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. These schools include the following, All Saints Primary School, Fulham, DUCKS, The Willow Nurseries, Corpus Christ Catholic School, Brixton, Beeston Hall, York House, Cokethorpe, St Johns Walham Green.
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!
