A Message from Vanessa:

My mission is to spread the word to as many people as possible and to ultimately reduce the stigma surrounding Mental Health. 

I want to create an awareness of Mental Health through education, passing on my knowledge to people through training and education to empower learners so they can support & assist people both in the workplace and their daily lives who are struggling with Mental Health.

I describe myself as a confident deliverer who is knowledgeable about the subject of Mental Health through having personally experienced Mental Health issue.  Therefore I approach my training with understanding and kindness.

Kind words from our clients.

Thank you for the 2 day Mental Health First Aider course.  It was very informative and run very professionally.  Fabulous tutor who knew her subject and interacted well with students.  

Jane Hillman

Founder, Tranquility Health & Wellbeing

I attended a Mental Health First Aid Courses at Gap Personnel delivered by Vanessa for the last 2 days.  Not only was Vanessa engaging but she made a very serious and daunting topic really manageable.  Always making sure the group were comfortable with the content and clear on the key learning points.  I enjoyed the courses so much and now feel very prepared which is down to Vanessa’s skilful delivery and warm and friendly personality! Thank you so much Vanessa!
