What Our Clients Say About Us

“I’ve been on loads of training over the years and I’ve taken more away from this!”

Stronger Parents, Stronger Families Course, May 2022

“Excellent, informative course. Delivered by 2 people who knew their stuff & then some!”

Safeguarding for Professionals Working in Therapeutic Spaces

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!

Transformation & Policy Manager, Wigan Council

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!

Healthy Workers Healthy Working Relationships, June 2022 Training with Adopt North East

“Absolutely brilliant and so informative.
A very emotional subject presented in a really fun way.”
