YOUR CHANCE TO REHEARSE LIFE!!
Whilst a large part of our team is made up of performing artists, we also have a full faculty of expertise to call upon. We work with members of all the Emergency Services (Police and police specialists, Ambulance Service including HART Teams, Fire & Rescue Service and Mountain and Lowland Rescue organisations), HM Forces personnel including specialists who have served with UK Special Forces. Our network reaches into government agencies including the Home Office for planning purposes and inter-agency liaison.
We educate through the medium of creating experiences that are often used in education, are highly immersive, realistic and cross the educational domains.
Our services are used to evaluate and test emergency plans for events ranging from breaking bad news, customer services to major incidents and active terrorist response.
From the simplest of incidents in the workplace, through to complex, multi-disciplinary and inter-agency events that have an impact on a national scale we work with our clients to achieve workable planning solutions based on lessons-learned through our range of scenarios.
Sometimes it’s not good enough to think you your planning is effective, sometimes you just have to prove it. This is where For Real Training can have the biggest impact on your corporate resilience and emergency planning. Having the confidence that your plans have been formulated and tested and where necessary adjusted, so that your business is better able to face any incident crisis with confidence.

ARB Consultancy and
Mental Health First Aid
As a police officer for 30 years I was ideally placed to witness first hand the effects of stress and trauma on colleagues in a dynamic and fast moving environment. As head of the representative body for police officers I became passionate about providing help and support for their mental health and wellbeing. In order to provide the right assistance and support in the vital area of mental health I qualified as an instructor with MHFA England. This was the most practical and meaningful course that gave the right skills and tools to meet the needs expected when providing mental health support without having to become a psychotherapist or counsellor.
Being in a role with responsibility for the health and welfare of colleagues I have extensive experience in supporting numerous colleagues through their mental health journey. I have supported numerous colleagues suffering with conditions from Anxiety and Depression through to mental health crisis and suicide providing one to one assistance and signposting to the appropriate treatments and support. This has assisted them to access the necessary support and either staying in work while receiving treatment or returning to work sooner following effective treatments. Where appropriate I have also assisted colleagues to leave the organisation with dignity and integrity when recovery has not been possible.
Since my retirement from the police service I continue to deliver this training to the police service along with other sectors. We provide MHFA training to staff and line managers in many other organisations from both private and public sector industries. My trainers are selected for their knowledge and experience in a range of sectors including Higher Education, Social Care, Logistics, Event Planning, Criminal Justice system, Safeguarding, Construction and Utilities.
This has given these organisations the skills and confidence to assist their colleagues and employees when showing the signs and symptoms of mental distress thus creating a safe and supportive working environment.
