“I have attended countless professional courses over my career, and this trainer was without doubt the most engaging and energizing I have ever encountered. He brought the subject to life, carried all the attendees with him throughout the course, and really cared about our experience and the importance of checking in with ourselves throughout.“
Senior Civil Service Manager
I just wanted to drop a personal note to say thank you very much for the mental health session you ran yesterday.
Having a team with 2 members who I know currently have MH issues who speak to me about their situations, aswell as several friends and family who have some severe cases I found yesterdays course really insightful and helpful.
It has given me a few different ways and perspectives that I can adopt when speaking/dealing with these individuals, but the key message and one I struggle with myself was that I cant cure them as much as I want too and sometimes I really do need to step back and not become as emotionally involved”
“I took the Mental Health First Aiders course with Pete and despite the lockdown he managed to deliver this to the group online through zoom. Delivered professionally but also with his personality coming through so not a stuffy training session. Pete understands this arena and breaks it down into manageable chunks so not overwhelmed with what can be quite intense topics. Would have no hesitation in recommending him and look forward to doing further training in the future.”
“We commissioned Pete to deliver Mental Health First Aid training to Executive Team and service staff. It was so good we have commissioned more to include all service managers. The course gives food for thought on how we all manage our own mental health to support others. We all feel better equipped and have more confidence to approach this , what can be, a difficult subject. Thanks Pete.”
“Pete is very knowledgeable on the content and provides examples from his own experiences where relevant. There are many opportunities for interaction from the audience and short exercises for them to do at certain points, such as a 1-to-1 roleplay conversation between participants to demonstrate you understand the content and can apply it.
Pete delivers the content well and in a timely maner, including each member of the audience. I would recommend Pete to anyone looking into training in the area of mental health.”
“Pete Was an amazing trainer! I liked the fact that he uses his experiences to incorporate into this course, making it easier for me to understand. Pete was very good at being open and honest about things and took all of our experiences into account. Pete was very funny and made the training as enjoying as possible throughout a difficult subject. Very well done Pete!”
"An excellent course presented by an excellent trainer. Pete’s personal experience places him in an extraordinary position. His teaching style (around a difficult and serious subject) of combining humour, examples and great knowledge makes for an outstanding learning experience”
