Thank you for creating these invaluable opportunities for us to grow and develop further. I LOVE and believe in what Vocal Health Education stands for, its authenticity and person centred approach.

Thank YOU for continually creating a safe platform for open discussion, debate and honesty. Your honesty and curiosity is a rarity in our field of work.
What was really clever was the way all the sessions were client-led and the contracting was so helpful. I think I mentioned how refreshing it was not to have made copious amounts of notes over the weekend. It was, as you advertised, experiential - and what a good way to learn!

It was heartening to be amongst such knowledgeable, caring professionals and I am proud to be a member of VHE. I feel that Stephen and yourself should be extremely proud of the work that you are doing.
I enjoyed the three days. I really appreciate your willingness to bring your experiences and where you currently were into the space.
