Don't just take our word for it

"Meredith is an amazing trainer, who is a true pioneer in creating trauma informed schools and classrooms. Her workshops" are inspirational and transformative, as she draws on her own experience of leading an underperforming school and remaking it into a place of nurturance and true social emotional learning.

Meredith has done amazing work with our staff to transform and challenge our staff to become more trauma focused and aware. It is through this amazing training we have had a significant reduction in office referrals because staff are better equipped to creating a calm classroom. These trainings have been transformational in our own lives which has had an impact for our students. We could not be more pleased with Meredith and the impact she has and continues to have on our staff.
