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:

  • Time management

  • Work /life balance

  • Confidence issues

  • Difficult classes or parents

  • Overwhelm, anxiety or stress 

  • Conflict with other members of staff

  • Pupil motivation

  • 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

  • Feel supported

 

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.

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

Overcome anxiety

BIRDS-02.png

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.
