Hear from our DESTY Mentors

We are thrilled with the feedback and testimonials that we received from the parents, educators and carers who have become Certified DESTY Mentors. Why not read what they have to say?


"Firstly, I would like to thank you all for this course. I love how it focuses on how my child feels and gives me a platform to explore this in a nurturing, safe and caring environment. It gives my child a voice and it gives us the chance to explore with DESTY while spending time together. I know I will always be able to refer back to DESTY to help us to all move forward."

CLARE - Parent, Ireland


"I think this programme could benefit all children to understand their emotions and feelings but as a foster carer working with children who have suffered emotional trauma, I think it will be invaluable in helping my foster children to understand their emotions better and to help them become more resilient."

JULIE - Foster Carer, UK


"This course was informative and transformative. The support was fantastic and I am already reaping the benefits with the young people I work with. The content was very relevant to my role in school, supporting some extremely challenging students. I would recommend DESTY to anyone working with children with social and emotional needs."

GILLIAN - Educator, Ireland
