Do you find your job satisfying, or do you dread returning to work after a weekend or holiday?
Are you struggling to cope with the paperwork and the demands of the job?
Would you like more support for yourself?
Stress is making some teachers ill.
The number of teachers taking time off for stress has increased by 10% over the last four years, with 15 local authorities seeing a 50% rise in stress-related absences. (The Guardian Dec 2012)
Many teachers are stressed because although teaching is a deeply rewarding profession it can also be very challenging at times. Over the course of a long career this can heavily impact on their professional and personal lives, denying them the satisfaction and fulfillment they deserve.
How can I help you?
With a career spanning nearly 40 years in education, both mainstream and special schools and currently in post, I can say ‘I’ve been there and I am still there!’
I understand the culture of schools and the dynamics within a department. The constant pressure to keep up with new initiatives and the resulting workload. Needing to feel valued and supported and feeling confident to express your opinions. Don’t wait until you are completely burnt out before seeking help, so that you can put a stress management strategy in place.

I can help you to gain clarity. First of all, to define and understand the causes of stress and how to recognise stress in yourself and others.
Together, we will identify your own particular stressors—from the outside and the inside, then work together to create your own blueprint for recovery.
This may include:
- Relaxation and Wellbeing Techniques
- Writing for Emotional Release
- Creating a Better Work/Life Balance
- Confidence Coaching
- Time Management
- Goal Setting and other skills
The number of teachers suffering from stress and burn out is increasing and this is well documented in the press.
