Programmes

Why wait a lifetime before you do something about your life and all you want to achieve from it?  It’s never ever too early or too late to start.

Through Lessons-in-Self I create and deliver inspirational and transformational educational programmes that provide an education for life, authentically supporting YOU whether you’re beginning, or already on the journey of life.

For Schools

Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if we could create grounded and self-confident children, who throughout their time growing up are able to form a solid sense of love and acceptance of self and others?  Who, despite falling, have tools for life which support them on their journey (the obstacles and difficult tests that come along) so they come out brighter and self-assured from the experience?

Well, that’s my vision.  Able to adapt my programmes for various educational contexts, including primary, secondary, and higher education, I want to inspire, empower and motivate young people by building resilience, compassion, an understanding of Self and others.

My teacher training programmes provide a more in-depth exploration into the key principles of Lessons-in-Self and how to implement them into your classroom. There are also programmes for teachers’ well-being and success too!

Creating a Healthy Sense of Self

The tasks are both suitable for L1 and L2 speakers of English.  Though at first language tasks appear unassuming, they have the creative potential to reach deeper.

Linguistically, they are so simple they can be used with almost any level and teaching context including adults, teens and young learners. Learners engage in meaningful tasks that aim to foster and develop a healthy sense of Self, by providing them with key life skills essential within and outside the classroom setting.

Creating our Visions – Using Vision Boards in Schools to Promote a Healthy Sense of Self

This exciting content-based lesson, which integrates English and arts, is suitable for primary and secondary school contexts.  In this session, learners are introduced to the concept of vision boards and why it is useful to create one.  

Thinking about their desires and then using a range of art materials and magazines, they (teacher included! ☺) create vision boards.  At the end of the session learners share their creations and visions with their peers.

…for teachers

Teachers’ Pathways to Success: Discovering your Creativity and Purpose in ELT

The tasks are both suitable for L1 and L2 speakers of English.  Though at first language tasks appear unassuming, they have the creative potential to reach deeper.

Linguistically, they are so simple they can be used with almost any level and teaching context including adults, teens and young learners.

Creating a Healthy Sense of Self through ELT

This teacher’s workshop presents a range of meaningful activities that aim to support and develop a healthy sense of Self and can be used by both teachers and learners alike. Though at first these activities appear unassuming, they have the creative potential to reach a much deeper level. Linguistically, they are so simple they can be used with almost any level and teaching context, adults, teens and young learners. If you like to think outside the box and are open to new ideas, would like to ignite the creative potential within yourself and your learners whilst simultaneously developing well-being, happiness and success – then Lessons-in-Self is for you.

Teachers – Creating our Visions with Vision Boards

This workshop presents an English and arts lesson in which a class of secondary school learners created vision boards, a creative visualisation tool that uses words and pictures to represent goals and dreams.  

Providing clear steps into creating a vision board, you will have an opportunity to experience creating your own in the second part of the workshop, leaving inspired to try out this important visualisation tool with your learners.

…and for you too!

I believe we all have superpowers. It may be you just haven’t discovered yours yet. My transformational education programmes teach YOU about the power you have within so you can work through any self-limiting beliefs, blocks and obstacles to make a pivotal and transforming change to your life.

Now for the not so small, small print – these tools WILL NOT fully protect you from falling completely.

Can’t do that. Not in my capabilities, I’m afraid.

Why?

Well because falling is all part of the fun, the biggest learning opportunities happen when you fall and get up again.

In fact, it’s how you get up again that counts:

 

  1. React, like you’ve always done: 

same lesson + same action 

re-take lesson

2. Re-act by acting differently

 

same lesson + different action 

lessons learnt!

Soooooo, look at Lessons-in-Self as your map, your guidebook, your A-Z of lessons, your life’s toolbox filled with tips and advice to personally support you and/or others help make life’s journey a little less bumpy.

Everyone should have access to an education for life.
