sally-ann-hart Welcome to my site, I hope you like it! It is intended to be a resource for those who have received training from me as well as somewhere for people to find information about the types of training I am able to offer. I will also be occasionally posting general stuff about what I'm involved with at the moment. quotation_marks_close

Brexit Blues

Not quite sure how I will get through tomorrow as I still can’t quite understand how leaving the EU became a reality. One thing is for sure, tomorrow I will be employing all my knowledge of the Protective Behaviours process to keep me feeling as safe as possible as the day progresses. I will be employing the PB strategy of ‘protective interruption’ by not listening to or watching any news coverage – this may well mean turning the radio down on the hour and averting my eyes from any screens if I choose to go the gym. I will instead celebrate all things European with as many like-minded people as possible – thinking of holding an EU evening of food & drink and decorating the house with my various EU flags and bunting….

Slightly earlier today I realised that I’ve been able to get through 2020 so far because training Protective Behaviours gives me hope for the future. I then started to collate some of the feedback from January’s courses so I have something concrete to share with people that illustrates how empowering PBs is and how it changes the way people feel, think and behave. So, moving forward I will continue to persist, which is another one of the seven PB strategies, and elegantly challenge, using the PB language of safety model, anyone who tries to tell me to just get over Brexit and make the most of it. (PBs is definitely not about ‘put up and shut up).

If you’d like to read some of the feedback from people who attended training in January 2020, please see document PBTP Training Feedback Jan20 x2.


Not that Sally Ann Hart!

I’ve decided to write a new blog, despite these days preferring to use Twitter to connect, share ideas and learn from others, because I’ve just discovered that there’s another Sally Ann Hart who seems to be attracting rather a lot of


Where did that one go?

Oh my word, just realised the last time I sat down and updated my blog was way back in July and now it’s only one more sleep ’til Christmas! I don’t know where this year has gone although I am well aware of what a


The Greatest Love of All?

I have a passion for the dulcet tones of George Benson – this began during my teenage years and continues to date. His version of The Greatest Love of All, (Michael Masser music and Linda Creed lyrics) is a song I play during


Easter Already

Protective Behaviours Training Partenrship

Wow, here we are at Easter already, clocks have ‘gone forward’ and daylight hours stretch into early evening – how time flies when having fun. Lots of opportunities have appeared already this year to ‘risk on purpose’ and persist to get Protective Behaviours on the


Busy, Busy, Busy!

Oh my – what a busy start to 2016 and apologies for not finding the time to even wish A Happy New Year!

All good in my world which feels like it has become PB-land with so much training, practice and network development going on.


Update from Edinburgh

MAF Conference 2015

As mentioned in a previous post, I was invited to speak at the Moira Anderson Foundation ‘Not On Our Watch’ Conference. This took place in Edinburgh last week and I feel so chufffed to have been there, not only to talk, but also to
