Let’s Talk Workshops Testimonials

Let’s Talk Friendships Workshops

“The workshops held at the beginning of the year were really beneficial, and I would highly recommend for the future. The children were a mixture of two previous year 2 classes and their response was so positive. They were engaged and on task with all the activities and even sat on tables with children not usually within their own friendship group, building new friendships immediately. The activities were suitable for their purpose and accessible to all children, regardless of ability. I'd like to say thank you for a really enjoyable, useful and well organised workshop.”

“Following covid closure we booked 2 Let's Talk Workshops on friendships, with Wellbeing Warriors - both KS2 classes where they struggle to get on, keep friendships. Both classes loved the morning they spend with Victoria talking about mental health, what a good friend looks and behaved like, qualities of friendship. Highly recommended by my staff and children. A Great workshop, worth the money. Thank you.”

Let’s Talk Lockdown Workshops

“The Let’s Talk Lockdown workshop that was delivered to our year 3 children was fantastic. The children were engaged from the start and throughout, it was clear they enjoyed it. Me and the other staff thought it was really nice how the negative things from lockdown were turned into something positive, helping the children to talk which was really beneficial for them. I thought it was delivered really well and fun, so the children were interested and felt comfortable talking about a sensitive topic. The children we’re so excited at the end of the day with their little goody bag and couldn’t wait to talk to their parents about it.”

“The workshops were well-planned, prepared and resourced.

The children engaged well and were delighted with the scrapbooks, keen to add things when at home. The comments from the children were very positive, and it is was clear that as well as enjoying the session, they had learned about strategies for staying calm and dealing with their worries and concerns.

The staff found the workshops very good, age appropriate with lots of activities for the children to do. The pace of the lesson was good, ensuring coverage, but with time to explore the issues being dealt with.

Staff thought the sessions were great, enabling children to open up. Following the sessions the children had lots of questions about lockdown, so teachers continued the discussions in class. For some children, especially those in class who are more prone to worrying, there has been a very positive impact with children speaking about strategies they have used at home to help them.”

Let’s Talk Mindfulness & Relaxation Workshops

“From the moment the children arrived at the Mindfulness and Relaxation workshop they were made to feel relaxed and at ease. The use of a range of sensory equipment such as lighting, and sounds helped calm and relax the children. The workshop gave pupils the chance to listen to their inner voice about challenges and problems that they may be facing as well as providing them with many different strategies that would allow the children to share these problems and worries with others. My class has a lot of children with additional needs and I found that the environment created at the workshop really made them feel included, and even when they may have struggled to be silent for periods of time or needed to move around the room, this never became a distraction to the others in the group nor were they made to feel removed from the session as they still continued to access it in their own unique ways.
Thank you very much.”

“The Mindfulness and Relaxation workshop earlier this week was fantastic. We have used it this week outside, during our outdoor learning lesson, and at other points during the school week. The children have spoken about how they have also been using it at home too. Thank you so much for delivering the workshop. You and your team were amazing - as always.”
