What people say about PFG

“Hi Glyn, Thanks for sending through these pictures. I agree with you, it was such as great day! I just wanted to take the opportunity again to say a massive thank you to you Glyn. Our workshop has been the talk of social care today!! I’ve had some really amazing feedback. You spoke from the heart yesterday Glyn and your words were very powerful in supporting staff to understand motivational interviewing. You should feel really proud. I personally am so proud of what we did yesterday. I’m really excited to build on this! As discussed I will arrange to come to the wellness centre in a couple of weeks time so we can have get together to reflect and discuss next steps.”
