Evidence Based Training program

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an international mental health awareness and skills programme developed in Australia in 2001 and now internationally recognised in 23 countries. Globally, almost two million people have been trained in MHFA skills. MHFA came to England in 2007 and was developed and launched under the Department of Health: National Institute of Mental Health in England (NIMHE) as part of a national approach to improving public mental health.

Repeated evaluations have shown that the skills learnt on MHFA courses:
  • Increase both knowledge and confidence in how to support someone experiencing a mental health issue
  • Improve attitudes towards mental health issues, reducing stigma whilst normalising mental ill health to promote more empathetic approaches
  • Are used by between 68.5% - 88% of Mental Health First Aiders if they encounter someone experiencing mental ill health after attending a course, with many providing support to more than one person
  • Have a direct positive impact on attendees’ own mental health and wellbeing, with many reporting an increased ability to manage their own mental health.

Fessey, V., James, G., Pengelly, T., Mental Health First Aid: equipping the nurses of the future. British Journal of Nursing (August 2016)
The study concluded that the introduction of MHFA training into current nursing curricula is a step towards encouraging nursing students to develop a more person centred approach to care.

Hadlaczky, G., Hokby, S., Mkrtchian, A., Carli, V., Wasserman, D., Mental Health First Aid is an effective public health intervention for improving knowledge, attitudes, and behaviour: a meta-analysis. International Review of Psychiatry (August 2014)
A meta-analysis of international MHFA evaluations conducted in 2014 found that MHFA programmes increase participants’ knowledge regarding mental health, decrease negative attitudes, and increased supportive behaviours towards individuals with mental health issues.
The meta-analysis concluded that MHFA is recommendable as a public health intervention.

Biography

I am a qualified Instructor for Master Ding Academy (MDA) teaching the traditional Yang Style Tai chi and Qigong as past on through the 6th Generation Yang Style Master – Master Ding.

I continually study and train under Master Ding and one of his Senior students Sifu Nick Cheang, as well as creating other training opportunities within the MDA network of Tai Chi Practitioners. I am very dedicated and passionate about receiving and passing on the true transmission of the art as understood by this lineage of Yang style Tai Chi.

As with my Tai chi I take great importance in continually practising and refining my own ability within my therapies that I provide. I study TCM and Tui Na with Maria and Graham Mercati where I further my knowledge and application of the techniques.

These Ancient Arts have been practised and refined for hundreds if not thousands of years and hold great potential for understanding and healing.

I offer treatments and classes applying the principles and practises of these great complimentary Arts. My friendly intuitive treatments will guide the client through a deeper understanding of how to achieve and maintain a higher level of good health.

Mpath life Manual Therapy System promotes the releasing and unblocking of both the physical and energetic pathways, that exist within your body.
