What our Memory Tuners say

I believe your course is a very important thing to have available as you age. Physical fitness is given a lot of importance, and mental fitness should be given just as much kudos.

‘There are so many pills and potions around which are supposed to help the brain it is refreshing to know that exercising the brain as you would your body is more beneficial with no negative side effects. The course was very helpful.’

‘Your books and course are so full of hints and ‘how-to’ that I have made good strides towards improving my memory. I am 76 years and the improvements and confidence I have gained are huge. Thanks for giving me my life back. I’m no longer a wall flower. Thank you, thank you, thank you.’

‘I find myself getting more alert and conscious of what is happening in my brain: that all-important: focus, connect, rehearse. Maybe there really is hope for my memory yet! Thank you for your on-going support and encouragement.’

‘I am thoroughly enjoying Memory Tune. It has become part of my day. I am already feeling more alert and confident. I can remember all the images and the words from the first Tune of a week ago!’

‘The Memory Tune course makes me aware of  USE IT OR LOSE IT.  I take Seven Second Memory on the train or bus some days as well. Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I was getting lazy and just didn’t bother to remember. Now I do.’

I think the ‘Memory Tunes’ course is brilliant.

The material has been carefully thought through providing a balance of information, stimulation and user friendliness. As I have learned and practiced what I can do to help me remember names, appointments etc., I have found myself with a new general feeling of alertness. ‘Memory Tunes’ is life-enriching!

I really do have to thank you and Allison for everything you do in connection with keeping the brain fit.

The puzzles, the exercises, the information, the advice, the page layout and choice of print for the written material and all expressed in such a “nice” friendly, upbeat style.

‘I think focus-connect-rehearse says it all for me. I met a man a few days ago and he was actually admiring my bike. We ended up chatting and he told me his wife was Sue and he was Neil. Bingo!’ Brain Fit for Life™



‘Very worthwhile course & well worth the few hours it takes. Lots of good new tricks to aid the ageing grey matter!’

‘Very valuable hints to encourage healthy memory. Thoroughly enjoyable and non-threatening. Younger people need to be encouraged to take the course.’

‘Thanks for yesterday’s ‘power hour!’ After the training, I spoke about the content with my husband and he particularly liked (as well as I) methods to learn someone’s name by taking a mental picture and making relevant associations. We will both be trying this as and when we meet new people.’

Selwyn Community Centre.

What our Brain Tuners say:

‘I really loved the days and have copies stored for frequent review. Already I feel much less worried about fading memory. The course has made me aware of some techniques I already use such as placing car keys in the same place (90% of the time except when I don’t), and the ability to recall accurately a large number of telephone numbers. It is great I love it. Have made notes of the 7 methods and will carry that in my purse for referral at spare moments though these are currently all too rare. Thanks a million.’

I am finding it all quite a challenge but wish to tell you that I am absolutely loving it.  We are doing it together which is fabulous fun.  I feel that you have given me a new lease on life and am finding it hard to get to do much else.

I enjoyed the reaction I received and have continued to please myself when meeting new people. I am definitely more aware that I must concentrate to achieve this result. It’s a good feeling! Knowing that I, myself, have the ability to make this happen is very empowering.

It’s lovely to be able to call people by name too. (And it pleases me to remember where I read or heard something.) Such small joys but they all add up. THANK YOU.

Techniques in Action

Tried out name recall using focus – connect -rehearse. I didn’t plan it. I was at an art auction where I was introduced to quite a few different people. I was very aware of what I was about to do.

In each case I focussed on a specific facial characteristic, I immediately used their name back to them in conversation and connected them to some aspect of their art; be it their skill, gallery or something about their personality.

I was stoked with myself as I remembered their names and was able to use them as I said “Good bye” at the end of the evening. Their reaction to hearing their name was definitely positive. (not just for me!).

Before the golf club meeting, I visualized the people I might meet there and ran their names through my mind in advance. I could ‘see’ them in my mind. This reminder helped me recognize people and their names quickly.

I also used the focus – connect strategy when I met the new club member. I listened to his name, used it when I replied and  introduced him to another friend almost straight away.
It works – I proved it!
