George has delivered some outstanding training, both Safeguarding and Mental Health First Aid. Both courses were thought provoking, taught those who have plenty of experience new things, and was delivered in a clear and engaging way. Excellent CPD for those just embarking and skilled alike.
Fantastic energy with all stakeholders when conducting training- warm, genuine and approachable. Training was personalized, engaging and current. The administration and communication with Mind Your Health Ltd has been professional, authentic and seamless. Super proud to be trained by Mind Your Help Ltd. I couldn’t recommend highly enough!
We had a great experience with Mind Your Health. The booking process was easy to use, and George offered valuable insight into the different levels of certifications available. The course was delivered across two afternoons, with some self-paced study followed by an individual assessment. George encouraged discussion throughout our workshops and shared personal and professional experiences to give real-life context to our studies. We have received great feedback from the staff who are now Certified Mental Health First Aiders on the value of the training and its usefulness when supporting their peers.
George at Mind Your Health gave insightful Mental Health First Aid Training to my Prefect Team. His flexibility and willingness to work online, in person and in a hybrid manner made the session extremely inclusive. They came away with a sense of purpose and a much better understanding of a wide range of issues. I will be using George again next year to train my next team.
George ran a series of bespoke Suicide Awareness and Intervention training sessions for my boarding team and student leaders in December 2020. I was impressed with his in-depth knowledge and personable style which enabled him to guide us through some particularly difficult subject material with ease. He was extremely flexible, and I thoroughly enjoyed engaging with him whilst sharing our thoughts of boarding pastoral care. Would happily work with him again and feel confident recommending him to other pastoral leaders.
