What's important to us

Advocating Adolescents 

Positive Anger Coaching will skyrocket their confidence, inflate their resilience, and electrify assertive behaviour

Supercharge Thriving Teachers

Because when a teacher is glowing, they’re teaching better – and that means they're lighting up the lives of young people

Powerfying Positive Parents

Other than peers, and teachers, parents are the primary source and epicenter of a young person’s development.

How We've Changed Lives

‘It has helped me realise what I do when I am angry and how to control it.’

Young Person - From our CHAMP programme

Why We're Here

Partnering with teachers and parents to build a world where all children are resilient, thriving, and flourishing

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that all children have the right to relax and play (Article 31), the right to freedom of expression (Article 13), and the right to be safe from violence (Article 19).

Children exposed to unhealthy anger are at greater risk of becoming aggressive adults. 

Ascend (previously known as Tristone Coaching) is a social enterprise with the aim to improve the lives of young people affected by anger – either their own or witnessed in others, and to enhance teacher wellbeing, cultivate positive parents, and develop influential leaders.

We aim to implement an evidence-based anger management programme that will ameliorate and alleviate anger in all young people nationwide. To achieve this, the aim is to role out efficiently trained Positive Anger Coaches to deliver the CHAMP initiative within their community.

In doing this, the positive behavioural and emotional changes in individuals will improve, develop, and build stronger relationships. This is the foundation for achieving potential and prosperity, as well as creating flourishing and thriving communities.

Our main aim is to improve the lives of young people affected by anger – and to facilitate a positive change within angry adults too. 


For all young people to manage their anger, build resilience, and communicate assertively so that they can flourish and thrive now, and in their future. For mental wellbeing professionals to implement our evidence-based anger management initiative CHAMP within all UK schools.


Anger can be beneficial – when explored, utilised, and expressed in the right way. We help transform anger into a mindful function and develop assertive behaviour in individuals so that they can flourish and thrive within their community.
