I am the Managing Director of Education and Wellbeing for Coram, responsible for Coram Life Education and Coram Beanstalk's vision for children and young people to develop social and emotional skills for the future.
I am responsible for Coram Life Education and its reach and impact in schools across the UK, working with trustees, central team and local delivery partners to ensure our service to schools is consistent and high-quality. I have been a leader within children and young people's charities for 30 years - previously for Brook Young People's charity and, since 2015, at Coram.
Of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing, Take Notice resonates most for me. It's the little things we live in, that can lift our spirits. Whether it's a friendly bus driver, a flower that's managed to grow out of a wall, bird song in the middle of a city, or the kindness of strangers - I try to take notice, to find balance through this.
