Here is what you said about the ELSA Conference…

Jun 30, 2022

“Thank you so very much for today’s ELSA conference. It was such an inspirational day with superb speakers and workshop leaders. I have gained so much from all of them and cannot wait to use the ideas in my ELSA practice.” 

“A fantastic day – it exceeded my expectations. I was really engaged listening to the speakers, and I thoroughly enjoyed the two workshops. It was great to meet other ELSAs as I work in a stand-alone ELSA role. There was a real buzz about the day, and I feel very re-energised by it! Thank you so much to all involved. It all came together so well!”

“You must both be weary after your fantastic organisation of the day but please know it is very much appreciated. Can’t wait for the next one!” 

“Just wanted to say today’s conference was fantastic and I learnt so many great new things to try out at school, so I feel freshly inspired again! Well done and thank you to Chantelle and Laura for all your hard work, it was a real success.”

“It was so good to get back to face to face meetings in a professional, yet friendly and approachable way. I always feel supported, valued, and loved whenever we meet up, be it in person or online. I always feel reassured that I am doing the best I can for the children I see and know that you are always there for us.”

 “Outstanding! I enjoyed every part. It was run extremely well, and the content was always relevant. I took a lot away from the day.”

 “Externalising feelings – This was fantastic!!!!! Really engaging, great balance of theory and strategies to use. Would have loved even more time for this workshop as I found it SO useful!” 

“I enjoyed hearing Dr Tina Rae speak. Looking back, the thing that stands out in my mind is the importance of ‘recharging’. I’m a big one for reflecting, but I don’t always give myself the time to recharge. I look around me and see that others also forget about the importance of recharging. I will be encouraging this in those I work with—both adults and children.”

“I found it very informative, inspiring, and now feel recharged, thank you so much Laura and Chantelle for a great day!”

“Tree of Life – I loved this workshop! I came away with lots of ideas for using the approach and with several children in mind that I will use this with. I especially appreciated the opportunity to do the intervention myself as I believe this helped me feel ready to deliver it to children.”

“I absolutely loved the conference and found it incredibly useful. It was really nice to meet up with lots of other ELSAs and all the talks and workshops were really relevant to my work as an ELSA at school. I can’t wait for the next one!”

 “Understanding self-harm – Excellent workshop! Informative and reassuring regarding the challenges we are facing. Clear guidelines on our roles and responsibilities. I was engaged the whole time.”

 “It was a great opportunity to talk to other ELSAs, to swap skills and techniques, and to hear from experts who can help us in particularly difficult times. It boosted my enthusiasm and improved my well-being.”

 “I think this is an important day in an ELSA’s year to meet up, chat over experiences and enjoy. It’s made even better by the skill and knowledge of the presenters. Thank you!”

 “It was a brilliant day. It was very informative and a great experience to be with so many other ELSAs.”
