Group Sessions for Students and Young People
Equipped with over 10 years experience working in educational roles internationally, as both a trained
EFL teacher and a qualified Positive Psychologist, Coach and Mindfulness Instructor, Jenna has the practical skills to deliver
group training, an understanding of educational philosophy, classroom management and an awareness of the challenges that students and teachers face.
Offering Positive Psychology-based wellbeing workshops for school groups for topics including self-esteem, mindfulness, our relationship with the environment and its impact on wellness, resilience, confidence and Growth Mindset, she works with students in schools, academies and colleges in the South East including London, Brighton, Shoreham, Worthing, Eastbourne as well as Greater London, Surrey and other parts of Sussex.
Using applied Positive Psychology and evidence-based coaching approaches, sessions may include the exploration of emotional intelligence, the concept of flow, courage, resilience, goal setting, values and wellbeing.
Most importantly, sessions are designed with learning outcomes that include:
-Students feeling more confident in their abilities and improved self-esteem.
-Overcoming social comparison, anxiety and concerns for the future.
-Increased resilience and bouncing back from a poor grade or negative feedback.
-The ability to recognise and work with individual character strengths (VIA)
-Improved attention and focus during lessons and exams.
-Setting, pursuing and evaluating meaningful goals.
-Developing and maintaining more positive relationships with classmates, teachers, parents and themselves.
Sessions are interactive, with a presentation offering students new insights, facts, knowledge and information to take away about positive psychology followed by reflective written activities and group work.
