I am really enjoying how thought provoking this information is and how it makes it practical and easy to explain and utilise in so many different areas of my patient care.   GP Step 1-2

The concepts covered were very useful and interesting. I am planning to discuss what I have learnt with my colleagues and aim to help improve the wellbeing of children in our community using these new skills.  Trainee GP who completed Core Step 1-2

This training has changed the way I practice at work and in my home relationships. I have enjoyed learning online and found the modules manageable with enough to be stimulating. I really enjoyed the dynamic of the group - it was interesting hearing everyone's varied experiences. The changes I have made have benefited me personally, and my family and my professional role.  I want to carry on and learn more.  General Practitioner who completed Core and Extended Learning Journey

I now see so many of my patients through a different lens. Before this training I used to feel anxious and sometimes intimidated by the highly escalated presentations. Now I know how to respond helpfully and can see a way forward to help them that makes complete sense. This makes all the difference.  General Practitioner  

I signed up for I Matter Training because I was struggling with my teenage daughter.  I have found the training life changing and an unexpected benefit has been the impact on my confidence at work.  Practice Nurse

I am an experienced social worker with many years of practice experience in children's safeguarding. When I worked through this training I was shocked to discover how much I didn't know. If I had undesrtood these concepts earlier in my career I would have been able to be more helpful to families who were struggling with their children.  Child Protection Social Worker

i Matter training fits perfectly with my therapeutic training. It has many areas of commonality with family therapy training, eg helping families to correct relationship dynamics which have gone askew, enabling all family members to be heard, valued & responsible.  Family Therapist and Experienced Social Worker

    “This course has been so much more than I expected it to be. I have learned so many things that have changed my understanding of myself and of my child. I have worked with many services before this but this has really made the difference. Now I know why I Matter ”

  • I Matter Training

    “The I Matter approach of dealing with the adults before the children is such a useful way to look at things and has turned the dynamics on its head for me. I realised my stress levels are having a huge impact on all of us as a family and learning to change this is starting to make a difference.”

    “EVERY parent and teacher would benefit from this course. Parent carers are a group of people I would like to get this to. This would be a fantastic opportunity to bring a very isolated group of people together to improve the situation they are in. ”

  • I Matter Training

    “The Headteacher and other staff now come to me. They are starting to spot the families who would be helped by some I Matter Training. I work flexibly - sometimes just with the parents and sometimes with the parent and child together.. We use the posters and I can see the moments when the pennies start to drop. This is a new way of working for us. I find it exciting to see the changes that happen. ”

    “The registration questionnaire really got me thinking. I realised how isolated I had let myself become and that this was not helping me or my child. I took action the next day and phoned a friend. I also made another follow-up appointment to speak with my GP. ”
