Meet the Team
We are resilience nerds with sharp minds and ninja facilitation skills.
Tough Cookie’s founder and lead facilitator, Michael developed his idea’s through his career as a resilience specialist with the national mental health charity Mind. He co-created the ‘Mindkit’ resilience programme which provided resilience training to 18,200 students and teachers in London, launched the ‘Employee Champions’ Professional Network for the ‘Time to Change’ national mental health campaign and was a co-designer of the ‘Whole School Approach’ to Mental Health National Strategy for England & Wales.
“His personal stories bring a reality check to the world, and his ability to normalise and help us all understand more about this specialist field is why we will continue to work with Michael in the future. You can’t help but want some of his aura!”
Hand picked by Michael for their unusual backgrounds and novel facilitation styles, our Mixed Mental Arts trainers are trailblazers in personal & group transformation.
