It is always lovely to receive some affirmation for what we do. To get this whilst doing something I love, is an absolute privilege. Here are just a few short examples of the comments left on my feedback reports.
"Fantastic service supporting staff wellbeing in our school and indeed across the MAC. On a practical level, Adam is a pleasure to work with, and runs his business in a way that makes it very easy to recommend him and his services. Adam never pays lip service to a “wellbeing agenda” and believes in sincere, impactful support and guidance. Impact is evident in colleagues supported through management of their workload, openness to coaching and openness to putting their wellbeing as central to the wellbeing of all. With Adam’s compassionate but relentless focus on developing and attuning staff short term and long term resilience levels and wellness priorities, our team is in a much better place. He has also worked with some of our children in delivering mental health aspects of our curriculum, which were always received very well by both the learners and the colleagues involved. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adam, and would gladly discuss in further detail any aspect of the work that Adam has undertaken for us! Recommended without hesitation!!"

"In March, a week before the Covid-19 lockdown for schools and indeed the country as a whole, Adam met with me to discuss carrying out a wellbeing audit for all of our staff. The timing of this introduction was quite fortuitous for us, not simply as we had additional support for our staff during such challenging times but (and little did I know this at the time), to have on board an exceptionally insightful, passionate, wise and warm character working within our team felt like an absolute God send! Due to Adam’s ability to listen intently, empathise, his depth of understanding of both the school system and human behaviour, oh and his sense of humour, Adam has been embraced by all of our staff, he is now viewed as an honouree member of the St Mary’s team; whether he likes it or not!
Since carrying out the audit, Adam has been able to provide us with bespoke wellbeing support for our workplace. Following his analysis of the staff audit, we have devised a wellbeing action plan which we are very much looking for to actioning throughout the new academic year. Due to Adam’s list of talents; outstanding headteacher, BESD specialist and of course his personal and professional experience in the field of mental wealth, Adam has been able to provide multifaceted support to our school over a relatively short period of time. Not only will we be working on enriching the mental wealth of our pupils and staff with Adam’s but he will be providing support in our approach to behaviour/relationship development between staff and pupils, exploring our SEND offer and providing leadership support.
We truly feel blessed to have such a ‘guru’ on our team and are very excited about the transformation which our school has begun for our pupil’s and staff with Adam’s genuine commitment and desire to see our school community reach its full potential. Our humble and deepest thanks to you Adam."

"Couldn't recommend Adam highly enough as a thought leader in Mental Health."

"That wasn't training. It was an experience from start to finish. Absolutely loved it. Thank you!!"
"Before the training I was scared about dealing with the most challenging behaviours in the classroom. Adam made me realise that I am not alone and his strategies and ideas will definitely be used during my practice. I never thought I would laugh during behaviour management training"
"Adam put on a performance that made you want to sit up and listen"
"Finding good quality behaviour management training is very hard. Adam immediately engaged with the students and had them hanging on his every word by about the 5th minute!! Will be using Adam for all our Behaviour and Mental Health training from now on"
"Adam made me realise that I am doing things well and gave me confidence in myself and my abilities"
"Who better to talk about mental health than someone who has been there, lived it and done it!? Brilliant!!"
And my personal favourite....
"Give that man an Oscar!!"
