Stress, Relaxation and Depression

Dear Barry,

I have now watched "Calmer By The Water" and thought it was lovely - very relaxing to watch and beautifully shot scenes. I bought it for my own personal use, as I don't have much opportunity to get out and about in nature, so I can watch it and relax when I need to and let my worries and troubles float away! The seaside scenes and the rockpool reminded me of my childhood holidays rooting around in these pools at Porthcawl - happy days 

Thank you for making such an uplifting DVD and sharing your travels through nature with us, and if you wish to use anything I have said on your website then that is fine by me as long as only my first name and location (South Wales) are used. 

Best wishes for your future projects - I will keep an eye on your website.

Dear Barry,

I have had a series of stressful events in my life, your DVD's have been a life saver, they are so calming and soothing. Gentle on my nerves on days when I am unable to bear music or any other noise

The Calmer by Water is on the same level I have always found that being around water hearing the noise of the gentle stream or the gentle waves on the shore calm the spirit and eases the soul

I cannot praise your DVD's enough and would recommend them to everyone and anyone there should be one in every home

I already look forward to the next DVD/CD

Thank you form my heart and soul



I have just watched, at least twice in one sitting, your 'Calmer by Nature' DVD, and feel really grateful, as I am calm again!  (enjoying good stuff, rather than getting het up about not important details).

So I am thinking of recommending it to/giving it to a friend whose grandmother has senile dementia.


"Calming for someone like me who needs to learn to relax - that's what heart patients have to do...I find this hard, I like to keep busy, the DVD was a lot less dull and boring than some of the other relaxation activities, which can put me to sleep; it appealed to me, it let me think, but in a relaxed way."

Hi Barry 
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your Calmer by Nature DVD. Having been through a stressful time lately, it was just what I needed to calm me down. In fact, so relaxing did I find it the first time I watched it that I found myself dropping off to sleep and had to make a real effort to stay awake the second time so as not to miss any of it! I particularly liked the fact that there was no commentary or background music, just natural sounds. Great stuff. 

I really enjoyed the Calmer Two DVD and found it just as relaxing as your original Calmer By Nature. I find when I am watching the DVD's you don't have to 'try' and relax it just 'happens', they are beautiful. 

"It draws you in gently, while you float down the river.... an escape to a place that is safe and peaceful - respite from the world and chaos - away from my looming crisis."

"Rock pools and the sea, waves lapping on the beach...this is really Cornwall, if I was stuck in hospital like I have been before, I would love to watch this and feel calm and happier."

Thank you very much for the DVD on Calmer by Nature which I received yesterday. I watched it yesterday and absolutely loved it, I felt so relaxed watching it that I almost felt hypnotised! You must certainly have a lot of patience to have made such a superb DVD taking five years. Thanking you, 
Lana Coleman.

Dear Barry 
It is indeed magical and a masterpiece. I think everyone who lives in London should have a copy!

"Oh, I do love that there's none of that horrid plastic tinny music."

Dear Barry
I recently bought your 'Calmer by Nature' DVD as a Christmas present for my elderly father-in-law who now lives in a residential home. Having watched it once I think it will be of great benefit to him, especially as he tends to get anxious at times. I am sure he will find it very soothing.
I would have liked to be able to tell him where it was filmed. If there is any possibility that you could let me know I would be very grateful.
Kind regards

"A real change from dolphin and whale music - but I would love real dolphin and whale footage - perhaps even from a boat - but please, no people or fake sounds."

"The fish in the river....so well filmed...it reminded me of fishing with my Granddad - I miss visiting them, and I miss what we did together, this reminded me of how many happy times we had together."

"A great movie, which I could watch over and over....you'd not get bored with this one very easily; it just takes you away to a better place."

"Can I put it on my iPod, and then it's with me whenever I need it?

I love the CD, it's very relaxing - just what I need to calm my wired nervous system. Best wishes Kat.
