1:1 coaching package for student services managers

This package includes the following:

  • 6 x 90-minute coaching sessions with either Levi Pay or Julie Rea, normally spaced over 3 – 6 months. The sessions take place at a mutually convenient time, in person, if in the North East of England, or via Skype or telephone.

  • 360-degree feedback report. The student services manager identifies suitable respondents to an online 360-degree feedback survey who receive an email containing a link to an online survey, together with a deadline for responding. The report is discussed at the first coaching session and informs decisions about the focus and outcomes of the coaching programme. The 360-degree report focuses on areas such as strategic awareness, decision-making, relationship building, and leadership.

  • The coach is available for ad hoc phone or email contact between coaching sessions.

The cost of this package is £1,190 with the 360-degree feedback report (or £940 without the 360-degree feedback report).

Clinical supervision for mental health practitioners in higher education

We offer clinical supervision from Julie Rea, a registered mental health nurse with significant experience in managing counselling and mental health support teams in higher education.

Prices for clinical supervision range from £60-£70 per session for 60-minute sessions, or £90-£105 per session for 90-minute sessions.

Faciitated 'peer support group' meetings for higher education practitioners and student-facing teams

It has never been more important for student-facing teams in higher education to feel confident when supporting students with mental health conditions.

We can facilitate 'peer support groups' for student-facing groups of colleagues - for example, disability advisers, accommodation wardens, complaints and appeals staff, or colleagues in students' unions.

These regular sessions - often held around once a month - enable colleagues to reflect on their experiences and on difficult situations they have faced in the past. The focus is on ensuring colleagues feel confident in responding to student distress, clinical risk and maintaining effective boundaries.

These sessions can take place in person in the North-East of England, and would suit groups of up to 10 people. The cost is £150 per meeting of up to 90 minutes, with a 5% discount available for bookings of ten or more meetings
