My main concern as a primary school teacher has always been the emotional wellbeing of the pupils in my care, if that is not right then nothing much else is.
With this in mind I joined two institutes at The Yale Centre of Emotional Intelligence learning to rollout the RULER Approach in schools. Over the last five years I have had the great pleasure of training and supporting Nurseries, Pre-Prep and Primary schools to embed the RULER approach into the heart of their schools.
My years as a teacher, pastoral lead, school listener, wellbeing coach, safeguarding lead, bereavement support and education consultant has lead me to establish my own private counselling practice. http://www.the-connected-family.com.
Writing parenting advice pieces for Mumfidential and acting as their Agony Aunt answering emails from parents who want a little gentle advice gives me lots of food for thought!
