One of the biggest passions of HeadStrong is to help young people achieve and that means that the work we do in schools is some of our most treasured and valued.
As experienced educators we all know about the intellectual side of learning; we understand the balance between rote and experiential, we know we can't operate a one size fits all teaching style, we are skilled in helping our young people prepare for exams but we are still developing our skills in the emotional side of learning. How does stress affect the learning effectiveness of students? What is the best way for the mind to organise large amounts of information to make it easily accessible when under pressure? How to we re-engage the disengaged? Are we teachers, therapist, counselors or are we all 3?

Due to the wide range of issues that we can help with it is always best to call us and we will come and visit you personally and speak to you abaout what you need and how we can help.
