant lifestyle changes to reduce his stress levels, Amber set up RFL, the first relaxation charity in Britain.
Amber believed that the set of strategies she developed for her husband could be applied to a wider audience to combat stress and the associated health effects in everyday lives.
Although the charity no longer exists, the RFL approach endures. Amber’s practice of equipping people with the knowledge and confidence to make huge transformations to their lives remains the core philosophy, now that RFL & More has adapted to serving clients within a business model.
In 2010 Hazel Bate, a long- standing user of RFL, created Relaxation for Living & More Ltd (RFL&M).
The name has been adjusted to reflect that the company operates beyond simple relaxation and offers trainees practical and effective techniques to deal with stress and anxiety.
The RFL & More courses have been remodelled through the years and are based on the work of Amber Lloyd, Jane Madders, Laura Mitchell, Dr Claire Weekes and Alicia Ridout
