About Sheila

I started the company to support individuals in their personal development and provide training for professionals in supporting vulnerable children and teaching reading – see the training coaching and consultancy we offer by clicking the services tab. But first you can find out a bit more about me by reading below.

A bit about me!

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

After training and working as a nurse and health visitor I completed a degree, in psychology and sociology and began to teach. Initially, teaching students in a further education setting on level 5 social care and childcare courses but then completing a PGCE and teaching in schools and specialist settings for many years. I then moved to work in local authorities in behaviour support, inclusion and most recently as head of Virtual school for children in care in a number of different Local Authorities.

As author of ‘Overcoming Barriers to Learning’ a book to support teachers and school staff working with vulnerable students, I now spend a lot of time training on subjects like trauma, adversity, attachment, behaviour management, mental well being, and more, with staff in schools, foster carers, social workers or other agencies either via my own training company or as a freelance trainer.

I also offer training for teachers, tutors and support staff in teaching reading, specifically using phonics and I run regular personal development courses while continuing to write about issues related to education, well-being and personal development. I have recently published my second book ‘Make it Magnificent – a self help book about mindset available form our shop or Amazon or local bookshops
