Thrive Licensed Practitioner
Our Pumpkin Pie Lead Teacher and Creative Learning Consultant, Ryan Hill is also a Thrive Licensed Practitioner. He is one of only a handful of individuals in the UK, licensed to practice the Thrive Approach outside of a school setting with children aged from 4 to 18.
The Thrive Approach is about developing emotional resilience in children. It places well-being at the centre of the learning, enabling to truly thrive – both emotionally and academically.
As a Thrive Licensed Practitioner Ryan Hill is equipped with the knowledge, tools and techniques to:
- Recognise if your child has gaps in their social and emotional development
- Create a detailed, age-appropriate Thrive Action Plan to support the family and (if relevant) the school
- Develop strategies to reduce anxiety and boost resilience, trust and a willingness to learn
The initial Thrive Assessment Session is with you, the parent/carer. Here you can have an open and honest discussion about your concerns for your child’s emotional development without them present. Typically, the session will take between 1 and 2 hours and together with Ryan you will complete the Thrive assessment process. The fee includes a detailed Thrive Action Plan for the family and for the school (if relevant). From here there is the option to meet with Ryan again for follow-up assessments (every 8 weeks if required). This enables the Thrive Action Plan to be updated to reflect your child’s progression since the previous assessment.
