Teaching has long been regarded as a stressful job, but a forward thinking school in Cambridgeshire has found a new approach to help keep staff relaxed and smiling.

Fawcett Primary School in Trumpington has just completed another session of alternative therapy taster sessions for staff provided by complementary therapist, Christine Charters-Young and hypnotherapist Sarah Turner.

Christine originally worked with the school offering yoga and relaxation classes to the youngsters and it prompted the decision to offer her the chance to work with the staff.

Head teacher Judith Osler explained: “Our Governors were keen for our staff’s well being to be considered and investigated ways in which the school could provide a programme of treatments which could contribute to relieving some of the stress and strains which accompanies life in school.”

The school ensures each teacher’s classes are covered while they sample 20-30 minute taster sessions of anything from reflexology, massage and reiki to hypnotherapy.

Christine’s therapies help staff relax and improve their general well being leaving them better able to deal with the pressures of everyday living.

And, according to Judith, they have certainly proved to be beneficial. “The staff feel they can have a short break from their busy day to relax, enjoy the health benefits of the treatments and generally feel more valued as a workforce,” she said.

For Sarah, hypnotherapy offers another method of relaxation but can also help people achieve personal goals they may have set.

She said: “Hypnotherapy leaves you more energised so that you approach your goals whether they be to lose weight or stop smoking with a far more positive attitude.”

Such is the success of the scheme that Christine’s work place sessions have become a termly event and she is also working in other workplaces, such as prisons, helping staff combat stress as well as with older school children preparing for exams”.
