Headship is getting harder and we are well aware of the increasing demands it places on those in post.

We very strongly recommend coaching but we would also like to recommend an excellent clinical psychologist who is working with heads.

Dr Matthew Evans is an experienced clinical psychologist with more than a decade of experience working in the NHS and he is now building a practice working with head teachers, helping them unload and process what they are dealing with. One head told us that he feels ‘lighter after each session’ and described his conversations with Matthew as ‘one of the best things I have done for a long time’. Matthew draws on a range of psychological approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic and Systemic approaches.

We do not have any kind of financial arrangement with Matthew but we are pleased to provide a link to his website here
