Proactive Early Support Aligned with PSHE & Mental Health Curricula

Teaching explicit strategies for wellbeing and positive mental health is integral to any effective approach to school-wide mental health. Providing workshops or wellbeing lessons to pupils and students is a simple way to introduce key tools and personal resources that support the development of wellbeing and resilience.

Our workshops provide proactive early support that encourages the development of resilience and wellbeing in children and young people through offering ideas, tips, and self-help strategies. This approach meets the requirements of PHSE, RSE and Mental Health curriculums.

Schools we deliver workshops for often use pupil premium or recovery premium funding to provide our workshops to reduce barriers to learning associated with poor wellbeing and resilience.

Positive Psychology Coaching
for Young People

Our solution focused positive psychology coaching supports young people to build resilience and develop effective personalised strategies for maintaining their own wellbeing. We work in partnership with schools and organisations to deliver coaching programmes for young people.

Coaching is individual to each young person. The coach works with the young person to identify personal areas for development that will contribute to increased wellbeing and resilience.

Coaching can cover:

  • Learning to ask for help and reduce the negative coping strategies that they have previously relied on (which can include avoiding school, self-harming or substance misuse).

  • Developing sustainable self-help strategies that can be used after the coaching sessions are completed.

  • Developing self-awareness, confidence, and communication skills essential for positive mental health.

  • Supporting the young person to find solutions that help them manage challenges they face.

  • Building skills and abilities that help with a range of issues affecting young people.

  • Learning and practice a range of positive coping strategies that help young people to improve mental health and resilience.

As a result of coaching, young people will:

  • Learn to develop trust with a supportive adult and talk about problems they may have been bottling up, resulting in improved communication and behaviour.

  • Be able to regulate and control their reactions to situations.

  • Develop self-awareness and personal character strengths, building self-worth and confidence.

  • Develop different perspectives to find solutions in order to overcome challenges.

  • Organisations and schools commission block coaching programmes for cohorts of young people.

  • Our team of qualified coaches liaise with the organisation/school to arrange the delivery of the coaching sessions.

  • Sessions are conducted in confidence virtually using zoom or your preferred online conferencing platform.

  • The sessions are confidential between the coach and young person, each young person is set up with their own coaching log to share notes and coaching resources with their coach.

  • The young person can track their progress through their individualised coaching progress log.

  • You can allocate coaching sessions through your coaching portal track the young person's engagement and progress.

How our Support for Children and Young People improves Wellbeing and Resilience

Our work and research has shown that skills for resilience and wellbeing skills are developed through the experience of taking part in the workshop or the coaching relationship, through explicit learning and practising the skills and strategies for wellbeing and resilience inside and outside the coaching or workshop sessions.

Our approaches allow young people to take responsibility and ownership for their thinking, feelings and behaviour. The wellbeing skills and resilience strategies the young people develop through positive psychology coaching and workshops combine these three broad interrelated categories.

Interpersonal and Relationship Skills

Skills and strategies that develop positive relationships and the skills to make and maintain them. This can include communication skills, friendship and teamwork skills.

Self and Emotional Awareness Skils

Strategies that develop self-knowledge, self- acceptance and positive self-image. These are combined with strategies that develop emotional literacy.

Thinking Skills

Skills that help young people developing a positive outlook, deal with challenges and take responsibility for their progress through goal setting, action planning and problem solving.

“How wonderful it was to work with you. The children learnt so much from you and we all felt inspired by your enthusiasm.

As a school, we were hoping to find someone who could help us to promote a message of self-confidence and self-worth, but also to help the children realise that it is up to them to do their best to think in a positive way. That message was put across so very clearly. We were very lucky to have found you!”
