welcome to pursuit


We help teachers, school leaders and all school staff manage stress, anxiety and daily school pressures, with practical, research-driven information and training.

Welcome! I’m Maria Brosnan, an educational leadership, health and wellbeing specialist, counsellor, author and coach.

I founded Pursuit Wellbeing to promote the health and wellbeing of teachers, leaders and school staff just like you.

Make time for you

How are you?

You won’t be surprised to learn that 78% of teachers and 84% of school leaders experienced symptoms of stress due to their work last year.

You might be here today because you feel anxious, overwhelmed, depressed or exhausted. Or you’re responsible for staff who are.

These are normal human responses to stress, but if unchecked can harm your health and wellbeing.

That’s why we developed wellbeing training courses, packed with practical, research-driven information to help you better understand and improve your health and wellbeing.

The proven benefits of healthy staff

Good staff wellbeing practices have a number of proven benefits, including:

  • Staff are more able to manage anxiety and stress with better coping strategies;
  • Staff feel valued, supported and invested in;
  • Leading to reduced sickness absence;
  • Increased productivity and engagement;
  • Improved retention and increased job satisfaction; and
  • Positive impact on pupils, including improved educational outcomes.

We offer health and wellbeing training for all school staff.
How can we help you today?

“The sessions with Maria lifted my day. Her gentle yet incisive approach brought clarity and enabled me to prioritise my thoughts and actions. The sessions were a lifeboat in a choppy sea.”
