Coaching and wellbeing

Our focus is around wellbeing. Coaching is a wonderful way of facilitating wellbeing across the school community.

We find that when leaders and teachers operate from a place of clarity, then the whole school benefits.

Our approach is very simple. We help people to re-connect to their innate resilience and resourcefulness and to tap into the extraordinary potential that resides within.

From a settled space of clarity teachers and leaders get back in touch with their internal creativity through building relationships and listening.

We find that when leaders and teachers are connected with their own wellbeing then this awakens wellbeing within children and colleagues.

What does the training look like?

Our work is mainly with school leaders. We often work with leaders across Multi-Academy-Trusts. This is an experiential training rather than an academic training. You can see more about our training options here. In other words it’s a very practical, hands-on approach to coaching. The training is a package of:

  • Training days
  • Executive coaching
  • Online Learning

We have a ‘Coaches for Leaders’ programme which is certificated. Take a look here for the costs of the programme

When leaders are part way through the training they start to consider how they might share the coaching for wellbeing approach across the school community.

Previous Case Study
Nick Hindmarsh - Principal
Liz has provided expert mentoring, coaching and support to my senior and middle leaders. Her, and her team's support was an integral part of our cultural shift in our first year, as it allowed an openness and an outlet for key staff to reflect upon and develop their practice.

Yr 6 children train the new coaches
“I have seen a huge difference in the Year 6 children; in their confidence, in the way they interact with the younger children, how they communicate with their class teacher and adults and how they have really become leaders. "
