We provide first aid training, with a personal touch, to a wide variety of clients in Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds and nationwide. We can offer an in-house service if you have a number of people from your organisation who require training or provide places for individuals at open courses. Just let us know your requirements and we'll do our best to help.
Currently our primary focus is on mental health first aid training with a mission to increase the number of mental health first aiders in all walks of life. This means we train people who won't ever replace expert advice but will be able to recognise signs and symptoms of poor mental health, provide non-judgemental support, signpost to specialist help and promote wellbeing.
Having worked as a TV presenter, early years educator and a school matron, as well as having studied psychotherapy our lead trainer and founder, Su Porter Scott, is ideally placed to deliver both regular first aid and mental health first aid courses.

"Su had such a wealth of experience. It is a real skill to make people feel comfortable enough to share their own personal experience and Su managed this to the benefit of the whole group."
"An outstanding course that was both thought provoking and gave great insight into what to look for and how to deal with it."
"Su was outstanding. She was exactly the right person, in my opinion, to deliver the course. She was full of so much information and had a lot of experience dealing with people both young and old. This, to me, was the key, as mental health issues affect everyone."
"I highly recommend Su. Her delivery of the course was fantastic – clear and concise. A great day had by all of us."
"Such a great training event. We all loved it and got so much from it. Thank you Su from all of us at HOB Academy and Salons."
"Your attendance and excellent input on mental health was a very positive experience and I would recommend any employer to use you. Indeed, I hope our contact continues. Our staff took away lots of learning from the day you spent with us. "
