“I think what you are doing is unbelievably admirable and incredibly important to stop professionals becoming desensitised. Your training session was really powerful and very emotive, and this was really refreshing, as sometimes the training provided can be stark and not provoking of thought. I really enjoyed it and have highly recommended it to the rest of my team.”

  1. I was attacked by a care in the community man, he cut my throat, but thank god I did not die from injuries. What was more upsetting was the way the case was handled by all. His file from his phsyciatrist somehow was lost, one minute he was a man with severe problems, in court he was described as an evil man he had told his phsycriatic nurse what he was going to do, i.e., go to a girls school and cut them down, or get some white women. He was sent off and told to take his tablets. Is that care for him, or the public, So very sad for all concerned, he was sent to broadmoor, on the first anniversary of his attack, he took a knife to one of the nurses, and on the first anniversary they wanted to hold the court case, who is looking after who, thank you for working on this,
