Your seminar on Stress Management was very inspiring and useful to me. I found it beneficial because it has provoked preemptive actions on some projects. I look forward to listening to the seminar recording again and again.

"I learned a great deal in that one evening about Stress Management and have been able to pass on valuable advice to colleagues within work. As a direct result, our company has now implemented a 'Stress Policy', whereby we hold a meeting every week to discuss aspects of our work and any possible problems we are having. Consequently, our work rate has improved and a better rapport within the office is evident.

When anybody asks me for a recommendation of a person to contact regarding Stress Management, I always refer them to your website. I tell them to watch out for when you are giving a Seminar in the region and encourage them to attend at all costs.

In summing up, the only thing I can say about the Seminar at Wakefield is that, in my opinion you and your group gave an extremely successful demonstration with sound advice.

Carole The Writer

Tolley's Managing Stress in the Workplace
"An excellent book, on an area which is of increasing concern to employers and employees alike. It combines good technical material with many practical examples, which differentiates it from most other books on the subject. Highly recommended to all professionals and those who have a passing involvement in stress management. The breadth of interest in the topic was amply demonstrated when I last visited the British Library, where the security official in the Social Science reading room keenly recorded details of the text! "
Graham Williams, Director, Intralex Ltd

Chris Roycroft-Davis, Motivational Speaker, Media Expert, Author and Broadcaster

Carole The Counsellor

"Following a stress-related breakdown, I approached Carole three years ago for counselling. I chose her because the Internet informed me that she was a specialist in stress management and because her practice was local to my home. It was my good fortune to have found her in this way, because she has been hugely instrumental in my recovery. Initially I was very reclusive and had become frightened of the world. My coping skills had gone and Carole helped me regain them bit by bit using a variety of methods including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and gradual exposure to situations to expand my "comfort zones" ie what I could comfortably deal with.

I was particularly impressed by Carole's perception and ability to analyse the situation - as a professional myself I appreciated the feeling that we were working together to regain my skills. At the same time, she was great in lifting my spirits when depression settled and I thought I would never get better; she constantly reminded me of the progress I had made.

I have now reached the stage where I am considering retraining for a new career and I no longer need counselling, as Carole has given me skills to cope with life. I continue however to use her as a life coach to help me decide the path I shall take in the future, and I value her advice highly in this respect. I cannot recommend her highly enough for anyone going through stress burnout."
Chris G.

"Carole is a dynamic, knowledgeable and presents her subject with passion and humour. The environment she creates always feels safe allowing as much participation in the practical exercises as each person wishes. Although Carole is one of the best teachers I have had, she is not a full cup and listens and learns too."
