Our professional and experienced trainers

Working in partnership with My White Dog to deliver training excellence

Paula Power

I am passionate about breaking down barriers around mental health and mental ill health, to create light bulb moments to encourage change and an open, connected and kinder culture. ‘’To be heard’’ drawing on positive psychology, reducing stigma, improving emotional literacy and awareness around trauma.  I facilitate interactive mental health first aid training and awareness courses to help build resilience, and encourage a non-judgemental approach to listening.

Motivated for change as a result of teenage trauma and inspired by the outdoors, I have led youth groups across the UK, Africa and Asia and became guinness world record holder as part of the first all female polar expedition in 1997.

I have now developed my experience and education within teaching, training and mentoring in a work environment to provide a safe space for those who may be confused or inexperienced to help someone with a mental health issue. I have now trained over 300 business leaders and adults to become mental health first aiders, to be able to spot signs of mental ill health and support someone until professional help arrives.

As our courses are currently on-line there is no limitation to location, we provide a safe learning space and deliver manuals and workbooks to your door.

 “Professional, well designed course that has expanded my knowledge. Paula is an excellent instructor who keeps the pace and tone of the course in perfect harmony”
