Emotional Wellbeing

Emotion Coaching

Emotion Coaching is built on the work of the child psychologist John Gottman.  In the UK it has been taken up by an organisation called Nurture UK and is commonly adopted in schools.  As a staff team we want all adults to use the language and approaches within Emotion Coaching to support children during times of heightened emotion and be able to guide them to find a suitable response or solution to the feelings they are experiencing.  Check out the short videos produced by Specialist Teacher Heather Woodcock, who ran our staff training sessions on Emotion Coaching this week, it is something that parents can use at home too.
