“ A Coaching support Call is designed to offer you a safe and confidential space to talk openly and honestly about the challenges you’re facing and find meaningful solutions for overcoming them.”


As a school leader, you do an amazing job! Every day you invest enormous amounts of time, energy, passion and commitment – seeking to create better futures for our children and the communities you serve.


This isn’t easy to maintain. After a long week and the inevitable challenges of your role, it can often feel as though your energy, hope and emotional reserves are in short supply – and it can be hard to find someone to turn to for support.


But you have feelings and emotions just like the rest of us. So it’s important you have a space where you can share your thoughts, worries, concerns and find solutions to issues of key importance to you and your school – and get back in touch with the person inside.


This isn’t how things should be. That’s why I offer free School Leader support calls to all those who may benefit from a confidential space where you can…


–  Talk through the challenges you’re facing

– Get support in locating next steps and finding solutions

–  Reflect on recent events and the impact that these have had on you as a leader and as a person

–  Gain clarity around your thoughts


“Viv helped me reflect on why I do the things that I do, in the way that I do them. In doing so, she was able to bring me back to what motivated me to do this job in the first place.”

“Viv’s vast experience enabled her to analyse our discussions and get to the nuts and bolts of the situation very quickly”


“It was just such a wonderful relief to be able to speak honestly without being judged, knowing that I could examine my own thoughts out loud and not get into trouble for doing so.”
