Feedback on previous courses:
Just to say THANK YOU. It was a great course and lovely to meet you and the ladies, good experience, and hopefully be able to put it to some good practice. - Dee Terry, Wavelengths
I have always felt in our industry that there isn’t enough focus on dealing with our clients mental health, which can be taxing on us as stylists who are trained highly in our craft but not in what is required to deal with our clients who often throw many personal problems at us whilst they are in our chair.
This course has not only provided me with the tools to recognise key signs and symptoms with my clients, but will also enable me to help my staff, and on a personal level my family and friends. I have really enjoyed the course and the process, and I feel confident going back into the salon with the right tools for myself, my clients, and my team. This course is for everyone, and I can highly recommend it in giving you a sound knowledge of mental health first aid. Clair was excellent with her support, and the peers I met was a fantastic bonus. This was time well invested for my business, and I can honestly say I’m so glad and proud to have my certificate. - Teresa Weller of Teresa Weller HairART
My name is Emilia John and I work at Gilded Hair. I have just completed the mental health first aid course run by Good Salon Guide, and for me this has been not only understanding how to be of a support to someone but also a journey of self-reflection.
Coming onto the course I was a little anxious, being that I do not run a team of people and being so young, but it blew my expectations and the amount I have gained from it was incredible as well as gaining new friends!
My instructors were great at delivering the course, and they made it such a comfortable space! I would highly recommend this course to any salon or stylist.
Thank you GSG for bringing this opportunity about. - Emilia John, Gilded Hair
Just wanted to thank you both for making the course both thought provoking and informative, I feel so empowered to look after my own metal health as well as support others. Will definitely be spreading the word! - Lisa Blowey, Quinns Hairdressing
