Rae Farmer - The Emotional Resilience Strategist

Next Steps - learning for life is a social enterprise based in the North of England offering bespoke training, consultancy, life coaching and mindfulness in order to encourage the development and enhancement of emotional resilience, emotional intelligence and positive coping strategies.  (c)         

Est. 2013 Next Steps has supported 100's of teachers in the North East to explore positive coping strategies to develop their resilience levels for the world of education, explored how challenging behaviour in the classroom has an impact for the individual teacher, led workshops to explore the impact of self-harm and mental distress and provided consultation on issues related to domestic and sexual violence.  We are now delivering Resilience Supervision for Pastoral Staff and front line workers effected by working with trauma.  

We have developed our own emotional risk assessment (ERA) and provide training and consultancy for line managers to explore the potential risks and possible solutions to minimise risks within supervision sessions.  This tool is currently being used within private home care settings, education and is currently in negotiation to be used within the Healthy Business Awards scheme for Newcastle City Council.  


"Imagine if everyone in our society had the skills and knowledge to effectively manage life's storms! 

There would be minimal mental distress, less days away from employment due to depression, anxiety and stress.

OUR communities would be filled with positive thinking optimistic individuals."
