FEEDBACK FROM COURSE PARTICIPANTS
This course was great - thoroughly informative, emotive. and gave me the confidence to pursue offering massage. I appreciate your energy, light yet connected way of teaching. Course structure was great and I look forward to learning with you again.
You set a welcoming and trusting atmosphere/tone from the start.All materials are very clear. It's such an important and useful course. I wish there were more of you so more could learn this skill! You make it so accessible and are so welcoming of non-therapists like me.
I found very helpful the way you created an atmosphere of meeting everyone’s needs. So for example, I felt OK about saying I’d prefer not to have my legs done. All the practical examples you used were really helpful for me as I have little experience yet. Your teaching style helped to draw everyone out to share their knowledge without feeling embarrassed, so I learned a lot from the participants as well as you!
Very informative; excellent knowledge from theory and practice.
Feedback on my training days
Wow! this course has surpassed all that I thought it would be. Thank you for sharing your knowledge of dementia & experiences of walking with people with dementia.
Accessible & professional, very fresh & engaging. Responded sensitively to questions & to the energy of the group. It has been a really enjoyable & inspiring day.
The comfortable space, calming music and tea combined with a great model of care and very professional therapists – makes each visit a great experience and has helped me begin to feel better.
A very thorough, insightful guide into the world of someone living with dementia, relevant and extremely valuable to anyone who has contact with people with the condition whether they work with massage or not.
Feedback on my one to one training
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course here today and it has been like a door opening & making a connection .... Thank you!
Presentations and talks
Nicolle spoke at our Talk Dementia event in the week of Dementia Action week. The topic of the use of massage in dementia would have been new to the majority of the attendees. The talk was aimed at the right level, the presentation especially a youtube video Nicolle showed was extremely moving, but also thought provoking. The presentation had different techniques to meet all the different types of learning styles we have. It was interesting, gave us ideas we could use in every day practice and made us all compelled to learn more about the subject.
Feedback from seminars
I attended the lectures/workshops in relation to dementia to assist me with my mum. And certainly Nicolle Mitchell absolutely delivered. Her extensive knowledge & delivery of these courses/workshops both prepared & assisted me to combat any situations I may encounter.
Brilliant - realistic to the problems of dementia - I feel inspired to do more and find out more. Made it a more positive experience.
Explained well, friendly and informative. Learnt new massage technique (Massaging People Who Have Dementia) I like Nicolle's sense of humour and down to earth approach. We did a good routine to be used with clients. I would like to learn more.
Nicolle's sense of humour lightened the topic and made good points which I could use in my practice and family. Very good information.
I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar. It was excellent. The presenter was extremely knowledgable and the content and delivery was comprehensive and well placed. Was the best seminar I have attended. It was the main reason for my visit to the show and it did not disappoint and I hope to attend training with Nicole in September.
