Reclaiming Our Students

Fact: Children are more anxious, aggressive, and shut down than ever.

Faced with this epidemic of emotional health crises and behavioral problems, teachers are asking themselves what went wrong. Why have we lost our students? More importantly: how can we get them back?

Emotional Health Consulting

Sometimes, all it takes is for a single incident in our school to make us realize that something has to change. I have partnered with Hannah Beach to advise schools on how to effectively navigate issues like bullying, aggression, anxiety, and apathy.

Our approach does not focus only on preventing “bad” behaviour or keeping students safe from harm. Our ultimate goal is to support schools of all types to create flourishing learning communities, ones where empathy, inclusion and caring reign.
