Caroline is the perfect instructor!
Caroline made the course interesting and with her excellent teaching, knowledge and lesson planning made this a very enjoyable course. I would happily do any other MHFA course she is instructing.
Always inclusive and welcoming of all group members. Took the time to ask and check in if we were all ok. Offered to revise topics or if we had any questions throughout the entire process. Made the learning experience enjoyable and comfortable at all times.
Amazing. Everyone should have access to these courses and be encouraged to be a MHFA accredited or compliant individual.
Sensationally delivered course. The material delivered and the way that it was delivered was in a clear, easy to understand and action. There was adequate time for discussion and clarity if required.
Caroline is engaging and inclusive of all participants. Respectful and encouraging of those who might be shy or reluctant to speak up to answer questions or join in conversations. Caroline has a warm and welcoming manner as well as being extremely knowledgeable in the field.
Caroline is passionate about Mental Health & easy to talk to & understand.
Very knowledgeable instructor with great ideas to help me feel more confident talking to young people in crisis.
Was incredibly great with the way Caroline delivered the course information. She made sure you understood and was happy for us to ask as many questions as we liked.
Very knowledgeable instructor with a great approach.
Very clear and concise, allowed the student to ask questions and responded without making the student feel that sharing personal experiences were not relevant and afterwards checked in on every student that attended to ensure they were safe and feeling okay.
Caroline is an excellent facilitator. She was very friendly and approachable, and demonstrated excellent knowledge of the material that was presented.
