Excellent delivery on what is a huge issue in schools for all learners. Bethany delivered all aspects with great aplomb, humour and reality checks to make the two hours of Inset enjoyable.

Assistant Head Teacher , Loxford School

This was a brilliant training session that covered exactly what was asked for. The techniques for talking to children about why they are feeling stressed was great and the mindfulness techniques were very beneficial.

I thought Andrew was brilliant. The course was very interesting and Andrew made the content engaging. I had never thought about the relationship between anxiety and decision making before and I am making forward to using this knowledge with the children.
