Dave Read, inspirational speakers

Dave Read is a UK and international teacher, author and speaker on transforming everyday positive mental health and holistic wellbeing.

Dave Read is on a mission: to empower young people (ages 3-18+), teachers and school staff – and people working at all levels in companies and organisations – to actually change the way they Feel, Think and Act because positive mental health and wellbeing is so much more than “Mind” and brain.

They are only one part of the equation and do not play the predominant role we all seem to think. Instead, we are: Mind, Body and Feelings (MBF) all inseparably linked through a continuous Bio-Loop – because each feeling generates – or is the result of – a biochemical response. And everything we do is not first driven by a thought – but a feeling – from which corresponding thought(s) then emerge.

So, if you: Consciously Change the Feeling, You Change the Thought, Change the Action. And you can consciously change how you are feeling – as and when you want. Many approaches look to “think and/or talk yourself better”. But to “feel yourself well” is to change your biochemistry that will in time, create a less reactive and a calmer, more objective, perspective.

Book Dave Read

This is all part of an extensive “Positive Inputs Framework” – a framework that is at the heart of “CoolFire” – 20+ highly interactive workshops and programmes that enables both young people (ages 3-18+) and a range of adults working throughout the wider education sector to create an everyday state of “Energised Calm” as the basis of continuing emotional, mental and physical development.

In creating CoolFire, Dave Read has drawn on a unique mix of considerable experience– both as a classroom teacher (both primary and secondary) – and now almost 20 years working as a professional Healer/Therapist (similar to Reiki).

To date, he has actively led workshops and events with over 10,000 young people of all ages and 4,000 teachers/staff in schools and educational organisations throughout the UK and Europe – including: Thurrock, Southend and North Yorkshire Local Education Authorities; the NASUWT; the EU (in Austria); the MOFET Institute – Israel; Belgrade University Education faculty – and many more.

Based on the CoolFire Approach, Dave went on to create MyQuest – enabling people – working at all levels in companies and organisations – to fulfil their professional and personal potential through an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to their positive mental health and holistic wellbeing. He has worked with staff from a wide range of companies and organisations – including: Colchester and Southend Borough Councils; Proctor & Gamble; the NHS; HMRC; British Telecom; Rethink – and more.
