An award winning coach has been providing local educational professionals with an insight into how coaching techniques can have a positive impact on children who are anxious. Karen Cruise, founder of Flourishing Minds, led the half day session organised by YES@ Areté Learning Trust. 

Karen used case studies to explain to the group how life coaching empowers young people to manage their anxieties, realise their potential, improve their self-esteem and self-belief, equips them with life-changing tools to help them be their best self now and into their adulthood. Karen has shown that ensuring parents and teachers are part of the model can be extremely powerful

Karen outlined a range of strategies she currently uses with pupils in a number of Leeds Schools including GROW and scaling. She has also devised a strategy called  'Circle of Control' which is designed to help anyone feel happier because they feel more in control of their thoughts.
