Attendee Testimonials

Our support group of counsellors booked Tom for a workshop on sexuality and gender that he delivered to us. It was a fantastic day of learning on a topic that is not covered enough in counselling training. Tom was interesting, knowledgeable and flexible, and shared a lot of his own personal story. Thank you so much for a fantastic day of learning.

Informative training that was given in an engaging way. Zoom training can be a bit dry! I liked the break out discussions and I felt particularly held by Tom as a facilitator in terms of competency, knowledge and an invitation to make mistakes and not know everything. 

Fantastic workshop! Tom was very knowledgeable about the subject and provided a safe space for us to explore the subject fully.

The workshop struck a perfect balance of theory/information and group discussion. Tom held the group very nicely and his passion for the topic is clear. I would recommend to anyone. 

I attended the Sexuality and Gender Awareness CPD Workshop in December and came away having learnt so much and an interest to learn more. The workshop was delivered brilliantly within a comfortable environment. 

I enjoyed the fact that someone was doing a workshop on a subject that effects them as well, that makes it more real, plus the way it has been presented, open and honest. Breakout rooms were great, given all of us a chance to talk and make connections. I believe that the amount of people attending was just right.
