Our professional and experienced trainers
Working in partnership with My White Dog to deliver training excellence
I am an Instructor Member of MHFA England and facilitate the interactive Adult and Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training and Mental Health awareness workshops to help build resilience in a changing environment for adults who want to support teams, employees, colleagues and adults who want to support young people age 8-18.
My motivation for change comes from teenage trauma, which created a drive and unconscious focus towards hope through travel and adventure in the outdoors. I was a military wife during the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and I have led young adults across the UK, Africa and Asia and became a Guinness world record holder as part of the first all female polar expedition in 1997. My continued professional development is in social science, emotional intelligence, positive psychology including post traumatic growth. I also work in collaboration with Aviation Action, Wiltshire Mind and Choice Therapies.
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 500 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.
