What workshop organisers and participants say...

 

"Katie Elliott's session was the highlight of the day. Lots of useful tips."  

 

"Genuinely inspiring stuff!"   

 

"Really super feedback coming in from all your sessions. You really went down a storm!"

 

"Intuitive and thoughtful; her quiet presence is compelling and engaging.  She has a warm and friendly style and is able to talk about personal experiences with authenticity, laced with self-deprecating humour."

 

"It got us thinking about how we look after ourselves and each other, particularly during times of strain. The tools you provided were useful and your openness about your own experiences really helped in setting the intention in a trusting environment. We all loved your style and you put everyone at ease."  

 

"She has a quiet presence that unlocks people."

 

"Made me stop and think a lot about how and what we do. The importance of some of what she talked about didn’t really sink in until I was reflecting on it on the way home last night. I liked that, as it meant that Katie had enabled me to take a fresh look and reach my own conclusions, not imposed hers."  

 

As well as working with people within professional organisations of all kinds, Katie has extensive experience as a community animateur. She has particular experience of leading and facilitating groups for children and teenagers, people with mental health challenges and physical and learning impairments, and older people (especially those living with dementia).
