Here are some comments from training sessions I have run recently (2018 & 2019):

  • Thank you so much for your enthusiastic session last night, it was amazing! You had the whole room captivated for two and a half hours and  we all learnt a tremendous amount about Mental Health. Your students and patients are very lucky to have you.
  • Thank you for arranging the training. It was a really great session and Ellie was incredibly interesting and engaging. Makes me want to enrol to do a psychology degree!
  • I had seen Ellie before but thought she was so interesting that I decided to go along for a second time. Last night’s session was just as valuable and thought- provoking as the previous one. I will really look forward to hearing Ellie speak on self harm.
  • A brief line to say well done and thank you for securing Ellie for yesterday’s training.  I have heard her once before a thousand years ago, but yesterday she was brilliant: intelligible to even this bear of small brain; and highly relevant as well.
  • The training it was all very interesting and Ellie a brilliant speaker. Such a complicated subject but so important to us.  Well done.
  • Just wanted to say how brilliant I thought Ellie was. So easy to listen to and so informative. Thank you so much for organising it.
  • Thank you for arranging this training, it was really informative and thought-provoking, and Ellie is an inspiring speaker and full of enthusiasm. A great evening.
  • I couldn’t sleep as she gave us so much valuable information! She is quite an amazing and inspirational young woman. I am most certainly interested in her next presentation.
  • I just wanted to send you and Ellie my warmest wishes and thanks for such a helpful, informative and inspiring session yesterday.  I don’t think I had attended any of Ellie’s training before, and I was blown away by her passion and insight.
  • Mental health issues are very close to my heart and have been for a very long time, as I am the daughter and long term carer of a sufferer.  Ellie’s no-nonsense but compassionate approach made so much sense to me, and I felt rejuvenated after a long and tedious day at work.  Please pass on my thanks to her.
