I help headteachers and school leaders manage stress, anxiety and daily school pressures,
with practical, research-driven information and training.

My mission is to empower headteachers, leaders and teachers like you,
to prioritise your health and wellbeing.

Together with Dr. Carla Stanton, I set up Pursuit Wellbeing, where we offer research-based tools, resources, and training, designed especially for educators.

About Me

I’m Maria Brosnan, an Educational Leadership, Health and Wellbeing Specialist, Counsellor, Author, Coach, and the Founder of Pursuit Wellbeing.

Balancing these multifaceted roles demands unwavering dedication and resilience.

I strongly believe that improving the health and wellbeing of our school leaders can profoundly change the trajectory of health and educational outcomes for our young people. 

Results & Testimonials

Bourne Education Trust has worked with Maria Brosnan from Pursuit Wellbeing for over the last year. She has provided hugely impactful resilience training to large numbers of our school and system leaders.

They are now able to better manage the daily workload pressures that characterise education and all report improved wellbeing, reduced anxiety and stress and better impact in the respective roles. Maria’s work has been transformational to those who have worked with her and I would recommend her to you without hesitation.

Alex Russell

CEO, Bourne Education Trust

Before I signed up to Heart Health, I believed that stress was part of the job and I just had to get used to it and accept that I would crash every holiday.

Since learning through the programme I have a completely different mindset. I understand far more about stress and what I can do to proactively manage my response “in the moment”. I would recommend all leaders (and anyone working in education) give themselves the gift of this learning.

Jo Hastings

Executive Headteacher, Ottershaw Christ Church Schools

I recently participated in the Heart Health program and it truly transformed the way I connect with myself and consequently how I dealt with life personally and professionally. The coaching was exceptional, providing clear guidance and support as I navigated through the various techniques and exercises. As a result, I now feel a deeper sense of self-awareness and a greater connection to my inner emotions and thoughts.

The program has equipped me with valuable tools to manage stress and maintain a positive mindset, making a noticeable impact on my personal and professional life. I highly recommend the Heart Health program to anyone seeking to deepen their connection with themselves and improve their overall well-being.
