Training helps us to develop our confidence and abilities
throughout our career
I have a real passion for training. Over the past 30 years, I have designed and facilitated many different types of training for a variety of audiences and settings. I skilfully facilitate workshops, seminars and lectures and deliver keynote speeches at conferences. I receive very positive feedback from participants, who report that they find me knowledgeable, clear, and responsive to their needs as an audience.
I have a global outlook having worked with international audiences, participants and lived in different countries. I have listed below the types of workshops and groups that I routinely deliver:
psycho-educational workshops (managing stress, anxiety, improving performance)
personal development (assertiveness, self-esteem, coping with uncertainties)
professional development (listening or tutoring skills for tutors and welfare staff)
bespoke trainings for college senior tutors at Cambridge University
teaching on professional trainings for therapists and university staff
providing culturally competent support services, working with difference and diversity
improving self-care and resilience
mental wellbeing: challenges and guidance
many addiction related topics (alternative to drinking, motivational interventions)
variety of mental health trainings
I offer a wide range of training in psychotherapy, personal and professional development, cross-cultural work, or wellbeing in organisations face-to-face or online.
If you have a particular training need in mind, please do contact me so I can create something bespoke to the needs of your organisation.

From listening skills for tutors, managing professional boundaries, responding to sexual assault disclosures, reflective practice groups for welfare staff, or bespoke trainings for senior tutors.
