Coaching is an opportunity for you to build awareness about yourself through guided reflection, make choices for yourself and set goals that will help you progress in the areas of life that are most important to you. You can reflect and share your ideas around your teaching as well as set goals and take action on aspects that you feel need attention. Areas that are often challenges could include overwhelm, confidence and self belief or connectivity with others. You will be supported by Justyn Waterman (qualified coach) to explore how you can become the best version of yourself which will, in turn, support your teaching.
Justyn is an experienced coach who has worked with many teaching professionals across the full range of education provision. He runs his own coaching business, Spark Change Coaching, as well as being an associate for Leadership Edge – Coaching in school, Full Circle Education Consultancy and Life Clubs. Whether working in a group coaching situation or 1 to 1, Justyn’s calm, curious and friendly style will put you at ease as you discover what you want to do in you professional or personal journey.

I have just finished a three month course of sessions with Justyn, and it is one of the best investments – financially and emotionally – that I could have made. Through his sensibility, expertise, compassion, insight and guidance, I have explored a plethora of subjects relevant to me, which have allowed me to obtain a new level of understanding about how I think, how I feel, and how these impact the professional choices I have made – and need to make in moving forwards. As humans, we each remain a constant work-in-progress, but the knowledge I have gained from Justyn has provided me with a sense of personal empowerment which has given me a renewed sense of optimism and confidence. I have already made pivotal changes, and will continue to do so.

Justyn is a fantastic coach. I highly recommend working with him! He is a thoughtful and deep listener and helped me bring attention to some stories I’d been telling myself that were holding me back. Working with Justyn helped me make progress on some areas of my work and life that felt really scary, because through the coaching I was able to see a path forward and cultivate the belief in myself that I need to succeed.
Justyn helped me identify the root of the challenges in my teaching practice; I‘m sure his own background in teaching and music was a massive help for me. Justyn’s friendly, calm and perspective manner helped me face a lot of realities and also helped me analyse what I can be doing to make myself more content in my work.
