"Thank you so much Rachel for providing excellent training for our Befrienders and volunteers who wanted to learn how to engage with My Life, My Story. The content was clear and thoughtfully explained and you made the ‘technical’ side (taking photos/uploading them etc) easy too. Thank you too for providing processes and materials we can use in the development of the service."
Chief Executive, Age UK Surrey
"Thank you for being such a delightful person to work with, for coming up with such an excellent idea and for all your help in putting everything together. Your professionalism, gentle promoting and ability to listen and pick out the relevant details was amazing, as was the way you presented the text and photographs. I am so pleased to have a record of family memories to pass on and am looking forward to seeing you again when we tackle my husband's memories."
"I want to say how much I enjoyed the process of writing down my life story . Talking about my life brought to mind many events which I had forgotten about . As we talked it became easier to put them into a clear order . I thought it would be difficult to know where to start but this was soon resolved by our discussion and the trouble you took . The resulting book has been much admired . The presentation of it is superb . It will be good to have some memories and details for the family . I would not hesitate to recommend you to others seeking a similar record"
"Buying the gift voucher for my mother and father in law was an inspired Christmas present. Thanks Rachel for your help and support- I know they are so chuffed with it! The process/ journey you have given them itself has been amazing and the product will be the icing on the cake!"

Feedback from Learning Disability and Dementia Support Workshop (Sage House)...
"The session gave me lots of ideas and food for thought, and definite inspiration to really get going!"
"Really helpful, I am aware of the concept of life story work, and so was attending more in the capacity of supporting my team to carry this out"
"All keyworkers will be offering this to people to see if and how they would like to collate and present information about their lives"
