I wonder what brought you here?
Was it just one book too many on that pile of marking?
Finding it difficult to keep working relationships harmonious?
Work seems to be taking over all you do?
The student that has so many needs they take up all your time?
Not sleeping well? Eating poorly?
Lost your motivation and passion for a job you really do love underneath?
Holidays are all you think about?
Feeling guilty about not doing enough?
Maybe something else?
Coaching can provide some useful strategies for you to use to deal with all of the above
and they don't just work in school - you can use them in your personal life too!
This is just an idea of some of the things you could benefit from:
A way of seeing others' perspectives
A tool to help you manage potentially stressful situations such as interviews.
A method to hone your communcation skills and understand others better
So if you want to:
Find your energy and passion for teaching again
Find the best way to manage stress
Use great strategies on yourself and with your students and colleagues.

Coaching for teachers
I have greater self-belief and more confidence. My biggest realisation is I'm better than I think I am....
I felt very at ease working with Nicola. I looked forward to the sessions and the hour went by very quickly. The follow up emails helped to keep me on track and remind me of what I said.
