Client Testimonials

‘Well pitched drugs awareness session and I am really pleased we got to talk about vaping too as its such an issue for young people currently! Will be buying a pack of your drug cards later!‘

Youth worker, Lux Youth Project, Bath

‘As a volunteer in the community, we meet people first hand with all sorts of worries and issues and I would say the cost of living is the main one. So many people struggling and this session was helpful for us personally but also ideas on how to hep people that attend the centre.‘

‘Stacey provided clear, interesting and enjoyable training. The variation in presentation styles helped maintain focus and energy.‘

Youth mentor, Innovate Dorset

‘Before the training, I felt like I was winging it when using it, never understood it fully as not had much examples given to understand. During the session, it started to make sense, can start to see the logic behind it. I am now more confident to use it with yp’s, need to practice using the helpful sheets you have provided. ‘

Lots of contacts made for PSHE events at school. Knowledge building for me in my PSHE role. I’m so glad I made it! This has been the most informative day!

PSHE lead, The Hamble School, Hampshire

Lots to take back and share with the wider team. Love the resources and will be great to use with young people! really useful, great speakers. Great to have young people there too! They were amazing. You dealt with one of your speakers not showing up so well!

Great mindset session our students who I am sure will help them thrive and raise their aspirations. Thanks to Stacey for facilitating and Dorset Careers Hub for organising.

Teacher, Avonbourne Academy, Bournemouth

I thought having training on mindfulness would make me fall asleep but as I learned today, it’s a bit more than relaxing! Great tips to help our children too so thanks.

Residential Care Manager, Calcot Services for Children, Reading

I was so nervous about going out of school for the day but it ended up being really exciting, with a cool teacher, lots of ideas for me to deal with my negativity and free pizza!

Year 10 student, Avonbourne Academy, Bournemouth

I am a member of the mind body soul group at Wildern school and our job is to think of ideas to help the wellbeing of other students in the school. We are really excited to work with stacey on 2 conferences where we will help with organising them and also presenting.

Year 9 student, Wildern School, Hampshire

I have attended drugs and alcohol training before but this was high end. Up to date, fascinating and a lot of fun so the time flew by!

I love the title sprinkle of happiness for a Facebook live which I know definitely sprinkled some magic to all us ambassadors for Tropic!

Tropic Ambassador, Edinburgh

The best 3 hours of training I have had a in long time!

Residential Care Manager, Calcot Services for Children, Reading

I learnt so much today. Interactive and I love all the resources such as the postcards, their design and info. ‘

Residential Care Manager, Calcot Services for Children, Reading

Really liked all the activities today especially Stacey’s stall playing the dice game and winning loads of prizes. She was also easy to chat too about stuff that’s stressing me out.

Young person aged 14, Gosport Passport event

Fab mindset Facebook live tonight! I can’t believe how much our thoughts are connected to everything. Our body, what we do etc! Definitely going to be more mindful.

Tropic Ambassador, London

Decent night tonight. I knew about the drugs but learnt a lot about vaping and how to cut down.

Young person, aged 15, ASBOC, Hampshire

I’m not into all the skating and stuff but my mates are and that’s why I came down. I like the stalls on hair braiding and getting tips on my anxiety and sleep.

Young person, aged 13, ParkSport Eastleigh event

Awesome lesson on drugs! Didn’t realise vaping was a drug.

Year 9 student, Admiral Lord Nelson School, Portsmouth

Great lesson on addiction today about gambling, drugs and even mobiles and I am defo addicted to my tik tok!

Year 8 student, John Hanson School, Andover, Hampshire

Thanks for your delivery to our students in Switzerland! I absolutely love CBT and the way you teach it user friendly for young people and you did all of this online with a few tech hitches our side! More bookings to come soon I am sure!‘

Wellbeing manager, Obersee Bilingual School, Zurich

Mental health is very important but maybe I had forgotten bout taking care of mine. During the training, I remembered all the things I have been emotionally avoiding but in a good way. After it, left me many things to think and reflect about and just try and put everything learnt to day to the test.‘

Youth worker, SOCO Music project, Southampton

Great informative and really interesting parents’ session on drugs tonight. I feel so more equipped to talk to my children and not panic if anything ever happens. Would really like more of this evenings and stacey to talk again maybe on mental health topics.‘

