Mental health and wellbeing and peer to peer support for headteachers school leaders

Headteachers in Wales wellbeing service


We’re all human and experience challenges in life and work.

Are you a headteacher?  Would you like access to services focused on improving your mental health and wellbeing?

Education Support can offer limited free spaces for headteachers to participate in the following services, both funded by Welsh Government. (If you work in England visit our English headteachers service). 

Facilitated peer support

Our online service brings school leaders together to discuss challenges and issues in a safe and supportive space.

You will receive four 90 minute sessions, as a group of six other headteachers. Your sessions will be facilitated by a qualified facilitator.  


Individual supervision

Accredited counsellors help you to reflect, and process any difficult feelings that result from work-life challenges. You will receive four one-to-one sessions by telephone.



Places on this pilot are offered without charge to headteachers currently working in schools in Wales. If you are not eligible at this stage, please register your interest. Depending on the findings of this pilot, we may seek to extend the service to a wider group of participants later in 2021. The programme team will seek to achieve a spread of participants from across Wales and from different types of schools. Registration will close as soon as programme places are fully allocated.

Workplace wellbeing advice for your school

We are also offering free workplace wellbeing support through our Schools Advisory Service for Wales. We will provide your school with resources and advice on policies and practices that support staff wellbeing, based on best practice.
