About Us

Our Company

Working with leading neuroscience experts, our objective is to provide a whole school approach for ensuring that mental health and wellbeing becomes central to the way schools work and enable pupils to become emotionally-resilient and mentally healthy, in order to reach their full potential.

Emotional health and wellbeing is a very varied and complex area and there are no quick fix solutions. Maintaining every day, regular routines wherever possible, such as, attending school and lessons, whilst working towards managing mental health is key.

Teachers can now bring neuroscience into their classroom with a range of clear, accessible, and engaging teaching modules based on the latest evidence based research – all packaged into “ready to deliver” modules that complement the curriculum and are perfect for delivery in PSHE and/or Science lesson time.

Students, whatever their age, learn how to draw on Neuroscience when reflecting on their own experience and behaviour and find out about developing the skills necessary for continuous personal enquiry and practice. Read more about our story and impact we are having on students.

What do we offer?

Our aim is to be the “go to” resource for teachers and care givers of young people on mental health and wellbeing and life skills development learning.

Neuroscience includes a wide range of topics. These can be split into two categories:

  1. Mental health and wellbeing – e.g. Bullying, Stress and exams anxiety, Mindfulness, etc.
  2. Life skills development – e.g. Emotional Intelligence, Self esteem, Friendships, etc.

  • Sociology – eg. social skills, communication skills, logic, reasoning and negotiation
  • Cognitive Science – eg. family relationships, emotional development, mediation, forgiveness and anger, coping with failure and rejection, negotiating, social intelligence, emotional intelligence, people skills, decision, perceptions, lateral thinking, positive psychology, stress management, empathy, confidence, neuropsychology, attitude, self-concept
  • Philosophy – eg. values, moral development, reasoning, social and emotional cognition, higher order cognition
  • Social Science – eg. interpersonal relations, self-control, responsibility, resilience, critical thinking, positive attitudes, objectivity, integrity, contentment, spirituality
  • Social Neuroscience – eg. mood swings, pessimism, isolation, concerns for the body
