Feedback from our January 2024 course

A really valuable and informative course that gives you the skills and confidence to deal with potentially difficult situations. The trainer was excellent as always. Great interaction, kept to time and made the course very interesting.

Becky is an excellent trainer. She is supportive, engaging and really knows her stuff. The course content was informative and it was excellent to receive a refresher to my own knowledge, as well as hearing about all of the changes and updates that have happened since my last course. It was a very valuable experience. Thank you!

Great refresher course, good balance of input, reflection and conversation to embed the learning.like the use of videos.Becky is a fabulous trainer who can and does meet everyone’s experience / knowledge in a bespoke way. Thank you

It is always a pleasure to be trained by Becky and I come away feeling more confident to deal with these tough situations. More informed about the support available and meet rally interesting and caring people.

It’s not always easy to deliver training on mental health first aid via Zoom but Becky is excellent. She is supportive, always ensures that everyone’s voice is heard and handles with sensitivity and concerns or reactions to the subject matter.

This was an excellent course, delivered in a safe and empathetic way. It has definitely given me an increased confidence in how I would deal with a situation as well as reassure me about situations which I have already experienced, knowing that I approached them in a suitable manner. To see so many people so engaged with the course also gives me hope for a more caring and supportive culture in general.
