Coaching for Teachers
Helping you thrive in a profession you love
“Working with Jo gave me the confidence to say what I really wanted. In the end it was so simple, I needn't have worried, and the difference to my working day has been immense."
Many people take the teaching that they or their children receive for granted in their lives. Unless you experience it from the inside, you do not appreciate just what a challenging career it can be. My husband was a teacher for several years and this drives my desire to help teachers thrive in a profession they have chosen
from a place of passion.
Whilst I have an understanding of the demands teaching places on individuals, I do not purport to be an expert in it. Rather, I am an expert in providing you the space to find the answers to making a change and getting what you want.
How can coaching and NLP help?
Coaching can help teachers at any stage of their career, generating fast, practical answers to help you manage your state and keep moving forward.
You may be looking to address:
Work /life balance
Difficult classes or parents
Overwhelm, anxiety or stress
Conflict with other members of staff
Pandemic related issues
Career progression and promotion
If you have moved to a more senior role, you may also want to explore:
Your leadership mindset and style
Setting and performing to targets
Your team management skills
Your vision and strategy for the school
Managing change and unpopular decisions
Fulfillment at the top
As an NQT, coaching will help you:
Make the transition to the classroom
Find your feet as an independent teacher
Manage the combination of teaching and ongoing workplan development
Learn to work with senior management
Whatever your position, as long as you are ready to take action to move forwards and make a change, I am ready to work with you. Read about what it is like to be coached here.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Jo helped me see that making time for me made me a better teacher
Some teacher stories
WISEBIRD PATH 1
This teacher was working long hours to the detriment of their family time, leisure time, eating patterns and fitness.
Coaching helped them see the life they wanted instead and make it happen.
WISEBIRD PATH 2
Be confident in the classroom
This NQT was struggling to manage difficult classes in their first school.
NLP gave them the tools they needed to manage their state so that they could look forward to their lessons and perform with confidence in them.
WISEBIRD PATH 3
Find new motivation
This head teacher had reached the top and was lacking motivation in their role.
Coaching helped them to understand what motivated them in other areas of their life and how they could apply it to inject renewed enthusiasm for their work.
WISEBIRD PATH 4
The exceptional circumstances for teachers during the pandemic had left this teacher feeling overwhelmed and anxious, and very reluctant to go to work.
Coaching and NLP helped them manage their state, manage their self talk, take back control and continue in the profession they loved.
