What is Holistic Learning & Coaching?

Founded on our W.A.T.C.H.E.R Tool© and WELLBEING PATHWAY our integrated and practice-based process builds personal awareness and interpersonal connection for wellbeing literacy. 

I integrate best practice pedagogy with a research-based and a holistic approach to wellbeing to deliver one-on-one coaching sessions that are tailored to the specific needs of each child.

Why do children need coaching?

Parents generally approach me to coach their child to support them in one or more aspects of their life. For example, their child may be striving academically, but may need some support in terms of building social interactions and peer relationships.

Alternatively, their child might be physically active but finding it challenging to sit still and focus on their academic schoolwork. 

Whatever the issue – whether a child is displaying intense emotional outbursts, anxiousness, shyness or anti-social behaviour or anything else – our thorough assessment and holistic approach means we usually get to the bottom of their concerns & provide them with the skills to thrive!

How we work together

We work with primary aged children in fun and interactive one on one sessions.  We can do this online or onsite as needed and available. 

Through a series of assessments, one on one dialogues, play based activities, movement and yoga practice, breathing techniques and academic support, each child will receive an individual development plan to follow with me through the sessions.

Parents are a key player in this coaching to help establish initial developmental goals and then encourage and celebrate progress along the way.  

Phase 1 sees us build a child’s wellbeing literacy.  For some families this may be enough. But as primary school teachers we can also move to Phase 2 to help with academic support. 

Together we work to determine the most suitable path for each child.
