Some of our results

“We had Paul in for two days to work with our staff team at the beginning of this year. It was an extremely valuable time and we learned so much from him. His relaxed and personable style put everyone at ease and at the end of the time the comments from the team were overwhelmingly positive about the experience. Highly recommended! ”

Simon Craggs, Principal, Onewhero Area School

“I found Paul’s workshop rejuvenating in terms of widening my view on student’s perception and behaviours in the classroom. I have recently applied some of his introduced theories and approaches to my own teaching practice and have found quite remarkable results in terms of enhanced student engagement. I would highly recommended his workshop.”

“Paul worked with us to pilot and develop a wellbeing workshop for our professional staff. He is a thoughtful and culturally adept facilitator who was able to prompt colleagues to think both deeply and broadly about the need for balance across different dimensions. Through insightful feedback and timely humour. Paul kept our team engaged and collaborating through the day.”

Kate Kearins – Dean, Faculty of Business, Economics and Law, AUT

“With wellbeing such an important issue for schools and communities, we have been fortunate to have Paul Tupou-Vea from Clifftop Wellbeing as part of our ongoing professional development programme. Paul is an engaging facilitator; he offers a range of topics and is flexible and responsive to our own school’s needs. What Paul brings is not a silver bullet, but a deeply thought through and well researched approach to support schools in addressing wellbeing issues.”
