A teacher on a Positive Participation dissemination course facilitated by Judith said of the course and Judith:
Spot on. Sharing of very useful ideas. Practical ways forward . . . Relaxed and articulate, inducing an unintimidating ambience, Judith, you're a gem . . . The grey has been lifted, some light has been shed at the end of the tunnel. I can now move forward with enthusiasm and hope.
Owen Roberts, Outreach Manager at Brook Manchester/Central Manchester PCT says:
I was fortunate enough to work with Judith on an evaluation project of a school-based sex and relationships education programme. This was a consultation exercise with young people designed to obtain their views on SRE generally and the effectiveness of the programme particularly. Judith facilitated the groups with grace, respect and subtle rigour: grace in the ease with which she related to the young people; respect in her careful acknowledgement of their insight and opinions; subtle rigour in the understated manner with which she maintained the groups' focus.
