Coaching has taught me how to look after myself and my well-being as well as looking after the well-being of others and this has impacted greatly on my leadership!
– Primary Headteacher
Since I met June, I haven’t had one moment of doubt about applying for the headship – which is a big step from where I had been. I am truly appreciative of the opportunity for us to work together and feel that this couldn’t have come at a better time for me.

The coaching helped me focus on what were my biggest barriers and find ways to tackle them in small achievable goals. The wasted time I now save by not having to sift through paper mountains and the sleep I now get through not worrying about impending deadlines is INVALUABLE. I would strongly recommend coaching with June – in fact after trying it myself I set it up for all of our senior leaders.
In an hour you’ve pulled something concrete out of, quite frankly, a swamp! I’ve got strategies I couldn’t have imagined and I feel energised. It’s simply the most amazing experience.
Thank you for your support in helping me to believe in myself and to give myself permission to apply for vacancies. It was a key factor in shaping my thoughts in preparation for the interview. The interview was very successful and I have been offered, and have accepted the job.
Working with June helped me to focus on the various aspects I found difficult, challenging me to think about what I could do, rather than telling me what to do. This gave me the confidence to act and gradually organise my life. The strategies that evolved through these sessions continue to guide me.
Onto the really positive news! On Friday I was successful, after a full on 4 hour selection process, to be offered the role! I am so very happy to have scored exactly the job I want in the place I want to be! Your coaching definitely improved my ability to show in the interview what I am capable of and in helping me to prepare positively.

Incredibly valuable. Where I thought I couldn’t cope with anymore I realise I can and would like to!! These sessions have given me time to reflect and build belief in myself. I’m not stressed now despite lots of stressful situations at times!! Feeling less stressed and ready to take next steps.
– Head of Department
When I left the session I felt so good about myself, like I could do anything I put my mind to! I had this amazing buzz and confidence that gave me so much energy when I went back to school. The students even asked me what was up! In one session I left feeling like a massive pressure (which I hadn’t realised existed) had been alleviated. I felt more confident going into the next challenge. It’s been brilliant.
– Teacher and More Able Coordinator
I have learnt so much about myself and completely changed my outlook and approach to situations because of these sessions. It was such a safe, positive space (thank you June) that it left me feeling so calm, capable and positive about even the most difficult of challenges. It is something that all teachers should have access to during the year.
I can honestly say that I felt at the brink of despair and was close to resigning as a teacher because I had entirely lost focus as to why I had always wanted to be a teacher; the children. I felt as though I was in a deep, dark well and couldn’t escape but after your coaching sessions and being receptive, I feel as though I am back firing on all cylinders. Of course coaching isn’t a miraculous cure but it has given me so much to think about, challenged me, given me immense hope but ultimately the strength to enjoy life as a committed teacher.
