Rae Adams, TVBC Play Development Office


Dear Mr Bonthuys,

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for the training that you gave myself and the youth facility team at the Andover Depot yesterday. As a play development officer, I often find that I am out on site alone and often in very remote places. The work that we covered during the day was a real eye opener. I can’t say that I enjoyed the feeling of panic which came over me at times but I think that it was something that I had to face.

As a result, I feel that I will be in a much better position to deal with a nasty situation should one arise ( And please god, I hope it won’t ), and I also feel that it has highlighted a personal flaw which I need to work quite hard to overcome if I am to make a difference to my inter personal skills. Having the natural urge for flight means that I do not deal with confrontational situations very well and have a tendency to go from a very naive straight straight into panic when faced with any sort of challenging behaviour. This can result in flustered defensive behaviour even in the most controlled environments, such as a business meeting. It is now clear that by staying alert and aware of my environment, I could control this flight impulse and moderate my state of mind from panic to Action.

I would recommend this course not only to lone workers but also any person who has to commute alone or is an active independent person.

I thank you again.

Rae Adams,
