We understand the challenges and risks young people face today. We provide strategies to assist parents with the tools they need at home.

Why Choose Us?

Aren’t you bored with generic training, read from a script that you walk away from truly believing you could have read that information in a quarter of the time and got on with what you really needed to do?  We have! 

That’s one of the reasons we’re passionate about really making a difference and people being supported to achieve their goals.

Real People

We bring the human into everything we do, sharing both our professional and personal experiences.

Real Experience

Over 40 years of working with people across a range of settings and sectors.

Real Knowledge

Connecting theory to practice, reflecting on our experiences and applying our new learning to the contemporary world of work.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Really relevant to role, good balance of theory and practical, interactive. Usually training can be quite ‘boring’ or ‘dull’ but they both made it very interactive and fun!

Stronger Parents, Stronger Families Course, May 2022

Working with Haley to implement a large scale training programme for the organisation was brilliant, because her approach was pragmatic and flexible. She quickly became our ‘go-to’ trainer as her delivery was engaging and attendees on her sessions always left inspired. Haley has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is able to translate this into a responsive training session. She was also willing to adapt the delivery to our organisational vision. It was such a positive experience working with her!
