Who you are
You're keen to make a real and lasting difference to the young people you support but feel helpless and overwhelmed by how to do this. One of your biggest fears is making things worse.
You're dream is to be able to refer young people into proper support services but they don't meet the threshold and you're left questioning if you have the skills to truly help them
You're seeing a huge rise in anxious thoughts, worries and fears and feel like things are getting worse
You've been on some brilliant mental health courses in the past but then the information got stuffed in dusty old folder and was forgotten
You are a parent, carer or youth professional who wants to make a lasting difference to help your child thrive
We have worked with thousands of people including: Great Ormond Street Hospital, The RAF, Mind, YEPS youth service, NPT youth service, Carmarthenshire Health Schools project and schools and youth organisations across the world.
We would love to work with you too.
How we help
We provide CPD accredited training courses that go way beyond a box tick, we want you to really feel like the strategies and information we have shared will be used to make a lasting difference
Each course is delivered by an expert on that topic. Our trainers are trainee, qualified and accredited counsellors and mindfulness practitioners who specialise in youth mental health and wellbeing
Each course comes with downloadable resource packs, how to guides, worksheets and a post-course strategy video
You receive exclusive access to our online community after you attend each course which gives you support from the course developer, accredited psychotherapist Ange McMillan and a chance to discuss your training with your peers
On top of this you'll have the opportunity to create an implementation plan and receive a review of this four weeks after the course takes place.
