  • The training I received was an amazing insight into the adolescent brain. It helped me to fully understand and empathise with the young people in the Academy who undergo stressful situations. It has provided me with many ideas for how to further support them when brain arousal may be high, and this has really helped to build better and longer lasting positive relationships with the pupils.

  • They loved you! I was talking to some staff just today, they were chatting about some of the things you said. That’s impressive – they forget what I say almost immediately!

  • I can’t praise Di Lobbett highly enough. After years of heart-breaking anxiety our sons’ behaviour was becoming increasingly unmanageable. Di helped us to understand our son’s anxiety and too much power as the underlying causes for his behaviour. She taught us how to help him and has given him the confidence to help himself.

  • There has been such fantastic feedback from Thursday from colleagues – ‘Inspirational’! ‘The best day’s training we have EVER had.’ ‘Can Di come back every year?’  ‘Absolutely brilliant.’

  • Thank you so much for last night, what a brilliant talk. I tried “I need you to unload the dishwasher for me now, thank you” and it worked. I didn’t get a word back, he just did it and again this morning, I am amazed!!! “I am spreading the word….”
