Jonny is an expert in coaching and training with young people. He has over nine years’ experience, working with over a thousand young people and youth workers to develop their confidence, communication, mental health and wellbeing. Many of whom were categorised as at risk, NEET, refugee, SEN and ESOL. In 2017 Jonny chaired the Mental Health in Schools Conference, representing Worth-it.
He also has fifteen years’ experience as a Life Coach and Hypnotherapist, helping people of all ages and backgrounds overcome addictions, phobias, anxiety, communication and relationship issues.
Jonny completed a Master’s Degree in the Psychology of Education at the Institute of Education (UCL), giving him a solid understanding of social, individual, linguistic, developmental and counselling Psychology. His final dissertation and research addressed the stress experienced by SENCos in UK schools. The learning from his MSc provides a strong foundation for every workshop and coaching session he delivers for Worth-it.
Jonny has numerous qualifications in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, up to the level of Advanced Master Practitioner, which give him the required communication skills to engage audiences and individuals (ranging from executives and educators to young people with highly challenging behaviour), helping them to change attitudes, thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
