Miss J Platten - Early Years Teacher
Takeley Primary School
"I am very sensitive to stress and anxiety. Teaching and working with children can be very stressful and the pressure on teachers can be extreme. I really liked the fact that Anna had extensive knowledge of working with young people and was able to relate to the daily stresses and strains of working within schools. I think we all felt that she removed the stigma of stress and normalized the fact that everyone would experience stress, that it was almost human nature and it wasn't something to worry about, rather something to recognise and help ourselves with. I loved all the relaxation techniques, it didn't feel like attending a normal course! it was the best part of my week! But I also really enjoyed learning about the science of stress and the different chemical reactions that happen to make me react to certain stressors the way I do. I managed to teach EFT to my children and we use it as a calming down technique after lunch!"

Commenting on behaviour management training for teaching assistants
This was amazing. Being honest, when I work with young people I go on instinct, using my experience of my own children and feedback from the teachers. To be given some real knowledge about how to identify certain behaviours, how to manage them and most importantly, how to support them, was really empowering. I feel like I’m going into individual work with some expertise and I feel much more confident. The trainer was really lovely too, lots of advice and knowledge for us to take from!
