From past students

Sarah Morrison has collected many glowing testimonials from students over the years. Here’s some favourites.

Sarah was an engaging facilitator that adapted real life events which gave a real understanding to the situation in discussion. Her knowledge and skills to present to a class was at an extremely high standard. She had the ability to revert the conversation to a new discussion with ease. Sarah is a great presenter in this field with her own previous knowledge and understanding gave her a warm and caring spin on her training, Fantastic job.”

Second course I have attended with Sarah. Brilliant presenter. Well spoken, addressed individuals and their personal experiences with kindness and compassion. I think everyone walked away with greater knowledge.”

“Sarah had a great respect for mental health issues, this was evident in her presentation of the topic. Sarah’s knowledge of this course and her life experiences were valuable and help cement our learning’s. I would recommend this course.”

I believe this course is beneficial to all people as it makes them aware of what is happening to people around them and not to judge and criticise for something that may be affected (ie work) it makes people more aware that there are so many people going through this. Supervisors and managers should all be doing this course especially because l think they need to know what staff may be going through and how to approach it.”
