A little bit about me

I am a speaker, trainer and author.  As a former teacher, I have a keen interest in positive and character education and I support schools with practical tools to enhance the wellbeing of children and staff inside and outside the classroom. 

I have an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) and am embarking on a Doctorate in Eduction in the Autumn of 2019, where my research focus will be on testing my model for whole-school positive education.  I am also European Representative for IPPAed (the International Positive Psychology Association's Education Division). 

I am the author of 'Recipe for Happiness' (2013) and co-author of 'Character Toolkit for Teachers' (2018).  My latest book, 'For Flourishing's Sake' (working title) is due to be published in 2020. 

Booking me

I deliver keynote speeches, workshops and training days for individual schools or groups of schools, covering all essential aspects of wellbeing, from whole-school positive and character education at a strategic level to the practical application in classrooms and across the school.

In addition to my work with teachers and school leaders, I work with students from primary school to sixth form and with parents. I can also work with schools on a consultancy basis, supporting their on-going efforts to embed wellbeing practices.
