‘An excellent day, imaginative and inspiring. Janice creates a ‘magical’ training experience, and is very genuine and caring.’
'Very impressed. I enjoyed it tremendously and learnt a lot. I very much appreciated Janice’s approach – her honesty, knowledge and organisation’
'Janice is an exceptionally gifted trainer – skilled, knowledgeable and caring – very impressive, so much packed in, and at a deep level’
‘The day went well beyond my expectations. Janice is an excellent presenter, and I enjoyed her style enormously. I was also impressed by the sensitive way she responded to group need. I would not hesitate to work with her again’
‘Wonderful day, imaginative, with refreshingly wide variety of training methods and approaches. Janice also creates a safe, comfortable environment in which to learn and to take risks.’(Comments from recent evaluation sheets) ‘Janice has consistently provided excellent training days. She is imaginative in her choice of training methods, well organised and reliable; she is able to establish a very good rapport with participants….I have commissioned a large number of trainers and seen many of them in action. It is fair to say that Janice is one of the best, and I would have no hesitation in employing her or recommending her to other training providers.’

~ STRESSWORKS ~ Training aims to:Promote the attitudes, behaviours and skills necessary for individuals to become personally effective, both in their personal lives and in the workplace
Equip individuals and organisations with the attitudes, behaviours and skills necessary to support individuals who are themselves experiencing stress
Equip those with management responsibility with the attitudes, behaviours and skills necessary for them to effectively manage themselves and their staff in ways which combat and reduce stress at work
~ STRESSWORKS ~ training is therefore based on the following aims:
To offer a structure within which individuals can take responsibility for their own learning
To build an atmosphere in which participants can find the confidence to trust and support each other in their own learning
To work to model the processes and behaviours we seek to transfer to others
To make ‘visible’ the training process so that participants have a real say in their own learning
To work to give each participant a felt experience of personal change and potential
To encourage participants to see the training course as one stage in a continuing process of development, rather than as an end in itself
Our training style is therefore highly active and participative, involving a wide range of training methods. Techniques and strategies are modelled throughout, and participants are constantly encouraged to relate what they are learning to real life situations.

lies in the unique blend of training and counselling expertise, which means that both your problems and your people are assured of careful and sensitive handling.

Most importantly, we create a safe environment in which teams can be open and honest, work through difficulties, and find constructive ways of going forward.‘Thank you for all your recent help to us. As I am sure you realised, some individuals were sceptical of the whole process at the beginning, but by the end they had recognised the benefits.
