Calmer Kids is a unique, tailored programme designed to help children understand and manage their emotions.
Emotions and behaviour are affected by internal thoughts and external situations which our brain interprets and tries to make sense of. Helping children to identify where their stress and anxiety stems from can have a huge impact on how they manage their feelings and deal with their rising emotions. Our emotions are our defence mechanism to protect and support us in troubling times, however, despite being a natural response, we are able to control them so we are not in a constant state of angst or sadness.
Through a careful blend of mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques, healing and meditation, I will support your child in understanding their emotions, help them identify their 'Zones of Regulations' and build resilience to scaffold difficult situations.
My bespoke Calmer Kids programme will support children’s ability to manage their emotions and educate them in how their brain and automatic responses work. As I guide them through their feelings, connecting with their senses and through sensory exercises, I will teach them strategies to manage their behaviour, teaching then to understand how to change their thought patterns through positive thinking, problem-solving situations and outcomes and encouraging them to listen to their inner voice.
Each session we will explore their emotions and through a range a stimuli, including crystals, colour therapy, essential oils and sound, they will be able to. This is combined with CBT techniques and expertise drawn from my 20 years of primary and special needs teaching in schools.
Behaviour isn’t just acting out, it is turning inwards, crying, sleep difficulties, changing eating habits and OCD behaviours. These are just a few ways in which emotions can affect a person.

Family life can be busy, stressful and overwhelming at times. With work, homework, clubs and social commitments, there is sometimes little time left for bonding together and communicating with each other. Sibling rivalry, arguments and changes in the family dynamics can also disrupt the quality of family life.
Spending time together can be one of the greatest gifts you can achieve as a family as strong family bonds can make everyone feel loved, understood, secure whilst giving them a sense of belonging.
These ‘Calmer Kids – Family Sessions’ can be stand-alone or booked as a bundle. During the session we will explore emotions through the senses, tap into individual feelings, experience a relaxation technique, be guided through a calming and relaxing meditation, be given a short yoga flow and ending with a healing experience.

With the increase of emotional stress, anxiety and fluctuating low moods in our daily lives at present, a healing session would be a perfect gift to support your child’s emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.
Maybe there have been changes in your child’s life from school setting, changes at home, bereavement in the family, arrival of a new sibling or pressures of exams. These changes create an impact on their emotions and sometimes they are unsure how deal with such strong emotions.
Healing is a gentle yet powerful universal energy which is used to help restore and balance the body's emotions. Working with the body’s energy, the healing vibrations will help to release blocked energy which can build up over time, leaving them feeling calmer, happier and more relaxed. Healing raises their self-awareness and teaches them the importance of self-care, regulation and keeps them grounded.
Experiencing a healing session is like having a weight lifted from your shoulders. It is a warm hug, a grounding experience, comforting, calming and relaxing whilst bringing reassurance of support and understanding. Healing is safe, non-evasive, nurturing and magical.
Reduces stress and anxiety, boosts self-esteem and confidence, improves sleep, increases concentration, teaches the importance of self-care, encourages positive mind-set, grounding, boosts energy levels
