What others say about Mind Management Skills for Life


“I have been working in the Learning & Development profession for around 30 years, running a wide range of programmes with many different providers and I can honestly say that none of them have been so impactful as the Skills for Life Programme.

Our employees’ level of self-awareness has increased dramatically, and I can see that they have been able to apply their learning immediately back to their working environment. This is an impressive and rewarding outcome and is making a real difference to our organisation.”

Liz Pillans,  L&D Lead, De’Longhi Group

This course made a difference to my professional and personal life, it was profound! During the sessions, I learnt as much about myself (and, importantly my inner Chimp) as I did about how the students in our care in schools can use this resource and knowledge to manage their own emotions and behaviours.

Having attended over 100 courses in my professional career, this workshop stands out from the rest.
