Feedback for The Decider Life Skills
Youth Work Leader
"There isn’t a day that goes by when we don’t use The Decider
Life Skills with our young people. The variety of
skills showed in the handbook ensures that each person can select the skills
that work for their individual needs. The trainers book is just as clearly
written as the young person's handbook, which makes it really simple to
teach with individuals or small groups." EC

"The Decider Skills offer a fun and interactive
opportunity to engage young people and their families in a DBT skills
approach without the formality of “textbook” DBT . I would highly recommend
them to other CAMHS teams . The Life Skills are a gift for all and I would
advocate that they should be incorporated into the education curriculum
within PHSE lessons." SM

Decider Life Skills are at the forefront of a revolution in how we think
about mental health. The skills are straightforward, practical and fun which
makes them easier to remember when we’re under stress. I use them with
clients, with my children and for myself."
Decider Life Skills are a really helpful way to engage children and young
people in discussions around their mental wellbeing and emotional health.
Not only is the handbook clear, it is fun and engaging too."

"I regularly incorporate The Decider Life Skills into my
therapy sessions. The Decider Life Skills are simple, but very
effective practical skills that can be used by everyone. Many of my
clients have reported that they have found the skills very useful and
helpful in managing their difficulties." LF
High School Teacher
"We've been using The Decider Life Skills for over a year now at school and
have seen a marked improvement in the way that the students tackle
difficulties in their everyday life. The Decider Life Skills have been a
really fun way to teach the students (and ourselves!) to take responsibility
for their emotions and actions and to act in a more thoughtful way. The
visuals really help in our class as an instant reminder of each skill and
the whole package has just made teaching about mental health and wellbeing
so simple and fun." LV

Feedback from The Decider Life
Thank you so much for putting on this brilliant course. My daughter had
already done some work with a lovely mental health nurse but it had not
really made sense to her. Michelle and Carol put on a show yesterday that
was entertaining and so realistic that it was easy to see how their methods
could easily be applied to make good changes. My daughter was certainly very
enthusiastic which was a joy to see. Thank you once again.
This should be taught in all schools.
I wanted to drop you a
short line thanking you for putting on the above course last Friday. I have
to say it is the best course I have attended in many a year. Not only were
both Michelle and Carol were fantastic presenters, but their Life Skills are
straight-forward and (importantly) relatively easy to remember. I fully
endorse their view that their message needs to get it out into the community
at large, and if at all possible to our youth. Thank you.
informative, a big eye opener. There is a lot I can take away from this and
learn about myself and how I can to change for the better.
Very beneficial workshop. This would have helped a
lot earlier in my mental health journey. Very engaging, dynamic
lecturers/teachers. I think all (health professionals) for their own
practice would benefit from this brief workshop.
Very useful tools to
enable me to think before taking actions. Will help me to build on my values
and break cycles where previously I may have acted on impulse. Thank you.
Very thought provoking.
Really useful and valuable workshop.
This strikes me as an excellent, accessible, non-threatening presentation of
vital life skills, valuable to professionals and individuals in need. It is
applicable to a wide age group, and level of education, and promotes
confidence in your own ability to cope. I wish all families could experience
Tremendously powerful workshop. Everyone should know
