I liked watching the facilitator (Steve Burns) work – changing pace, gaining interest, including everyone, etc.

10/10 The whole training makes a good positive start to the term; focuses the mind on the positive personal reflection on how to change your approach & therefore the kids too.

About 3 years ago you delivered training at The Acorns School, Ormskirk. I said I wanted to carriage drive and we were challenged to achieve our goals. I have to say I thought, ‘Well,  if I want to do something I’m going to do it!’. I have, this is me competing at the National Indoor Carriage Driving Championships. Against able bodied and yes, I am still paralysed and a full-time wheelchair user.

I initially felt a telephone consultation would be difficult when in fact, it was possibly more productive than face to face. Steve really seemed to understand my situation and was able to help me to focus on a specific area to improve my life.

Educational Resources

I think the resources look brilliant to use in school. It’s hard to find time to plan 1:1 and group work using this resource. I can work more spontaneously & find a resource on an issue at last minute or in the moment. Looking forward to using the pack.

The stories are excellent, and I liked the idea of the Book of Metaphors. Really liked to think of how the material can be used & adapted in the context of my own teaching.
– Hewett School

Very clearly presented with the key information as prompts. Different approaches that can be used especially Anchoring and Power of Words. Useful resource suggestions.
– Essex PRU

The materials will be very useful especially in the work of the reintegration team.

The resources are good practical advice that I can put into practice in the classroom.
