Hi everyone

Hi everyone.

My name is Darryl and I work and live in Bangor, Northern Ireland. Although i had a deaf friend during my teenager years, he was a fantastic lip reader, so we rarely had to sign and the signs he did show me, were generally curse signs. Forward to the present day and nearly twenty old years later and i have always wanted to learn BSL and now have the means and financial ability to do so. 

My background is Mental health and Learning disability services but two years ago, i 'retired' and went into self employment as a Hypnotherapist / Counsellor as well as a Hypnobirthing practitioner . I also teach hypnotherapy in a local university for a national teaching organisation.

So by learning BSL, as well as personal achievement, it may also help me in my working life as I have supported couples during pregnancy that have hearing difficulties. 

Thanks for reading.

    • Hi, My name is Andy and I work as a CSI for the police. I am learning BSL as I tend to deal with incidents such as burglaries where the victims are elderly and vulnerable. On occasion they will be deaf so signing could help me to communicate with them and help them in what is usually a really upsetting time. Even the finger spelling so far and basic questions will be a massive leap. Really excited.
    • Hi everyone!  I've always wanted to learn BSL as it's such a useful skill to have. I am going to uni in September so if I were to meet a deaf person, I would now feel much more confident and excited to use the BSL I have been learning.  Hope everyone is staying safe :)
    • Haha i was the same. Put it up on Facebook and told family and you should as it is an amazing achievement  Yes it feels like going in new and blind almost for me too. No we dont have any training to do but heard layout going to completely change operating of the day and just so unknown. Not helped by fact i support a student in my job with epilepsy and her seizures are triggered by anxiety nervousness etc so me and her family who im very close to are worried. What is it you do again? 
    • Well, thank you for the vote of confidence, when I get my certificate I will be framing it and showing it off to everybody I know haha 😂 But seriously, congrats again on acing the final exam. Well deserved.   I'm not surprised you're nervous about heading back, I know for me it's definitely going to feel like I'm starting a new job when I eventually get the go ahead to go back in. Just curious, but do you have to take any additional health and safety course or additional training befor
