Dr G Optimal Potential

“Dr G’s Optimal Potential programmes optimises outcomes by providing expertise in learning diversity, to help students achieve their best”

Just for a moment, allow yourself to think of education as being like a jigsaw puzzle. If one jigsaw piece is missing there is a gap and if there’s a gap the final picture can never come to life as a vivid, pleasing, completed result. Optimal Potential exists in order to identify and bridge these learning gaps such that the educational shift which takes is not merely transactional but wholly transformational. Optimal Potential’s Specialist Team led by Dr Geraldine Townend galvanises together years of professional experience to help you get the very best results. Imagine your diverse world of learning being supported by caring experts who are intelligently guiding you toward Less Stress, Better Grades and Increased Confidence.


Dr G’s Optimal Potential brings together cognitive, educational and psychology specialists

These experts establish the unique learning pathways for individuals bridging the gap between schools, teachers and health care professionals
