"Can I just say a huge thank you to yourself, Rayna and Graham for yesterday. The delegates were buzzing about the whole event and our feedback has been overwhelmingly positive . The workshops delivered by Premier Life Skills were excellent - staff have already told me how they are successfully dealing with a difficult person in an assertive approach this morning using some of the techniques you suggested - and I'm sure will make a huge difference to our professional (and maybe even private!) lives."

“Jane Thomas and Bev McKay of Premier Life Skills recently spoke at a recent event on stress management at SenSpa. With backgrounds in medicine and many years experience of dealing with and advising on the issues around stress management, there is no doubt that they are both extremely qualified. Their talk was interesting, illuminating and engaging and I would not hesitate to invite them back to address any audience, from the individual who wishes to make informed lifestyle choices, to the savvy human resources executive who is embarking on an organisational stress management programme.”
