Student Success Coaching

Coaching Supports Your Well-being and Academic Success

We believe that all students are capable of developing the capacity to be successful learners. Students who are interested in taking action towards enhancing their resilience and well-being and achieving their academic goals are encouraged meet with our Success Coach. Students who have been coached report feeling more confident and calm and take action to achieve their aspirations.

Rising to the Challenge of Uncertainty

We are all currently being challenged to shift into remote learning and working with the new current reality.  A whole-person approach is taken in coaching through this Success Coaching and does include developing self-regulation in learning. However, during these trying times, the following desires for yourself might be most important right now:

  • You want to learn how to maintain inner calm and confidence when faced with challenging circumstances
  • You want to develop lifelong strategies for self-compassion and acceptance
  • You are looking for ways to improve your ability to adapt to change, uncertainty, and ambiguity

  • Watch this Video to learn how to book an appointment with the Success Coach. 
  • Success Coaching Appointments are all virtual via phone or web-video conference (zoom) during this time of "social distancing".
  • Go to to create your free account today and start meeting face to face from the comfort of your own home with the coach as she works from home.

Collaborate to gain support for personal & professional development and improving self-regulation of learning, well-being and success.

If you elect to start with a workshop, research would strongly suggest you engage in follow-up coaching conversations in order to put the new knowledge and skills learned in the workshop into practice.

“The authors found that while their training intervention with managers increased manager productivity by 22%, adding a one-to-one (8-week) coaching intervention after the training pushed productivity to 88%”
