I help trapped mid-life teachers create fulfilment and find joy in life again
You have worked hard to qualify as a teacher, meeting the highest, most rigorous standards. You have reserves of patience others are in awe of and the resilience of a rhinoceros. Even if you are not feeling it at present, my friend, you are a hero and you deserve to feel fulfilled every day.
Rewind a few years and my life was a mess: my marriage was in ruins, as a teacher I felt like a total failure and my mental health was in the bin – I felt like, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t do enough, what I was doing wasn’t good enough…I wasn’t enough…
Yet now, through the power of coaching and using the amazing personal development tools of NLP, my life is better than it has ever been. I enjoy a peace of mind I never dreamt possible and I have a sense of fulfilment that my best is always more than good enough. That is why I am so committed to helping other teachers to get out of the trap of never feeling enough.
I know what it feels like to work long hours and still not get it all done. Teaching today is tough. Targets and policies all seem designed to drain every bit of joy in the job and demand more of teaching professionals than ever before. It can all add up to being trapped in an unfulfilling career where all the work, effort and time you devote to school is never enough. Worse, it can feel like it is taking over your whole life.
On the inside, you may feel stressed, exhausted, even horribly anxious but no way can you show that on the outside when everyone else is managing so well. You came into teaching with high ideals but now, years in when you thought you would be the experienced colleague others would look to for leadership, you are tormented by insecurity and chained to a never-ending pile of marking.
Maybe you want to cut that marking down to size. To focus on teaching, creating lessons that you love to teach where learning really happens. To have a life when you get home from school, with actual evenings and weekends – the mythical ‘work/life balance’. To feel better connected to your partner, your family and friends during term-time rather than catching up with your relationships in the holidays.
I help teachers like you all the time, and I am here to help you create fulfilment and find joy in life as never before!
