They become confident that they can work to attain whatever goal they set their sights on, whilst maintaining a strong sense of personal well-being.

I feel I am a lot more confident than I used to be.

I think I know now what I really want to do in my future.

Conor and Camilla were really helpful and fun to work with.

It was very interesting learning about my brain.

Learning how to breathe properly really helped me relax.

I have more confidence than I thought.

I can relax better and get rid of stress.

The study skills will be very helpful.

I loved trying out the famous speeches.

The drama games were great fun!

I really enjoyed the mindfulness and well-being because it was nice to connect with your inner-self. 

It was fun and helped me up my confidence for speaking. 

The activities at the start were quite challenging for me because it was a bit out of my comfort zone to just jump in, but after I got stuck in, it was brilliant. 

I enjoyed learning new communication skills. I liked the drama games and being able to have fun in the group. 

I loved the advice for body posture and breathing when we were speaking because I usually don’t speak out in front of groups. 

I really enjoyed the improvisation. It was hard at the start but it was fun. 

I really enjoyed how relaxed the activities were. The mindfulness was the most interesting part for me, learning how to realise my thoughts and stay in the moment was really helpful.
