Mental Wellbeing

Building on our 26 January session on resilience, Terry Streather from Oakwood Training will be leading us in our exploration of how the  brain deals with stress and how we can help manage it. We will explore

  • how a learners state of mind can influence the learning process
  • how stress can affect the learning process for people with mental health conditions
  • the power of the fight flight response (the chimp vs human thought processes) and how as trainers we need to be aware of it to maximise learning
  • the difference between performance and learning


Terry has been a qualified trainer for the past 15 years. He is Mental Health First Aid Instructor and accredited Brain Friendly trainer. He has extensive experience as both a frontline practitioner and trainer.

Since founding Oakwood Training in 2012 he has helped large organisations across all sectors look after the mental wellbeing and personal safety of their staff. Terry understands that our health and the way we feel has a huge impact on the way we behave, the decisions we make and our productivity.

Regular attenders  will be looking forward to the next opportunity to explore and share best practice . It’s an exciting, exhilarating and rewarding time, spent with like minded  fellow training professionals. A group who are continually pushing the boundaries to explore how to tap into brain function to ensure that individuals get the very best from their learning experiences.
