COACHING ACADEMY

Reset has a base in the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 
We deliver our retreats, programmes, activities, and Community of Practice across the UK.

OUR STORY

Established in 2019 by two friends, a counter-terrorism police officer and an ICU doctor, the purpose and intent of Reset was formed over several years of walks and talks, lived experiences and bearing witness to challenges faced by friends and colleagues.

It is this cross-sector experience that is fundamental to Reset’s DNA. It is a cornerstone of everything we do. The benefit of shared understanding and learning, compassion and empathy across emergency responder frontline experiences had a profound effect. It gave strength, helped manage stress and built mental and physical resilience.
