Our Vision:

A thriving generation ready for modern life

For Young People
Our mission is to equip you with the emotional tools to thrive in a 21st century world.
For Parents
Through workshops, talks and presentations we support parents in helping their children navigate the modern world.
For Educators
Whatever path of support we use – coaching, mentoring, therapy or counselling – we integrate with high quality pedagogy, thereby ensuring that pupils are upskilled in terms of their ability to access the curriculum. The destination, however, is the same: a thriving generation, ready to shape the future.
For Business
Training and best practice consultation for supporting young workers and apprentices transitioning from education to the workplace.

Championing the belief that emotional well-being is just as important as physical health.

We work with young people, parents, carers and schools, to equip the next generation with the tools to thrive in the modern world – helping prepare them for adulthood.     

With a unique combination of substantial classroom experience and an array of credible qualifications, we get results. And what’s more, we’re committed to ongoing learning as theories and perspectives change.     

Through bespoke one-to-one sessions, workshops, presentations, training, talks and programmes – our ambition is simple: to create a world where our children are emotionally resilient, with the tools to successfully steer through modern life.

In Their Words

See what teachers, parents and students have to say about their work with us.
Tuition, coaching and 1-1 support not only had positive outcomes for both my sons’ exam results but also on their confidence, self esteem, resilience and belief that they could succeed. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone no matter what their child's ability.

Rachael was unlike other teachers I had- she genuinely cared for each and every student, and by dedicating extra time and energy into listening to my thoughts, ideas and worries, she helped me become more confident with my work and generally increased my self-esteem overall.
As a Teaching Assistant, I worked with both Rachael Bushby and Claire Pass for several years, and I can honestly say that it was always a pleasure. I've seen the most reluctant teenagers looking forward to having a lesson with either of them. Rachael and Claire can change 'I can't' or 'I won't' into 'I can' and 'I will'.