Parent, Mountbatten School, Romsey

I knew a bit about mental health not specifically through training, however I always felt it was important and I had seen some posts about anxiety and panic attacks. During the course, I felt like I knew some stuff but not in details as well as realising and learning some new factors that help mental health. Now I feel more encouraged to work on some stuff with myself but also a little more confident to relay info to the young people.‘

Youth worker, SOCO Music project, Southampton

Thank you so much for delivering the course today – you made it so interesting. I especially enjoyed the interactive questions at the start which really bought home how normal it is to suffer with negative thoughts patterns which I know will be very helpful for my patients to see. Thanks again for the course and all the worksheets!

Wellbeing Practitioner, Andover Mind

Many thanks for giving me a space on the course – it was really informative, and enjoyable and that’s not an easy thing to accomplish online!! Before I was interested in finding out about CBT – think I did an awareness session with you many, many years ago? Good interactive activities bits and none of them were scary or put participants on the spot (previous life experience of that one !!) so I should probably rephrase that as participants encouraged but not forced to join in with chat exercises? Great examples of negative thoughts and their influence, with specific reference to some for young people. The course was thought provoking. I learned a lot about what and how I can change things – will be sharing with family and colleagues.

Local Childrens Partnership Chair, Eastleigh, Hampshire

Thank you so much for the very inspirational talk for us Tropic Ambassadors tonight. It is so very appreciated. You’re so very easy to listen to, I’m absolutely buzzing now!!

Tropic Ambassador, London

Nice to have a wellbeing hour for just teachers. Its not just unemployed people struggling with the cost of living crisis and it made a refreshing change looking at how to help ourselves.

Teacher, Ormiston Rivers Academy, Essex

The best lesson I’ve had, really funny and so interesting, think I might look into jobs working in prisons or rehabs. Thanks for visiting us.

Year 9 student, Mountbatten School, Romsey, Hampshire

Love the laminating drugs game as I hate sitting around on training and you definitely got us moving and time went so quick! Good resources to take back to work with our kids too.

Residential Care Manager, Calcot Services for Children, Reading

A star act. Stacey is very professional and connects with young people very well. I strongly recommend her to come and deliver sessions in your school. Out students gave amazing feedback and we are having her back again next year! Her resources are very useful as a conversation starter or a follow up exercise in PSHE.’

Wellbeing, Obersee Bi-lingual School, Zurich

Stacey was very friendly and it was super cool to have her visit all the way from England and give us her time and expertise. Now that we have met her in person, I am confident that the school will invite her to teach us more but maybe online so easier to facilitate.’

Year 12 student, Obersee Bi-lingual School, Zurich

I’ve found this workshop to be very helpful for myself. It’s good to connect with others to not just help myself but for myself to help others hopefully. This has felt like a bit of a chance to reset my mental health. I’ve enjoyed doing this workshop and I look forward to doing some more in the future. My action I will do is to put myself first more often.’

Housing tenant, South Coast Training event, Southampton

I enjoyed all of it. I will take away more gratitude and be kinder to myself. It always helps when the person presenting anything like this, to have personal experience of what they are teaching or training.’

Housing tenant, South Coast Training event, Southampton

I really liked your energy, enthusiasm and how you put the course together and presented it. I liked the 5 ways to wellbeing the best and I will pay it forward more. Many, many thanks for your experience, time and effort.’

Housing tenant, South Coast Training event, Southampton

Thank you for your workshop today. Its always good to see you and listen to you. It made getting dressed easier and looking forward. I really like it because I met with you again, always a pleasure and of course, the workshops was more enjoyable for already knowing you.’

Housing tenant, South Coast Training event, Southampton

Stacey was really knowledgeable and her energy was great considering it was over zoom. The resources were amazing and I know will be so useful for myself and the young people I support. Stacey made me feel comfortable to share and was open with the group. Thank you, Stacey!’

Youth worker, Motiv8, Gosport

Thank you, Stacey. I enjoyed the training – love the resources and the way the course was structured and interactive (without having to introduce ourselves or do embarrassing ice-breakers!)’

Social prescriber, Eastleigh PCT, Hampshire

Great training Delivery Stacey, so nice to have someone animated when they are talking, not just reading off slides!’

