Emotion Coaching

Emotion Coaching is based on the principle that nurturing and emotionally supportive relationships provide optimal contexts for the promotion of children’s outcomes and resilience.  


Staff at Springhead have been trained in the theory and methods of emotion coaching and it has been used successfully with a number of students. It helps pupils and young people to recognise and understand their emotions, validates their feelings, and then encourages them through discussion to come up with a solution of how to move forward and develop coping strategies.
