Inspire your staff

I am a consultant trainer specialising in working with learning disability and autism services to embed person centred approaches to communication. To achieve this, I offer Intensive Interaction training events to help staff find more rapport with the people they support. Training packages are available for services wishing to develop a more person centred approach to care. I am recognised for a fresh and practical approach.

Just to say a huge thank you for the excellent evening of training tonight.  It was a wonderful session and I’ve already received some great feedback! The booklets are brilliant and your training style of engaging and sharing , whilst answering our many questions, had me totally captivated once again! I am again inspired to try some new ideas and repertoire with the children I work with.

Social Learning

My Intensive Interaction training days offer a refreshing alternative to powerpoint based sessions which usually involve delegates sitting in rows. Instead, thought provoking activities form the basis of the day with rooms arranged cabaret style seating 4 to 8 people per table. As a result, staff can more easily share and solve problems to create a high level of learning.

INSET day for Coppice School and Heatherwood School, Doncaster, February 2019, 80 delegates

I have trained with social learning experts Etienne and Bev Wenger-Trayner and, consequently, I know the value of social learning. The Intensive Interaction training day is based on these ideas so that the practice spreads through the service.

A clear framework from which to begin working. Extremely clear and well put together workshop. I can’t remember when learning was such fun!

Embedding the Intensive Interaction Training

Embedding practice is my aspiration. Firstly, I help this to happen by offering easy to remember ideas. Secondly, I have created lanyard cards, A5 handouts and recording sheets and freely share these with trainees. Thirdly, I have created YouTube videos to support team meetings after the training day to help spread practice.
