Hi, I’m Ben Jackson. Thanks for stopping by The Parent and Pupil Coach. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.
Changing the World by Changing its Future, One Child at a Time
The Parent and Pupil Coach delivers the Youth Education Support (YES) programmes. A series of early intervention behavioural change programmes aimed at 10-16 year olds still in education. It focuses on self-esteem, confidence, anxiety and resilience, as well as healthy relationships, gang and drug use.
Providing Leadership and Transition coaching for My Family Care, I offer both 1-to-1 and group coaching for career parents. Over the last 12 months I’ve delivered seminars and webinars on various parenting themes.
My ebook, Work/Life Balance: Getting it Right published by Bookboon, will be released in Spring 2017.
I am also a dad of three and have been the primary carer since my youngest was 10 months old. So yes, I’ve changed a fair few nappies, had poo accidents at the swimming pool (not mine, my kids), and found myself overwhelmed by wearing too many hats and struggling because of it.
What I am about, my passion, is seeing and helping someone fully achieve their potential, to be the ultimate expression of who they are.
“I’m doing really well .. the work we did together and the techniques you taught me have really helped me to manage my mind much better. I’ve noticed my less effect from the changing light in the Spring and now heading into Autumn/Winter. I’m really grateful for the help you gave me.” – Tom P.
“Finding Ben was a pivotal and much needed awakening to my personal growth. He was able to very quickly distil issues and put in place tools and suggestions for me to regain clarity and focus. His out of hours commitment to making your change happen was amazing, a real source of support and in making new awakenings effective. I would highly recommend Ben as well as thank him for empowering real change in my life.” – Jon N.
From parenting workshops:
“Ben is open and very understanding and nonjudgemental. As well as fantastic energy levels, he has a captivating story, and also is both calm and relaxed aura
“Ben, the energy you bring to the session is great and very beneficial.”
“I got a lot from the session and would highly recommend it.”
“A great session – very useful and engaging.”
“Really useful time spent…well worth the effort to attend.”
From recent schools’ programmes:
“I have enjoyed the course and it has made me a very confident person.”
“I really enjoyed this course. It helped me to improve my confidence and sense of humour. It helped me to be motivated in life; What to do in life and how to deal with life’s stress.”
“I thought that the course was great because now I know what I need to do to get my grades.”
“The thing that I liked about the course is that there’s no right or wrong answer – it’s just think what you think.”
