About Molly Potter


Molly Potter started out as a scientist. However, she soon realised that chemistry did not have abundant opportunities for working with people and they were what really interested her - so she jumped ship and trained as a primary school teacher. She has subsequently worked with children and in education in a variety of guises for a long time.

The first books Molly had published were in creative thinking, problem solving and personal, social and health education (PSHE) and aimed at teachers. Later, she moved on to write picture books that help young children with tricky emotions and situations. Her honest, open, down-to-earth approach leaves children informed and reassured.

Molly has also delivered training to a variety of organisations in the field of wellbeing. Whatever training Molly Potter has been asked to develop and deliver, she has thoroughly enjoyed packing in lots of fun, thought-provocation and of course, learning. Her lively style is infectious and her training sessions usually get everyone going!
