Hi, I'm Rose, the face behind Start the Conversation. I'm a qualified counsellor, mum of one, keen yogi and singer (amongst other things!) and also a passionate, experienced and international tutor of suicide prevention skills:


I actively promote and deliver suicide prevention skills training within our communities because we are all human beings and because suicide doesn't discriminate. I have trained GPs, teachers, parents, counsellors, students, youth workers, managers, police officers, veterans, firefighters.


I value collaboration  often in partnership or collaborations, I strive to share this education to more people, regardless of their professional background, across the South East and beyond.

I am passionate about empowering people to overcome their fears and find the words to talk about suicide, because I believe... I know... that talking saves lives. It saved mine. And not just talking, listening too. A conversation; a brave, bold and necessary conversation. 

I believe we are all capable of learning how to prevent suicide, by gaining the confidence to talk about suicide in a conversation that, maybe one day, could save a life.
