To nurture yourself is to connect with you on every level – head, heart and soul
Hello, my name is Tess and I am the founder of Connect 3 Coaching.
As an experienced primary school teacher and school leader, I saw first-hand the real need for support for children and families beyond the classroom. I listened to my head, followed my heart, and ventured into the classroom of life, to discover how I could help children and grown-ups alike achieve their full potential.
I was also feeling restless in my career, working ludicrous hours and losing sight of the supposed work-life balance we’re all told to have. I became stressed and anxious, yet felt powerless to change anything even though I was sure I had so much more to offer.
Taking control, I decided to study for further qualifications so that I could work with children in a different way. I’m so happy I dared to change direction.
Feeling understood and valued is fundamental to how we function as people. This applies to children and adults just the same. We all need to be nurtured in order to grow – and we don’t stop growing just because we’ve reached our full shoe size! To nurture yourself is to connect with YOU on every level – head, heart and soul.
The sooner in life that we are open to those three connections, the sooner we can accept ourselves for all that we are – and all that we want to be.
I am absolutely passionate about the happiness of your children and I look forward to empowering them – and you – HEAD, HEART and SOUL!
