Our capacity to address our toughest social challenges depends on our willingness to admit that we are part of, rather than apart from, the woundedness of our world. Adam Kahane
The evidence is unanimous that ‘it ain’t what you do it’s the way that you do it’ that has the biggest influence on helping people change, and yet the majority of training and support is around the what – procedures and interventions.
If we don’t get the foundation right, in both who we are as a human and using our understanding how childhood trauma affects adult choices, then change is ineffective at best. With it magic can happen, and in services that are already stretched this is the best and most evidence-based effective way forward. And it needn’t be complicated:

I offer training that combines evidence and the real world.
It focuses on helping each of us be, and do, our best where we are now, and helping heal what gets in the way – for us and our clients.
Powerful. Simple. Effective. Real
If organisations prioritise this then everything else will follow:
- people get the help they really need to change
- targets get surpassed, and easier
- you reduce staff stress, so less staff sickness and turnover
It’s learning to balance power and love, boundaries and understanding.
It’s about creating a safe space so real change can happen – for staff and clients
It’s helping staff grow and be their best, confident and at ease with all situations
It’s something we need to learn and continue to master – there is no such thing as someone who has got this sorted.
I have worked this way for 20 yrs and consistently overshot targets whilst also working with clients others find too difficult to manage.
I also ran a project with this foundation and transformed it.
Guaranteed practical, relevant and fun.
Some of the feedback given:
‘…the feedback from your training was exceptional. Staff were so inspired they have gone away and done more reading. More please’
‘Kathryn gave a presentation at the event in January and we were so impressed we asked her to come and do something similar with the admin team.’
‘Better than I could have imagined and initially I was sceptical about attending but definitely feel it was needed and used and worked.’
‘The training exceeded my expectations. I thought that it might skim the surface and not get to the nitty gritty of what happens. Instead the course directly addressed the difficulties that we have found as a staff team and helped us to work together to find a way forward.’
‘Loved the sense of humour and trainer’s passion & knowledge’
‘Would like this to be implemented across all of company & to underpin all we do (priority of Therapeutic Alliance and self-care in how work)’
