“I wouldn’t usually enrol on an online training as I prefer face-to-face learning, but I found the course was easy, informative and made me want to progress to finish. It has shown me the importance of giving children some attention time and to listen to their worries. I am using Story Massage with my granddaughter at present and she is sleeping so much better. But I can also see the potential benefits for play schools, libraries and NCT groups.” Jacqui Torah, Reflexologist and Baby Reflexology Instructor
“Studying online means that I could fit it into pockets of spare time which was a real bonus. I really enjoyed the interactive video clips and seeing the trainers throughout the course. Story Massage is a powerful tool that can be integrated into all parts of my life. This includes two nurture groups in a primary school, and the retreat that I run for adoptive families.” Mandy Worsley, Relax Kids Coach and Adoptive Mother
“I can honestly say the Story Massage training is one of the best courses I have done as far as content and support go. Online courses can sometimes make you feel lonely, or alone, but not this one! I was sad that I couldn’t attend in person due to the need for accommodation and travel costs, but it was an excellent alternative. It was well laid out and you feel supported every step of the way. You feel very included. I would encourage anyone interested to dive in … I really would.” Tracey Alston, Practice Nurse and Holistic Therapist working in a respite unit for children with profound additional needs.
“What can I say apart from WOW! I have been working with children for many years and understood the benefits of positive touch, so I completed the online course just for fun. However, learning about Story Massage has totally changed how I work, the children absolutely love it and are so excited to take part. The online course was easy to follow, fantastic clear videos and gaining certification was a clear process. Highly recommended.” Cheryl Kennedy, Autism and Wellbeing Consultant for AIW Consultancy.
“I felt engaged…. more so that I thought would be possible via an online course where positive, nurturing touch is at the centre! I am impressed by the authors’ attention to detail and recognition of different learning styles. It is a well-balanced and varied course with excellent pacing of sessions to build up confidence. Most of all, I appreciated the gentle guidance with tips, suggestions and lots of inspiring and useful links to resources.” Helene Goulet, Elementary School Teacher and MISP Instructor.
“I really enjoyed the flexibility of the course. From a management point of view this was fantastic as it did not mean releasing staff from school to attend the training which can be a huge barrier. This has enabled us to put forward a large number of staff to complete the online training. Four of us completed the training at the same time. We set up a group chat through our email system to discuss any issues, suggestions etc. The main challenge of online courses is always lack of opportunities to share with others but I feel the Facebook Community Group and You Tube videos are a fantastic way of supporting those who are completing the training.” Debbie McCulloch, Principal Teacher, Beatlie School Campus
“By far the best online course I have done. I am not usually a fan of online training. However, due to personal circumstances and work, I was unable to attend a day course. And this course was fantastic! The use of text, videos and the chance to reflect and jot down notes was great. I had heard some wonderful things about the course, and it certainly lived up to expectations.” Kate Malley, Assistant Head and MISP Instructor.
“When I bought your book a couple years ago, I was wishing that I could attend your workshop in the UK so thank you again for creating your online course. It has helped me gain better understanding of the importance of positive and nurturing touch and to feel more confident and skilled at guiding Story Massage sessions.” Helene Goulet, Elementary School Teacher and MISP Instructor.
“I really enjoyed the course and finding out all the different ways that Story Massage can be used. It was fun thinking up new ideas and being creative. I have the book but the course really added to my understanding. I found the exercises very helpful especially reflecting back on questions and prompts. In fact, I loved it all so much that I completed it really quickly!” Faye Powell, Baby Massage and Yoga Instructor
“I thoroughly enjoyed the online course as it explained everything in detail and it was easy to follow and understand what was required. There was a real bonus of having the video and audio links. This brought the learning alive and offered positive reinforcement throughout the course. Lots of opportunity for follow-up support too. Excellent course.” Clare Gibbons, Owner of Pohutukawa Kids, New Zealand
“The online course is very supportive, practical and easy to use. All the important factors are repeated which helps learning. I loved using the stickers and creating my own stories. I was amazed at how the ten strokes can be used in so many different ways. The sky’s the limit!” Emma-Jayne Beattie, Holistic Therapist at Tranquility Toes Reflexology
“A great course that is easy to follow and can fit in well with your life. I feel confident and comfortable with using the ten strokes and love the fact that there are endless opportunities for sharing and adapting Story Massage. As a practicing MISP Instructor, Story Massage will be a valuable extension of my work in schools and with parents and small groups. There is a lot of support after the course too, which is helpful.” Sally Hudson, Massage in Schools Programme Instructor