Pastoral support worker, Ringwood School, Hampshire

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for Friday and the workshop you delivered. All of the resources you put together were fantastic and it was great that so many stayed and seemed to enjoy and benefit from the session. A hard ask, on a Friday afternoon! Well done and thanks again.’

Head of Learning Services, Community First, Hampshire

I’ll admit I wasn’t sure about attending a financial wellbeing webinar at work. Does it mean I am struggling? Anyway, no judgement there and in fact most of the team attended. Really needed this boost to feeling more resilient during the financial crisis. Stacey was an exceptional host.’

Project manager, Glenigan, Bournemouth

This was by far the best lesson I’ve had today. I liked the way Stacey was so honest telling us stories but not trying to scare us all the time because at the end of the day, most people smoke weed.’

Year 9 student, John Hansen School, Hampshire

Before this webinar I was feeling really flat and hopeless about the cost of living crisis and now I feel more hopeful and realistic that bad times do pass.’

Retail assistant, Eastleigh

Pause button idea is good and very thought provoking. Great help for my negativity.’

Resident, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

I couldn’t think of a better workshop to attend right now than money and mental health! Glad my manager told me about it. Great awareness and tips.’

A raw talk about someone’s experiences of drug taking delivered in an honest but light hearted manner.’

Student, Bournemouth Collegiate School

Talking about financial resilience is so important right now and I can recommend your workshops enough to professionals and residents we work with.’

Resident, New Forest, Hampshire

I often listen and talk to young people but I did not know how to respond on some occasions. I really like learning about affirmations and anxiety. I feel more empowered to be able to help especially with depression.’

PC, Hampshire Constabulary

I feel like our school has missed on so much lessons like this. Bullying, mental health and friendships is huge in school so I think this lesson was good today.’

Year 9 student, Hamble Community College, Hampshire

I wasn’t quite sure how to help young people or where to signpost them when its not my field of expertise. I loved everything! Loved the gratitude and positive thinking topics, really helpful to take forward. I am much more confident about what resources to tap into. I am also more confident about being able to listen and support young people at school and at home.’

Teacher, Lymington Junior School, Hampshire

Great ideas to make me happy. I never realised that so many things could make you down but so many things can make you feel great! Me and my friends have already said we are going to try arts and crafts stuff this weekend to see if we like it.’

Year 7 student, John Hansen Community School, Hampshire


I was aware that mental health was a huge factor with children these days. However this training has really opened my eyes up to the seriousness in depth. The flash cards and worksheets are a great tool to take away. I have learnt a lot of useful tools to use with the children I work with as well as my own children.’

PC, Hampshire Constabulary


I knew some things about youth mental health and some techniques to help but I felt that I needed a refresher and learn some more techniques and advice for supporting young people with their mental health. Love the postcards and the ideas for activities to explore mental health with young people. useful local links and contacts to support our young people. I felt more knowledgeable and keen to share the activities and advice. Empowered/enabled to be able to help young people in my setting and my own children.’

Teacher, Lymington Junior School, Hampshire

Thank you for such a positive and interactive training session, really enjoyed it.. and loved your positivity and enthusiasm! Thank you so much for forwarding your presentation.. and for the training cert. Have a great week, and keep in touch re further training you are doing.. loved it!’

Health and wellbeing coach, Help & Care, Dorset

‘’This has been an amazing event and has made me feel welcome to be open about my thoughts. The organisers made it fun and cooperative for us.’’

Year 9 student, Wildern School, Hampshire

Just wanted to say thank you again for coming into Hope&Glory on Tuesday and sharing your stories and tips. I came into you and chatted about my IBS and you worked out I whizz through life at 1000mph (guilty!) So I’ve enquired about some CBT to challenge my way of thinking and I’m trying really hard to PAUSE a few times a day. Will let you know how I get on. Hopefully see you soon as H&G soon!’

Public relations officer, Hope & Glory PR, London

Hi! Thank you so much for such a wonderful session today. I found it very enjoyable and informative!! Thank you so much for organising it!’

