Educational Leaders

There’s ways of thriving even when things feel dire.

Are you a struggling leader?  Is finding a balance in among all the demands difficult for you at the moment?  There’s so many directions to be pulled in, are you finding your internal compass is a bit off?

Do you have emotional needs that are not being taken care of?  Are you being hurt at work?  Perhaps you’re one of the leaders who is being bullied, threatened or physically hurt by someone in your work community.  Maybe you’re lashing out in response.

Nearly 1 in 3 school leaders have been bullied or experienced acts of violence, and almost half have been threatened with violence.  This is unacceptable and truly difficult to cope with if it’s happening to you.

As a psychologist and the Partner Investigator and Project Manager of the Principal Health and Wellbeing project, I have unique insights into the roles and hardships experienced by school leaders.  Find out more about me.

Leaders can be very negatively affected by the emotional demands of their job.  Job satisfaction, burnout and health-related quality of life are all impacted on by dealing with heavy emotional loads at work.

I work with leaders who have had terrible experiences to help them find ways of dealing with their unique situations.

I counsel people who want to make a difference to others, but realise that they need to make a difference in their own lives first.

I help individuals who want support and strategies so they can continue in their valuable role.

Session times are flexible and can be arranged at my rooms, at your office or online.

I provide professional development and coaching regarding emotions, leadership and wellbeing to groups, with content that is tailored to your group’s needs. Coaching around work-life flow and maintaining/improving emotional wellbeing involves developing strategies for all the key parts of life (e.g., work, play, self-development, family/social relationships), activities to highlight present states and help map out preferred states, value-orienting, self-care, action-planning, problem solving, and self-evaluation.
