“I attended your ‘How to Deal with Difficult People’ workshop in Harrogate, it was the most memorable workshops I have ever attended and still use your strategies daily!! Do you still run this workshop day? And if so will you be around in Yorkshire anytime soon? I would love to brush up my skills and have a friend who I think could benefit as well.”
“Your seminar on Difficult People was well organised, light-hearted and friendly but not light weight. Very useful tactics for dealing with workplace conflicts.”
This workshop should be mandatory with (XXX) University induction programme! Fantastic!
“Fantastic! I appreciated your flexibility and willingness to adapt to our needs and timing. Clearly experienced, and tried and tested, which makes a big difference, Thank you.”

“During the workshop on Dialogue, Barry said: ‘Touch the people you come into contact with on a daily basis… the effects will ripple out.’ This will help to reduce the frustration and anxieties I feel sometimes at being unable to do more. Thank you.”
Clinical Consultant, Healthcare
“Thank you for the very interesting and inspiring training course on Solution Focused Mediation. Within a few short minutes of the course beginning I felt that this was going to be the one that made a difference. Throughout the two days the room was buzzing even as the workshop drew to a close and many were feeling a little tired. Having since lead a Group Supervision and listened to their encouraging comments, I can assure you that my colleagues and I are looking forward to putting the training into practice. Indeed some already have, and they were very enthusiastic about the method.”
