Personal Details

I am professional and benevolent. With infectious enthusiasm I create a safe inclusive classroom space for an enjoyable and memorable learning experience, whichever course you attend.

Just come with and open mind, burning questions and a sense of humour.

Self confessed science and data geek. I have always had a deep interest around the integrated relationships between psychology, biology, and neuroscience, and how our belief system directly impacts our physiology and conscious experience of the world.

I am currently studying Hypnosis and working through my Hypnotherapy Training with the aim of joining the accredited register of therapists next year. (Did you know hypnotherapists are not regulated by law in the UK, always do your due diligence.)

I feel genuinely privileged to facilitate MHFAider® training and gain so much gratification from imparting the knowledge and skills these courses deliver.
I facilitate regular open face to face training in and around Cambridgeshire, Essex Suffolk and Bedfordshire, and offer a hybrid facility for in-house clients if required.

The Journey so far

After 12 years working in HR and training, I left the corporate world and a change in career led me into a hands-on role within the NHS both on the wards and in clinic at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.
It became increasingly evident to me how physical and psychological health are intrinsically linked although often overlooked, and one simply cannot be addressed without the other.

An experienced trainer in both the corporate world and the NHS, led me to set up my own training company The Bridge First Aid in 2011. With the goal of providing local accessible and credible resources for all demographics to practice and learn simple life saving skills.

The business has since grown and continues to evolve. We have been offering Mental Health First Aid England courses since 2017 and continue to offer the full MHFA England catalogue as well as bespoke tailor-made programmes for you.

Stigma, cultural influences, and lack of education surrounding mental health is a huge barrier to accessing help and embarking on a recovery journey, and I am passionate about helping to change the status quo.

“Jenny has always displayed joy, enthusiasm, and a natural gift for teaching. Jenny has a real skill in translating and delivering complex ideas into laymen’s terms. She is personable and tenacious.”

I am a lover of horses and the presence that being around horses brings.
I attribute dog ownership to managing a fulfilling and active lifestyle and balanced mind-set. It’s all about lux. Lux is the new fit. The sky is the new gym.
The time spent outside with my dog is invaluable. Animals do not have the added stigma that modern society creates and observing behaviour without these barriers is fascinating
Epigenetics implies we can change biology but without changing society is this a lost cause?
MHFA is huge and accessible catalyst for this movement. To create a more inclusive society.

People that know me would describe me as Alice in Wonderland, a curious disposition with a propensity to go down rabbit holes and onto new and exciting adventures of discovery.
