“I couldn’t recommend it highly enough; every company should provide something like this for their employees. The workshop facilitator was extremely knowledgeable and engaging and despite it being done over teams, he built a real rapport with everyone on the call through his compassionate and empathetic communication. The course content was well laid out and easy to follow, it was also excellently supplemented with useful information related to mental health support options. Aquarius were a pleasure to deal with from the initial phone call all the way through to receiving a (great value) invoice.”
“We were looking to break the stigma of addiction and open up to talk about such an incredibly common issue instead of letting people dealing it suffer in silence and shame.
We had great feedback from range of colleagues across the bank who were so glad we were discussing what is still a taboo subject. Even if they were not affected themselves, giving them the tools to spot signs, start the conversation etc was a really valuable takeaway for them in supporting their staff/colleagues.
I fully recommend these workshops to all businesses. Aquarius not only made the training engaging, accessible and interactive but also provided excellent recommendations in follow up support and we very much look forward to working with them again in the future. What really shines through with Aquarius also is their passion for what they do and the staff really reflect that with the sensitivity and authentic nature they deliver the training in.”
