STAFF WELLBEING & LIFE - COACHING
We have been given the opportunity to work with Sam James within the partnership. Ensuring that Staff Wellbeing is a priority is in the best interest of pupils and we all know that healthy, happy, active staff = healthy, happy active pupils.
Sam's approach is very much led by the organisation she is working with, tailoring sessions to your staff and school needs. Please get in touch if you would like more information or to book a session/sessions.
"A Little bit of background to me, I am a coach and positive psychology practitioner, with a psychology background and previously worked as an addiction therapist and service manager in third sector organisations. You can find out a little more on my website (but this is predominantly aimed at my 1:1 work at the moment):
I am passionate at helping people (individuals, teams and organisations) to find ways to nurture their wellbeing, so that they can flourish in all areas of their lives. I draw on evidence based practice within all that I do, predominantly positive psychology, solution focus, cognitive behavioural and positive organisational psychology. I also like to make sure that everything I cover can be applied in a real-life situation."
Testimonial for Sam James’ whole staff Wellbeing Training.
Our staff wellbeing session with Sam was a game changer for us – so much better than anything we have done before. She came to the training session with a real insight into what pressures and stresses we face in education, as well as her expertise as a highly qualified Life Coach. Sam won everybody’s confidence immediately.
The session was engaging and thought provoking – Sam expertly and sensitively guided us on our own individual journeys and led us to find our own solutions. She helped us to understand how we can harness our strengths and recognise when our own thinking is hindering our ability to cope. By understanding our own thinking and behaviour, we were able to then identify the right coping strategies to help us as individuals and as a team.
By the end of the session we came out feeling empowered and ready for anything, and we constantly refer back to her training and ideas.
I thoroughly recommend Sam’s staff wellbeing training for any school team.
