WELCOME TO MY CLASSROOM
TEACHERS, WE NEED TO TALK
Most teachers feel great passion for what they do – it fuels them to do their best work for their students every day (and often after the day is over). The trouble is, too many long, exhausting days can leave even the most passionate teachers running on empty. My experience as a teacher was no exception. Although I loved the job and my students, I faced a serious struggle with burnout – and after watching many of my peers run out of steam
and leave their teaching positions altogether, I decided that it was about time to do things differently.
No matter how low your energy reserves are, it’s never too late or too early to learn a few important lessons about your wellbeing and happiness. With my hard-earned knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm on your side, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy school again.
I was fortunate enough to work alongside Meg for several years and cannot speak highly enough of her professionalism, her positive attitude, her broad-ranging knowledge of and passion for education and wellbeing issues, her commitment to sharing this knowledge and passion with other educators and, above all, her ability to work effectively with people from all walks of life and backgrounds, young and old alike. Students and teachers who have the opportunity to work with Meg should jump at the chance.

Energy By Design was a game-changer. It made me reflect on how I was currently living my life, and how I actually wanted to be living it. Meg inspired me to bring awareness to my choices and make small, achievable changes that had an incredibly positive impact not only on my life but for those around me. I came away from the course feeling able to make better decisions, more confident in myself and best of all, more energised. Meg was kind and compassionate, and her approach to wellbeing just made sense. The course was relatable, practical and based in psychology and neuroscience, with a good dose of warm humour too. There aren't too many experiences that have such a positive impact on your life, but for me completing Energy By Design was formative.
