Kate can help your school
There are so many ways we can work together to create calmer classrooms.
- Staff INSET sessions covering all aspects of staff wellbeing. You will leave the session knowing what stress is, the causes of stress and how to deal with it. You will take away a range of strategies you can use immediately as well as relaxation techniques to prevent the build up of stress in the future. Contact me to discuss your training needs.
“The most useful personal development session I’ve ever had”Anonymous Teacher
- Teaching lessons to children from early years right through to KS5. Students leave the lesson with techniques to help them handle stress and stay calm able to really thrive at school. An anxious or stressed brain cannot process information efficiently so if you want see a noticeable improvement in your results ensuring that your children are relaxed and happy is the most important change you can make. Get in touch to book your lessons.
- Delivering full day workshops in schools to help students with exam preparation or just to help build resilience. Students leave these activity days knowing the importance of staying calm, how stress works and a wide range of fun techniques to use at home and at school to help them stay relaxed and happy. Get in touch to book your workshop.
- SATs/GCSE/GCE relaxation sessions called “Stay Calm for Success”. In only one hour, students learn a wide range of ways to stay calm both during the lead up to their exams and also techniques they can use during their exams. They will know why it is so important to stay calm and focused so they can really achieve their potential. Discuss your exam relaxation needs.

If there is anything relating to wellbeing and the emotional health of your staff and students concerning you, please get in touch.
What is important is that we are caring for everyone in our schools. From the Governors and Headteacher down to our smallest nursery children. We must keep stress at a healthy level, and enable everyone to feel happy about going to school every day.

Educating trainee teachers
I am passionate about teaching trainees and giving them the tools they need to not only help the children in their classes but also give them strategies to ensure that they don’t become another statistic leaving the profession due to personal stress.
“Engaging and relatable,… interesting and beneficial. This was the best session we’ve had so far.”Secondary PGCE Students
In order to enable me to help as many teachers as possible I have created a range of Mindfulness and Relaxation Lesson Plans and MP3s which are very affordable and can be downloaded instantly from the Resources Page.
If you would like to see examples of the sort of techniques used in these lessons there are some free downloadable lesson plans too which are slightly less detailed but give you a good idea of what to expect.
I love giving teachers the strategies they need to tackle their own stress levels, and the anxiety and stress their pupils may be experiencing.
If you are concerned about yourself or a colleague please get in touch.
