Resilience interventions

Nick is available for both bespoke consultancy and specialist interventions.

Bespoke Transformative Communication input

Nick provides bespoke Transformative Communication input relating to a wide range of issues, including;

  • Anxiety creating a barrier to learning
  • Classroom dynamics impacting on learning
  • Conflict resolution
  • Preparation for SATs
  • Preparation for Residentials

Professionals in schools are always under pressure to achieve targets and provide the best learning environment for ALL children. However, the challenges detailed above can create additional strain for children and professionals alike.

Nick’s bespoke Transformative Communication input will troubleshoot these issues in the moment, and the approach can also empower children to see that they can transfer Positive Resilience from one challenge to another.

Measurable Mentoring

Nick is available to mentor professionals, coaching teachers (and/or TAs) to use Transformative Communication to support individual (or a group of) children presenting with issues that are creating barriers to their and their class mates’ learning.
Measurable Mentoring includes an initial consultation to establish current challenges and set clear, measurable goals related to overcoming those challenges.

Nick’s approach focuses on empowering the inner voice of the children in question.

Typical communication styles unwittingly enable limiting and negative beliefs in children. Subsequently, many professionals report repetition of negative behaviour (be it poor behaviour or behaviour driven by anxiety and/or trauma).

Through mentoring, Nick will coach professionals to use Transformative Communication and empower children while positively challenging negative behaviour. The goal is to enable and unlock positive beliefs in children – it is only when the inner voice is transformed, that SUSTAINABLE change will occur.

If relevant and requested, Nick can also provide 1-to-1 work with children and parents.

What else is available for schools?

A comprehensive guide to what Nick can provide your school:

Professional Empowerment

It is not just children that have an inner voice, adults do too! We all have limiting beliefs, anxieties and stress. Working in school, whilst immensely rewarding, is also challenging. Challenges can exasperate limiting beliefs, anxiety and stress.

Through one-to-one professional empowerment/coaching sessions, Nick gently encourages professionals to explore how they might fall into negative thought and belief cycles.

The focus then is to provide your team with ideas to help themselves become more positive, empowered and Resilient.

The goal is for team members to leave these sessions with tools to take positive responsibility for themselves, freeing them up to play a more powerful part in the team.

Specific details on timings and length of interventions are flexible and available upon enquiry.
