Next Chapter work with children over the age of 8 and adults. They’re passionate about helping people to develop more understanding about themselves – their brains, their bodies and the direct link between the two.
The team are passionate to help you take your confidence up a notch and make the changes in life that you want to. Once you’ve got that self-belief and you know how to summon it, you’ll feel more empowered and able to ‘own’ your personal wellbeing and the choices you want to make to maintain it.
Next Chapter is where personal development, wellness and education meet; a group of people that allow you to become more self-aware and a place to develop new skills, strategies and plans you’re your future. Wanting to support you gain clarity on what your Next Chapter looks like, to set yourself goals and really define where you would like to see change in your life.
As a team they bring a lot of personal and professional experience to our advice and we combine a variety of approaches, aimed to suit a wide range of needs, meeting you ‘where you are’ and taking it from there. For some people, that may require some 121 mentoring or coaching or for others maybe group workshops or courses. Whichever approach best suits your needs, all are designed to empower you to identify where you are feeling a bit stuck in life, to work out what your obstacles are and create a plan to overcome them and move forward. The team are here because they want everyone to be the best version of themselves, the one that gets up in the morning, stands tall and says to themselves – I can, I will… watch me.
