Empower Education

Empower Education is an emotional health education centre, supporting the mental health and wellbeing of young people, parents and teachers.

Empower Education are so passionate about making a difference in people’s lives and their programmes provide each person with a toolkit of life skills that will help them understand and manage their emotions, become more self aware, believe in themselves, see their potential and strive to reach it.

“My vision is to make a difference to as many children’s lives as possible. I am on a mission to change the face of mental health in schools, to work towards getting emotional intelligence into the curriculum, and into teacher training, because it is a crucial subject that needs to be taught to enable children to know how to be their best version of themselves, be empathic and know how to be emotionally resilient and how to manage their emotions. This naturally leads to more success in life, in academic achievement, in relationships and with themselves.”Jackie Wilson, Founder of Empower Education.
