Well-being in students: External pressure and internal coping.

In this episode we’re talking about well-being and mental health. Natasha Devon MBE and Dr Dominique Thompson talk to Nathan McGurl, founder of the Study Buddy.

We’re following 6 very different students as they work towards their GCSEs in summer 2021 in this 2nd season. Each week I’ll be catching up with each of them in a 1-2-1 coaching session. Then, a panel of experts will discuss some of the issues that crop up in one of our podcast episodes.

Over the past week all of our GCSE students have talked to different extents about feelings of anxiety, nervousness and pressure. Our experts look at the situations that can cause this. Importantly they also look at the internal strengths and skills that our young people need to build resilience and how we, as parents, can support them.

In this podcast, Dom talks about her free 5 step guide to supporting your teen in the autumn of COVID19. You can find that here: and her latest book “Stay Balanced“.

Listen to Natasha’s fantastic podcast “Staying Sane in Quarantine” – once you’ve listened to this episode 😉 And be sure to check out her book: “Ace Your Exams Without Losing Your Mind
