Training: What I Offer
As a qualified and experienced trainer, there are two strands to this aspect of my work as I both organise and deliver training.
It may be that you have ideas, and maybe even more concrete plans, about training that you could deliver but the administration side has stopped you proceeding further. I have organised many training events, for myself and for others and would be happy to talk about how we could collaborate, with me organising an event that enables you to deliver your training to others.
On the other hand, you may have everything in place but need someone to deliver the material. I am happy to offer training based on previously delivered and successful workshops and courses or to work with you to develop and deliver bespoke training modules. I have many reports of how participants experience my person centred ethos in this area of my work. My aim is to create an atmosphere where those on courses or workshops find their knowledge and practice valued and where they are encouraged to explore further. My role is to facilitate sharing of skills, understanding and information, including my own, to form an inclusive, interesting and worthwhile learning experience.
Here are some examples of recent courses and workshops, with comments from the trainer I was working with, participants and/or those commisioning the training, where appropriate and available.
Training that I have organised:
Eight week Mindfulness courses
"Sarah is a thoroughly able colleague, with excellent administrative skills and a superb intuitive awareness of people. She is truly wonderful to work with, being efficient, humorous and easy going whilst always getting the job at hand done. I also admire her integrity and she demonstrates true congruence, empathy and kindness. It is a pleasure working with her."
Spirituality day conferences
"kept me informed and very helpful"
"Sarah did a fantastic job of hosting and enabling and being who you are, thank you"
"It was such a good day on Saturday. What a lovely group of people and I learnt so much from all of them. Would you send me information on any other training courses that you do"
"Well organised day, all information that was needed was emailed out in advance"
Training that I have delivered:
Suicide and Mental Health Awareness

"Thank you so much Sarah for such a sensitive delivery around our tragic event."
"Sarah was very sensitive and staff .... found it beneficial"

8-week Mindfulness course
"So many thanks for your skilful & inspirational leading of the group - you've made the difficult bits much easier, the rest very enjoyable"
"Sarah has been a great facilitator and is very empathic towards everyone in the group"

"clear, empathic,mindful (so a good role model), well-prepared, wise with a light touch"
