Schools

Imagine having access to tailored interventions for students who face challenges in engaging with their learning environment. Interventions which encompass crucial aspects of social-emotional learning, emotion coaching, positive behaviour support and zones of regulation; equipping students with coping mechanisms, brain science basics and a deep understanding of their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how to express these appropriately.

Behaviour is a form of communication - Beneath the behaviour is a feeling. Beneath the feeling is a need. If we begin to meet the need rather than focus on or judge the behaviour, we can start to make lasting changes in young people's lives.

As a looked after child for 9 years and a professional background in residential children's homes and SEMH (Social, Emotional, and Mental Health) schools, Ben has a wealth of experience working with young people and a deep understanding of the unique challenges that children face 

Our philosophy revolves around nurturing emotional well-being within a secure learning environment. Research indicates that when children feel safe to learn, experiencing freedom from judgment and criticism while being treated with kindness and respect, their neurological systems function optimally, leading to increased capacity for growth and learning.

Our primary goal is to provide children with not only knowledge about the world, but also essential life skills. These encompass emotional intelligence, a growth mindset, critical thinking, an embrace of failure, as well as practical, evidence-based strategies that can be applied at home, in school, and everyday life.

We firmly believe that by prioritising children's emotional well-being over an excessive emphasis on academic intelligence, the learning process becomes natural and boundless, facilitating greater knowledge acquisition.

What Do They Look Like?

Our 6-week 1 on 1 interventions are tailored to students who may find it challenging to fully engage in education, as well as children with EHCP's or Looked After Children.

 

These sessions offer a safe and non-judgmental space for students to develop crucial skills. Over the course of six sessions, students will embark on a journey of growth:

Week 1: Understanding Emotions and their Function: In the first session, students will delve into the realm of emotions, learning to recognise and express their feelings effectively.

Week 2: Zones of Regulation: In week 2, students will explore the concept of emotional zones, gaining valuable tools to manage their emotions in different situations.

Week 3: Coping Strategies and Toolkit: In session three, students will focus on techniques to foster self-regulation, empowering them to navigate challenges with confidence. We begin to build a 'toolbox' that they can use at home or in the classroom.

Week 4: Building Social Emotional Skills - Facial Expressions and Body Language: This session will concentrate on honing social skills, equipping students with the tools to cultivate positive relationships, interactions and learning about basic expression of emotions and how to spot them in others.

 

Week 5: Self-Awareness and Mindful Thinking: Students will engage in mindfulness practices, promoting relaxation and mental well-being as they progress through the program. Building Social Emotional Skills: This session will concentrate on honing social skills, equipping students with the tools to cultivate positive relationships and interactions.

Week 6: Reflecting and Moving Forward: The final session encourages students to reflect on their progress and set the stage for continued growth and development.

Through these interventions, students will learn to express their thoughts and emotions effectively, replacing impulsive actions with clear communication. 

The sessions run on a weekly basis after 6 weeks - covering different emotional intelligence topics each week. The program is most effective when repeated numerous times to give the students a chance to recap the ideas and concepts that are taught.
