Feedback from previous interventions

"Thankyou so so much to Steph for taking on our expanding cohort of pupils who continue to need support and advice. As a school we have thrown so much your way over the past year or so and you have given our students skills which will hopefully support them through their darkest of days. We have seen first hand students using techniques and ways of coping which has been embedded by yourself. All of the students that are lucky enough to receive treatment from yourself speak about their sessions with confidence and praise. I know feedback from parents is also hugely positive. I know several would like to thank you personally, given the opportunity. It has been a very tricky time for so many of our students and you have offered some of them a much needed sanctuary within the school day. You really have made a positive difference to so many young lives and thankyou doesn't really seem enough.

"Amazing in-depth knowledge shared; lots of helpful information was engaging; have learnt lots and now feel more confident to help the children and myself".

"Fantastic training, I have learnt so much about mental health. I particularly enjoyed mindfulness activities."

"Enjoyed today's training very much, it made me think! Will be trying some of the techniques shown in my work and personal life. Many thanks"
