There’s a lot of training and information around Trauma Informed Care – what I aim to do is simplify and apply it to the practical work you do, and look at what it really means day to day with the dilemma’s and difficulties you face.

Using passion and humour I help you find a way that works for you and the people you serve.

I would love to support you to do this, and achieve more with less, by using all that I learnt in 20yrs of success, and stress, while continuing to look for better ways. (The screw ups taught me just as much & I’m happy to share…)

(see a video of me in action here)

By focusing on building safe relationships first the rest will follow:

  • more success & healing, less stress
  • more engagement, less challenging behaviour (staff and clients!)
  • more satisfaction, less staff burnout/ turnover

Overwhelming evidence supports this, and yet…when is it a priority? And how do we do it well with everyone? Do you know what a safe relationship really is?

I cover:

  • Starting with you & how to stay your best – from the inside out
  • Understanding (& simplifying) a trauma informed approach, and what that means practically
  • Blending the 2 to create safe, effective and genuine relationships for all – where real change can happen

And it needn’t be complicated:

“If you can’t explain it to a 6yo, you don’t understand it yourself” Albert Einstein

Powerful. Simple. Effective. Real

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.

It works.

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)’
