I’ve been fortunate to have worked with a variety of groups in order to deliver workshops and courses that enhance children and young people’s lives and wellbeing. A few of them are below. I’ve also worked in the family home and with home educated children, as well as in the great outdoors with Forest School.
Be Free Young Carers operates across South Oxfordshire, offering dedicated support and advice to aid the lives and wellbeing of young carers in Oxfordshire. From mentoring to peer support, social activities, and exciting trips, Be Free is their for young carers and I have had the privilege to run half-term workshops for them.
Thanks again for the wonderful sessions that you facilitated for our young carers. They all got a lot out of the day and had a lot of fun at the same time.CHRISSY, BE FREE YOUNG CARERS
St Gregory the Great Primary School is part of the Dominic Barberi Multi Academy Company and serves children in the Cowley and Blackbird Leys area of Oxford. I have worked with groups in Year 3 and for extended intensive periods 1:1 with children in Year 2.
Ark-T in Cowley is a space for the arts and I ran Little Stars classes here during the holidays as well as being asked to support during the holidays with a girls group. Our time together allowed them to forge stronger relationships with each other which held up for the remaining time they had together.
This was the first time the young people had met. Roy did really well in making them feel comfortable and bringing them together as a group. He was confident and made everyone feel relaxed and at ease. The young people said that the session was really fun…and they felt relaxed by the end.JENNY T, ARK T
Our Lady’s Primary School is part of the Dominic Barberi Multi Academy Company and serves children in the Cowley and Blackbird Leys area of Oxford. I ran termly sessions for some of their high-profile SEN children on a weekly basis, helping them learn to regulate their emotions.
Roy was a professional throughout, very easy to liaise with, and gentle in his approach. The results over just six sessions prove how beneficial the programme is.Mrs P. McGoVERN, FAMILY SUPPORT WORKER, OUR LADY’S PRIMARY
The Warriner School in Bloxham is a secondary school that had a group of Year 11 girls feeling the pressure of exam season. Over several sessions we were able to explore the negative feelings and emotions and get them through their exams. I also worked with a group of Sixth Formers during lunch as a destress/chillout time.
Your sessions were extremely useful and many of the girls say they use the techniques quite a lot now.ELIZABETH JAMES, RAISING STANDARDS Co-ORDINATOR
Members of The Scout Association in Oxford tasked me with creating a relaxation activity that also tied into bonfire and firework safety. Quite a challenge but an amazing night had and being a Scouter myself, it was great to interact with another group and show them ways to look after their wellbeing rather than just traditional Scouting skills for a change.
Fantastic visit from Roy to our Beaver Colony. Roy was engaging with the young people and the flow of the evening was well delivered. The Beavers stayed focused throughout the evening and left feeling relaxed and with some new techniques to try at home. Highly recommended.SUSIE PEDDLE, BEAVER SCOUT LEADER, 8th OXFORD
Rainbows are a part of the Guide Association and I’ve visited a couple of groups in Oxford regularly to provide Rainbow themed sessions which include craftwork. These sessions are especially important for the girls as they form part of their Think Resilient badge.
As a Guide Leader I wanted a unique experience for our Rainbows. This was very reasonably priced, well pitched to the age group, and filled our standard unit meeting. The session was delivered very professionally, and the girls had a great (and relaxing!) time. I knew you were good but I would highly recommend you.KATHERINE HAIGH, 1st OSNEY RAINBOWs AND BOTLEY RAINBOWS
The Abingdon Damascus Youth Project provides youth work and opportunities for young people. As part of their holiday activity offer, I worked partnered with other charities to create a bespoke workshop for an afternoon of chilling and skill learning.
The Henry Box School is a secondary school in Witney who tied in my production of All at Sea with their syllabus. As part of this, I ran a workshop for their A-Level students around storytelling and directing.
Thank you so much for delivering a very insightful and enjoyable workshop. We learned some vital techniques and it was a great experience.students feedback, the henry box school
