How to Help Our Children Flourish & Find Freedom with Fabienne Vailes

Fabienne Vailes is a UK expert on emotional and mental well-being in the education sector. With over 20 years’ experience teaching people of all ages – and as French Language Director at the University of Bristol – Fabienne is on a mission to change the face of education – by embedding well-being into the curriculum so students and staff flourish and succeed.

Fabienne has written two books – How to Grow a Grown-Up and The Flourishing Student – and is now testing her Flourishing Student Model in an educational setting.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Fabienne’s journey to freedom
  • the realisations she made as a parent that changed the course of her life and work
  • the value and power of mindfulness and awareness in living a happier life
  • what she witnessed changing in the education system and for young people more generally that caused her to develop the Flourishing Student Model
  • the results of her research into why some students flourish and some languish
  • how children with ADD and ADHD can flourish and be successful
  • the ten elements of the Flourishing Student Model
  • the power of the heart in education
  • the critical role of authenticity in helping young people flourish
  • why focusing on a student’s uniqueness will lead them to ultimate fulfilment and success.

Through her business, Flourishing Education, Fabienne works internationally, offering talks, workshops, programmes and private sessions on flourishing in education to leaders, teachers and learners of all levels.