Year 11 student, Participation People, London

Very interesting and informative training session. Made me understand better how debt and mental health are connected, what some of our tenants may be going through and how unsettling and isolating they must feel. The training gave me some practical tips on how to talk with compassion with the tenants, hot to identify the signs that someone is struggling. I do not think I realised before how connected and serious the issues of debt and mental health are, and the potentially how serious the consequences can be….! The training was delivered in a very friendly way and managed to deliver a positive message with such a serious issues. Strongly recommend! Thank you Stacey!’

Tenant Engagement Officer, Southampton City Council

Stacey joined us for Park Sport 2022 by coming along and setting up a stall at one of our annual Skate Jam events. Stacey brought lots of freebies and resources for the young people and families that attended the event.

Thank you for your honest, authentic approach backed up with science. I am taking away causation and correlation in terms of drug use. I see how it links to other behaviours, seeing it as a wider context of interrelated issues. Really thought provoking, thank you.’

Mentor, Innovate Dorset

It was a very informative and easy approached session, making it accessible in a friendly way. Very useful indeed.’

Mentor, Innovate Dorset

I found the session informative with actionable take aways. Procrastination is something I’ve struggled with so I am going to use some of the techniques I’ve learnt today.’

Operations manager, Tesla Europe, London

I enjoyed this team away day so much! The wellness, VR games and bird handling were a great mix. I am going to do acts of kindness and ask more open questions on wellbeing about the other person. I loved Stacey’s approach and I would like to see her more often in our office and apply all the ideas in practice.’

Office manager, Dia-Stron Ltd, Hampshire

I liked the idea of challenging my negative thoughts and need to do this more. The ideas behind why we procrastinate are useful and some good tips there. I am going to check out the recommended podcasts and challenge my thoughts more often.’

I found the session highly motivational. It made me excited to think I can use CBT to help me achieve my goals.’

Virtual diagnostic specialist, Tesla Europe, London

Whether it’s mental health, drugs, motivational interviewing or boundaries training, she delivers content in a clear and engaging way, and you’ll always find yourself going home with additional resources to use in your setting.

Her Happy Kits have been particularly well received by our families and the young people we support. You will not find a more prepared, flexible and knowledgeable trainer in her field.’

‘Wow … what a fantastic experience. I joined a Wellbeing Retreat at Sculpture by the Lakes in Dorchester. Firstly what an amazing setting, very fitting. There were a series of workshops as well as the opportunity to practice Yoga. Stacey Miller’s workshop on ‘The Power of our Thoughts’ really struck a cord with me. What an amazing reminder of how our thoughts have a direct impact on our lives and an excellent reminder that, if we want it, we really can have much more in control of our own lives than we might think! Loved it, a great day, thank you!’

She really engaged everyone in some powerful, thought-provoking discussions and created an environment that encouraged an open and honest approach where young people felt comfortable sharing their own experiences if they wanted to- especially important to our group of 12 young men. They, and the staff, came away with some great ideas on how to improve their wellbeing and create healthy self care habits that could be easily incorporated into a busy day. I cannot recommend Stacey Miller Consultancy highly enough. It has a lasting impact and normalises the need to talk about mental health. Thank you Stacey!’

Resident, Bournemouth

‘Stacey came and delivered a wellbeing session for our staff in the Students’ Union at Bournemouth University, we haven’t been able to run any face to face training for a long time and with the education sector coming up against so many challenges during the pandemic we also haven’t had the chance to ensure we are looking after ourselves. This training came at such a vital point for us, allowing staff to take a step back and reassess their needs and limits. The tools Stacey talked about were so relevant, appropriate to all of us and very useful for everyday life. It made us more considerate of our mental health and capacity and gave us strategies to cope now and in the future. The R3 Welfare project tackling mental health in the workplace is such a fantastic initiative and so important in todays world. We are excited to promote the BCP Together App as we believe it will be incredibly useful for our staff and students. Thank you so much for coming to our workplace, lifting our spirits and showing us that we can do this but sometimes we need a nudge in the right direction, which is exactly what Stacey and her wealth of knowledge and infectious personality does!‘

Community Safety Manager, New Forest District Council

‘Despite the uncertain times we find ourselves in, the Eastleigh Youth Conference gave students across Eastleigh the chance to get together virtually and engage with some key charities and organisations from across the local area. Stacey Miller, the organiser and host, had an infectious energy that she passed to all of the students – it was so heart-warming to see them all dancing and laughing, and engaging with students from different schools and campuses. The energy really was contagious! The range of workshops really complimented the ‘Keep Safe’ theme, and the interactivity of the workshops was excellent – using playdough was a hit! All of the information given was relevant and age specific, and I even learnt a few things myself. After the success of this virtual conference, I would love to attend a face to face conference when Covid allows it – it would be fabulous to see Stacey in action in person. Well done Stacey for all of your hard work, and thank you for bringing all of our students together for such a fun, yet informative day.’

