Comments from previous participants include
- “Parvin was hugely knowledgeable and pitched the training just right. The content was in-depth yet never felt too heavy. She gave real world examples which I really liked. She also gave examples above and beyond the training, drawing on lived experience, evidencing her excellence as a trainer. Parvin also created a ‘safe’ and non-judgemental space where participants were encouraged to share their own experiences and ask questions. Louise facilitated the training expertly. Thank you Parvin & Louise.”
- “It was really helpful to think more in depth about these issues and factors. Naming systems was really helpful as this was so practical in terms of how we deal with clients and helpful to understand”
