The ShinyMind programme was the most surreal experience, my emotions did a full circle with laughter and tears. Bex and Dani are the most amazing, positive, inspirational and motivating people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I am extremely grateful to have been a part of this residential opportunity and I got to work with some incredible nurses and aspiring nurses which I have made some friends for life. The programme looks at your inner self and how that is portrayed into presenting. We all gained so much confidence and self-esteem from it and I’m sure I let out a year’s worth of emotions haha. Should any opportunity like this arise again I would be first in line or highly recommending it. Sitting with Karen Storey seeing her passion and her thoughts can really help us promote the right things going forward working as a team and getting primary care out there.
