Comments from clients

Futureworks

“I wanted to thank you so much for running the training session with us last week. It was really brilliant and I’ve had a number of staff let me know that they had learnt a great deal.” -
Kate Le Cocq, Head of Student Services

Queen Ethelburgas School

“Anxiety and panic attacks were issues which had been highlighted by our students as being significant and I know that students were grateful that this had been acknowledged. Having spoken to several students who were in your workshops, they said that your presentation was a good source of information for them and that it had made them think a lot more about the difficulties faced by those who suffered from anxiety.”

Trafford General Hospital

“The Anxiety UK panic attack training provided me with a useful understanding of panic attacks, and practical knowledge which will enable me to confidently and effectively help panic sufferers presenting at A&E in future. I would highly recommend this training.” -
Jan Kelly, A&E Sister/Practice Educator

Cancer Research UK

“The trainer has a great presenting style, with lots of examples from her own practice which is really useful. I came away with lots of practical techniques for dealing with health anxiety.”

The View from the Shard

“I didn’t know much before this event but it has really opened my eyes about anxiety. An excellent session: I learnt a lot and feel more confident in understanding the subject.”

E-ON Energy

“I wish I knew this before - it would have helped me intervene earlier before the anxiety increased. The section on dealing with stress helped me recognise what I do that helps.”

Mental health in the workplace

Work-related stress, anxiety and depression costs the UK economy some £70-100 billion and 70 million sick days each year. However, it’s not just the financial cost to your business that’s important, but also the impact on your employees and their perception of you as an employer. A good employer values, supports and invests in their staff.

Mental health in schools

Many young people experience anxiety, stress or anxiety-based depression. Ensuring that they have the support and skills to manage these conditions is vital. Some 81% of teachers report that their poor mental health has a negative impact on the quality of their relationships with pupils. On average, three children in every class have a mental health problem.
