"We invited Rephrase to work with the whole of Year 10 on a carousel basis leading a session on healthy relationships, myths, assumptions and misconceptions about sex and we were not disappointed. The session was engaging and allowed students a safe space to explore issues around sex and relationships.
Student feedback was very positive and it was clear from student voice that the session had a significant impact.
We really appreciate your time, effort and professionalism and would not hesitate to both recommend you highly and to work with you again.
A massive thank you on behalf of Teign".

Do you need support in complying with the National Youth Agency Curriculum (highlighted in NYA Guidelines)? Not sure how to address topics such as Healthy Relationships, Pornography or Sex? rePHRASE® offers a variety of RSE topics for youth groups.
“I will think about my achievements and the things I do well instead of relying on social media ‘likes’ to increase my self-esteem” (participant, age 15)

“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”.

For those who prefer an alternative learning-environment, 1:1 sessions are available providing an opportunity to cover specific RSE-related topics in a relaxed, one-to-one setting, providing the individual with bespoke one-to-one support around their chosen topics and a chance to ask questions without the perceived pressure of being in a group.
“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.
“My 12-year-old son missed his sex education due to being out of school. He’s also not in a mainstream school setting and I was concerned about supporting his understanding of puberty and growing up without the back up of school lessons to chat things through! I talked through my worries with PJ, and she created an amazing, bespoke parent-pack for me to use to support my son. I felt so much more confident having the resources and guidance to work through with him to talk openly and honestly about puberty and sex. I can also continue to use the pack at different stages as he continues to grow and develop. Thank you, PJ, – this is invaluable to us”.
