Annie was lovely throughout the course. Mandy the lady that joined her on course was also great – both very knowledgeable on subject and full of empathy for offers of experiences within the training session.

Can’t wait to complete more courses through Loates – thanks again.

Considering the topic of mental health first aid Annie made the training informative, yet it was also an enjoyable experience. Annie made it inter-active and wasn’t just following a power-point presentation. I have come away with a huge amount of knowledge to take back to my workplace.

I recently attended a 2 day mental health first aider training program.

All the team were friendly & welcoming into their lovely, modernised training suite set in the gorgeous Darley Abbey Mills.

Annie is absolutely amazing! Her knowledge, skills & passion for teaching mental health awareness is out of this world.

Annie was so flexible & attentive to our needs. I have a disability & she went the extra mile to make me comfortable by organising a parking space right outside the building, providing me with an erganomic chair & more opportunity for mobility so we weren’t sat down for long periods of time. This was all done discretely by asking me what they could do to help by email & I witnessed her asking others if mobility activities would help them also. (It was a red hot day for training & I think all appreciated it). I observed her modifying the activities to meet others needs too; as & when they arose.

Annie encouraged & provided equal opportunity for all to share their own experiences. She listened to all with genuine interest & helped us to see how our experience fitted in with the mental health first aider action plan.

Fresh water, fruit & other snacks were on our table to help ourselves to, throughout the day. Plenty of breaks were provided with a lovely buffet lunch too.

I highly recommend the course & this particular training provider.

Thank you & well done to the whole team, you’re all amazing! 💖

Sarah and Annie work well as a team and they delivered an exceptional session regarding conflict resolution and mediation skills. They provided us with a lot of information, but also kept everyone engaged by doing group activities. What I enjoyed the most was the fact that it wasn’t just another boring reading of PowerPoint Presentation, but a wealth of knowledge and engagement from both trainers. No question too difficult and a day well spent!

Thank you for equipping me with a lot of knowledge and I look forward to seeing you soon!

The course was 5 star, Annie put us at ease from the first minute and delivered the course superbly. she gave us time to take on board the information and didn’t try to bombard us with information.
every session of the course was explained and Annie got all the delegates involved and active in the day.
I enjoyed the course and now have some knowledge to use when helping people with their issues. Nothing was too much trouble for Annie so brilliant.
Must also add that the shortbread that Annie supplied was not only delicious it was M&S too.
I would recommend this course to anyone thank you for all your work in training people up to help those with mental health issues
Thank You

The MHFA Two Day course is superb. Loates trainer Amanda delivered the course in a relaxed and enjoyable manner, engaging everybody and making difficult subjects very easy to discuss and learn about. The practical exercises were actually fun but with a serious point, the Hearing Voices one really brought home to me how some people suffer. The course covers depression and anxiety, suicide, psychosis and gives you a framework to use to help people. The course book is huge, well produced and contains more detailed information than you need for the course, you take it away and dip in it at your leisure. Loates training rooms allowed for small group work and large discussions with large screen and good sound.

This course opened my eyes to what people go through, and that many people are affected. Everyone was open which added to the learning atmosphere. I recommend this course to everyone, all levels and all roles. The more we talk, the stronger we all are.

What could have been PowerPoint overload and an emotionally difficult couple of days was handled brilliantly with excellent delivery by Annie, who used a combination of the course content and her own experiences to create an engaging and inclusive environment for everyone. I would 100% recommend this course delivered by Annie to every business!

Poppy Sinclair
Sales Manager

I attended the 2 day Mental Health First Aider training ran by Annie. There was excellent communication and information leading up to the course. The course itself was very interesting and informative with lots of interactive opportunities over the 2 days. Training room was very comfortable and lunch and refreshments provided on each day was fantastic. For anyone thinking about completing this course I would definitely recommend the course and Annie the trainer who was fantastic. We will definitely be booking on another delegate.

Emma Blackmore
Registered Manager

From the initial query regarding this course to its delivery, I couldn’t fault anything. The pre-course information and joining instructions were given in good time and everyone from Loates was friendly, professional and made you warm to them immediately. The course itself was fantastic, the manual and workbook will be used for years to come as it has so much information in it and will become my reference guide for a lot of things. The trainer was brilliant and put everyone at ease for what could potentially be a harrowing course and the attendee interaction was excellent too. Would highly recommend this course and Loates Management Training in future
