Online & Onsite Talks for Staff

Building Emotional Regulation

Learn how children develop emotional regulation, how we can help them increase their tolerance of difficult emotions, build emotional intelligence, and remain calm when their buttons are pushed.

Addiction, Gaming & Gambling

This talk looks at behavioural addiction, how it changes the brain and impacts executive functioning, the pathway to addiction, the cycle of addiction, signs of gaming and gambling addiction, treatment options, and how to address addiction with young people.

Diversity & Inclusion

This talk considers how to create an equal playing field for all members of a school community.  It looks at the protected characteristics, personal biases and how to challenge them, neurodiversity and multiple intelligences, the relative age effect, and gender equality.

Safe bases & Spaces

This talk explores Attachment Theory and how we can create learning environments which support young people with insecure attachment styles. It looks at the developmental stages of childhood and adolescence, and what schools can do to ensure a successful transition through each stage.

Mindfulness Through The Lens Of Authentic Learning

Mindfulness requires us to develop the attitudes of being non-judgmental, non-reactive, curious, open, and accepting of our experiences. With practice, these attitudes can be used to improve the self-directed enquiry, problem solving, and reflection which lie at the centre of authentic learning.

Mindfulness & Trauma In Children & Young People

This talk explores the impact of childhood trauma across a lifetime, how it changes cognitive development, impacts sociability, learning, and physical health, how mindfulness can both help and hinder recovery, and what we can do in schools to help those experiencing trauma to recover.

Changing The Stories We Tell Ourselves

In this talk, we explore the impact stories have on our relationships, our self-esteem, and our attitudes. We look at how our personal scripts and internal dialogues impact our mental health and wellbeing, and how we can change a negative script into a positive one.

Changing the Culture of Gender-Based Violence (GBV)

This talk encourages participants to explore their personal biases and behaviours in relation to this issue and consider how these might give implicit permission for perpetrators of GBV to continue. We explore what schools can do to challenge the spectrum of behaviour which constitutes GBV, how to support those who are victims and create environments which encourage respect and healthy relationships.

Mental Health Best Practice

Gives staff a good understanding of mental health to help them detect the signs of mental ill health as early as possible. This talk looks at the latest research around mental health in adolescence and explores best practice. We will reflect upon factors affecting children and young people’s (CYP) mental health, signs of mental distress, intervention strategies, and preventative measures.

Why Every Teenager Needs a Parrot

Looks at adolescent development and its impact on risk taking. the impact of peer pressure, when faced with choices about alcohol, drugs, relationships, pornography, and online activity. Help teenagers manage the increased responsibility that comes with the increased freedom of adolescence, and the tools to protect themselves and their reputations.  The talk is based on Alicia’s book.

Trauma in the Classroom

Learn how trauma, Adverse Childhood Events (ACE’s), and Attachment Theory show up in classrooms as unhelpful behaviour or mental health conditions, and learn what we can do to create environments which allow these pupils to feel safe and to thrive.

Creating Cultures of Success

The environments we create for our children determine whether or not they can fulfil their potential socially, emotionally and academically. This talk explores the different cultures of success parents and schools create, and how they influence attitudes, mindsets, and mental health.  It considers how we can help children develop growth mindsets, and what we can do to change fixed mindsets and overcome resistance.

Managing Worry, Stress & Anxiety

This talk explores good stress, bad stress, and what we can do to help pupils manage stress and anxiety in healthy ways. It gives staff an understanding of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and the neuroscience of emotions along with practical stress management strategies.

Staying Calm When Buttons Are Pushed

Understand the unconscious mind and how it drives behaviour. This talk explores aspects of Transactional Analysis and gives strategies to avoid manipulative game playing and achieve positive outcomes from difficult interactions with others.

Building Resilience in Young People

Foster resilience in young people so that they can bounce back from adversity and meet life’s challenges robustly. By encouraging self-esteem, self-efficacy, self-awareness, and self-management we give them confidence in their capabilities, judgement, and resources, and help them to become independent, and courageous individuals.

Personal Biases Explored

Our personal biases are often unknown to us, but they will have an impact on how we treat others.  This talk aims to raise awareness of unconscious biases, and challenge belief systems so that we can ensure an equal playing field for all pupils.

Mindsets Explained

This talk explores the different mindsets, how they develop, their impact on potential, how the goal cultures we create influence mindsets, and what we can do to change fixed mindsets to growth mindsets.

Managing Stress For Teachers

This talk is designed to give staff a clear understanding of stress, and the red flags signalling potential burnout.  It encourages reflection on their individual coping strategies and explores the coping strategies which underpin resilience and wellbeing, and what we can do to encourage personal resilience and boost wellbeing.
