Unlock academic potential

Increase confidence

Optimise exam performance

In an educational Performance Coaching session, your child will …

  • focus on increasing their academic performance

  • be coached in areas identified by them

  • challenge frequently occurring thinking errors which often lead to anxiety and procrastination — such as negative comparison, automatic negative thoughts, unhelpful perfectionism, overestimating stressors, and self-doubt

Performance Coaching will help your child to develop and use their inner coach, as opposed to their inner critic

  • Build confidence by promoting more rational thinking patterns

  • Generate effective strategies to optimise performance

Coaching sessions focus on how to implement effectively aspects of Mindfulness, relaxation strategies to cope with exam anxiety, and working and building on your child’s identified Key Strengths, as based upon the Positive Psychology approach.

The sessions build on Carol Dweck’s Growth Mindset.  We practise the SPACE, ABCDE, and GROW models to help your child find, build and work on their Signature Strengths and so realise their academic goals.

Pepita is a Chartered Psychologist, and Head of Psychology at a leading independent school. She has many years’ experience of helping students optimise their academic performance and increase their resilience and confidence. In her research, Pepita has documented evidence of the many positive effects of using performance coaching with students.  She trains teachers nationwide on how to use coaching to raise students’ exam performance, well-being and perseverance.

A recent testimonial: Pepita is an excellent tutor. She is truly dedicated to the task, and is also astute in assessing and then adjusting to the current situation as well as quite complex learning needs. She not only has helped my son but she has also helped me understand how I can help him. Both my son and I appreciate the quality of the sessions. You feel as if, with Pepita, there is never a wasted moment!

And another: Excellent – we couldn’t be happier. Pepita’s early sessions with our son made an immediate impact on him. We think she has played a big role in shifting his feelings about work and his capacity to apply himself. We are looking forward to picking up again with Pepita for further sessions to cement the great progress made.
