Personal Safety & Life Skills Mentor

I've been designing and deploying training solutions for Military and Police

personnel, community groups, schools and corporate clients for 30 years. 

In 2007, after a successful career teaching hundreds of Military and Police

personnel, I was asked to develop a course to support victims of bullying in

schools. I created a non-physical preventative measures course that could

be sustainably delivered through the schools PSHE curriculum.

The Life Skills for Children course was born out of this period and was the

main driving force behind the charity I set up called "Young People are our

Future". Through the charity, 13,000 young people, 600 families and

numerous professionals experienced this great educational resource.

My passion to support women with their personal safety concerns was addressed in the early 2000's when I was asked to create a course for Women's Aid. After a huge learning curve working with a handful of domestic violence victims, the content of the women's safety course was born and to date has been successfully delivered to over 20,000 women. This course is a preventative measures approach for all girls and women.

Several years ago I started to provide my services as a consultant, supporting existing projects around the country that helped vulnerable people within their community. It was within this role, that the "Inspired to Achieve" personal development course was created to support young people in their transition between school and the workplace and adults who needed support on their mental health journey.

I regularly provide group and one to one services in: schools, community groups, clubs, companies.
