Coaching and therapeutic services

Enabling schools and families to thrive

We live in complicated times and a great deal is expected from schools and parents to raise resilient, well adjusted young people. 

CoachEd provides professional coaching and wellbeing support and supervision for teachers and school support staff.  We offer Reflective Practice sessions for teachers with pastoral responsibilities to protect their mental health.

CoachEd also offers parent or family coaching sessions, as well as counselling, coaching and mentoring for young people.  It’s hard for parents to find advice and support parenting teens, but you’ve come to the right place.

I have spent thirty years working with teachers, parents and teenagers.  My aim is to support schools and families in raising confident, resilient young people.

‘Talking to Katie this year has been invaluable.  She listened thoughtfully, validated my experience and came up with helpful ways to manage.  Katie brings a wealth of experience to the table, but in a very down to earth manner – she hasn’t forgotten what it is like to need support and guidance.’

Assistant Headteacher, Enfield.

‘Working with Katie is one of the best decisions I have ever made. She helped me gain perspective and inspired me to believe in myself when I had so much self-doubt.  She challenged my limiting beliefs and provided me with the guidance and clarity which has enabled me to thrive in my new SLT role.’

Curriculum Leader, Birmingham

“My coaching sessions helped me focus on what is important and motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things.  I am much more confident in my role.”

Head of Year 11 in a London secondary school.

“I found it helpful to have someone to speak to about pupils who self-harm as I wasn’t sure I was saying the right thing.  I appreciated the resources Katie gave me and I am now much better informed and more confident.”
