Corporate Training:

‘Our company has engaged Margaret on a number of occasions to help us devise a staff welfare programme including individual and group work and to deliver various training sessions in this area. All of Margaret’s programmes have proved to be the most popular training that we offer and the feedback from all her sessions have left us hoping that she would deliver training in all our training needs areas!’

Organisational Training:

‘Our youth service have worked with Margaret Curran for over 10 years in a variety of roles including Staff Conflict Issue, Cognitive Behaviour Training, Induction Workshops to Early School Leavers Projects and One to One support for young people and staff. She is skilled, well-prepared and approachable. She has a wonderful talent for dealing with situations in a common sense, down-to-earth manner while maintaining professionalism at all times. Margaret has great understanding of the service and target group we work with and her work has been extremely beneficial and enlightening and to staff and young people. We cannot recommend her enough’.

Certificate in CBT:

‘In 2014, over a period of 3 months I attended 5 days Training in Rational Emotive Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with Margaret Curran. The term “life changing “is used far too often – but in this case is actually an understatement for the effect her training had. I had so many “penny dropping” moments over the course of that 5 days and the skills I learnt I continue to use on a daily basis. Margaret is passionate about CBT and that passion translates into a dynamic and magnetic Training Experience, where you completely re-examine your interactions with your own self, the people in your life and the world at large. She is without exception the best Trainer I have ever seen in action – no one else even comes close’.

Personalised Staff Training:

‘I engaged Margaret to deliver staff training to my school on a number of occasions as I have found that what she has to say and how she says it has left the teachers upskilled in such a way that it has an immediate effect on the classroom and the children in it. Her facilitation skills are captivating and her sessions are always engaging, humorous and to the point! My staff always get so much from her sessions. She is always a hard act to follow!’

‘In 2013, I asked Margaret Curran to develop and deliver a personalised one day training programme for our entire team of staff, to help them face the challenges of working with victims of Domestic Abuse and Homelessness. My brief was rather vague and aspirational – but despite this Margaret delivered a programme which really identified the main issues the team struggled with and gave very focused solutions for dealing with those issues. I’ve noticed a change not only in team spirit since that day, but in the positivity and “can do” attitude that staff now approach their work with. I know that what we learned that day we can also apply to our own personal lives, to give us a greater sense of control and empowerment in all we do’.

Personal Development Training:

‘I have participated in group training sessions with Margaret Curran. Her training style is relaxed and informal but deceptive in that you are definitely challenged to face your irrational thought processes. You always feel like you are the only one in the room – despite being part of a group session- such is her ability to ensure that the training is tailored to meet the needs of the individuals participating’.
