"PJ has an outstanding ability to create rapport with pupils whether it's in a small group setting or when she's speaking to a large group. PJ delivered wonderful small group workshops on body image and self-esteem with our Year 9 girls which were highly impactful in helping the girls reflect on what is influencing their sense of self and how they perceive themselves. It was a highly positive session with wonderful feedback from the pupils. She also ran large group talks to our Year 10 and 11 pupils on relationship 'red flags'. It was wonderful to see how impactful her work was and see pupils learning the language they need to identify and call out negative and abusive behaviours. Fantastic!!"

"Such great training!!! The trainer PJ is an absolute legend and really helped train and improve how we deliver support and guidance to the young people we work with at YMCA Exeter. Phenomenal work couldn't recommend it highly enough to other providers. It can be such a sensitive topic, was handled really well and as the point of rePHRASE... it was without the awkwardness".
(CS - Project Coordinator, YMCA Exeter)

“Our sex & relationships sessions were requested by the parents of our youth group and rePHRASE® came highly recommended to us. We weren't disappointed, PJ was brilliant, and our youth loved her friendly and interactive style. The sessions were well constructed and had a good flow to them. The content was thought-provoking and well researched. Our Youth Group loved the sessions and were very fond of PJ”.

“PJ has a strong passion and enthusiasm when it comes to relationships and sexual education. When attending her sessions, I felt as though no topic was off limits and that there was no such thing as a silly question. PJ is very approachable and professional. She makes easy work of breaking through barriers, cutting ties with shame and making the difficult conversations in life more comfortable. I could talk to her about anything with complete confidence and trust and without any fear of embarrassment, judgement or ridicule. I feel confident in saying that PJ is highly capable of handling any situation with thoughtfulness, dignity and respect”.

Bespoke parent-packs designed to support parents with the knowledge and communication skills they need to talk to their child(ren) about relationships and sexual health. Each pack contains specific topics chosen by the parent with associated activities (where applicable). This tool provides opportunities to help parents be effective RSE educators in their own home.
"Hi PJ, my kids love us reading through the pack together! (****) particularly enjoys the read … No embarrassment just giggles and excitement about puberty! Great time to start the conversation with him … this pack is super timely... I love that the pack covers things we haven’t spoken about yet (coz of not feeling very adequate) and the book has been that needed icebreaker to help us get it going. So so helpful!"
(LD - Parent, Exeter)
"I can't thank you enough for today, it has helped me so much and I feel much stronger and better equipped to help and understand what (****) might be going through in terms of puberty etc. I’m just so grateful to you because I truly believe I will now be able to move further forward with (****) because I feel much stronger and much more aware and enlightened.
Knowledge & education is key".
