About Us

Coaching from the heart

Coach from the Heart is an initiative established by me, Gillian Corke, offering Positive Discipline tools for families and youth sport coaches. I am married with three children. I am an educator with more than 20 years experience teaching in public and private schools, sports coaching, holiday clubs, lifeguarding, youth sport, event management, the cycling industry and international communications. I hold a 1st Class Music degree. My childhood was spent in North East England, swimming, dancing and making music. All with the support of my parents, sister, grandparents, teachers, coaches and wider community.

I am an AMI-trained Montessori Assistant for ages 3-6, 6-12, and 12-18 with the AMI Montessori Sports certificate. A Certified Positive Discipline Educator for Parents, the Classroom and Empowering People in the Workplace, I am a member of the Positive Discipline Association and Trainer Candidate.

(Me and my swim partner are also South West Region Masters Artistic Swimming Champions 2019 – shh, there was no-one else competing! )

Your name here?

I am looking for coaches and clubs to partner with to offer this important social and emotional development training. Please get in touch if that is you or your club. I’d love to hear from you.