Learning Centre Manager & Learner Voice Coordinator, Eastleigh College

‘Stacey is very experienced in matters of drug & alcohol abuse and mental health. Stacey is very comfortable in any environment, ranging from 1:1 coaching sessions to large audiences of every age.

‘As part of Mental Health Awareness Month and activities to focus on our people and teams during the pandemic, we invited Stacey to present, raise awareness and field questions around mental health, self care and how to help cope with the global pandemic. Taking the time to understand the target audience and areas of interest based on regions and cultures, Stacey adapted her styles and sessions to suit the audiences. Stacey’s experience, professionalism and energy shone throughout with an ability to relate content to personal experiences to make it real and plenty of interaction to engage the audience. We received nothing but positive feedback from attendees of all sessions and I wouldn’t hesitate to invite recommend her to others.’

Business Program Manager – People & Culture (MLGCS), Microsoft

‘I worked with Stacey when she approached me to be a speaker at the New Forest Conference, I was asked to speak about my story of living with an alcoholic parent. Stacey was very professional and since that event we’ve kept in touch, she is extremely knowledgeable in the world of drugs and alcohol and working with youths and young people. I highly recommend Stacey for training and speaking because she just knows what she’s talking about, and super cool with it as well!’

Year 8 pupil, St Neots prep school, Hampshire


‘When Covid 19 hit the nation and lockdown began, our greatest concern was the well-being of the young people we work with and their families. The pandemic itself was causing young people and their parents to feel overwhelmed, and it was important to enable those households to talk about their emotions so they could better understand them and manage them during this particularly challenging time. The Happy Kit enabled us to support families when we were forced to pause our services, extending an olive branch of support to vulnerable household and providing a tool that would help the young people feel more in control of how they were feeling. It is an excellent resource, and one that we continue to refer to when supporting our young people and families virtually.’

Chief executive officer, Solent Youth Action, Eastleigh, Hampshire

During the COVD-19 Pandemic, I took the bold step of taking my workshops online. This has enabled me to reach a wider audience.

In May 2020 Microsoft commissioned me to hold mental wellbeing webinars for the employees working from home in Asia, the Americas and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).  I received some amazing feedback which you can see at the link below.

I wish I had better constructive feedback but it was a great way to start my morning. Her voice is really calming and I needed to hear those things – good timing and good delivery

She is very open and approachable and I like that she shared her personal experience too. Great tips which can easily be implemented as well

Good choice of presenter for this audience and she mentioned some really useful resources too! Perhaps a great follow up would be a list of those resources, so that the attendees for this session and the upcoming ones have a useful checklist of options they can explore

Nothing I didn’t like … but I have some great content on handling stress and building resilience which I think would also futureproof the team from mental health challenges 🙂

‘Really good introduction to CBT, gives you the basic knowledge to start to make changes at home or in your setting, good balance of interactive learning and listening.’

‘My name is Dave Penfold, I work at Bay House School in Gosport as the Citizenship / PSHRE Coordinator. We have recently purchased a wide variety of the education postcards from Stacey Miller Consultancy. We plan to use them both in our Emotional Support one to one sessions and also in our upcoming Mental Health Day for our Year 8 pupils. The postcards are great; they are bright, colourful, informative and something that we really feel that our pupils will keep hold of for future reference. I would definitely recommend that other schools and agencies working with young people should have a look at Stacey’s website as there is a huge array of useful resources at affordable prices.’

I hope the school will make more use of you and your training.  I particularly liked the ‘gratitude’ session, and have been practising as you suggested. It is surprisingly effective.  Interestingly, I am just back from the school’s start of year service in the cathedral at which our wonderful chaplain Justin White gave an address in which he talked about the transformative power of gratitude.
