2022 UPDATE: Over the past two years, things have changed a fair bit here at Skills with Frills, just as they have for many of us. Though I’m booked out in school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the year, the bulk of my time is now spent writing – the silver lining to recent events! 

I am available to deliver one-off mindfulness/wellbeing sessions to students or staff, remotely if needed. Any visits in person will be undertaken in compliance with the latest DfE COVID-19 safety guidance/school policy. (Click here to view our Risk Assessment.) 

Check out my stories on the ‘Slumber’ app, or the ‘Get Sleepy‘ podcast (available on Apple, Google, Spotify and more!)

 Or If you’re interested in child-friendly mindfulness, you might enjoy my lockdown project – 100 days of mindfulness, here on my YouTube channel.


Jo Steer is a UK teacher with a unique mix of experience and skills, working in infant, primary and secondary schools across West Yorkshire, delivering bespoke wellbeing packages on a supply basis.

Her passion for mindfulness-based holistic education, led by her own first-hand experiences of anxiety from childhood, make her the ideal school visitor amidst such turbulent times. Alongside years of classroom experience (specialising in the teaching of Life Skills and students with Special Educational Needs), she is a qualified Forest School practitioner, a Yogakidz instructor and has training in CBT essentials and mindfulness for children and adults. 

From one-off mindfulness masterclasses, weekly wellbeing supply cover to year-long PSHE delivery (accompanied by delivery of the Skills with Frills curriculum) there’s something for everyone. Emotional intelligence and resilience are at the heart of all that we do.  In all sessions, the emphasis is on providing a mix of skills, knowledge and practical takeaways that students can use immediately to better their mood, mindset and mental health in a lasting and meaningful way. 

Explore the services currently on offer for different groups/individuals here and feel free to check out either Jo’s articles in TES or in the Skills with Frills Blog and by all means, help yourself to any of our free resources for use with your children/students. Want more still? See Jo’s sister site, Anxious.Ambition.com, for frequent blog posts specifically relating to anxiety, wellbeing and happiness.
