“Steven was a fantastic presenter who obviously knew his materials and audience.”

“I was in the audience at the parents talk recently and felt much more positive about my son’s (10 yo) interest in gaming after hearing you talk in such a balanced way about it. What struck me most was the importance of playing games together, being more positive about his interest and practising going ‘on and off’ to regulate dopamine which I’ve shared with him. So thank you once again. It has relieved quite a bit of worry and stress associated with the topic between us. “

“I just LOVE seeing some of the guys from the previous series of workshops, coming back and catching up on Fridays. Obviously the program really worked.”
