I can offer training to schools, youth & community workers. Having founded a youth charity in 2006 and worked in youth work for over 25 years, I have a wealth of experience. My real area of expertise is around loss - whether that be as result of a bereavement or due to parental separation. I currently work on a regular basis in five secondary schools and one primary school. I have delivered training in the UK, South Africa and Swaziland. If you want to build your confidence in working alongside children and young people effected by loss, get in touch - I'd love to talk to you!
“Pete delivered the training in a way that enabled everyone in the room from very different professional and personal backgrounds to participate in it fully. He was calm and professional and gained people’s trust speedily through his knowledge and manner. He presented the material clearly and ensured that we understood it. There was a good balance of practical exercises and slides/written material.I would recommend Pete as a trainer/facilitator."

"The whole area of loss and bereavement raises many sensitive issues and Pete quickly created a supportive and respectful learning environment in which to share and participate. He also brings with him a wealth of experience in small groups, mentoring and counselling which enrich the training. He placed the young person’s needs at the centre of the discussions, a great listener and generous in sharing resources, which promotes good practice and development for facilitators."
