RESILIENCE IS A STRENGTH THAT CAN BE DEVELOPED THROUGH LEARNING

As a qualified teacher and life coach I provide a number of services which help both adults and teenagers to become more resilient, confident and less anxious. Resilience is a strength that can be developed through learning to think more positively, proactively and confidently. Practicing new strategies and new ways of thinking and embracing change is vital if people are to feel happier, stronger and more fulfilled.

How Wendy helped our students:

“Thanks to very appropriate, clear and well-structured sessions addressing a group of Y11 students struggling with stress and anxiety, Wendy helped all of them achieve their potential. We reduced by 100% the number of students unable to enter / complete examinations due to anxiety. I would highly recommend Wendy’s motivational and very personal touch with young people.”

Jodi Horobin – pastoral leader, Poynton High School, Cheshire

“Wendy was genuinely interested in what our students had to say, worked to address their concerns and offered helpful tips on managing themselves and supporting each other. She already has an excellent insight into the thought processes of the teenage mind and her sessions were fun, engaging and interactive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wendy as a presenter in other schools.”

Sarah Moores – Head of Year 11 and Well Being, Manchester High School for Girls

FACE-TO-FACE COACHING SESSIONS

If a student or delegate feels they would benefit from a more personalised approach, individual face to face sessions may be appropriate. These are very beneficial, as clients can discuss their own personal situation and positive strategies can be developed on a more individual basis. For more information on face to face life coaching
