Training, Workshops, Presentations, Coaching and Consultancy
Attitudes towards people struggling with mental health issues would seem to be improving through advertising campaigns but there is still a stigma that is often borne out of a lack of knowledge. Training can help address this gap which is likely to have a positive effect for sufferer and trainee. My personal view is that we are all human and any one of us can develop a mental health issue, so the more we understand about it the more compassionate we are likely to be to others and ourselves.
Having training and experience in a wide range of mental health issues means I am able to offer a bespoke service, tailored to your requirements. It could be that you are being asked to work with people who are struggling with mental health issues and unsure how best to approach this. Not feeling prepared can be anxiety-provoking, and training or consultancy can help safely underpin this process.
I have researched and also work in the area of online communications, and have responded to the curiosity surrounding working in this way by offering bespoke and workshop trainings, as well as business coaching, to professionals contemplating working online. I also run a campaign for positive online communications called The Netiquette Revolution.
Diamondleaf Training are currently offering a ‘Resilience Workshop’ to help support staff in organisations and businesses. The workshop incorporates psycho-education about how human beings deal with stress, anxiety and depression in these modern times as well as an understanding and taster of well researched yoga techniques to help empower us. This unique workshop offers access to two experienced professionals in the mental health and yoga field.
Previous well received trainings, workshops and presentations are: Resilience workshops, Pluralistic Therapy, Diversity, Working in Private Practice, and Contemplating working therapeutically online (see testimonials below).

How I Work
As a counselling psychologist you can be sure that I am working ethically and with the most up-to-date research and advice. Depending on your needs, I also have access to other mental health professionals who will work with me and/or who I can consult. I am mindful that talking about mental health issues can be difficult and you can be sure that this will be managed safely and with sensitivity. I am also very aware that everything occurs in its own unique context, which often includes an organisational setting, and that this can also require attention.
I currently offer; staff training, workshops, presentations, talks, consultancy and packages of training which I can adapt to meet your needs. Some of the issues that people can struggle to understand are; Loss, grief and bereavement, anxiety, depression, anger, personality disorders, learning difficulties, self-harm and suicidal ideation, for example. There are of course wide variations within these categories (and not all are classified as mental health disorders) but training will be tailored to meet the needs of the group. I work with other professionals as appropriate.
Prices are competitive and on a sliding scale depending on practicalities such as provision of training facilities, audience size, how many trainers will be required etc. I am happy to discuss your needs and provide a quote. Please feel free to contact me.
