"Presenting yourself with confidence meeting at Guernsey House"

About: Guernsey House

(as the patient),

Today I attended a presenting yourself with confidence meeting at Guernsey House and meeting up with people from Northern College which will then continue at Northern College for the next 3 weeks.

I also met a lovely group of people who attend Guernsey House, like myself who are also taking the course.

I was really nervous to begin with then further in to the meeting started to feel okay. The Guernsey House staff were absolutely fantastic. Very welcoming, nice to talk to and cared for all of us. They were so easy to get on with and talk to, we also had a laugh, had drinks made for us and beautiful spread on for dinner.

This is a fantastic idea of theirs to carry out and hopefully carry on having for other users who have confidence issues just like our group, they can also use our group and all the information they achieve to present to their following groups.

I am so glad I have attended. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done and I would go again so thank you to all your beautiful staff at Guernsey House and also Northern College.

I appreciate all you have done.
