On 16 November 2017, Elsie facilitated  a similar mentoring session to the one that she did in April 2017,  under the  Southend A Better Start Work  Skills Programme.   In addition to covering routes to a career in the legal profession she covered work life balance for working parents with children,  and for those parenting alone.

Following the session, I sent an email to Elsie as follows : “ Thank you very much for  today, and for all the preparation you put in before this session. It is very much appreciated, and the feedback was first class.”

On 27th July 2017, Elsie gave a presentation to the Black and Minority Ethnic Forum. After the meeting, I sent an email to a group of people providing feedback on the session.  In the email I said:

“Dear all, just to let you know Elsie Anakwue did  a very interesting and inspiring presentation to the Black and Minority Ethnic Forum yesterday, summarising the areas she covered  for the ABSS Parents, and explaining some of the follow up success to the session including a parent who was inspired to begin a college course immediately after attending the session. Elsie also covered the topics of “ Time Management” and “Juggling Work and Family Life”, and also her role as a parenting coach. Elsie – thank you!”

On 27 April 2017, Elsie delivered an incredible motivating and powerful session to our A Better Start parents , from the more disadvantaged communities. During the session, she covered  topics such as pursuing a  career in law, tips and helpful points, different roles within the legal sector and  her story. The last part of the session covered work/life balance including advice for working parents with children.

On 28th June 2017, Elsie’s sterling work on the A Better Start Programme was included as an agenda item on the Black and Minority Ethnic Forum at Southend – on – Sea Borough Council.

As a mother raising three children (one is a teenager), in the 21st century and with the avalanche of different social media platforms available for children and young adults; I strongly encourage all parents to partake in this course. As all modern parents know, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to maintain the balance of shielding our children at a young age from unsuitable relationships and inappropriate pornographic information easily accessible to them through social media, friends and other associations; whilst being able to educate them gradually on sexual relationships at an appropriate age. This course raised my awareness on all the above and was insightful, very helpful and highlighted areas of awareness that every parent should implement to safeguard our children. Prior to getting involved on the course, I believed that I did not need any help in communicating with my children about sex and relationships. However, during the program I was surprised to find that there was a vast amount that I needed to be schooled on, in order to be able to educate and communicate effectively to my children. I would highly recommend this course as it was captivating, very informative and a very beneficial tool in shielding children and young adults from getting involved and being exposed to vulnerable situations that could negatively impact on their burgeoning development and behaviour. I applaud all the organisers and experts that were involved on the program and look forward to further courses organised by them.

Elsie is a wonderful mentor & coach providing advice & guidance that is relevant, helpful & supportive of people from all walks of life. I would thoroughly recommend joining her Facebook group which offers discussion of all sorts of interesting topics for families including issues with children, schooling, relationships, religion & much more! The group provides a safe space to offer your opinions & discuss with others without feeling in anyway persecuted for having a different opinion – all opinions are welcomed. In my role as a Personal Trainer, I was lucky enough to work with Elsie on the topic of health & fitness offering both discussion on healthy eating & a live home workout for busy parents & children alike! It was so much fun to be a part of & enabled the group to share their own healthy recipes (which was fantastic as the group is very diverse so we had recipes from various cultures/countries!) Well done Elsie on your venture & keep up the great work!

I recently took part in the Child Protection/Age appropriate sex education online course on the 9th and 10th June 2017. As a social worker specialising on child protection, I still found the course refreshingly informative with great attention to detail. Well done Elsie!

Dear Elsie,
I attended your course in April 2017 which inspired and motivated me to further my studies. I am currently studying to be a Counsellor. Thank you so much for all your help, you are a one in a million mentor and coach.

What is the very best way of parenting? There are of course no right or wrong answers; it is entirely a subjective assessment. What does the very best parenting mean? Good, top notch, first class perhaps? In trying to achieve the so-called best parenting, will you aim for less than that? Of course not! You will aim to be the very best and do the very best in working towards it!

It depends on the message you are trying to convey and that’s the Anakwue way!
