The Chrysalis Programme is a world class Personal Leadership and Personal Effectiveness Development Programmes, that equips individuals with the essential life skills, helping them to better own and drive positive personal change in their lives.

I am a Justice of the Peace (Magistrate) sitting on the Northamptonshire bench and an experienced Learning & Development and HR professional with over 20 years of strategic L&D, training and HR management experience working in the Royal Mail Group.  
I became frustrated that the current approach of ‘punishment led sentencing’ does not facilitate real change in offender behaviour and consequently there isn’t a reduction in levels of re-offending.  A key reason is “negative reinforcement alone is unlikely to produce a positive outcome”
