what people say

Participant 'Supporting an Anxious Young Person' Course

"Even though this was an online course, I really felt that she encouraged a sense of community amongst the participants and allowed us to share good practice. I think it has to be the most beneficial course that I have attended." 

Participant Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

"Thank you for an amazing and inspirational course, I have learnt so much and developed my skills in this essential work. If anyone reading is wondering about attending a course-the answer is a resounding yes! Thank you Elemental Health"

School Staff Wellbeing Webinar

"I am fairy ancient now and been teaching for decades - but I think this is one of the best training sessions I've ever had. Pacing, structure, content (balance between theory and concrete examples) and your style of delivery.”

Shirish Kulkarni

Adult Mental Health First Aid Instructor 

I’ve worked in a range of mental health roles over the last 15 years - alongside my work as a journalist and trainer. I spent five years as a Childline Volunteer, before going on to do a Certificate in Counselling and train as a Mental Health First Aid Instructor. 

 

In my work in TV news, I’ve  produced a number of investigations focussing on mental health issues - including work on the over-prescription of anti-depressants and ADHD medication to young people.

 

I work with Elemental Health delivering Adult MHFA courses, training in schools and specialist mental health consultancy for newsrooms.

Jo Bradley

Assistant Headteacher & Founder of Learnful School

Founder of Learnful School, an online virtual classroom transforming mental and emotional wellbeing of children and school staff by embedding daily mindfulness and wellbeing practices into the curriculum.

Having taught in primary schools for over 10 years, as assistant Head and classroom teacher of most age ranges, it was clear to me that mental and emotional wellbeing needs not just be taught about but integrated, practiced and experienced every day. Equipping and empowering both children and teachers to notice and nurture their own needs so it becomes a natural way of life.

My personal experience of leaving a successful teaching career to regain mental and emotional wellness, led me to practising mindfulness and immediately gaining the ‘relief’ I craved. As I practised I developed insight which has led me to make many positive changes in my life. My mission is to provide children, teachers and school communities with daily space and guidance to learn self-awareness and compassion so they can live, learn and teach with more happiness.

Angela McMillan

Director, accredited Psychotherapist, Trainer , Supervisor

​I set up Elemental Health after working as a counselling services manager, psychotherapist and trainer in educational establishments. I recognised that students and staff often feel concerned about how to talk about feelings and work with mental health issues and I began to deliver training that gave people the confidence to use these skills to support themselves and others.

 

I have a successful private therapy practice and have worked with diverse client groups at large charities including The Terrence Higgins Trust, Mind and the YMCA. 

I specialise in anxiety disorders and stress reduction.

I believe with the right support we can all reach our full potential.

I have previously worked with children in care in fostering and adoption, women experiencing domestic violence in a refuge setting, as well as working with adults who are homeless with secondary mental health involvement.

Mental health is something I'm really passionate due to my past work experience as well as having lived experience of Bipolar Disorder.
